The acknowledged classic in their catalog, "Zoso" is also the album in which Robert Plant's mystical concerns took center stage on The Battle of Evermore; Stairway to Heaven , and the lighthearted Misty Mountain Hop . But Stairway aside, the album's real highlight is the downright scary When the Levee Breaks ; blues-rock never got better than this. From 1971.
Also known as the "rune" album because of the medieval symbols adorning its cover, Led Zeppelin's fourth album, released in 1971, turned them from mere superstars into giant behemoths of the rock world. On tracks like "Black Dog", "Misty Mountain Hop", and "Rock and Roll", the combination of Robert Plant's banshee wails and Jimmy Page's frenetic guitar playing forever altered the stylistic bent of hard rock music. And the foreboding "When the Levee Breaks" demonstrated that Zeppelin could indeed play the blues fairly straight if they so desired. Still, everything here ultimately took a back seat to the album's (and, ultimately, the band's) magnum opus--the expertly constructed and deftly executed classic, "Stairway to Heaven". --Billy Altman

The re mastering is superb. Everything in the background is made clearer and I literally hear things in the tracks that I have never heard before.....and I have listened to this music a lot!
The bonus tracks are the icing on the cake for the Zep fan. Though there is nothing new...as in new songs....its great to hear alternate mixes and different versions of songs we all know so well.
I can not wait for the next spate of releases with Physical Graffiti being my all time favourite Zep album the anticipation of that release gets my body tingling.
Great job JP.

Led Zeppelin Deluxe Edition LP (3 LP set)
Zepp classic, must own this one- great remastering work by Jimmy Page et. al The outtakes or non-released tracks are also great. Although these are not all analogue releases, the mastering is uniformly excellent and there are improvements worth noting. Forget about that. This is zeppelins CODA to the blues before they went to rock on with Zepp II
Led Zeppelin IV ZOSO Deluxe Edition LP ZOZO rides again- (2 LP set) Zepp IV gets remastered again by Jimmy Page
Great record, no doubting that. This remaster is very good and better than the original mastering in some ways. It's not all analogue from tape playback through mixer to cutting lathe, however it improves on Plant's vocals detail, adds a bit of air between instrume cost itself. The acoustic tracks like Going To California and Battle Of Evermore sound great as do the instrumental outtake versions on the 2nd LP.
Houses Of The Holy Deluxe Edition LP (2 LP Set)
I always loved this particular Zepp album. Aside from Physical Grafitti and Zepp II, my fav Zep album. This is an improvement over the original in many ways and the 2nd LP outtakes are great. Any Zepp fan must own this one.
I Purchased these (Super Deluxe Edition Box Sets) for the 70 page hardcover book that comes with the package(s)
and the bonus tracks on the companion disc.
I suspect the Super Deluxe Edition Box Sets are for hardcore Zep fans and collectors, as long time Zep fans would already
own the vinyl, the tapes, the CD'S and/or box sets that have been released over the years since 1969.
The photos in the book aren't the best Zeppelin photos... they seem to be from personal collections.
And there are also articles and reviews from the time period of the release of that album as well as scanned copies of contracts
for live appearances and studio time and inter "office" memos.
For the new or casual fan or one who goes to a concert disappointed because it didn't sound like the album,
I would suggest the single disc Remastered Original CD.
If you would like alternate tracks as well then purchase the Deluxe Edition CD.
Absolutely sonically amazing
Throw out your old vers - including that precious vinyl - this is the new benchmark.
Crisp - sharp - cowbells! - excellent imaging - you will be lost in the time and place.
Do it - do it now - buy it - you know you need yet another copy - it will be your best copy.
The drums... ohhhhh the drums!
Crank it up - teach the kids what rock & roll was once like.
Except...here's my issues...and I did return it (amazon...thank you thank you thank you for having a great return policy!). The entire side one was plagued with clicks and pops (like every 3 seconds). I did all the due diligence for cleaning it etc.. but the 2nd side was crystal clear in comparison. Also, my copy had a warp in it...it's 180g and expensive. Unforgivable. Here's where things get slightly complicated.
After playing my new copy of HOTH...you can probably find my review of it as well...and finding something wrong with it as well (I mean c'mon guys the first three albums were spotless) I ended up looking for the other pressing from Europe (I found some threads online about them). It's on the way right now (also purchased through Amazon...you guys rock!). I'll let you know how it turns out.
**Update: European pressing flawless...4.5 out of 5 now. As I said, the extra material isn't for everyone.
