Zep were now able to fully showcase the "light and shade" approach to their music that sets them so firmly apart from the other bands of that era, and fairly much any "rock" band since. It is hard to understand how they ever got labelled as heavy metal when going back through these three albums because the breadth of the nature of the songs really stretches from the heart felt slow acoustic numbers, such as Tangerine, right up to the heavy rocking, but not heavy metal, full tilt sonic blast of the Immigrant Song. The remastering really coaxes out the sound of the acoustic guitars in a most delicious and convincing way. They now sound like instruments of steel and wood, rather than good impersonations of them.
The bonus cd has loads of absolutely splendid moments throughout. Highlights for me are the stunning version of Since I've Been Loving You, Page starting the tune of with a more subdued guitar line than in the main album version, which of course gives him greater scope when it comes down to contrasting the really powerful sections against the easy going ones.
Gallows Pole is a stunner and possibly better than the previously released version. JPJ has some great bass lines going on here, as he changes his timing, the way he adds ascending and descending arpeggios, when he kicks in with the melody and so on.Read more ›
However, and the reason for the one star deduction, my one very, very big gripe with this reissue is that with an entire extra disc to play with, no room could be found for the non-album 'B' side to the 'Immigrant song' single, ie 'Hey, hey, what can I do'. This could easily have been included without deleting any of the outtakes, and is way ahead in terms of quality of more than a few of these extra tracks. Why on earth was this left off? I doubt very much indeed if I'm the only Led Zeppelin fan left puzzled and disappointed by this omission.
Five stars for the music of course, but this really is a missed opportunity to bring a good track in from the cold.
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.
