Stephen Davis is best known for Hammer of the Gods, a tell-all tale about Zeppelin. He returns to the mighty quartet in this book based on notes he took from the band's 1975 tour. The notebooks, placed in a dresser drawer, had been seemingly lost for 30 years. Davis finally found the notes, and LZ-'75 is based on those on-the-spot memories.

In 1975, Davis was given entree to the band, and between January and March of that year, he covered Zeppelin's tenth American tour. He kept three notebooks detailing the daily progress of the tour, with entries varying from the personal to character sketches. It's a fun and insightful peek behind the curtains of what was then one of the world's most powerful bands.

Led Zeppelin gets covered just about as often as any other band out there. A recent book called Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin by Jon Bream was about as dull and unexciting as any book about the band could be. He did little more than re-circulate the interviews of other writers; the closest he'd ever gotten to the band himself was watching them onstage. That book was a complete waste. But Davis was there and tells us things we've never heard before.

This is one book on Zep that's worth having on the shelf.
