Way back in 91 when I bought a CD player and ushered myself in to the 21st century, I kept a foot planted firmly in the past as this was the first disc (more accurately, 4 discs) that I bought. I will have future entries on Led Zeppelin, as their music seems to be intertwined in my life. For now, this is a good place to address those symbols that we always thought were sooo cool:

Ooh, so mysterious.
And, in the days before Google, we couldn't just type it in and look it up, so there was much speculation. A little digging turns up the explanation that they wanted to avoid the hype and any names on LZ IV, so they chose these cryptic marks to symbolize themselves. More on that later.
