This was the first Zeppelin album I ever bought, and loved the rotating wheel in the cover, which is what this vinyl replica edition has as well. Hats of, not just to Harper, but also to whoever decided to reissue all the Zep albums in their original forms (e.g. this, the cut-out windows on Physical Graffiti, the brown paper bag on In Through the Out Door etc).
I'm not going to say anything about the music, as we all (should) know that this is a masterpiece, which still sounds as brilliant as it did the day it was recorded.

I would rather listen to this so-called 'underrated' album on repeat for fifty years than listen to 95% of modern chart music. If there's anything to appreciate about Led Zeppelin above anything else, it's their diversity - rock, blues, folk, African rhythms, you name it, they're not sticking to one genre. Robert Plant has demonstrated time and time again through the Zep years and in his solo career that music shouldn't be static, the boundaries should always be pushed. My advice, buy this album in order to get a taste of Led Zeppelin doing everything. It's a shame this album wasn't appreciated for what it is when it was released. Oh well, that's the way...

"Do As Thou Wilt..." is a famous quote by the infamous Aliester Crowley that was stickered to some copies of the original late 1970 LP Led Zeppelin III.Apart from the lack of this sticker,this is a superb reproduction of the original gatefold sleeve,including a revolving wheel that changes some pictures on the front as it is gyrated.The CD bears the LP label and is the remastered version."Do as thou wilt.." became the working policy of Jimmy Page,a Crowley admirer.
Led Zeppelin III represents the band's consolidation both collectively and individually with the fusion of Rock,Blues and Folk,Page's visionary quest,more apparent and cohesive than ever.The density of the orchestrations is now copious,with electric and acoustic instruments playing along in perfect harmony,definitely Page's crowning achievement as a producer.
"Gallows Pole" is the prime example of this density and diversity,with acoustic and elecric guitars playing with a banjo and a mandolin to a bass/drums rhythm.The developement of the piece is gradual as it goes from Country to Celtic to Rock.Robert Plant "plays" various characters with his amazing vocal work.Plant mastered his vocal delivery on this album.
An eastern-flavored string arrangement composed and conducted by John Paul Jones on "Friends" with a single,haunting acoustic guitar driving the song;"acid" delta blues with bottleneck frenzy on "Hats Off To Roy Harper",virtuoso finger-picking and strumming with a clear nod to Bert Jansch on "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp",pedal steel guitar embelishments for "Tangerine" and "That's The Way" are this album's path to glory.

Purchasing the 2014 remaster of any Led Zeppelin album is a huge mistake. I have recently made this mistake with a Led Zeppelin III replacement CD purchased in a hurry.

The 1997 remaster from the original tapes by Jimmy Page and George Marino at Sterling Sound is the far, far, far superior Led Zeppelin III CD. This info is always printed right next to the bar code on the back cover of every album.

The important bits here are "George Marino at Sterling Sound " and "from the original tapes."

This is also true for Led Zeppelin albums I & II & IV & Houses of the Holy & Physical Graffiti.
The slight difference with Led Zeppelin I is that it is a 1994 remaster ... but still "George Marino at Sterling Sound " and "from the original tapes" is the one to go for.

These "George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original tapes" remaster CDs really are taken directly from the original 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973 & 1975 tapes and are faithful in all frequency ranges with the right levels. They are a pleasure to listen to, especially on a really good stereo that can produce all those frequencies.

The 2014 remasters have not been taken from the original tapes and have some quite peculiar and deeply irritating changes.
The 2014 mid tones seem less affected, but still they are slightly flattened as if they have been down sampled mp3 style.
The 2014 bass end of absolutely everything is muddy and far, far less distinct and clear than it should be. I have many recordings which I have compared (vinyl, tape & CD) and so the substandard quality on the 2014 versions is definite. At first it is hard to believe what has been done and then it becomes an unavoidable irritation.

This is Zeppelin's best album . . . and probably the best album ever made. Every song is a wonder, superbly written and superbly played. Page's guitar playing is majestic, Plant's voice at it's most soulful.

If you one of those people that think that Led Zeppelin should be just loud and thrashing then this isn't the album for you, you'll probably like 'Immigrants Song' and no more - but you're missing out on something amazing and magical. 'That's the way' for instance, beautiful, delicate, and hypnotic. 'Bron-Y-Aur Stomp', a homage to the companionship and love of our canine friends (in Plant's case his dog 'Stryder'). And 'Tangerine', with it's recollections of a past love. Every track here is a gem.

This album is set apart from others by it's soulfulness, it's depth, and it's connections with nature - both the nature of the human soul and the wonder of the environment around us. Wonderful lyrics, amazing music - and the album sleeve is pretty good too. Music never got better than this . . . and probably never will.
