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

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.

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.

If you just woke up out of a 35 year coma well then congrats to you and pay attention. Obviously you missed out on some pretty amazing stuff but in the late 60's and 70's there was this little band called Led Zeppelin. They were the biggest baddest rock stars of all time with the fastest guitars and the most grouplies. This is the box set you want as it will take care of all your Led Zepplelin listening needs and introduce you to the kings of rock and roll.
This is the quintesential neccesity for any fan of music as the stuff here is so good, it really trancends any genre so those people you know who only listen to rap or country should stil aprecaite this. Serious classic rock fans are really the only ones who need not apply here since they will probably will want the individual albums in thier entirety. This is a great present for someone who is unfamiliar with the music or if someone has heard some Zeppelin on the radio but doesn't really own any on the music.
This is pretty much a compendium of all the good songs Zep ever made. They are all here and too numerous to list. There is another 2 CD box set that came out after this and this hasn't all of thier second rate song. All the purists and hard core fans will say the 2nd box set is just as important and that's bunk and they know it. Some say that the albums are themed and important to here in their natural form and there may be some merit to this but it is not important enough to merit passing this up if you are interested. The 4 CDs contain songs in chronilogical order of when the band released them and the order does a good job of exemplifying the progression of the band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty so so collection June 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
I borrowed this four-disc set from my roomate, since most of my Zeppelin stuff is still on tape. All in all, I think this is a pretty weak collection. Any Zeppelin compilation that doesn't include "Good Times, Bad Times" doesn't have much going for it right off the bat. It thankfully includes the underplayed "When the Levee Breaks;" but it leaves out the "Lemon Song"? It's pretty heavy on PHYSICAL GRAFFITI selections, which is great, but you might as well buy the album and skip some of the pretty awful songs from the later albums that are included on the fourth disc.
This set would be good for younger kids who are just getting into Zeppelin and want more exposure. They'll probably end up burning their favorite songs onto one disc, though. There's a complete, ten-disc collection, as well as the new live collection that just came out. If you're a Zep-head, go for those. I say just buy each individual album up to 1975's PHYSICAL GRAFFITI. The difference in price isn't drastic, and you get a lot of amazing, overlooked songs as well as all of the best this collection has to offer.

Led Zeppelin is an awesome band. They are probably my favourite band of all time. But, do not buy this CD. Every Led Zeppelin song is good, you need to hear them all. Read more
