Led Zeppelin: Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)

I got thinking last night that I have never featured a Led Zeppelin “B” side as our Friday Flipside Feature. Today’s selection was the flip of the single “Whole Lotta Love” – Led Zeppelin’s only Top 10 single in the US. It charted at #4.

The “B” side was a track from “Led Zeppelin II” and was originally titled as “Livin’ Lovin’ Wreck (She’s a Woman)” on the initially British releases of the album. It was later rechristened by Atlantic Records as “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just a Woman).” The song was about an annoying groupie.

This cut is often heard yet today on rock radio; however, it is usually paired with “Heartbreaker.” The two songs run together on the album. Both the album and single were released in October 1969.
