I’ve got to stop looking around on the internet.
Has anyone heard of Jake Holmes? Yea, me too. I came across this clip on YouTube and it sent me looking for more. I found far more than I wanted to. Jake Holmes\' story is here. It’s fascinating in that the song in question Jimmy Page denies ever hearing Jake Holmes sing. Odd, when you find a Yardbirds cover of that tune while Page was with them and Holmes supported them on tour briefly. If you read the first line of that story, I believe anyone will want to read the rest.
I found a three part post on YouTube detailing all the plagiarizing that seems to slip into Led Zeppelin songs. They’ve been sued a half dozen times or so and had to chamge the credits on their albums more than once. In another case, a song writer was credited on the first pressing, then mysteriously disappeared on all after that.
The first clip was on the pictured album from 1967, written and performed by Jake Holmes. The second clip is from Zeppelin’s first album, 1968, and credited to Jimmy Page.
