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."
The Led Zeppelin legend began in January of 1969 with the group s eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of "Good Times Bad Times, " on through to "Babe I m Gonna Leave You, " "Communication Breakdown, " and "Dazed And Confused, " the album introduced the band s unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape. Led Zeppelin has been certified diamond by the RIAA for sales over 10 million and was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2004.
The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including an epic 15-minute version of "Dazed And Confused, " as well as "Heartbreaker" and "Moby Dick, " which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.
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 listen via McIntosh receiver, McIntosh SACD player, B&W bookshelf speakers and Kplisch subwoofer. In the only mode it is available, stereo. It turns up loud nicely, great stereo balance and most notably to me is the low end, bass and drums, seem to really come through.
I have listened to in my car, with just the standard Ford CD stereo system and is great.
I have never been a big fan of Led Zep live versions and this continues with the live Paris second CD. Too much Jimmy Page playing random stuff. It's nice to have the second CD, live Paris, but I probably won't listen to it too much.
The packaging and booklet are cool and well done.
Much of this music evolved from Jimmy Page's Yardbirds period. This album is the most blues oriented of the Led Zeppelin albums.
The cover art is very spartan. Led Zeppelin was signed to Atlantic Records by Ahmet Ertegun in 1968 after hearing their demo recording. He "knew they would be a smash" (Wiki). The was a record signing bonus paid (for the time). I do not know the reason for the super cheap artwork used on this release.
I believe this album was recorded in 1 week at Olympic Studios in London. The recording engineer for this album was the famous Glyn Johns. He is also famous for his work on The Rolling Stones and The Who among others.
I own the Complete Studio Recordings CD Box Set from the early 1990's, mixed by Jimmy Page himself. That was released 20 years ago. As a electrical engineer knowledgable about the evolution of audio equipment, and particularly Analog to Digital Converters, it is my opinion that this recently pressed Japan SHM CD is the best sound of this recording to date.
Perhaps sometime in the future a 24 bit/196 khz SACD will be available that would top this.
