BBC: Some guy digging in a Scottish basement found a tape of an early work-in-progress of Stairway to Heaven

You'll need a Realplayer though as it's in that format.

LOL!
Though I do think I liked the original version a little better.

Very interesting... the lyrics are almost completely different, except few pharases here and there - I cann't quite make them out... Do you have the words? Where did you read about that and was there more info I can read?

Well....although not a traditionalist I feel a need for a token nod towards April Fool's Day even if the attempt is meagre.


As for the song it can be found on Robert Plant's website under multimedia . That Robert hosts Stairway to Heaven Parodies on his site is cool. Although a very prickly personality it's good to see him lighten up, particularly regarding Led Zep material (sold his rights in the early 80's=no money for Robert, but 1/3 decision on creative use/release=relative absence of releases
Jimmy is the man now).
