I was in a real dilemma as to how to rate this. Five stars to the original album, and one star for the bonus disc, which as a package is blatant cash-in. It's about time Mr Page gave us some really worthwhile offerings, such as Earls Court '75 instead of these money making retreads.

Incredible remastering job from Mr Page and team. This remastering is amongst the best I have heard this side of the King Crimson 40th Anniversary Steven Wilson releases.

No point in rehashing the contents so I will just concentrate on the sound quality. The separation of the instruments and voices is a relevation.

When The Battle of Evermore starts you can tell that this version is special. Robert Plant and Sandy Denny just sound amazing. It is possible to clearly hear each ones every note as distinctly separate voices, which I have to admit to not being able to do so before. Plant even does three part harmonies at times, again, not something that previous versions laid out so clearly. There is a great bit of Pages studio trickery towards the end of the song where he uses varying amounts of reverb to get the voices to sweep in and then move away as the harmony lines build up. Sandy Denny's voice is a wonderful foil to Plant throughout.

The steel strung acoustic guitar at the start of Stairway rings out panned hard to the left, then in come the recorders co of John Paul Jones, as he overdubs a couple of lines. You can hear the wood in the recorders here.

John Bonhams cymbals all sound properly metallic and there is a difference between them rather than just a splashy tizz, so common on all too many CDs.

The sound of Bonhams drums on Levee can now be heard coming back down from the roof after whipping up past the mics ;-)

This set has the least interesting set of outtakes though. They sound too close to the finished items to be of sustained interest.

This is one of those rare occasions when you are far better off getting this version than the so-called deluxe version, with a pointless second disc. The original album doesn't need anything else written about it. It's simply one of the greatest works in rock history, and you don't need a second disc you'll only ever play once.

This was a pioneering rock album by the band everyone aspired to be at the time, and are influenced by now. Unlike many other groundbreakers, this isn't particularly dated and still holds its own in a market that has moved on.

'Stairway to Heaven' deserves to be remembered as one of the all-time great tracks, but the others aren't fillers. More a case of 'Stairway' as the pinnacle of the album. Plant's vocals are forthright, bluesy and angst-ridden. Page's guitar lines are ideal in each situation and provide some great riffs. Bonham's drumming really is incredible rock drumming - hard, heavy, and not always as predicted. Somehow John-Paul Jones and his bass are by comparison, merely perfect.

There's a variety here - rocky numbers like 'Black Dog' and 'Rock n Roll', then slow blues like 'When the Levy Breaks'.

Since this album, the rock guitar has become louder and heavier through Motorhead, AC/DC, Anthrax, Slayer, through to the modern thrash. Despite that, this album still sounds fresh and has an edge of creative genius that many new bands just don't have as much of.

I write this not as someone who was there when it came out and is nostalgic (I'm too young!) but someone who found it after discovering the modern rock and metal world. And it's still, really, that good.

I remember walking up to Dolphin Discs in Talbot Street in Dublin in November 1971 and seeing the long-awaited album sleeve to Led Zeppelin's new album be given pride of place in their window display. Even at the tender age of thirteen and twelve - my sister Frances and I were devoted Zeppelites - so I drew closer to ogle. Someone in the shop had made a white cardboard star, drawn "LED ZEP IV! IT'S HERE!!" in the album's inner sleeve calligraphy and stuck the card star on the top right of the untitled matt sleeve. People were stopping to gawk - what's the big deal? But I remember thinking only one thing. Cheeky buggers - the Zeps are now so big they haven't even put a bleeding title on it! How very...well...Rock and Roll.

Fast-forward to 2014 and another reissue and yet another (far better) remaster. Here are the levees breaking, hops on misty mountains and the May Queen bustling in your hedgerow...
