Big enough for Led Zeppelin's towering sound, this 10-CD box set collects all nine of the legendary band's original studio albums released from 1969 to 1982. Included are: Led Zeppelin I (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), IV (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973), Physical Graffitti (1975) (2CD), Presence (1976), In Through the Out Door (1979), and Coda (1982). A true stairway to heaven for Zep fans, this massive box originally released in 1993 features each classic title with its original album artwork.
As Basil Bunting wrote about Ezra Pound's Cantos, "There are the Alps... you will have to go a long way round/if you want to avoid them." Led Zeppelin's work is the central fact of 1970s rock & roll; in its loving homage to and shameless piracy from the blues, its glorious and wretched excess, its transformation of hippie and folk-rock graces into a foundation-shaking kaboom, and its offhanded myth-making, the band turned everything caught in its wake into a reaction to it--or against it. The three non-album tracks the box includes are grace notes rather than lost jewels, but the point of the set is to be a Rosetta stone of album rock, the stairway to a gaudy paradise that they constructed. --Douglas Wolk

OK, this is super expensive and worth every penny. Well, that is, if they actually send you all the discs. Read morePublished 1 month ago by GeoffyGeoff
It's the greatest music ever recorded, this isn't up for debate. Why isn't this complete set Synced in our libraries?Published 1 month ago by W. Schaeffer Tolliver
It's Zeppelin. Of course it met expectations. 10 cds (9 albums because Physical Graffiti is a double disc) plus lyrics books and some photos in a cd-sized book.Published 2 months ago by Mike T.
Really well made thought out box set. You get every studio Zeppelin album in one decent size box with a booklet with an essay and classic Zep band. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jmetal86

|Question about the remastering||
no way, the new remasters on mothership are awful and totally compressed. mark my words, when the ipod generation finally grows up and realizes that mp3s and overcompression suck, everyone will be looking for the original remasters.

|Which is better (in terms of dynamic range)? Complete Studio Recordings...||
I now have both and believe they are the same. I don't have any equipment to analyze that but I have no reason to believe these albums were remastered again. I did own a couple of the Barry Diament mastered CD's years ago which are reputedly better but I don't have them to compare now. I am... Read More

|12/16 boxed set release||
It's all too common for Amazon to have old reviews of old releases posted as new reviews of new releases.
Until this practice is stopped, one can never trust that the reviews posted for a newly remastered release is not from an older, similar release.

|What;s with the $40 price increase?||
probably due to the current Zeppelin fever about the Dec 10th show. but beware, these are the 1990 remasters which are now inferior to those on the new Mothership cds. if u audition both back to back, u can easily hear the difference. i hope they issue an upgraded box soon in 2008.
