Description

Black Dog was composed by the band's guitarist Jimmy Page and singer Robert Plant with the band’s Bassist John Paul Jones credited with writing the main riff. James Patrick Page OBE is an English musician who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin. Page is prolific in creating guitar riffs and his varied style involves various alternative guitar tunings, technical and melodic solos coupled with aggressive, distorted guitar tones as well as his folk and eastern-influenced acoustic work. He is also noted for occasionally playing his guitar with a cello bow to create a droning sound texture to the music. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time and has been described by Rolling Stone magazine as "the pontiff of power riffing”. Robert Anthony Plant CBE is an English singer and songwriter, best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the English rock band Led Zeppelin for all of its existence from 1968 until 1980, when the band broke up following the death ofJohn Bonham, the band's drummer. Plant developed a compelling image as the charismatic rock-and-roll front man, similar to contemporaries such as Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones, Roger Daltrey of the Who, Jim Morrison of the Doors and Freddie Mercury of Queen.

“Many recordings over the last few decades have demonstrated the superb quality of British brass playing; 'Under the Spell of Spain' will rightfully take its place among them.”
