Yup, the old record player....... When I was living offbase with 3 Navy buds(71-72), we would put a stack of LP's on this old stereo console at night, but One guy always stacked the deck. The last album would just play over and over all night, and it was Madman Across The Water. There are some good tunes on that LP, but I can't listen to it anymore. We wore out quite a few Zep albums in that apartment!
Could the lyric "spirit" be alluding to this...
