Zep never repeated themselves

Hello, All -

I had a thought the other night.

Zeppelin wrote the biggest radio hit of all time, Stairway to Heaven.
Within two years, they knew what they had; I mean that by their '73 tour
they knew that fans were gaga for the song.

Isn't it amazing, in that light, that they never tried to copy themselves?

Sure, songs like TYG, ItL and Kashmir (among others) come from the same
quadrant of the galaxy, but there is no Zeppelin song that's any kind of
attempt to re-do Stairway.

Pretty cool.
