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 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.

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.

For a mix of classic hard rock and blues riffs (the first half of this album), balanced with some lovely acoustic rock (the second half), this collection is unique, and my favourite, in Led Zeppelin's catalogue. Great songs and a sound that's only improving with age. I only wish the III CD cover (or mp3s) gave you a fun album cover (like the vinyl did) to spin 'round.

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 Superb remaster July 30 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This remaster is, in my opinion, the best digital version available. There is a clarity and level of detail that I've never heard before, giving new life to this old classic. Likewise the bonus disk sounds fantastic and has some terrific material that Led Zep fans need to have in their collection. Highly recommended!
