  2. This coming Record Store Day, April 21, Led Zeppelin will release a limited edition 7” single featuring 2 previously unheard mixes produced by Jimmy Page: the “Sunset Sound Mix” of “Rock And Roll” and the “Olympic Studios Mix” of “Friends.” The previously unreleased version of “Rock And Roll” provides an additional peek into the fabled “Sunset Sound Mixes” of Led Zeppelin IV. Only two previous “Sunset Sound Mixes” have been released, the first being the version of “When The Levee Breaks” on the original album and the second the “Stairway To Heaven” mix that debuted on the 2014 deluxe edition. The previously unheard “Olympic Studios Mix” of “Friends” is a stripped-down version, without the orchestration of the final mix, offering a true fly-on-the-wall feel from the band’s recording sessions for Led Zeppelin III at Headley Grange. The single will be available as part of Record Store Day, exclusively from independent music retailers, on April 21 2018.
  3. For those collecting, in addition to the store display box, there's also an advanced promo version - stamped in gold: "Sample Record, Not For Sale".

  9. Here are some never-before-seen fan photos from Led Zeppelin's legendary Carnegie Hall (October 17, 1969) appearance. A group of 15 year-old fans captured their experience at the 8:30pm (early show) from the 10th row. They describe a lack of security, except for Carnegie Hall ushers and were free to venture up to the front of the stage for a few pics as well. Amazingly, these photos also reveal Jimmy Page's first photographed live use of his Black Beauty Les Paul during Led Zeppelin and confirms it was brought to North America for this fall 1969 tour. http://www.ledzeppelin.com/show/october-17-1969

Then billed as “The New Yardbirds,” the band would assemble in the studio for the first time later that month to start recording their debut album as Led Zeppelin, and rock ‘n’ roll would never be the same again. Before the band’s 50th Anniversary celebration officially begins in September, Led Zeppelin will continue their reissue campaign with a new edition of their celebrated live album HOW THE WEST WAS WON, originally released in 2003, featuring newly remastered audio, which was done under the supervision of Jimmy Page. Details of additional Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary releases and events will be announced later this year.

Originally released in 2003, HOW THE WEST WAS WON highlights the best performances from Led Zeppelin’s legendary concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972. Melded together and sequenced to replicate a single concert from beginning to end, the three-CD and four-LP collections capture the band at the height of its formidable powers. Standouts include a 25-plus minute version of “Dazed And Confused” and a 21-minute medley based around “Whole Lotta Love.” The performances also capture the band introducing songs from its then-unreleased album Houses Of The Holy, which would be released nine months later. ### http://www.ledzeppelin.com/news/live-album-how-west-was-won-be-reissued-new-remastering-supervised-jimmy-page-1261051

  14. 'It's so dull': Legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant SLAMS modern rock and roll as 'boring' and remains tight-lipped about the band's debauchery By Stephen Bisset For Daily Mail Australia http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5553253/Led-Zeppelin-frontman-Robert-Plant-SLAMS-modern-rock-roll-boring.html He's the frontman for iconic British rock band Led Zeppelin. And Robert Plant, 69, has revealed that he finds the state of modern rock and roll 'dull.' Appearing on The Project on Wednesday, The Stairway To Heaven hit maker bemoaned the state of modern music, saying it was too sanitised. At the height of Led Zeppelin's fame in the mid 1970s, the band epitomised the hard-living rock and roll lifestyle, becoming one of the first bands to popularise such tropes as groupies and trashed hotel rooms. 'All of that stuff came from what happens when there's no real control, you know?,' Robert told guest interviewer Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald. He added: 'The organisation that follows an artist these days is almost, it's so dull.' Stage managed: 'The organisation that follows an artist these days is almost, it's so dull,' Robert told guest interviewer Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald Stage managed: 'The organisation that follows an artist these days is almost, it's so dull,' Robert told guest interviewer Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald Robert went on to admit that he didn't have too many wild stories of the road to recount as he was unsure which tales belonged to him. 'I can't tell you anything really because, not because I've got a book coming out, but because i don't know whether I'm remembering what happened to me or what happened to somebody else - we just talked about it so much.' When pressed on if he was writing a tell-all, Robert was adamant pen would not be touching paper as what happened on tour needed to stay on tour. 'In-between these lug holes there are so many humorous stories but they have got to stay with me,' Robert said. Perhaps best known for the magnum opus Stairway To Heaven, Robert also admitted that he had always struggled with the lyrics of the long-winded epic. 'I know it's a long song and I also know that I have a little bit of trouble remembering they lyrics,' he said. 'Our manager, who was quite a formidable personality...he'd come to the front of the stage in the middle of it all and he's have the lyrics. It's funny because I can't remember what verse goes where.' Forming in 1968, Led Zeppelin, also featuring Jimmy Page, John Bonham and John Paul Jones became one of the biggest bands of the 1970s with their mammoth sound cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal. The band called it quits in 1980 after the tragic death of drummer John Bonham.

  20. Robert Plant review: Whole lotta love in the room for rock veteran Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters State Theatre, ‪March 23 ★★★★ In the year that marks not only his own 70th on the planet but half a century since the formation of the band that made him a rock icon, Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant remains a formidable singer and a vital musician. It can all be boiled down to rhythm and blues – the separate entities, not the genre – when it comes to the sound and feel of Plant and a band that's crucially far more than a group of guns hired to back him on tour. The core Sensational Space Shifters have written and played with him in various guises for more than a decade, and the thrill they get vibing off each other is evident from the moment they lock into opener New World. It's one of several tunes we hear from last year's Carry Fire and, along with the others from Plant's "solo" career, they do significantly more than pass the time while we wait in hope for the occasional Led Zep treat. Whether it's the hypnotic Rainbow with its Moroccan hand drums or the warm country-folk of his celebrated collaboration with (the absent) Alison Krauss, Please Read the Letter, it all comes back to the groove, and invariably a blissful one at that. Even when we get the first call back to the great old days with a gorgeous and at first musically faithful That's the Way, by its end that acoustic rock meditation too finds a shimmy we never knew it had. Of the other Led Zeppelin songs, at least two come wonderfully out of the blue as folk stompers taken back to their roots before we get the thrill of recognising them (notably Misty Mountain Hop) while the rest provide the instant joy of familiarity; an enormous, iconic guitar riff doesn't hurt, either (Whole Lotta Love). Plant is inevitably not the dynamic, thrusting frontman of yore, and the rock screech may no longer be in his vocal toolbox but, given his age, that's as it should be. Instead, he comes across as the dignified, eccentric, golden-voiced mystic he has long aspired to be, and it's a pleasure to spend a couple of hours with him and his band. Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters play at the Opera House Concert Hall on March 26 and 27, the Palais Theatre, Melbourne, on April 1 and 2, and at Bluesfest, which takes place in Byron Bay from March 29-April 2. https://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/robert-plant-review-whole-lotta-love-in-the-room-for-rock-veteran-20180325-h0xxb3.html
  21. Robert Plant is showing Australia what it truly means to be a legendary frontman by Brandon John | Mar 26, 2018 Robert Plant’s message to fans several days back gives all the insight we need into the mind of a man whose worshipped back-catalogue of hits could easily become an albatross around his neck: “Man’s real home is not a house, but the road, and that life itself is a journey to be walked on foot.” A quote from writer and countryman Bruce Chatwin, it sums up the feelings he’s expressed to every interviewer who, for almost four decades, has been compelled to ask the ‘reunion’ question: Plant has no interest in stoking the embers of a lifetime ago, instead carrying his fire as he keeps pressing forward. He hasn’t forgotten the past, he just won’t be chained to it – a sentiment that carries right through his live show. With a stick of incense burning away in his stage monitor, his promise to Sydney’s State Theatre of a glimpse into the “past and present” is certainly delivered on by a smattering of solo work to open the set, and our first gentle nudge into Led Zeppelin territory comes five songs deep in the form of acoustic number ‘That’s The Way’. The ‘past’ is best served, though, by the folk and blues standards that have always been a part of Plant’s catalogue, and which prove a perfect fit for a Sensational Space Shifters lineup driven along by the guitar brilliance of Justin Adams and Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson, and bolstered by the violin skills of well-received opening act Seth Lakeman. Adams’ sitar-esque guitar soon signals newest title track ‘Carry Fire’, and sees the stage steeped in projections of appropriately mystical imagery, the smoke from the incense rising. Next we’re met with a true Zeppelin mainstay in ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You’, and it’s here that Plant puts to rest any concerns that he may have lost a step since he first sent shivers down spines with one of the greatest voices in rock. The quality of his vocals still shines through, bolstered as it is by a choir of reverb when stretched by the demands of certain higher, longer notes. And, while he may no longer be the banshee he was in his youth, he’s no faded talent. His voice has walked a long road, but continues to find itself right at home there. It was perhaps most at home, of course, on the version of ‘Please Read The Letter’ that followed – a cut from his Jimmy Page collab album in 1998 reworked a decade later for the Grammy-accumulating collab record with Alison Krauss that would cement Plant as an enduring songwriting force – and it proved a crowd-pleaser for fans who’d followed all the way along on that journey. The remainder of the set brought with it a perfectly-weighted combination of covers and Zeppelin classics that saw Plant at times watching ‘Skin’ Tyson with quiet reverence as the guitarist put his incredible abilities on display, and at others consoling a platinum blonde fan who’d been rebuffed by security as she attempted to work her way to front of stage: “Sorry, love”. Some things never change, others clearly do. The countrified version of ‘Misty Mountain Hop’ that closed out the set didn’t thrill the way it could have, but the medley that followed the encore more than made up for it, with the classic pairing of ’69 cover ‘Bring It On Home’ and the still-monstrous ‘Whole Lotta Love’ bringing the crowd to their feet. “Here’s one of our newer songs, from 1920,” Plant joked, as he transitioned back into another of the traditional folk songs that he’d brought back to life throughout the evening. “Sit down, you won’t like it.” But as the genuinely sensational musicianship of the Space Shifters saw ‘Whole Lotta Love’ return with a fury, those who’d followed his instructions were jolted back out of their seats. It was a brilliant show, but watching Robert Plant and his expert band can’t help but bring about a sense of pity for singers left adrift from the bands with which they first launched themselves to stardom all those years back, now left belting out those same versions of those same hits, over and over. “Play ‘Stairway’,” as the saying goes. It’s a fate that Plant never has to fear, though, as each night he picks and chooses his way through a glittering career as he sees fit, just as content to put his fresh stamp an old standard as he is one of his own hits. Rather than resting on his laurels in the house that Zeppelin built, Plant again reminds us that his real home is not a house, but the road. Robert Plant will continue his Australian tour in Melbourne, Adeliade and Perth next week, following an appearance at Bluesfest 2018 this weekend – limited tickets are still available. https://tonedeaf.com.au/robert-plant-is-showing-australia-how-to-be-a-legendary-frontman/
  22. Led Zeppelin founder Jimmy Page returns to Seattle site where band played in 1969 SEATTLE: Jimmy Page, the guitarist and founder of rock band Led Zeppelin, was spotted at Seattle’s Green Lake this weekend, where Led Zeppelin played nearly 50 years ago. The Guitar Store near Green Lake posted a photo Sunday of Page at the remains of the Aqua Theatre, which was constructed in 1950 as part of Seafair and demolished in 1979. Only part of the grandstand remains, and the site is now home to the Green Lake Small Craft Center. “Perhaps he is on an archeological journey in search for proof of a pre condo boom Seattle,” Guitar Store staff wrote in the Facebook post. “The last time people saw him here it was 1969 before most of us were born. Keep Rocking Mr. Page!” https://www.ajc.com/news/national/led-zeppelin-founder-jimmy-page-returns-seattle-site-where-band-played-1969/69uVAcULD9iJpwZ8u37JdM/
