Product Description

Amazon.ca

Here are the original monsters of rock in all their epic, bombastic glory. The Who may have had more decibels (a dubious distinction), but no band took hard rock higher into the stratosphere than the Zep did with their cosmic mixture of deep blues, gothic melodrama and the supernatural chops of Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones. For listeners new to the Zep canon, there's no better primer of the band's range and power than this four CD box set, compiled and remixed in 1990 by Page himself. All the obvious song choices are here but even if you've already heard "Black Dog" once too often on the car radio, this set wisely spotlights several overlooked gems, including their ultimate blues lament "I'm Gonna Crawl". It's a blueprint that later generations of head-bangers tragically failed to follow. --Steve Appleford

By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It was the fall of 1990, and I was on the verge of graduating highschool and entering the "real" world. However, my musical development was way far behind -- everybody's was, in 1990. Poison, Whitesnake and Motley Crue ruled the charts: All bands, one way or another, influenced by Zeppelin. Yet, I had avoided actually hearing a Zeppelin studio recording. MuchMusic's endless showing of The Song Remains The Same had cooled any interest I might have had in this great band. So what happened?

In 1990, pop rock was showing its first signs of death and I was becoming interested in bluesier, rockier sounds. I was beginning to listen to FM radio and I heard a song called "Travelling Riverside Blues". The slide guitar was eloquent and infectious. Immediately, I wondered what I was missing.

A friend, who also had never owned a Zeppelin album in his life, picked up the Box Set released that fall. I asked him how it was. Cryptically, he responded, "It's good." It went on my Christmas list and I anxiously opened it on December 25, 1990.

I read the liner notes and I listened to the whole thing in one marathon almost-5-hour-session. Today, this is the running order that I associate these Zeppelin songs in, not the original studio album order.

For the record, this is no substitute for owning all the Zeppelin studio albums. Thay have a life all their own. However, Jimmy Page carefully assembled this running order to breathe new life into these tracks, and breathe they do.

I can't imagine a better opener than "Whole Lotta Love". It is a one-two punch followed by "Heartbreaker", and then "Communication Breakdown" took things to an out-of-control pace. Geniously, Page followed this with "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You". I was hooked.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is where rock begins and ends Oct. 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first CD box set I ever owned, and now after 10 years of ware and tear on the CDs, I'm buying it again. I can't say enough of how LZ shaped my childhood and teenage years and eventually got me playing electric bass in a few bands. We used to hash out "The Ocean" for about 10 minutes... Great CD collection.
My only complaint are the missing songs, which Box Set 2 provides (and gives you most everything LZ ever recorded). I was somewhat aghast when "Lemon Song", "That's the Way", "Good Times, Bad Times", "Down by the Seaside" and "Bring it on Home" didn't make the cut. But then again, the second box set includes all the missing tracks from this set, so I suggest throwing in the extra $20 for the second set. These two box sets include (I believe) a bit more than the 10 albums that LZ released, plus you get the nice book liners and have all the songs on 6 CDs, not 10.
If you are wondering where to start with your LZ collection, I recommend Led Zeppelin II (my favorite rock album of all time), and then this box set. You can't go wrong.

If you have always heard about Led Zeppelin but never really figured out whether you might like them or not, you owe it to yourself to purchase this album and find out why the band is considered to be the greatest rock & roll band of all-time. Their best-known hits are here, as are songs that you might never hear on the radio but would fall in love with nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Set from the Greatest Band July 8 2004
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
Before this set, I was a fan of Zeppelin, but not a huge listener. Sinec buying these 4 cd's, I am a hardcore Zeppelin fan, and at least one of these cd's can be found in my cd player at all times. There are some songs that were missed that I felt should have been added (livin lovin) but all in all, this covers all you need, and the reading material that accompanies the set is a valuable addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOXED SET July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am someone who thinks Zeppelin is the greatest band of all time, and happen to have most of their stuff: Zeppelin 1-3, ZOFO, House Of The Holy, Physical Grafitti, The Song Remains The Same, BBC Sessions, How The West Was Won, Early And Later Days, and BOTH this and the later 2 CD set. I happen to think this is a great set and well worth the money. I think that this set is for someone who is a Zeppelin fan, but not yet a completist. When I got the set (Then the second boxed set), I decided that after listening more than once, I should finish the collection (And I will later this year). As for the negative comments here, I cannot believe ANYONE who really knows Zeppelin can put them down (Unless of course, they are nothing but trolls out to cause trouble).I cannot overstate how good this set really is, so you should get it for your collection: You will love it, it really is a great boxed set.
