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.

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

Since its release in 1982, Coda, a collection of outtakes from Led Zeppelin's legendary career, has been slammed by critics and fans alike who felt the work was sub par for the seminal British hard rock band. It is true that there are few songs on Coda that live-up to the standards set by Zeppelin's eight albums, which probably explains why they are outtakes.
Listeners have been unfair to Coda by judging it by the standards of other Led Zeppelin albums. It was not meant to have the impact of those releases. Coda was compiled strictly for Zeppelin's diehard fans; to save them the from attempting to accumulate the band's entire body of work through expensive bootlegs. Although, it is certainly weaker than most of Led Zeppelin's albums, as a one of many serious Zeppelin acolytes, I appreciate the gaps filled by Coda.
Side A presents some excellent tracks from 1969 and 70, back when Led Zeppelin were young, boisterous bluesrockers. "Poor Tom" is a hypnotically melodic, jangley footstomper; "We're Gonna Groove" exemplifies the enthralling, scrambling guitar style of early Jimmy Page and the energetic cover of Willie Dixon's "I Can't Quit You Babe," recorded during a 1970 rehearsal, surpasses the version of the tune on their self-entitled debut.
The second side does not fair as well. It features lumbering hard rock songs recorded for Led Zeppelin's final album, 1979's In Through the Out Door, that were abandoned when the band decided to adopt a synthesizer-infused sound for the album. Some of the songs indicate why they felt a change in style was necessary.

This is part of the latest (and last) "remaster" releases for Led Zeppelin. As per usual, the packaging is very well done and this time around, so is the pressing (all of mine say printed in the EU so I can only assume they've learned from past blunders). All my records from this latest release (Presence, ITTOD, CODA) all are good and flat and without flaw. (some people like to argue about the remaster job, but honestly, they sound great) I've listened to these versions against original pressings and the "classic album 200g" versions and I must say (and this doesn't take into account peoples personal systems that may enhance or diminish freq etc...after all it is vinyl and people get systems that suit their own tastes) that listening to this entire series has been a pleasant experience for me. All the records seem more even and "proper" in their freq spectrum's (yes, I work in the music industry on the technical side) than any other version out there that I've heard.

This album, having been originally released as a way to fulfill contract obligations after John Bonham's untimely demise, was a collection of outtakes and live tunes etc... that really never fulfilled the brief as a true full Zeppelin album...but now....where this one differs from the rest is the fact that the extra content actually warrants lots and lots of play. There are several "unreleased" and previously released on special edition songs such as the usual "Hey Hey What Can I Do" and "Travelling Riverside Blues" along with a few surprises. (Legacy complete as far as I'm concerned) ...please read my reviews of the rest of the series for particulars.

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.
