Led Zeppelin 1 - Unboxing

Biography

Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues -- it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) -- into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press detested the band. Consequently, the only ... Read more in Amazon's Led Zeppelin Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Coda, released in 1982 after the breakup of the band, was the result of a trawl through the studio archives in search of leftover material. In fact, they had already used up almost all of the good stuff; this was Led Zeppelin's only disappointing album. Nevertheless, even relatively poor material by Led Zeppelin is decent and some tracks here are classic, notably "Poor Tom," "Ozone Baby," and "Wearing and Tearing." The latter, one of three outtakes from the In Through the Out Door sessions, features a particularly high-octane blend of stripped-down, grungy rock & roll and is considered their response to the then-burgeoning punk movement. With so little studio material available, live versions of "I Can't Quit You Babe" and "We're Gonna Groove" from 1970 flesh out the set; the former features some blistering playing. --James Swift

3.0 out of 5 stars Leftovers April 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
In November 1982, "Coda" was released to an unsuspecting public, two years after the death of John Bonham. While there are no standout pieces, this collection of songs does succeed in chronicling Zeppelin's 12 year flight.
"We're Gonna Groove" opens the album and is taken from the recording sessions that yielded "Led Zeppelin II". This track was a one time show opener and it's easy to see why. Jimmy Page adds sub-octdivider effects on guitar while a young Robert Anthony Plant screams his head off. "Poor Tom" is an interesting piece left over from the "Led Zeppelin III" era. Bonham supplies a fine rhythm track under Page's stellar 12-string acoustic work and Plant's harp. "I Can't Quit You Baby" is taken from a soundcheck from the Royal Albert Hall in 1970. This take is far more explosive than the version found on "Led Zeppelin" (and better, too). "Walter's Walk" is from the 1972 "Houses Of The Holy" sessions and is easily one of the better songs on the album. Bonham's drum sound is massive, and Page stays in the pocket...until the final refrain when he goes postal. Plant's vocals *must* have been overdubed during the compiling of this collection because the quality of his voice is more consistant with the 1978 "In Through The Out Door" sessions, range-wise, whereas if you listen to a song from "Houses" ("Over The Hills And Far Away"), his voice is more powerful.
"Ozone Baby", "Darlene", and "Wearing and Tearing" are all outtakes from the "Out Door" sessions. "Ozone Baby" is a nice, uptempo rocker which obviously would not have belonged on "Out Door".

4.0 out of 5 stars True Zeppelin fans will want this July 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
First off, it's interesting to notice the years that each of these eight songs were released -- spanning from 1969 to 1978. Like all past Led Zeppelin albums, "Coda" contains its share of varied styles and highly memorable jam sessions by each talented musician. It opens with the fun and highly energetic "We're Gonna Groove," done originally by Ben E. King and James Bethea. "Coda" boasts plenty of energy, and the songs are nowhere near as lame as many have claimed they are over the years. The Page/Plant team did a wonderful job on "Poor Tom," a folksy, high-energy ditty with great background drumming, some notable harmonica, a cool bass line and a nice bridge where Plant gently sings and the guitars gently chime.

Though Led Zeppelin influenced every hard rock band under the sun, they themselves also blatantly played their own influences on record, and one such song is the popular Willie Dixon blues track, "I Can't Quit You Baby," a song also heard on Zeppelin's debut album, Led Zeppelin 1, where it expertly melds blues and rock together. Though it was written in 1972, "Walter's Walk" sounds vaguely like an 1980s-era Plant song, with its sharp sound and raring-to-go vocals. Likewise, "Ozone Baby" is a fairly rocking, almost danceable track that displays a band still very much in top form when they recorded it in 1978. In fact, it's unfortunate that some of these late 70s "Coda" songs didn't find their way on Zeppelin's last studio album, In Through the Out Door.

Clicking on all cyclinders throughout "Coda" was the legendary drummer John Bonham.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this last, but still buy it. May 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album was released after LZ's breakup. It consists of the studio album outtakes that weren't used to fill the gaps on Physical Graffiti. Basically, its the eight worst tracks by the best rock band in the world. However, LZ (apparently) never wasted studio tape: all these tracks are worthwhile. I Can't Quit You is a 1970 rehearsal of a blues cover found on the first album. Ozone Baby, Darlene, and Wearing and Tearing were three punk-influenced tracks recorded with In Through The Out Door. Bonzo's Montreax is a drum solo in the spirit of Moby Dick. The others are tracks from 1970-2. Although the tracks are weaker than other Zep material, these songs are worth a listen from time to time. After the other 9 CD's, buy this.

3.0 out of 5 stars the led zeppelin clearance sale...everything must go. February 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
and indeed everything did go...sort of. though later it would be realized that at least one more track hadn't been used ("baby come on home", included on the second zep box set in 93), this album does an admirable job of sating fans thirst for zeppelin one last time. i personally think they could have made the album better by including "hey hey what can i do" and "travelling riverside blues" on it, but that's not for me to decide. at least those tracks were made available later. anyway, on to the matter at hand. this album lacks the cohesiveness of a zep album proper, but given that the songs were collected from a 12 year span, this is to be expected. "ozone baby" is the standout here, to me anyway. jonesy's bass really anchors this song. plant's vocals are a thing of beauty here, and page's guitar rocks out fifties style only better. "wearing and tearing" must've been their attempt to sound punk. it doesn't sound punk, but that's okay with me. "we're gonna groove" cooks, "poor tom" would've been better on "III" than "hats off to (roy) harper", and "walter's walk" is pretty decent. i never cared for "darlene" too much, or for "i can't quit you baby." and the drum solo "bonzo's montreux" is good for at least a couple of listens, but the lack of accompaniment makes it get old after that. a good lp to round out the collection but you don't want to start here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you serious
Released in the 80's for a reason. The last song on the album is probably the most inspired. Led Zeppelin IV, released in '71, towers above the rest.

Your Favorite Led Zeppelin Album
I'd have to say...Led Zeppelin 4. And not just for Stairway. I love Battle of Evermore, Going to California, Black Dog, Rock and Roll, Misty Mountain Top, Four Sticks, and When the Levee Breaks (all of the songs). Close 2nd place would have to be Led Zeppelin or Physical Graffiti.
