"Babe I'm Gonna Leave You” released by Led Zeppelin on January 12, 1969

"Babe I'm Gonna Leave You” released by Led Zeppelin on January 12, 1969

Although, on any given day, "Good Times Bad Times" is my favorite tune from the 1969 debut album “Led Zeppelin,” which was recorded in October 1968 and released on January 12, 1969, second among equals from that album is the Led Zeppelin cover of the 1950s song by Anne Johannsen, "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You.”

Joan Baez and The Association also covered this tune, at some point in time earlier in the 1960s; however the Led Zeppelin cover version has also remained my favorite…

"Good Times Bad Times" was the featured single and opening track on the album. It was released as a single on March 10, 1969.

I still, to this day, remember when the album was released and at one point in time, I could tell you the title of every song on the album - and I knew most of the lyrics to almost every song on the album… I wish I still had a 8-track tape copy of the album. Now that would be a treasure…LOL
