The Top Ten

1 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

Page and Plant travelled to Bombay, India, and worked with Indian musicians / session players. These Indian session musicians played the string and horn sections for Kashmir.
John Paul Jones, who also used a Mellotron, commented:
"the secret of successful keyboard string parts is to play only the parts that a real string section would play. That is, one line for the First Violins, one line for Second Violins, one for Violas, one for Cellos, one for Basses." - Metal_Treasure
