Biography

Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues -- it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) -- into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press detested the band. Consequently, the only ... Read more in Amazon's Led Zeppelin Store

Product Description

Product Description

WSM.UK are proud to announce the release of all the led zeppelin albums with "vinyl replica" packaging, featuring original album artwork, gatefolds where applicable, inner sleeves and in the case of Led Zeppelin III, a revolving wheel as featured on the original LP release. Previously only available as very pricey imports, these albums are now available at mid price.

Amazon.co.uk

Coda, released in 1982 after the break-up of the band, was the result of a trawl through the studio archives in search of leftover material. In fact, they had already used up almost all of the good stuff and, compared to their other releases, this was Led Zeppelin's only disappointing album. Nevertheless, even relatively poor material by Led Zeppelin still represents a decent level of quality and some tracks are classic, particularly "Poor Tom", "Ozone Baby" and "Wearing And Tearing". The latter song, one of three out-takes from the In Through The Out Door sessions, features a particularly high-octane blend of stripped-down and grungy rock and roll and is often spoken of as their response to contemporary punk. As so little studio material was found, they added live versions of "I Can't Quit You Babe" and "We're Gonna Groove" from 1970, the first of which in particular features some blistering playing. Even so, it was still their shortest ever release. --James Swift

PLEASE NOTE : THIS IS THE ONLY REVIEW OF THE 2008 JAPANESE LIMITED EDITION REISSUE.

When it was first released, the general consensus was that Coda was a cash-in and a disappointment, which indeed it seemed like, at the time.

Although listening to it again after many years, I found there was much to like here, including a storming studio version of We're Gonna Groove, the old live favourite from their early days, which they returned to on the 1980 European Tour, an excellent alternative take of I Can't Quit You Baby from the first album, as well as Poor Tom, Walter's Walk, Darlene and Wearing and Tearing, which are all better tracks than most of those found on In Through The Out Door.

Where the album falls down is with the throwaway Ozone Baby and the self-indulgent Bonzo's Montreux, which is proof-positive that Bonham may have been an extremely powerful drummer, but not the most inventive and also it's jumbled, confused running order.

However, browsing for a copy on CD, a while back, I came across this import from Japan, which includes the following 4 tracks from the expensive studio sessions box, which are not available elsewhere : Baby Come Home, Travelling Riverside Blues, White Summer/Black Mountain Side and Hey Hey What Can I Do, from the early days, all of which are excellent and make a mediocre album well worth owning.

BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL TO CHECK WITH THE VENDOR BEFORE BUYING, AS THE ADDITIONAL 4 TRACKS ON THIS VERSION ARE NOT LISTED ON THE BACK OF THE SLEEVE, BUT ARE LISTED IN THE ACCOMPANYING BOOKLET - THE OBI STRIP WILL CONFIRM THIS.

Coda can be seen as a journey through Zeppelin's career, it contains material written from various albums but not deemed up to scratch. Even if the band members found that the songs were not quite good enough for previous albums,it contains some stunning tracks. The pick of these for me are 'Wearing and Tearing', 'Ozone baby', 'Walters walk' and 'Darlene', all excellent songs, I'm surprised they never made the album's they were intended for. To me, this album is superior to 'In Through The Outdoor' (an album Page and Bonham didn't have as much influence on), although it is much derided by some fan's, who just see it as a money making ploy at the time by Atlantic records. I'm one of those fan's who would gratefully pay for any unreleased Zeppelin material, to me everything they touched was gold.
Some have been asking why tracks such as 'Hey, Hey, What Can I Do' were not included on this album? Well that's to do with copyright and that all surviving members of Led Zeppelin had to agree to the realise of material. 'Hey , Hey What Can I Do' is not even available for download in the UK, whereas 'Travelling Riverside Blues' is available on the 'BBC Sessions' album.

I first bought this album two years ago, although previously, my brother said it wasn't all that good. My opinion : it's well worth buying for the blistering album closer, WEARING AND TEARING, which is best played extremely loud, as it's a rampaging monster of a track, used as an answer to the punks who had written off Zep and which also could have been a slight precursor to the early '80s NWOBHM craze. This is the most aggressive song on the track, although 'Walter's Walk' is impressive, too. Cut in 1972 during the HOUSES OF THE HOLY sessions, this features a groovy Jimmy Page riff and is efficiently powered along by Bonzo's powerful drums. The 1970 soundcheck version of 'I Can't Quit You, Baby' is heavier than the original, further improved by Page's sizzling solo and 'We're Gonna Goove' ain't bad, either. As for the other songs? 'Poor Tom' is an okay acoustic effort, with a distinctive, opening drumbeat, 'Bonzo's Montreux' is a pretty interesting drum solo from the man himself and the New Wave influenced 'Ozone Baby' and 'Darlene' are adequate rockers, indicating the sort of direction Zeppelin were taking towards the end of the Seventies. CODA is not brilliant, but it's certainly worth a listen.

The musical legacy of the likes of Led Zep, Pink Floyd and the Beatles were not best served during the earlier CD era (say, up to the mid-90s). Bonus tracks were conspicuous in their absence and this album, a footnote to Led Zep's career (and very much a 'contractual obligation' job) is no exception. When The Who came to reissue 'Odds and Sods', they filled up the CD to twice the length of the original LP, what a result for fans! Here, on Coda, you just get the original eight tracks, all of which, by rights, should have been tacked on to whatever original album they come closest to as bonus tracks, so all in all, a bit of a swizz. Also a swizz is the fact that 'We're Gonna Groove', which for years I assumed to be a 1969 out-take, turns out (apparently) to be a 1970 live recording dressed up years later by Jimmy Page (hence octidivider, not available in '69), so something of a dog's breakfast but a very listenable one at that. I agree with other reviewers that there are some great tracks here, but overall it's one for completists. If you're a Led Zep newbie, just buy the first 4 albums, and perhaps 'How the West Was Won'. Alternately the four-CD boxed set from 1990 is worth investigating as a one-stop (and agreeably lengthy) career overview, which includes several 'Coda' tracks.
