John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant came together in 1968 as Led Zeppelin. Over the next decade, the band would become one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, selling more than 300 million albums worldwide. Their songs are some of the most celebrated in rock n roll history that, to this day, resonate with fans young and old around the globe. Still, no matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you ve never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.
With the 2014 release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, & Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page.
The Led Zeppelin legend began in January of 1969 with the group s eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of "Good Times Bad Times, " on through to "Babe I m Gonna Leave You, " "Communication Breakdown, " and "Dazed And Confused, " the album introduced the band s unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape. Led Zeppelin has been certified diamond by the RIAA for sales over 10 million and was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2004.
Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham took the stage at London s O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album.
As it turned out, Led Zeppelin's infamous 1969 debut album was indicative of the decade to come--one that, fittingly, this band helped define with its decadently exaggerated, bowdlerized blues-rock. In shrieker Robert Plant, ex-Yardbird Jimmy Page found a vocalist who could match his guitar pyrotechnics, and the band pounded out its music with swaggering ferocity and Richter-scale-worthy volume. Pumping up blues classics such as Otis Rush's "I Can't Quit You Baby" and Howlin' Wolf's "How Many More Times" into near-cartoon parodies, the band also hinted at things to come with the manic "Communication Breakdown" and the lumbering set stopper "Dazed and Confused". --Billy Altman --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

This CD has some of my other favorite Led Zeppelin songs (every CD holds about 5 for me..), such as Good Times Bad Times, where the Pagemaster roars out his riffs in perfect tune and John Bonham bangs away at those bass drums.
Another favorite off this album is Communication Breakdown. This may of been the very first song I heard by Zepp (either that or Stairway to Heaven, though it probably was Communication Breakdown). This song has so much energy inside it. Every time I listen to it, it makes me wanna headbang.
But, out of every song on the album (and there's not a huge amount either....), my favorite song would have to be Dazed and Confused. I first heard this song at my friends house. I then heard it again on a movie I saw. The song became attached to me.I think the lyrics are very cool and Jimmy Page does a wonderful guitar (again) on the guitar.
The people that give this album 5 stars are absolutely correct. Anyone who gives less doesn't appriciate Zepp for their true music talents.
On a reproduction I look for improved sound quality, for the ability to turn it up and enjoy superior clarity and fullness of the highs, mid-range and the lows. I want it to sound wicked on the advanced equipment of today . . . Hear the subs pound, and still get the crisp reality of a cymbal, as well as making out the lyrics as if he was talking to you in a quiet room!
Good buy I guess, if you are wanting to listen to the original vinyl release. And it will never get scratched!!
