Zep's full cover best audio of the classic hit by Scott McKenzie. Lyrics by John Phillips, music and guitar by Jimmy Page. A brilliant pre-cursor to Presence. Zeppelin at their peak or very nearly so. Extracted from Dazed and Confused on The Song Remains The Same movie and double-live album, NYC, 1973.

This edit and title by MJmcnult. (Other YouTube versions are incomplete, and titled differently). Alternate HD uploads copy this edit and do not give credit (e.g. upload by Sebastian Mancilla). Regretably, YouTube keeps reducing the video and sound quality of my upload.


To the few dislikers...
Yes, the vocal is out of tune at first and of course the song sounds nothing like the original. But if you put this clip into context, that is, as a bit of fun in a showcase for Jimmy Page's guitar playing, then its greatness cannot be denied. This "song" is actually just a short detour within a twenty-five minute guitar solo. For all I know it could be totally improvised.

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
