T he single from Led Zeppelin featured the relentless “Immigrant Song” as the A side and the acoustic “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do” on the flip. “Immigrant Song” marked the beginning of the band’s fantasy-fueled mini-epics as well as an embrace of exotic sounds, notably Robert Plant’s anguished howl at the onset. The B side is no slouch either, as ingratiating a melody as they’ve written couched in an acoustic arrangement that makes the idea of a cuckolded Plant (inconceivable, I know) seem believable. Of minor interest, the label credits both songs to the album Led Zeppelin III, though the B side in fact never appeared on that (or any) Zep album until the 1990 box set. The single was issued several times into the 1980s with the same ID number, but thankfully Tim Neely has provided distinguishing characteristics for each in his 45 rpm Record Guide.
