Deep Cuts From 1971: ‘The Battle Of Evermore’- Led Zeppelin. From their landmark Led Zeppelin IV album released in November 1971- ‘The Battle Of Evermore’- is a folk duet sung by Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and Sandy Denny of Fairport Convention. The song was written by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. It started when Plant picked up Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones’s mandolin – he had never played the mandolin before this- and Plant wrote the chords to the song in one sitting. Lyrically the song makes references to a favorite Led Zeppelin theme- The Lord Of The Rings- by J.R.R. Tolkien.

  1. This song was my first introduction to the wonderful voice of Sandy Denny. My uncle, after finding out I liked this song, then lent me a couple of his Fairport Convention albums to swoon over!

  2. This is one I would skip at one time from this album and then it grew on me and I love it. Her voice is incredible.
