Babe I am Gonna Leave You

Joan Baez



Led Zeppelin's version is so much better, both the link and the one below.

Yep, the LZ version seems richer. That said, Baez's lyrics are more spartan and understandable, and LZ jumbles and confuses them to accompany their richer musical accompanyment. But given lyrics (mind/message) vs. music (heart/aesthetics), music wins out.

Thanks for sharing, Jack.

Zeppelin's version just resonates with me.
