Presence, In Through The Out Door, and Coda have been remastered for 2015 by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by companion audio comprised of previously unreleased music related to the original release.
Originally released in 1976, Presence was recorded during a whirlwind 18-day session at Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany. The album which peaked at #1 in both the U.S. and UK and was certified triple platinum crackles with energy on Zeppelin classics like Nobody s Fault But Mine and Achilles Last Stand and delivers powerful jolts of the group at its visceral best.
The companion audio disc that accompanies Presence has five unreleased reference mixes from the sessions, which reveal works in progress. Along with alternate incarnations of For Your Life Achilles Last Stand and Royal Orleans, there is also the previously unheard instrumental curiously titled 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod).

Single CD Remastered original album. Presence will be packaged in a gatefold card wallet.

I may not be objective because this came out when I was in high school, knee deep in the 70's. It's better today than it was almost 4 decades ago.
Musically, Presence has some really excellent compositions, although I caught the faintest whiff of arena rock on some tracks – the “sword and sorcery” mysticism of earlier albums was definitely wearing off. Then again, this was 1976 and flower power was ancient history. In terms of the performances of the group members, they really are very good –John Bonham in particular does a fantastic job on Achilles Last Stand. I guess my only regret is that they didn’t save some of the Physical Graffiti material for this album – Presence would have been spectacular. Then again, had they done that, we would not have Physical Graffiti.
This remastered album is not bad – it has good sound quality and some generic liner notes that include the track listing, production credits etc.
All in all this is a good album by the group and has enough to offer the Led Zeppelin fan that it should provide some good listening. Recommended along with II (1969), III (1970), IV (or ZoSo) (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973) and Physical Graffiti. Although I enjoy the 1979 follow-up album In through the out Door, it does not have the energy of Presence.
