I love this album. And @daverussell 3 7 , I believe it actually is a banjo. I happen to play one. It may be a 6 string banjo-guitar , as opposed to a traditional 5 string banjo. Def doesnt sound like a mando to me...

It's a mandolin... Not a banjo. Dork!

Yes I do. Must be over-dubbing , or something like it. Really fits!

Do I hear a banjo?

Maybe it's based on geography. :-)

Not sure how gallows pole wound up on a southern rock station, but thanks anyway. Love this song!

Legendary quality. Virtuosity untold. Traditional wleded to rock. A classic.

Maybe Southern English Rock at its finest.

Just one great example of Zepp's collective genius. LZ 3 was a mindblower for many. It is still top shelf tunes.

This is very similar to what his Band of Joy is doing now!

boncer3 has a good point. when i saw robert plant in 2005, every other tune in the set was a Zep song, but they were all the traditional songs that Zep covered, which he did interesting versions of, including gallows pole. What a show that was!

hahahaha - I always thought it was "Hang me, Hang me, oh for a little while" - HA!!! My bad!

Very Kool Boncer,i love rock history

This song (like "When the Levee Breaks" on Led Zep IV) is not an original Led Zeppelin song, but a cover of a much older blues song. For both, contrasting the LZ version with the original is interesting. "When the Levee Breaks" was Memphis Minnie; "Gallows Pole" was Leadbelly, and later Fred Gerlach.

I remember Hearing Gallows Pole live in Minneapolis, God what a memory, The Zeppelin tunes soothe my very soul.
