After a two-year hiatus, Led Zeppelin returned in 1975 with one of rock's greatest double albums, a sprawling work akin to Exile on Main Street in its loose, offhand brilliance. Includes Trampled Under Foot; Houses of the Holy; Kashmir; Down by the Seaside; Black Country Woman; In My Time of Dying , and more.
This 1975 release came smack in the middle of a long and nearly mythic career. Physical Graffiti is the last great Led Zeppelin title, recorded before the influences of the day (synthesizers, disco) ended Zeppelin's reign as the kings of loud and sexy blues-metal. Playfully experimenting with new sounds, the band blended Middle Eastern rhythms, folk-stylings, heavy blues, and deeply impassioned rock riffs into a two-disc set that sounded as if they were still enjoying their place in the rock pantheon. As sprawling and adventurous as this collection is, there are some tracks so tightly focused--so ultra-Zeppelinesque--that it's tempting to name this as a number one or number two must-have. "Trampled Underfoot" and "Custard Pie" alone are almost worth the double-disc price tag. --Lorry Fleming

Physical Graffiti has always been my favourite Zeppelin album. I am so glad I bought this 3 CD package as the music contained is a revelation. Its even better than I could possibly hope for. The bonus CD is also very good. It shows songs in development and mixes that are different etc. Its like the icing on the cake.

Anyone of the original album CD's could have been released as a multi million seller single album. This was Led Zeppelin at its creative and performing peak. It just doesn't get any better than this album.
My vocabulary is not that great, but I am sure that some of the best reviewer on amazon will go deep as why you should get those album. Let me say, I am not a high teck kind of guy, I love what I listen or I got screw, right? this is so good, you put it on and you can tell that you are in for the best ride of your life, when you listen to it a second time, you do notice the difference that make this a great record. and for the people that say, well, I don't have that great of a sound system, what is the point right? I have in my bed room a 350 dollars doc station with a cd player right? so it is not a big time sound system right and let me say that even with that you know the difference, and in my living room, you know the five speaker and sub woffer, and god, you are on cloud nine, so it don't matter what you have, if you like the band it is a must get. my only bitching if you will is that myself, I am not a fan of those bonus track, if it was not good enough to put on the first time , I don't understand the trip of listening to that stuff, but that is just my opiniun. specially the so call back track, the music without the singer.Read more ›
The 2015 remastered PHYSICAL GRAFFITI is in my opinion , the best sounding version of this album on regular CDS.
P.G. is a little louder , much clearer and cleaner than before. It could be the best sounding of all of the LED ZEPPELIN remasters , so far.
While the other remasters are also excellent sounding this 2015 remaster seems to take this new remastering process to the next level.
In the opening song called "Custard Pie" PLANT'S voice is no longer lost in the mix. LED ZEP , were experimenting with Plant and other band members recording some of their song part's in the studio's hall way to create special sound effects. In the older versions PLANT'S voice seemed way too far away and in this case it didn't work so well. The beginning of "The Rover" also sounds vastly better.
The song called "Night Flights" is now at the same volume level as all of the other songs. "KASHMIR" , will blow your head off among other things. Other examples of vastly improved sound in this album's songs are "In The Light" , "Sick Again" and "Trampled Under Foot"
In the "The Wanton Song' " the guitar's sound just incredible , etc...etc...
This 2015 remaster fixes it all. The songs sound full , warm and alive not flat and tinny as before.
What really shines on this album are the drums. You hear every note. All the instruments are now in perfect balance with each other. If you own the Japanese SHM-CDS these remasters are louder than those ones but sound just as great.
They are not as loud as the , MOTHERSHIP CDS.
Again , as with the other LED ZEP remasters they are far , far better sounding than the old 1993 / 1994 remasters. FAR BETTER!!!
PAGE used the same remastering process as BOB LUDWIG used for the BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Album Collection Box Set Volume 1 and for , THE TRAGICALLY HIP'S "Fully Completely" CD remaster.

This being one of my all-time favorites, I had to see what JP had done to it. I personally like the results. Read morePublished 2 months ago by PETER SEMEC
The LPs quality is way below the expectations physically and sonically, and definitely below the advertised "remastered" quality. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jayhawk
