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!!

I'm not a big fan of remastered vinyl albums but this one is an exception (although I've only my 42 year old vinyl copy to compare it with!)Normally the remastering leaves a clinical,clear, yet lifeless recording,but as the technology evolves, that seems to be less of a problem. There is a striking clarity about it, the acoustic and electric guitar and drums sound as if they are being played live in the room.

For most people I guess "the" Led Zeppelin album is the 4th or "runes" album, but certainly amongst me and my sixth form mates of that era, the first album was the best, more coherent than the live offerings of Cream, it showcased the talents of the band members perfectly, it's hard to grasp how different this band were then, I'd never seen anyone play a guitar with a violin bow! Perhaps there is a certain naivete in the choice of songs, some of them covers that most of us had not heard of then, but the rawness and sheer power of the performances before fame, booze, drugs and over inflated egos is refreshing. I saw them numerous times between 1971 and 1977 or so and, like the album, the most electrifying performances were the early ones. If you are looking for 30 minute guitar or drum solos you will be disappointed, but if you believe that the great performances are more about what you don't play, the soul you put into it and the space in a performance then you'll love it.

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?

Every rock music fan has their defining Led Zeppelin moment or defining zep album. For some it's the potent riffery of '2', for some it's the diversity of Physical Graffitti, with me it's 'Presence' but in truth, each album is a defining moment, (even 'In through the out door' had its moments!) and as such each is a snapshot of where the band were musically at the time. Led Zeppelin 1 (or the first album, as you prefer) is special as it set the template for what was to come. The template got added to, expanded, extended, sometimes twisted about, but this debut carries all the elements that make Led Zeppelin so special, the breadth of scope from the blistering hard rock of communication breakdown through the acoustic shimmering beauty of 'Black mountain side' to the raw blues of You shook me and 'How many more times. 'Good times bad times' comes charging out of the traps like a (black) dog on heat only to make way for the delicacy of the acoustic intro to 'Babe I'm gonna leave you' which soon packs a fair wallop itself as the juggernaut gets going. Then its Plant in fine voice, playing off Page for Willie Dixon's 'You shook me' before the 'tour de force that is 'Dazed and confused' I much prefer this version to the 27 minute behemoth that clogs up a who;e side (side??) of the live soundtrack, 'The song remains the same'
Just to show that Page isn't the only mad musical genius, JPJ turns in some beautifully uplifting organ playing for 'Your time is gonna come' which melts into a change of mood for 'Black Mountain side' which is in turn steamrolled by possibly the most savage riff that they ever committed to vinyl in Communication breakdown. No need for any pointless meandering here, they make their statement of intent in 2 and a half minutes.
