Vary late one Spring Morning Afternoon, Led Zep opened their bedroom curtains in Montreux and found that Frank Zappa and the Mama''s had grabbed the best recording studio on the Lake Geneva shoreline, and burnt the place to the ground. As the smoke cleared slowly from the water this aparation drifted into view. At that point Led Zep decided to stop taking LSD, well till the record company wanted a follow up album.
