Led Zeppelin, the I

For whatever reason, today was Led Zeppelin day. Always loved the first album.  I'd had it for many years before someone told me Jimmy Page's guitar on the album was a Telecaster.  Listening to I Can't Quit You Baby, it was natural to assume it was a Gibson ES 335.

Nope, it was a Telecaster - same as on Communications Breakdown, the world's first angry punk song.

I'm not the world's biggest fan of I Can't Quit You Baby, which I think of as a Savoy Brown song, but hell, it's a fuck of a version.

Led Zep 1 - always was my favourite Led Zep record.

But now in middle age, where I'm more interested in musicology than music, I wonder whence songs like Communication Breakdown or Paranoid or My Generation? There doesn't seem to be any antecedents. (Not that there's any reason why something can't be original, but...)
