For EQ just dime the treble, back the bass right off and put the mids about half way, depending on the amp. Try using a wah half cocked, I'm pretty sure that's not what is in the song but it might give you a sound you can work with. Middle position of your guitar and just get the balance of the pickups right.

He cranked his guitar as loud as possible straight into the mixing desk, creating natural distortion (for that song only). No idea how you'd recreate that...

Doesn't that amp have a preset that is supposed to give the sound for Black Dog? Not saying presets are always the best, but that should at least give you a decent starting point. Either that, throw it on the preset for uk rock and turn the volume up. If you can get the distortion sounding right and approximate the tone, the rest is just gonna come down to your guitar and playing style. Page didn't normally have the most intentionally subtle tones when it came to his electric playing in early zep.

Also, pretty sure this doesn't belong in the pit.

Just like that.

"We put my Les Paul through a direct box, and from there into a mic channel. We used the mic amp of the mixing board to get distortion. Then we ran it through two Urei 1176 Universal compressors in series. Then each line was triple-tracked. Curiously, I was listening to that track when we were reviewing the tapes and the guitars almost sound like an analog synthesizer"
