Editorial Reviews

John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant came together in 1968 as Led Zeppelin. Over the next decade, the band would become one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, selling more than 300 million albums worldwide. Their songs are some of the most celebrated in rock n roll history that, to this day, resonate with fans young and old around the globe. Still, no matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you ve never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.

With the 2014 release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, & Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin, " says Page. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time."

Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as "Immigrant Song" and "Since I ve Been Loving You, " the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum.

The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: "Jennings Farm Blues" (an instrumental forerunner of "Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp"), "Bathroom Sound" (an instrumental version of "Out On The Tiles"), and their take on the blues classics "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind. "

Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham took the stage at London s O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album.

I love this album. The bonus disk is good but the bonus material on the 1st one is the best. You can kind of skip it, honestly. There was a long wait for this version. For some reason they didn't press enough of this bonus version and you couldn't get it anywhere. It took like two months to get this. I suggest with further reissues, put your order in early to be sure to get it. In any case, the remastering is beautifully done and the detail in the tracks is great. You can't go wrong with this. In fact, I find myself listening to this album the most of the three reissues. Just a great album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still There Shining June 19, 2014
Format:Vinyl
This is a review of all three of the 2014 album reissues .

How many of us had a similar introduction to Led Zeppelin? In the second year of comprehensive school, somebody brought in a tape with 4 live songs – Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love, Rock n Roll and Stairway to Heaven. Looking back, I think the songs must have been taped using a ghetto blaster from a VHS copy of the Song Remains the Same movie. I had never seen a picture of the band, never seen an album cover (not that those gnomic objects gave much away in any case), and certainly had never heard any of them speak. They were a transfixing riddle for those about to outgrow jigsaws and board games. There were rumours that the guitarist was in league with the devil. Somebody much braver than me brought in a copy of Alistair Crowley’s Magick that he’d acquired on special offer from a book club advertised on the back of the Mail on Sunday, and he tried to evoke a spell to resurrect John Bonham in an RE lesson. Bonham had died choking on his own vomit after consuming 40 vodka shots, which seemed quite an exotic way to go for boys who had only just found the pleasures of secret home brew. Another boy had a necklace with the Zoso symbol that he wore surreptitiously as a bracelet under his school jumper, after the Science teacher saw it dangling in front of a Bunsen Burner. And those songs – which could be simultaneously, horny and wistful, suggested to 13 year old boys that they had found the meaning of life. For the first 10 or so listens we never got to the second minute of Whole Lotta Love, that primeval riff making us involuntarily reach for the pause button to hear it again and again.

It's remarkable that Jimmy Page is able to re-master Led material and achieve a sound quality that current artists with the best technology don't. (This is the LP, which is audiophile quality vinyl.) Every instrument is clear and balanced in the sound field, especially the drums. Robert Plant's voice cuts through...well, everything, shrieking, moaning, whispering, a master's lesson about feeling what one is singing.

And the songs seem still current. Led III puzzled fans when it was released, which is understandable after the fiery first two albums. But listening now, it's clear Jimmy was doing something that was going to change rock music, bringing in folk (That's the Way) and Celtic elements (Gallows Pole) along with more familiar blues (Since I've Been Loving You, still one of the coolest blues songs ever) and sharp-edged rock (Immigrant Song). It all sounds fresh 45 years later.

The added disk of 'new' material is a nice addition. Hearing early versions helps to understand how the band continued to develop material for final release. The instrumental versions awaiting Robert Plant's vocals sound almost like a jazz trio. Once again I could appreciate how all four were remarkable musicians, mixing together effortlessly.

And, OK I'll admit it: the entire package is worth it for the Plant-Page duet of 'Key to The Highway,' which was not on the original album. Just two artists in the studio doing an old Bill Broonzy number because they felt like it. Awesome. I had no idea Robert Plant could play such fiery blues harmonica. I wish he had done it more.

Well done. Lesson for current artists: hold onto all the tapes (or files) from your recording sessions. Someday you might need them.

5.0 out of 5 stars You knew it would be good, and it is! June 27, 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Seriously! Could you give less than 5 stars just because it's Zeppelin! I got the auto rip of this over a month ago. Amazon was out of stock, but I FINALLY got my vinyl copy today (I've had I and II on vinyl for a few weeks now). iII is the best all around. The music sounds great. But the packaging puts I and II to shame. I had heard the cover was cheaply made, but I don't see that. I'm really glad I purchased the deluxe vinyl edition. The bonus disk is great! I love the alternate takes, esp sibly and gallows pole. Jennings farm blues and key to the highway were unfamiliar to me (I know kith from Clapton, but I like the raw version here better), but are definitely not throw away songs added as filler. This is a great release. I can't wait for the rest of the remasters... I will be buying them all!

The quality of these Vinyl records is superb! its plays with no background noise and has the "companion disc" which is a must have! Fantastic sound quality and well presented with attention to all the background.

The cover for this album was creased and the spine split, the back cover had creases just not good enough at the QC stage, shame also the inner sleeves are very cheaply made and not up to the job.
I have original 40 year old "plastic bags can be dangerous" sleeves in my Zeppelin collection that put these to shame, again this needs sorting out as it spoils what is a great release which I pre ordered in March.
I also bought the 1 and 2 Remastered and they are faultless, only the poor inner sleeves let these down.
come on Plant and Page someone approved these!

I feel the same way. I only want the vinyl, but I want the remastered version to be in a sleeve replicating the original pressings.
