5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic album, with mediocre extras., 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Led Zeppelin [Deluxe CD Edition] (Audio CD)
"Led Zeppelin"'s debut is certainly a contender for the best debut ever by a British band. There is no doubt about that and no need to discuss the contents because if you're buying this rather than the single disc version then you know that already, except to say that the re-remastering means that it sounds as good today as it ever did. The bonus disc here is what you're really interested in. In all honesty, it's a bit of a disappointment. Yes, it's 1969 Led Zeppelin, but the recording leaves much to be desired. It's quite muddy and echoey, at times John Bonham's drums disappear from the mix altogether, although Robert Plant's vocals cut through great and he is in fine voice on the night. For me, it's not quite as electric as the "Danmarks Radio" set or other existing stuff from 1969. Still, better than nothing. I would have liked a 5:1 mix, as that's all the rage these days and has brought new life to material by Zeppelin's peers Yes, Jethro Tull & King Crimson's back catologue. Also a tad disappointed with the booklet, plenty photos, but no essays on recording/touring etc. The meat here is as juicy as it always has been, but the potatoes are a bit harder to chew.
