There is so many songs and albums Jimmy Page played on..even Page really can't tell ya the real number.I'm amazed at how many people don't know Page played guitar on Joe Cocker's hit "with a little help from my friends"



to be honest Led zepplein made Jimmy famous or should i say he made led zepp famous witgh out led zepp the realy is no jimmy page



You left out Roy Harper's "Whatever Happened to Jugula" album. Page was always a big fan of Roy Harper. Harper was a real musician's musician. He is probably best known for singing "Have a Cigar" on Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here album, as the Pink Floyd were big fans of his also.
Also left out: Coverdale & Page, Death Wish II, and the Lucifer Rising soundtrack.

The musicians who played on Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man" were not Led Zeppelin. However, John Paul Jones played bass on the song and did the arrangement. The musicians were: Donovan on Acoustic Guitar, Tambura and vocals, Alan Parker on Electric Guitar, John Paul Jones on Bass,
Clem Cattini on Drums.

It is worth noting that on Donovan's song "Barabajagal," the backing band is the Jeff Beck Group which then consisted of Jeff Beck on guitar, Ronnie Wood on bass, and Tony Newman on drums.



I've read that they also were the backup band for Donovan on "Hurdy Gurdy Man" . . .
