Prepare — no matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you've never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.

Beginning with the spring release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin I, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III, the band is launching 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.

Led Zeppelin I Deluxe Remastered Edition includes the previously unreleased Oct. 10, 1969 concert from Paris, on LP. 

"The material on the companion discs present 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."

Led Zeppelin was formed by Page, John Bonham, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant in 1968. It became among the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music. The band has sold more than300 million albums worldwide with a celebrated catalog including such landmark songs as "Whole Lotta Love," "Kashmir," "Rock And Roll," "When The Levee Breaks" and "Stairway To Heaven." The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Page brought in Plant, Bonham and Jones to tour as The New Yardbirds. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released its self-titled debut. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which the group was widely considered to be the biggest rock band in the world.

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.

"...a significant turning point in the evolution of hard rock and heavy metal." — AllMusic.com

Led Zeppelin I Re Master

posted on 06/15/2014
4 Stars
Reviewer: Triodeotl
This re-master is a surprise as far as the sound. The bass and the drums are much more defined on this compared to the PR pressed original Atlantic LP that I have. The sound is more open and dimensional. The LP is cut at a much higher level than the original. Can be played on a high end system and sounds very very good.

The bonus LP's blow away the bootleg versions that abound. But sound as if they were recorded in a gym and the bass is very heavy. Sometimes overbearing and very cloudy.

But the original LP is totally recommended. The bonus LP's is just that bonus material. Led Zeppelin collectors and fans will just love them.

There are some digital artifacts apparent in the highs and a brightness to the sound but I think taking the digital medium to a mechanical analog one makes this LP a success. Get the 1st pressings while you can.

Recommended ++++
