Item is in mint condition great gift for any zeppelin fan.
Here are the original monsters of rock in all their epic, bombastic glory. The Who may have had more decibels (a dubious distinction), but no band took hard rock higher into the stratosphere than the Zep did with their cosmic mixture of deep blues, gothic melodrama, and the supernatural chops of Page, Plant, Bonham, and Jones. For listeners new to the Zep canon, there's no better primer of the band's range and power than this 4 CD box set, compiled and remixed in 1990 by Page himself. All the obvious song choices are here. But even if you've already heard "Black Dog" once too often on the car radio, this set wisely spotlights several overlooked gems, including their ultimate blues lament "I'm Gonna Crawl." It's a blueprint that later generations of head-bangers tragically failed to follow. --Steve Appleford

This set is also nice because it has three well-done research essays on the band from there time in the 1970's. It has stories and commentaries as well as a bunch of wonderful pictures, and all compiled in a set the size of a Vinyl case, only thicker, of course, and well padded. The music is placed on the CD's in order of when they came out, so finding a song from a later time is easy. Overall a great product if you are starting to get into the Led, or just want to have the good music without ALL of their good music and the equally heavy price. I highly Reccomend it.
The musical selections are superb, of course. If you don't have more than a couple of individual albums, this is a great way to get the essentials. The relative dearth of unreleased material (all of 3 songs) may discourage those with more complete collections, although the 'new' songs that are included are excellent. 'Hey, Hey, What Can I Do' is almost worth the price of admission itself.
This box is overpriced compared to some, but the material and the sound quality go a long way to justifying the cost. Overall, an excellent set.
