Pink Floyd, Allman Bros, Clapton, Elton John, Eagles, Frampton, Boston etc etc easy to find, and not too expensive...
... No Led Zep... Why?
The few Vinyl reissues there were seemed to be in very short supply, and very expensive.. I broke my own rule and bought Mothership, but it was not the same....
When I heard Jimmy Page was going to reissue all the studio albums, a year or so back, I was so thrilled..... It's been a long wait...
I went ahead and bought the Super Deluxe Sets, and while a little pricey, are very solidly put together, and chock full of goodies to look at while reclining in your bean bag in front of the stereo...
The records sound surprisingly good, and remarkably noise free, and definitely warmer than any of the digital copies I listen to so much...I just finished a marathon session of listening to every piece of vinyl in order, and I'm left ready to do it again....
Let's get one thing straight: These are all 5-star worthy albums, and if you do not own these in any form, start here. The 4-star rating I gave above is explained below.
The thoughtful prose above came, surprisingly, from Pitchfork, at the beginning of their review for the new Led Zeppelin reissues (I, II & III). I rag on Pitchfork quite a bit, and damn it most of the time I’m right to do so. This was one of those rare Pitchfork reviews devoid of pretension and overflowing with sensitive insight into why Led Zeppelin and these expanded reissues still matter. Yeah, I know. Wow.
I buy a lot of these Expanded/Anniversary/Deluxe/Remastered/Legacy Editions, and the bottom line is simple: some of them are worth it, and some of them aren’t. I have a little over 250 of these, so I thought I’d start to review a few, and I might as well start with these new Led Zep deals. I won’t get into commentary on the original album itself, trying to stick to the following qualities, instead:
1. Packaging (30%)
2. Bonus Disc(s) (40%)
3. Sound quality (20%)
4. Overall Impression (10%)
The packaging of all three are similar, a slim digi-pack design with faithful representations of the original covers on the front, including III’s die-cut and wheel (if any of you know the official term for that kind of thing, please let me know in the comments section). The back covers are sort of a photographic negative version of the originals, meant to represent the bonus disk content, which for the most part are alternate versions of the original songs. The tri-fold digi-pack is nice, but the disks are in their cardboard pockets a little too tight for my comfort. The booklet could have been better, too. No essays, no commentary, just the bare bones facts about the music and players within, complete with a few nice photos. For its faults, I’ll take off 10 points. 20/30
The bonus discs for #2 and 3 are stellar, as I said mostly alternate takes of the originals, but they are better than average and I certainly wouldn’t rate any of these unworthy. The alternate version of Whole Lotta Love, for instance, sounds even more dangerous and vital than the original. The bonus disc on Led Zeppelin I, a live concert from around the time of release, is s***. I mean, it sounds like s***. Terribly recorded, I couldn’t finish the whole thing. Just awful, not even worth having as a curio. That said, I’d rate II and III perfect scores, and a big fat zero for Zep I’s bonus “material”. 27/40
The sound quality is brilliant. Not much different to the most recent remasters (on, say, the Mothership collection), and certainly not too loud. To my ears this is the best I have ever heard Led Zeppelin. 20/20
My overall impression? I’m impressed, and I have to say it’s about time this bands individual albums got the respect they deserved, even if they could have been a little better. In the end it’s really all about the music, and what’s here, apart from the live disc, is untouchable. 8/10
Overall score: 75/100
Great CD, all remastered sound as of 2014. I don't see any reason to bother with MP3 downloads, especially with Apple including your iTunes account information in the digital download.
I also like that these CDs are packed only with paper/cardboard, as opposed to plastic. The plastic jewel cases always or usually break anyway. It's just not necessary to use plastic to store CDs in. This cover is made well enough that it will store just fine, using less space, and without all that plastic.
