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

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin 2014 The Paris gig....... 9 Jun 2014
By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK, so all of the previous owners are familiar with the material here, best described by someone elsewhere in the reviews here as a collection of thinly disguised blues covers, to pad things out, along with a couple of new songs that Jimmy had been working on with the Yardbirds. I can't argue with that, but what I can say is that Zep took that stuff and made it their own. They completely adrenalised it and took the material places that it had never been before. It was a stunning debut album by any standards. Jeff Beck had his version of similar material, which is great in it's own way, but not the aural trouncing that Zep gave it.

This new remastering really lets the whole thing breath a bit more openly, Pages acoustic guitar work and JPJ's pipe organ work being the main benefactors. There does appear to have been some sort of dynamic noise filtering used, perhaps even certain tracks have had noise limiting whereas others have not. Something strange is definitely afoot in the mix. The top end that gets pulled out with the usual noise reduction appears to have been sorted out by re-equing what was left.......or something along those lines. Everything still ends up as clear as the proverbial. Having said this, it works for me. It certainly has not sucked the life out of it the way Cedar noise reduction did when it came out. Crank up the amp and it is all there, ready to work your ears.

The bonus cd has a gig from Paris on it and this appears to be a source of some distress to some listeners. I am not one of those listeners. Sure I have heard better sound quality recordings, but rarely have I felt that the atmosphere of the gig was floating right out of the speakers. This gig is wild!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Improved remaster? 10 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
As there are so many versions out there, this is a review of the deluxe CD edition.
I have three versions of this album - vinyl that I bought many, many years ago, the mid-nineties remastered CD, and now this. As the vinyl was played to death I now only listen to the CDs of it, so, does this edition sound better than the earlier remaster? Not noticeably to me on my mid-range equipment but no doubt the audiophiles out there will say differently.
What about the live Paris CD then? Sounds a bit odd to me; it could be that the recording equipment couldn't cope with the sonic attack of the Zeppelin but there are times when the different instruments can't be heard clearly. Obviously there is a lack of decent soundboard recordings from that time but the BBC did a pretty fine job of it recording Zep shortly afterwards.
Can't see that I'll listen to the live CD very often - who needs it when the main album is so very, very good.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When the CD first arrived as a format in 1984 - few Led Zeppelin fans would have thought it would take 30 years for decent remasters of the fave crave - but unfortunately after hearing these dreadfully dull-sounding new versions - they may want to wait another thirty. It's not all bad of course but I'd swear that the "Mothership" 2007 remasters sound way better and far more alive - and the 2012 Japanese SHM-CD again features better sound. Anyway here are the details...

UK released 2 June 2014 (3 June in the USA) - Atlantic/Swan Song 8122796457 breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 (44:56 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are their debut album "Led Zeppelin" - originally issued 12 January 1969 in the USA on Atlantic SD-8216 and 31 March 1969 in the UK on Atlantic 588 171 on vinyl LP

Disc 2 (71:16 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 8 are a PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED concert recorded live at The Olympia Theatre in Paris France on 10 October 1969 (Broadcast 2 November 1969 by the French Radio Station 'Europe 1')

The 3-way gatefold card sleeve features alternative artwork on the rear with the original back cover of the LP moved to the inside left flap. The two other inner flaps feature classy black and whites but I must say the alternate artwork leaves me cold. The 16-page booklet has gorgeous black and white/colour photos of the band live at the time - but that's where the good news stops. There are two pages at the rear that give you the basic track info but bugger all else - there are literally no liner notes - nor any history of the album and its importance - nothing from Page or Plant. It's good - but it could have been great - and frankly why isn't it?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hammer of the Gods! 20 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Led Zeppelin's reputation as the world's premier rock band is richly deserved, and their debut album shows exactly why. Many bands drew upon the blues as the basis for their music; but few did it with the depth of feeling, conviction and understanding of Led Zeppelin. Their two Willie Dixon numbers that they covered on this album, You Shook Me and I Cant Quit You Baby, are a case in point. No effete and limp wristed attempt at the blues here, which typified the British blues boom at this time. Instead, they attacked the songs with a ferocity and depth of feeling that matches, in their own way, a true originator like Howling Wolf. They make the songs their own in a way a more reverential act, such John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, never could. Zeppelin never "ripped off the blues" as has so often been claimed: rather, they interpreted it in their own highly individual manner, and drew upon it for their own music.

What made them so good was that they were all so highly talented. Plant's range, volume and depth of feeling were amazing. Page's technique, both on acoustic and electric guitar, had been honed by years of session work until he reached the dazzling brilliance for which he became known. Bonham's awesome drumming is like nothing else before or since: thunderous, aggressive, but with such perfect and unusual timing. Bonham, more than anyone, defined the sound of Zeppelin. Then, ofcourse, you had John Paul Jones' subtle bass playing. Their talent is beautifully highlighted on the six minute forty-one second exercise in musical dynamics, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You. Page's percussive and rhythmic acoustic guitar playing is continuously punctuated by sudden and unexpected attacks of the rhythm section with Bonham laying down the beat as if he was beating time for the Gods themselves.
