Imagine if Jimmy Page never joined Led Zeppelin. Then imagine if, instead, he struck off into the English countryside with a few friends to make a folk record that sounded like a combination of early Donovan and The Incredible String Band with sitar thrown in for good measure. It’d be pretty rad. It’d probably sound a lot like Maureeny Wishfull because, well, that’s exactly what Maureeny Wishfull is.
Released on the Moonshine label with pre-Zeppelin Jimmy on guitar / sitar, this is a very rare privately-pressed album that also features John Williams and Big Jim Sullivan. Rumored to have been just 300 or so copies pressed, this legendary piece is one of the great Page/Zeppelin-linked collectors items. Say what you will about Zeppelin, but this record is damn good.
