I'm just putting this up because my friend Skid posted a thing on Facebook, with the Jake Holmes (original) version of "Dazed and Confused." I hadn't ever given any thought to the songs origin, beyond knowing that the Yardbirds did it earlier than Led Zeppelin. Plain or Pan has posted the Holmes original and two versions of Led Zeppelin's, the studio version and an eighteen minute live version from 1971 (for you ultra freaks). For now, here's a video of the Yardbirds version, towards the end, when Jimmy Page was in the band. Plain or Pan posted it too, but I'm just filling space. Plus, if you're lazy, you can get bored without even leaving this post.
