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...

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.

I suspect like many fans - I bought all three of these 2CD DELUXE EDITIKNS on the day of release (Monday 2 June 2014 here in the UK). And after the initial disappointment of the "Led Zeppelin" debut version with its questionable sound on some tracks and its rubbish bootleg-sounding live bonus disc - I'm thrilled to say that "II" and "III" are entirely different beasts.

For me it's not the more applauded and revered "II" that tickles my spine - but the fabulous 'Acoustic' expansion of the British Super Group's songwriting chops on "III" that puts them head and shoulders above all the rest. This beauty has always made my eyes water and my quadruple bypass beat a little faster. Well - "III" now sounds fabulous - and the 'Companion Audio' CD actually warrants the word 'bonus' with some truly spine-tingling new additions. Here are the Tiny Flowers and Hangman Riding Many A Mile details...

UK released 2 June 2014 (3 June in the USA) – "Led Zeppelin II: Deluxe Edition" by LED ZEPPELIN on Atlantic/Swan Song 8122796449 is a 2CD Reissue/Remaster and plays out as follows...

1. Immigrant Song
2. Friends
3. Celebration Day
4. Since I've Been Loving You
5. Out On The Tiles

7. Tangerine
8. That's The way
9. Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
10. Hats Off To (Roy) Harper

"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.
