Product Description

Product Description

Assembled after drummer John Bonham's death, this 1982 release featured some real nuggets for Led Zep fans drawn from throughout their career, including We're Gonna Groove; Ozone Baby; Poor Tom; I Can't Quit You Baby; Wearing and Tearing , and more.

Amazon.ca

Coda, released in 1982 after the break-up of the band, was the result of a trawl through the studio archives in search of leftover material. In fact, they had already used up almost all of the good stuff and, compared to their other releases, this was Led Zeppelin's only disappointing album. Nevertheless, even relatively poor material by Led Zeppelin still represents a decent level of quality and some tracks are classic, particularly "Poor Tom", "Ozone Baby" and "Wearing And Tearing". The latter song, one of three out-takes from the In Through The Out Door sessions, features a particularly high-octane blend of stripped-down and grungy rock and roll and is often spoken of as their response to contemporary punk. As so little studio material was found, they added live versions of "I Can't Quit You Babe" and "We're Gonna Groove" from 1970, the first of which in particular features some blistering playing. Even so, it was still their shortest ever release. --James Swift

In 1982, two years after Led Zeppelin called it a day following the death of their irreplaceable drummer John Bonham, the band released the rarities album, "Coda," containing most of the last remnants of studio outtakes the band had left in the vaults. The problem was, Zeppelin had already used up most of their studio leftovers on their double-album, "Physical Graffitti," so the eight songs that make up "Coda" clock in at a very brief 33 minutes. So, yes, "Coda" is a very sparse Zeppelin collection, but most of the songs ARE very strong, and besides, what diehard fan would actually turn down a CD of some rare Zeppelin goodies, however sparse? Certainly not me.Only two tracks sound like throwaways to me: "Walter's Walk" and "Ozone Baby" are okay, but are mostly meandering and unmemorable. The rest of "Coda," however, is great. "We're Gonna Groove" and "I Can't Quit You Baby," both recorded in 1970, are absolutely *blistering* blues covers. "Poor Tom" is a true Zeppelin gem, with it's locomotive rhythm and awesome performance by the band. "Darlene," an outtake from "In Through The Out Door," is a fun 50's-style rock 'n' roller. John Bonham's drum showcase, "Bonzo's Montreaux," is just plain awesome. This is no mere drum solo, this is a magnificent drum piece with a definitive beginning, middle, and end, and it rocks. God bless you, Bonham! And "Wearing And Tearing," another leftover from "In Through The Out Door," is a tough, high-octane Zeppelin rocker.Led Zeppelin's "Coda" is what it is---an outtakes collection. Therefore, you can't really compare it fairly to Zeppelin's "proper" studio albums. But as an outtakes album, it is, for the most part, excellent. A darn good coda indeed for one of the greatest rock bands to ever walk the face of the earth.

Coda is amazing for what it is, which is a collection of rejected songs to fulfil a contract, However the fact that these songs were rejected from albums like Untitled should not mean they are thought of as crap, We're Gonna Groove is often the first thing I listen to (before stairway to heaven), the album is also supported by songs like Ozone Baby, Poor Tom and Darlene as well as the live version of I can't quit you babe (this exact version is found on the first disk of the newly released DVD) all of which sound incredible, as well as Bonzo's Montreux which, as a drummer myself, amazes me no end.
However the album was slightly let down by Wearing and Tearing and especally Walter's Walk both of which seem slightly tedious and disjointed.
In all though Coda is a very underrated album, with 6 out of 8 songs sounding great, however, like many of the other reviews on this page point out, it seems a much better idea to buy the more famous zeppelin albums before this and leave this for the more hardcore fans (no matter how much they're played on the radio stations - because that makes them rubbish apparently)
So basically if you'r into led zeppelin then this is for you

OK so Led Zeppelin were broken up in 1982 when CODA was released and Atlantic or Mr. Page wished to capitalise on the public's appetite for more Zeppelin. Today Zeppelin is still broken up and despite numerous financial successes at re-releases and compliations including the ultra-amazing "How the West was won" Live CD and DVD, they are still part of the past.
This is the point of CODA, its a retrospective spanning their career with some of the unfriendliest moments in music if youre a Zeppelin fan. Still CODA isnt as unlistenable as In Through the Out Door, which posts the poorest outing the foursome have ever crafted...ending the story on a bad note such as that 1979 release was simply too much for the band and the fans to bear.
In Through the Out Door was recorded, "mainly in the dark, in Sweden." Plant's son had died and he was in utter torment. Page could barely hold his axe and certainly could no longer wield it with the expertise he once did. The relationship among band members was becoming increasingly frayed. JP Jones and Plant picked up the pieces and tried to move on, they failed, but to their credit put out a proud Led Zeppelin effort (and in the process helped invent New Wave).
This brings us to CODA, its the long tearful goodbye to a band that was and is a legend. When I look at bands like the Rolling Stones and how their tours make zillions of dollars, yet they have acomlished NOTHING musically in the past 25 years, they simply live on past achievements when the band and the sexed up ideology should have been put to rest ages ago, how truly sad. CODA puts Zeppelin to rest with dignity the rauchy-blues infused rock weve come to expect from Zoso and Co.
Will Zeppelin do a reunion tour? Who can say...well I can say thats impossible, with Bonzos death so too did Zeppelin die. Any regrouping would be something new, and I know this because I've read the final chapter called CODA.

.....then why is it good enough now? There are two sides to the music industry...the artistic side, and the business side (for an excellent explanation of this, read the liner notes from The Moody Blues' themselves concerning the formation of their own label on the remaster of 'To our Children's Children's Children'). Coda was strictly a money maker for the record company and the band (and who owned the record label?). That's all. During the sessions (as with ALL sessions, regardless of the artist involved), if there is too much material to fit on an album (and back then it was roughly 45 minutes...tops), decisions have to be made to leave something off. So, the worst material is left off, or saved for a later album, possibly to fit in with a different theme. Everyone of these tracks were left off because they were the worst of the worst. The boss, AKA Jimmy Page, thought they were not worthy to be on an album. Then the death of Bonham, and here they are. As a huge Zeppelin fan from all the way back into the 70s, I bought everything I could get my hands on by these guys, including Plant's putrid solo albums. I knew when Coda was released way back that it wouldn't be any good. After the first listen, I was vindicated. I saw it for what it was...a (potential) money-maker.
