If you had wanted to put together a super group in 1971 all you would of had to do was put together Led Zeppelin, and there you are you had it. Out of the ashes of the `Yardbirds' founding member Jimmy Page created Led Zeppelin (well, he had to, all the others had left). The new band did one tour of Scandinavia as 'The New Yardbirds'.
Jimmy Page originally joined the `Yardbirds' as bassist, but switched to lead guitar to give the band a duel pronged guitar attack with a certain Jeff Beck on the other axe. Jimmy Page had long been a top session player, playing most famously on the Kinks' `You Really Got Me' famous guitar riff that almost invented heavy metal music.Read more ›
That's not to say that the album is all brawn and no melody. On the contrary, "The Battle of Evermore" and "Going to California" are beautiful folk ballads which perfect the folk sound that Led Zeppelin had been experimenting with ever since their first album came out.
At any rate, if you don't own this album, then you ought to go out and buy it. Just to have one of the greatest CD's ever in your collection.
I give every single song on this album a 10/10 with the exception of Four Sticks, which I would give a 9.5. Albums can't really rate much higher.
These are the gods of rock and this is their masterpiece. No person who claims to listen to rock should be without it. Don't pay any attention to the 1-star reviews, or the 2- and 3- star reviews, for that matter. They are ridiculous and written solely out of rebellion. Let them listen to their Fallout Boys and Nirvanas and Panic at the Discos.Read more ›
With so many high quality Zeppelin bootlegs out there, I would have preferred more live material from this period. And if they want to include "alternate" versions of songs, they should truly be alternate versions. Look at the alternate versions of Beatles songs on the "Anthology" discs. Those are what I would really consider "alternate." Different lyrics, different solos, etc. This just reeks of another cash grab from Page.

This review pertains to the actual vinyl record, not the recording. The album of course is an 11 outta 10, but the first copy I ordered skips on a couple of songs on side 2. Read morePublished 16 hours ago by Walter G.

|SHM-CDs sound excellent!!!||
Trust me: These CDs sound better than the originals. I would prefer to have all of these recordings on SACD or DVD-A multi-channel, but since this isn't going to happen, SHM CDs are definitely the next best thing. Don't even talk to me about domestic gold CDs as a comparison. SHM CDs I have... Read More

Led Zeppelin has three albums prior to this one therefore making it the 4th album vice the debut album. It is a bitching album though!
