Video: The original Led Zeplin Dazed and Confused by unknown Jake Holmes

Dazed and Confused was written by the folk-rock singer Jake Holmes and released as a track in his debut album "The Above Ground Sound" Of Jake Holmes in 1967. That same year Jake Holmes opened for The Yardbirds in a show in New York where Jimmy Page heard the song. The song was rearranged and later became one of Led Zeppelin's best-known songs, the debt to Jake Holmes however went largely unacknowledged by the band.  UPDATE: Jake Holmes is now suing Jimmy Page for proceeds from the song. Question is: Why did he wait this long?

Probably because it doesn't sound anything like Dazed and Confused - maybe that's what Jake Holmes is now - but he wasn't before. You need to go back on the pills Jake. Rearranged from your song is stretching it somewhat.
