Product Description

Amazon.ca

After plundering the Yardbirds' legacy and Willie Dixon (among others) for their blues-riff-heavy first two albums, Jimmy Page and company surprised many listeners with the strong acoustic/folk sensibility displayed on III. Page aficionados shouldn't have been caught off guard; the guitarist had toyed with similar sensibilities and modalities during his brief tenure with the Yardbirds (most notably "White Summer" from the Little Games album). Ever the creative thieves, Zep kick off the album by nicking the riff from "Bali Ha'i" no less, with Robert Plant wailing it to punctuate the thundering FM warhorse "Immigrant Song." Even other electric rockers like "Celebration Day" and "Out on the Tiles" have an inventive, offbeat musicality to them that suggest the band was already wary of stereotyping. But it's the decidedly mellower acoustic groove of the album's latter half that's the news here, from the graceful beauty of "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" to the raw, folksy charm of "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp," "Hats Off (to Roy Harper)," and the traditional "Gallows Pole." --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars great album, one of Zeppelin's best June 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have all of Led Zeppelin's studio recordings and each has been my favorite at some time or another. Even though it is critized by many and often regarded as one of Zeppelin's weaker albums, Led Zeppelin III to me is actually one of there strongest. These negative reviews come mainly because of the bands accoustic leanings at the time, but that is really not a bad thing, since the albums still has it's fair share of rockers, and some of their best rockers ever, like "The Immigrant Song" and "Out On The Tiles". And not to mention, this album contains one of the best and most powerful tracks ever recorded in "Since I've Been Loving You". This is the true gem on this album. Never has Robert Plant sang with such passion as he did on this track. In fact, it is this album in which I feel Plant shines the most. His voice is in peak performance, and really adds depth to the songs, especially the more accoustic ones. Listen to "Tangerine" for example, and I think you will see what I mean. Overall, this album is essential in any music collection, and is a really enjoyable listen. It rocks out on tracks like "Celebration Day", "The Immigrant Song", and "Out on the Tiles". It has accoustic brilliance on tracks like "Gallows Pole", "Tangerine", and "That's the Way". Truly a Zeppelin masterpiece and a must have for any classic rock fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT EVIDENTLY ALWAYS WAS AND WILL EVER BE June 3 2014
Format:Audio CD
Back in the early 1990s when Jimmy Page made his first personally administered foray into the CD medium on behalf of Led Zeppelin, he claimed in many interviews that the tape vault well was basically dry besides the released LPs as we know them.

An expensive collected work boxset released at the the time contained a few outtake crumbs and B-sides and at least to these ears, overall sound quality that was rather thin, mid-rangy, and treble-high, and at least to me, was a disappointment.

Yet, as if magically when the CD medium is sooner rather than later to be led to pasture, Jimmy finds the tape vault well is pretty darn hydrated after all and now we have all this including a boffo digi-pack reproduction of the original, spacey spinning wheel die-cut LP cover for III!

Because this Deluxe Edition of Led Zeppelin III (as is the case for Deluxe Editions of II and I) have a well chocked separate discs of heretofore (legitimately) unreleased alts and outs and others from the sessions for the album(s) and in the case of Led Zep I, a vintage 1969 concert that puts bootleggers to shame.

And see when a band is this good-even its rejected takes of later released songs are very, very good-well, then, Jimmy can be forgiven for seeming to have a bad memory back in the 90s.

Oh, and this time, the remastering job over-lorded by Mr. Paige is top notch, even if it did take about 30 years to enter the digital realm in such an appealing aural fashion.

I suspect that thrifty price-point of these new Zep reissues will help to drive large sales, and hopefully encourage JP to "find" more of that formerly nonexistent material for super-duper boxset somewhere down the road.

Jimmy, thanks for the memories, and as well as your renewed one.

I can't wait for the next reissues.

Can't get the smile off my face! I just listened to the third album of the new re-issues of the Led Zeppelin albums remastered by Jimmy Page himself! Perhaps it's because the music is so familiar, but to be suddenly confronted by so much more detail, to hear entire musical threads that were previously buried in the mix, and to have so much more dynamic range is exhilarating! These are the finest Led Zeppelin recordings I have ever heard..... Far Out, Man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin III June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation which gives the music extra depth. And even the rockers aren't as straightforward as before: The galloping "Immigrant Song" is powered by Plant's banshee wail, "Celebration Day" turns blues-rock inside out with a warped slide guitar riff, and "Out on the Tiles" lumbers along with a tricky, multi-part riff. Nevertheless, the heart of the album lies on the second side, when the band delve deeply into English folk. "Gallows Pole" updates a traditional tune with a menacing flair, and "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" is an infectious acoustic romp, while "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" are shimmering songs with graceful country flourishes. The band haven't left the blues behind, but the twisted bottleneck blues of "Hats Off To (Roy) Harper" actually outstrips the epic "Since I've Been Loving You," which is the only time Zeppelin sound a bit set in their ways.

The essential linchpin in Led Zeppelin's discography
Led Zeppelin's third album, unimaginatively titled LED ZEPPELIN III, shows the band in a much different light than the preceding two records. The first two records were constructed around hard-hitting, direct music, with a fairly straightforward sound. LED ZEPPELIN showed the band capable of classic dynamics and very textured music, sowing seeds to come. ZEPPELIN II, though, was a very direct sounding record, much more built on the riffs and acid blues of such contemporaries like Cream, Hendrix, and Jeff Beck. This all led to the general opinion that the band had a fairly limited sound, drawing frequent comparisons to Black Sabbath.
LED ZEPPELIN III, however, blew all such stereotypes out of the water. While this record still has a heavy, metallic sound on a couple of tracks, by and large III is largely an accoustic affair, especially on the last half of the album. Even the hard rockers aren't nearly as straight-forward as the ones found on their first two LPs. The second side shows Zeppelin quite masterfully working in a folk-blues tradition, turning in some wonderful music. The band still plays the blues, but these blues are seen through the prism of III's sound. Instead of building the blues on pummeling riffs they instead focus more on an acoustic foundation, giving the record a rich, warm sound. The only real fault here is that they left off the B-Side "Hey Hey What Can I Do," which fits in perfectly with III and would have been a very strong addition to the album. The very last song, which there's nothing wrong with, I don't much care for, but that's just my personal taste.
After ZEPPELIN III, Zeppelin went on to bigger and better things.
