3 stars 'Early Days: Volume One' - Led Zeppelin (Compilation)

This is a very good compilation of the band's earlier works (encompassing the first to fourth Zeppelin's work.) However, this compilation really can't be complete without it's companion, the latter days half. On the 'Latter Days' compilation, there are classics like 'Kashmir' and 'The Song Remains The Same' that for chronological reasons cannot be put on here.

Constraints of the compilation aside, this is a pretty good choice of songs for the band up to that point in their career. The only song that could have possibly been left out was the droney 'Dazed and Confused' which although being a popular song could have made way for so many other classics such as 'Heartbreaker' or 'Ramble On.'

Good compilation of early material, but really shines with it's companion.
