Led Zeppelin didn't release their debut LP until Jan of 1969, yet, 52 years ago today, on Sept. 3, 1966, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones had the #1 record in the US. Kinda…..
On Sept. 3, 1966, Donovan's song "Sunshine Superman" became the #1 song in the US. It knocked " The Lovin' Spoonfuln's "Sumer In The City" out of the spot it had held for the previous 3 weeks. It would be the only time that Donovan would have a #1 song in the US. The song wasn't released in the UK until Dec of 66.
Page and Jones…. They were session musicians on the record.
That's why were here, to let you know these things…
