Product Description

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

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Still Led Zeppelin... June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is what it is. A collection of outtakes, but it's still Led Zeppelin. If Coda had been released 20 years after the band split, instead of when it was, it would have received far more fanfare, and better reviews than it did. I'd recommend this to anyone.
It's similiar to The Beatles' "Let It Be", in that it's by far not their best work, but so vastly superior to most other bands that it's still pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be deceived--it's real good June 14 2004
By T.A.
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to review this record. It's like being asked to review a Picasso that was never exhibited, or a concept car that never touched the road. There are reasons why these objects were never marketed.
With that, I must say that I really like this CD. I have all of Zep's CDs, including the BBC stuff. I won't skip any songs when I listen to this one usually. "Darlene" gets skipped from time to time, and maybe "Poor Tom." But "We're Gonna Groove," "Ozone Baby," "Walters Walk" and "Wearing and Tearing" are terrific rock songs. The version of "I Can't Quit You Baby" on this CD was recorded during a sound check, hours before one of their concerts. A sound check!!!! And it sounds unreal! I'm sorry, but I can't see how anyone could say anything bad about this CD. It's Zeppelin, and it's the perfect ending to a collective musical career that nearly spanned 3 decades. Toward the end, we saw a major shift in the band's dynamic; we witnessed Jimmy dive deep into the dimentia of drugs; Robert start and attempt to maintain a family; the resurgence of John Paul and his ability to craft beautiful (but not "rock") songs; and the death of the most innovative, talented, groovy drummer the rock genre saw to this point in history. (Say what you will about Neil Peart, Carl Palmer, Dave Grohl, Tony Thompson, Ginger Baker, etc.--none of them remained a STALWART on top of the percussion world as long as this man.)
I don't favor the John Paul Jones material that dominated "Presence" and "In Through The Out Door," which may explain my love for "Coda." I think "Achilles' Last Stand" and "Tea For One" might be two of Zep's best songs ever, but as albums, "Presence" and "In Through..." aren't nearly as strong as earlier, Page/Plant written recordings.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Leftover Led June 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated June 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
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
