Written by Nicky Hopkins.
Produced by Glyn Johns.
Bass provided by John Paul Jones.

"Everyone agreed to work for minimum wage -- except for Jimmy Page, who did the session in exchange for the publishing rights to the two original compositions on the album. Classic Jimmy."

Les Fleur De Lys. Circles/So Come On. 1966.

Mr. Jimmy Page, AKA the Dark Prince, on guitar in this psych shred fest.

Lonnie Mack. Asphalt Outlaw Hero. 1971.

Usually I tire pretty quickly of these blue collar anthems, but Lonnie Mack happens to be one of the baddest shredders that ever existed, and this riff is a testament to that. So pull up your Big Boy's and adjust your turquoise belt buckle. #squeedle
