Product Description

Assembled after drummer John Bonham's death, this 1982 release featured some real nuggets for Led Zep fans drawn from throughout their career, including We're Gonna Groove; Ozone Baby; Poor Tom; I Can't Quit You Baby; Wearing and Tearing , and more.

Amazon.com

Coda, released in 1982 after the breakup of the band, was the result of a trawl through the studio archives in search of leftover material. In fact, they had already used up almost all of the good stuff; this was Led Zeppelin's only disappointing album. Nevertheless, even relatively poor material by Led Zeppelin is decent and some tracks here are classic, notably "Poor Tom," "Ozone Baby," and "Wearing and Tearing." The latter, one of three outtakes from the In Through the Out Door sessions, features a particularly high-octane blend of stripped-down, grungy rock & roll and is considered their response to the then-burgeoning punk movement. With so little studio material available, live versions of "I Can't Quit You Babe" and "We're Gonna Groove" from 1970 flesh out the set; the former features some blistering playing. --James Swift

In November 1982, "Coda" was released to an unsuspecting public, two years after the death of John Bonham. While there are no standout pieces, this collection of songs does succeed in chronicling Zeppelin's 12 year flight.
"We're Gonna Groove" opens the album and is taken from the recording sessions that yielded "Led Zeppelin II". This track was a one time show opener and it's easy to see why. Jimmy Page adds sub-octdivider effects on guitar while a young Robert Anthony Plant screams his head off. "Poor Tom" is an interesting piece left over from the "Led Zeppelin III" era. Bonham supplies a fine rhythm track under Page's stellar 12-string acoustic work and Plant's harp. "I Can't Quit You Baby" is taken from a soundcheck from the Royal Albert Hall in 1970. This take is far more explosive than the version found on "Led Zeppelin" (and better, too). "Walter's Walk" is from the 1972 "Houses Of The Holy" sessions and is easily one of the better songs on the album. Bonham's drum sound is massive, and Page stays in the pocket...until the final refrain when he goes postal. Plant's vocals *must* have been overdubed during the compiling of this collection because the quality of his voice is more consistant with the 1978 "In Through The Out Door" sessions, range-wise, whereas if you listen to a song from "Houses" ("Over The Hills And Far Away"), his voice is more powerful.
"Ozone Baby", "Darlene", and "Wearing and Tearing" are all outtakes from the "Out Door" sessions. "Ozone Baby" is a nice, uptempo rocker which obviously would not have belonged on "Out Door".

This deluxe edition of “Coda,” released July 31, 2015, completes Jimmy Page's collection of re-masters that began last June, 2014. Given royal treatment by Page, this is the only album that comes with two companion discs, and it's quite an eclectic group of songs, both on the album itself and the bonus discs. Of course, as Zeppelin fans know, “Coda” was already a collection, consisting of tracks pieced together in 1982 from their vault of unreleased material. It has a patched together feel because that's exactly what it was, an album patched together to capitalize on their unused songs and to fulfill a contractual obligation to Atlantic Records. That being said, they are all quality songs, worthy of being on past albums, but much like half of the songs on Physical Graffiti, they just didn't really fit in with the albums for which they were recorded. Most of them are rather on the upbeat/heavy side and span the entire time the group was together, with three of the eight from “In Through the Out Door” sessions. Whether you think of it as their final album or the last collection of “new” Zeppelin songs, it is a welcome addition to any fan's collection.

This deluxe edition might turn out to be the real treasure chest of them all, though, with the material on the two bonus discs. As with any newer version like this, previously unreleased songs are golden, and this contains several. “Sugar Mama” is a track from the recording session for their debut album. It's a fun, swinging rock 'n' roll song that, in my mind, would have fit right in on either of their first two albums. The instrumental “St. Tristan's Sword” was recorded for III. This one is 5½ minutes of hard rock jamming that sounds like it belongs on Zeppelin I or II. Just a fantastic inclusion.

First off, it's interesting to notice the years that each of these eight songs were released -- spanning from 1969 to 1978. Like all past Led Zeppelin albums, "Coda" contains its share of varied styles and highly memorable jam sessions by each talented musician. It opens with the fun and highly energetic "We're Gonna Groove," done originally by Ben E. King and James Bethea. "Coda" boasts plenty of energy, and the songs are nowhere near as lame as many have claimed they are over the years. The Page/Plant team did a wonderful job on "Poor Tom," a folksy, high-energy ditty with great background drumming, some notable harmonica, a cool bass line and a nice bridge where Plant gently sings and the guitars gently chime.

Though Led Zeppelin influenced every hard rock band under the sun, they themselves also blatantly played their own influences on record, and one such song is the popular Willie Dixon blues track, "I Can't Quit You Baby," a song also heard on Zeppelin's debut album, Led Zeppelin 1, where it expertly melds blues and rock together. Though it was written in 1972, "Walter's Walk" sounds vaguely like an 1980s-era Plant song, with its sharp sound and raring-to-go vocals. Likewise, "Ozone Baby" is a fairly rocking, almost danceable track that displays a band still very much in top form when they recorded it in 1978. In fact, it's unfortunate that some of these late 70s "Coda" songs didn't find their way on Zeppelin's last studio album, In Through the Out Door.

Clicking on all cyclinders throughout "Coda" was the legendary drummer John Bonham.
