Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. How many Led Zeppelin STUDIO albums were originally released?

Answer: 8

'Led Zeppelin' (I, II, III), 'Led Zeppelin - Untitled' (IV or Runes), 'Houses of the Holy', 'Physical Graffiti', 'Presence', and 'In Through The Out Door'. I originally had 'Coda' as their final studio release (which it technically is), but because of a few responses disputing this since it is mainly a compilation of left over material, I've taken it out.
2. What legendary Blues artist wrote, 'You Shook Me' and 'I Can't Quit You Baby'?

Answer: Willie Dixon

Both Zeppelin versions of these songs appeared on their first album.
3. Robert Plant's young son tragically died of a respiratory virus in 1977. What was his name?

Answer: Karac

Robert Plant later recorded 'All of My Love' as a dedication to his late son.
4. A tougher one: What is the name of Robert Plant's daughter?

Answer: Carmen

Maureen was his wife's name.
5. Who recorded 'Dancing Days' on the Zeppelin tribute album, 'Encomium'?

Answer: Stone Temple Pilots

Fun note: Several years earlier, a compilation of artists created tribute albums entitled 'The Song Retains The Name' (2 albums-Volumes 1 and 2). It featured several undergound artists with some very eclectic interpretations of Zep songs. Tough to find.
6. What Led Zeppelin recording was released for the first time EVER on their 4 DISC box set in 1990?

Answer: Travelling Riverside Blues

Written by Page, Plant, and Robert Johnson. 'Hey Hey, What Can I Do?' was also released on this box set. While it never appeared on any earlier Zeppelin albums, it was previously released as a single.
7. Name ONE of the two Led Zeppelin recordings released for the first time EVER on their 2 DISC set in 1993?

Answer: Baby Come On Home

'Baby Come On Home' or 'White Summer'.
8. During Led Zeppelin's early days of touring, the band was billed briefly as The ____ to appease the German Baroness Von Zeppelin.

Answer: Nobs

They called themselves The New Yardbirds before changing the name to Led Zeppelin. During the Baroness controversy, they chose the tongue-in-cheek name change, The Nobs - English slang for the male sex organ.
9. What is Led Zeppelin's LONGEST studio recorded song?

Answer: In My Time of Dying

In My Time of Dying-11:04, Carouselambra-10:32, Achilles Last Stand-10:22, Tea For One-9:27
10. Toughest question: Credited with much technical mastery in the studio, what particular sound effect did Jimmy Page invent?

Answer: Reverse echo

Page was a pioneer in many respects. Notorious as a perfectionist with his studio arrangements.
