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

OK, so you thought you already owned Zep and had the best, if they ever do remaster and remix the whole shootin' match like Jimmy Page did for the Mothership set. Since there are as many reviews that pan the Mothership set as there are the love it, it seems to me that it is not the universal Zep panacea one would have thought. To me, it is "in your face", mixed/mastered at way too high a gain level that clips off dynamic expansion critical to rock and roll, and hides the small nuances of the recordings. You may love that. Fair enough. Then enjoy.

Having owned the 1993 complete studio recordings box set and the remix from that, I felt I had probably owned the best sounding versions on CD. That is, until I purchased a few of the 2005 Japanese mini LP releases from the Japan remasters in 2003. The 2003 masters were taken from the 1993 mixes, so they are not new mixes. However, the 2003 masters, as pressed in 2005, sounded more full, sweeter, cleaner and, well, more involving. Same mix from 1993, just a better mastered pressing, plus the venerable Japan perfection in their pressing plants. Lower jitter, finely milled edges to the discs, etc. Nice. Plus, having the mini LP style jackets - based off the USA original releases, was very fine, indeed.

Along comes an all new, completely redone box for 2008. Using the same 1993 mixes with the 2003 Japan masters, the discs have been pressed in the SHM CD format which is NOT available in the USA on USA pressed discs. These are only available from Japan pressings and boy are they some of the best sounding CD's I own in my vast collection. Very nice, indeed.

The SHM pressings allow for a much cleaner, and very dynamic performance to come through. Plant's vocals are nice and focused, more up front and "there".

Most sellers on Amazon and eBay are selling counterfeits. Some of them don't even know it. Unless the box is opened, you really can't tell. The label on the outside of the box is not as dark in in color on real thing. The fakes have heavy ink. But unless you have one to compare it to what can you do?
When you open the box immediately look at Led Zeppelin III. If the wheel is not there it's fake. There should also be a black border around III.
You can get the fakes direct from China for $20. They will not sound the same. And you must pay with a wire transfer. Let the seller know. Most of them will appreciate you letting them know and refund you quickly.

This is an encore issue of the long out of print 2008 "40th Anniversary - Definitive Collection Cardboard sleeve SHM-CD (Mini LP)" Box Set from Led Zeppelin featuring Ten (10) original Albums in the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (12 SHM-CD's) (fully compatible with standard CD players), advanced cardboard sleeve replicas of the original UK E-style album jackets, plus Six BONUS Cardboard Sleeves including Five Alternate Jackets for "In Through The Out Door" and One Alternate Jacket for "Led Zeppelin I" utilizing the original ink. Comes with lyrics and a description. Get this 2013 limited edition while you can. In my opinion much better than the the 2014 Jimmy Page remasters which by no coincidence sound like a guitarist remastered them Hmm........

This is the collection to get. The remastering sounds better than the recent Jimmy Page remasters to my ears. The packaging is also first-rate as I've come to expect from Japanese remasters. Beautiful album replicas with 0 distortion and compression. Just superb sound. The only downside is that it is a little pricey but they did go out of their way to provide a thorough experience. This box set includes all of the album cover versions of IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR as well as LED ZEPPELIN I. The album jackets include all of the quirks that the original albums had, such as the inserts on PHYSICAL GRAFFITI and the art wheel in LED ZEPPELIN III. The other drawback is that it takes a while to receive the package since it usually will ship from Japan. I was very satisfied with this product and don't think that I'll ever buy the LZ collections in any future incarnations since the sound and packaging is of such quality that I think it will be hard to top. In any case, this is as good as it needs to look or sound.

THE PRODUCT IS OK TO ME BECAUSE ALL THE CDS WITH THE ALTERNATE CD SLEEVES ARE INCLUDED BUT THEY ARE NOT IN THE ORIGINAL ART WORK PRESENTATION. FOR EXAMPLE THE LED ZEPPLIN III CD DOES NOT HAVE THE ART WHEEL.

CD JAPAN has more SHM-CD box sets in stock!!!
This may seem like a pretty silly question, but do you have any idea if there is a way to order booklets that are in English? I'm assuming that the Rhino set has the English booklets, but I'd really like to have some for the SHM-CD set.
