Yardbirds [1968.04.04] Knowing That I'm Losing You

This is a very interesting song by the Yardbirds.

Seems like Page heard this song from somewhere

and then thought."hmmm, Should I snatch this
and re-work it; then slap Led Zeppelin on it.?
Sure why not, we're getting pretty good at taking credit
for stuff we didn't write."

01. Knowing That I'm Losing You
 [later turned up as 'Led Zeppelin's Tangerine' with Keith Relf’s uncredited lyrics intact]

Protean version of what later became 'Tangerine'. Never copyrighted at the time, Jimmy Page later claimed it as all his own work, although Keith Relf is said to have contributed a good deal of the lyrics.
This did not appear on the official album, but showed up on the web in 2007 - hence the title of this version of the album being "Cumular Limit complete". -Original
