Unedited Controversial Pre-Led Zeppelin Recording Goes Online
In September of 1968, well before they became a rock n roll legends, American singer P.J. Proby recruited Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham to perform on his studio album entitled Three Week Hero. Plant handled the harmonica as his other band mates performed on their instruments. This is the debut for this unedited version on Youtube, others posted online have edited out the first minute and a half. For the sake of historical preservation, TMD has chosen to provide the original track just as it was featured on the original release.

Beyond that, the listener will be treated to a very special moment when a young bunch of English rock musicians were getting poised to start a rock n roll revolution. Check it out here
