From Radio Perth, West Australia, Australia, 16 February 1972
Do you reckon that releasing Whole Lotta Love from Led Zeppelin II as a single became a problem for you, because it was a super hit all over the world, and were people like expecting another Whole Lotta Love when the band went in to record again?
Not really, 'cause it wasn't as though, uh, I mean there were some groups that put a single out and it kills them. A good example of that is Procul Harem [alas], who have made some fantastic records, like Sailor, I don't know if you've ever heard that one.
I put that on at home just a little while ago after not hearing it for a long time and I just sat there riveted to the seat and just wondered why they weren't acclaimed as one of the best bands going, you know, 'cuz it just amazed me.
But, I don't know what happened with them with their single, it was just the, everyone thought it was the hype, but you see, we, we, we, we didn't put that out for a long long while, and you know, the pressure, pressure, pressure 'No, we don't want it out, no we don't want it out', and in the end we still put it out. That's all there was to it, and I think people knew that.
Sam Cameron adds: This is presumably a reference to A Salty Dog unless J Page is getting Procol Harum mixed up with Steve Miller
