We have included Led Zeppelin II, originally released on Atlantic Records in 1969, as one of our Recommended Recordings. Also see our page on Led Zeppelin.
This album brought some legal issues about plagiarism against Led Zeppelin. The song Whole Lotta Love was considered an unauthorised copy of You Need Love by Muddy Waters; Howlin’ Wolf sued Led Zeppelin over the use of the primary riff from his composition Killing Floor; the matter was settled out of court. The well known lyric for The Lemon Song was taken from Travelin’ Riverside Blues by Robert Johnson.
