The Eye of the Acoustic Storm

Led Zeppelin III

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted in "The Eye of The Acoustic Storm." Hourly segments of "The Eye" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

Led Zeppelin's third album has a strong folk-rock component.  Recorded at the cottage known as Bron-Yr-Aur in Wales, the band's acoustic instincts were evident songs like "That's the Way" and "Gallow's Pole" (which was based on an old English folk ballad).
