You Better Run / Everybody's Gonna Say

Columbia : 4-43967 (45s)

A Led Zeppelin dedicate alert!

USA November 1966 press, with Robert Plant on vocals, an important and rare piece in the Led Zeppelin jigsaw.

The British CBS release had a slight typo on the a-side title with "You'd Better Run" as Robert Plant and friends picking up on the July UK release of Young Rascals - You Better Run - issued by UK Polydor on red Atlantic 584024 written by Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati, considered something of a Northern Soul dancer, that reached the top 20 in the USA but failed to attract airplay inb the UK.

To be fair to this cover version, Robert Plant his voice is much richer than the original. Quite an amazing vocal presence for an 18 year old with a personal passion for black-music. His rich, booming vocal well suited to R&B. On the flipside he writes with friends Geoff Thompson, John Crutchley, Roger Beamer his own thumping R&B "Black Country style". Strong Soul influences with Robert Plant's snarling vocal riding bl;aring brass boosts, adorned with squealing girl-group voice and relentless driving percussion.

Which ever side you drop the arm on, Plant's muscular voice collides with you head-on. This teenager was always going to do well in the music industry with a vocal well beyond his years.

Less than 18 months later Jimmy Page searching for a lead vocalist for his "New Yardbirds" group, to concentrate on R&B heard him sing, and recruited him for his new band, which never got called "The New Yardbirds" at all ... but became "Led Zeppelin" the rest is history - before you today is that mighty young voice captured on a very elusive 1966 USA Columbis press as the unknown band "Listen".
