Not this version! The separation is amazing and Robert Plant's voice seems to float above the music like lightining. And of course Page's virtuoso guitar work shines throughout. My favorite is Your Time Is Gonna Come, hardly one of their big hits. Because the song features keyboards, acoustic and slide guitar you can really appreciate the remaster best on this song.
I've seen a lot of negative comments about the concert disc. It is what it is soundwise. But it is worth it just to hear the tremendous energy they generated on stage and I love how raw it sounds.
So if you are on the fence as to whether to buy the remaster, go for it!
I'm old, but apparently not old enough to remember the original (let alone ever actually hear) the original vinyl release, only inferior subsequent "remasters" that were more an accommodation of their new respective media..
I believe I first heard this on cassette, and then CD...and then another CD..
All of them had some weird thing going on with the left channels that I could never ever get my brain around. I thought I had hearing loss. In fact, I've listened to many, many recordings on CD from a generation or more removed from the original release and I've very many times had a feeling of experiencing a mix that just didn't sit right, with no understanding of why.
I especially have heard this on English recordings from the 60's.
While I think a reasoned discussion of channel imbalances of late 60's British rock (Trident Ranges?) is far beyond the scope of an Amazon review, I feel obliged to mention this because when within the first few seconds of hearing this new master from Page, I felt immediately vindicated as I now felt that the mix sounded more natural.
(Many of the channel assignments are reversed from the last digital master)
This new master sticks up like a giant..Zeppelin??
The difference between this and my older CD copy are beyond night and day.
While my 1994(?) master has a certain inverted ragged and rugged charm, it is really squashed and phase-y.
This sounds like it's mastered at a lower overall level, (perception bias I'm sure..see the channel imbalance comments)
but has more air and life in it. Everything sounds better.
Even the unintentional cut at ~3:58 in "You Shook Me" sounds much better here.
I am amazed at the details I now hear in the opening of "Ramble On"
Is he playing the "drum" part on his jeans?
It sounds like jeans. Who's playing that part anyway? Bonzo? Page? Plant? Jones?
As we all get older, the source material, and all the people involved in the making of it, get further off in the past and the only thing we are eventually left with is the source recording. While it seems preposterous now, there will very likely be a day in the not so distant future when even music critics will struggle with who Led Zeppelin was, etc.
Jimmy Page has made a smart bet on his time to remaster these amazingly awesome recordings up to the highest bit rate and resolution available to us.
Perhaps now instead of people digging through crates trying to find the best copy of an early Led Zeppelin record, people can instead just enjoy the music as close to how it sounded when it came out.
I sure as hell am.
The sheer range of tone colors and musical styles on this album is breathtaking. It has bone-crushing distortion on the electric guitar (Communication Breakdown), plaintive acoustic sections (Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You), psychedelic/progressive/experimental sections, interesting tunings on the acoustic guitar and varied instrumentation (tablas) on Black Mountain Side, and above all else, highly electrified blues. Although I love the whole album, I am particularly fond of Dazed and Confused and How Many More Times.
This remastered version of the album is awesome. Nice LP format, photos of the group in a small booklet and excellent sound quality.
All in all, this is my favorite Led Zeppelin album. I appreciate the warmness of the sound and the directness of the compositions.
