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

Product Description

Item is in mint condition great gift for any zeppelin fan.

Amazon.com

Here are the original monsters of rock in all their epic, bombastic glory. The Who may have had more decibels (a dubious distinction), but no band took hard rock higher into the stratosphere than the Zep did with their cosmic mixture of deep blues, gothic melodrama, and the supernatural chops of Page, Plant, Bonham, and Jones. For listeners new to the Zep canon, there's no better primer of the band's range and power than this 4 CD box set, compiled and remixed in 1990 by Page himself. All the obvious song choices are here. But even if you've already heard "Black Dog" once too often on the car radio, this set wisely spotlights several overlooked gems, including their ultimate blues lament "I'm Gonna Crawl." It's a blueprint that later generations of head-bangers tragically failed to follow. --Steve Appleford

Customer Reviews

The music sounded great, no fantastic, like it was recorded yesterday.
Eric J. Weik
This is the second time I've purchased this set, I think my ex got the first one, and I'd give it as a gift too!
L.M. Looney
If you like this set, buy the 2nd box set (containing some lesser-known gems) and your collection is complete.

About six months ago I became a fan for life when I heard 'Achilles Last Stand' off of Presence. I made it my New Year's resolution to get my hands on more of Zeppelin's music. I landed this box set ... in an Amazon.com auction and for almost 2 months didn't buy another CD, because this was all I needed. This is the ultimate starter kit for those who want to get the full scope of the band's work and an understanding of why they remain probably one of the best rock bands in history. It makes me wish I had been born 15 years earlier (I'm 23) so I could have seen them perform; music that stretches boundaries the way Led Zeppelin's did and still does is hard to find. Ballads, opuses, ditties, driving rock -- it's all here, and assembled in such a way that each CD has a different feel that successfully spans the more than 10 years that LZ were making music. This is not solely an essential item for the Led Zeppelin fan, but for the music fan as well.

This set artfully explores the ingenious travels of hard rock's most influential and creative band, Led Zeppelin. Some of these songs are probably familiar from the radio, such as the crunchy "Black Dog" and "Whole Lotta Love" and the mystical epics "Stairway to Heaven" and "Kashmir." To get a full feel of the band's range, one needs to listen to the whole set, which ranges from bludgeoning heavy blues to delicate folk. The only possible drawback to buying this 4-CD set is that it's missing a few good tracks - but for that, there's always Box Set 2!

Format: Audio CD
I bought this box set as soon as it was released. I owned the original Led Zeppelin albums on vinyl, and the difference in sound quality, obviously, is huge. I like Zeppelin, but there are other artists I listen to more frequently. That being said, this is a very good box set overall, and if you are just getting into Led Zeppelin, is an excellent place to start, with one caveat: this is a four CD set that's about one CD too long. All the classics are here, but there is quite a bit of material that is for true die-hard fans only. While it's better to err on the side of too much material, this could have easily been pruned a bit more to make a tighter, more cohesive package. For the Zeppelin purists that disagree, I recommend that they skip the box set altogether and buy all the original albums on CD for even more material.

The individual CD's are somewhat jumbled, and don't follow a strict historical timeline, which doesn't bother me, but does annoy some fans. Of the four CD's, the best of the bunch in my opinion is disc one, which contains such greats as "Heartbreaker," "What Is And What Should Never Be," "Ramble On," and the excellent but comparatively rare "Hey Hey What Can I Do," plus eleven more. This is the disc I normally pull out of the box to play, although all the others are good, too (disc four drags a bit, though.)

In all, this is a reasonably priced, balanced set of the best of Led Zeppelin: it won't be the favorite of everyone, though; hardcore fans will want more, casual listeners will want less, but for most of those in between, this set is of great quality and is a good value.

This is the perfect box set to start one's Zeppelin collection. If you've heard all the stuff on the radio and want that and a little more, buy this set. The sound quality is excellent, and the order of songs seems just as fitting as the original studio albums. There is incredible fluidity on this set (a quality that is far too often not achieved on most box sets), meaning you can listen to the whole thing straight through, getting a listen of the gradual developing sound of Led Zeppelin in the 70's without the awkwardness of a sudden change in sound from song to song. If you like this set, buy the 2nd box set (containing some lesser-known gems) and your collection is complete. Enjoy!

Me 2. With roots from old blues,soul, 60,70,& 80's classic rock,70's P-funk a, 70's 80's,90's punk,80's& 90's alternative, and international music from all over the world, I've always kept a fairly large & rotating collection of LP's & later CDs. It gets pretty expensive to own entire catalogs of all your fav artists. I own 300 plus CD's right now and I just began replacing LP's with CD's about 8 years ago. I started to buy each Zep CD individually, then I found this box set, which I gave to myself for Xmas, one of my best presents ever. Now if you're a hard core Zep fan then you will probably need to buy every remastered release that they have put out, along with the Page and Plant CD's (I especially enjoyed the No Quarter CD), But I think that for those Zep Fans with a wide variety of musical tastes, a limited budget, or new fans this could definitly make you smile. After all, This box set has most of the best stuff Zep ever did, remastered and crystal clear. I'm sure that I can think of several other pesonal fav's that I might have included,(Lemon Song, How Many More Times, even Boogie with Stu), but you're getting 54 really cool tunes here, just pick up what you're missing later. Its all good. By the way, I'm 39 & have 3 punk and hip hop loving teenagers who raid my CD's regularly. in their words, Led Zep Rocks.
Peace.
