Jimmy Page was the most versatile guitar player of all on vinyl in the rock catagory. He may not have been the best in any one catagory, but he had amazing hooks, and studio savy. He covered about the whole spectrum of sound, and style. I mean when you consider a song like The Battle Of Evermore on the same album as "When The Levee Breaks". Or The Immigrant Song, contasting with Tangerine, on the 3rd album. or The Rainsong, with The Crunge, and Dancin' Days on Houses of the Holy, and it goes on, and on. The guy was genius. Zeppelins biggest knock was not being able to produce their studio sound live, but when the band was in a groove, and improvising on stage, they were about untouchable for a 4 piece band.
