New box sets including unreleased material

Recommended Posts

any mention of the box sets being limited?

First 30,000 are numbered.

so we do get the full olympia show! assuming plantations and stuff and a few bits are trimmed to squeeze into 80 mins, but great to see!

glad to have jenning's farm blues officially, will be cool to see how high quality he has it, assuming it's even better than what's out there right now. I do love that little jam..

any ideas on keys to the highway/trouble with mind? Rollingstone has it as a blues medley?

Genuinely shocked at the full Olympia show! The Plantations were already trimmed...

"Highway/Trouble with Mind" = "Hats Off (to Roy Harper)" outtake.

PRESS RELEASE:

http://www.ledzeppelin.com/news/2014/03/13/first-three-albums-newly-remastered-previously-unreleased-companion-audio

First Three Albums Newly Remastered By Jimmy Page,
Each With An Additional Disc Of Previously Unreleased
Companion Audio

Multiple CD, Vinyl, And Digital Formats,
Including Limited Edition Super Deluxe Boxed Set, Available June 3


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 June 3 release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and 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. Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin,” says Page. “It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time”

Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III will each be available June 3 from Atlantic/Swan Song in the following formats:

· Single CD – Remastered album packaged in a gatefold card wallet.
· Deluxe Edition (2CD) – Remastered album, plus a second disc of unreleased companion audio.
· Single LP – Remastered album on 180-gram vinyl, packaged in a sleeve that replicates the LP’s first pressing in exacting detail. (For example, III will feature the original wheel and die cut holes.)
· Deluxe Edition Vinyl – Remastered album and unreleased companion audio on 180-gram vinyl.
· Digital Download – Remastered album and companion audio will both be available.
· Super Deluxe Boxed Set – This collection includes:
o Remastered album on CD in vinyl replica sleeve.
o Companion audio on CD in card wallet.
o Remastered album on 180-gram vinyl in a sleeve replicating first pressing.
o Companion audio on 180-gram vinyl.
o High-def audio download card of all content at 96kHz/24 bit. (Live tracks are 48kHz/24 bit).
o Hard bound, 70+ page book filled with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
o High quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered.
o Led Zeppelin will also include a replica of the band’s original Atlantic press kit.

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.

The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including an epic 15-minute version of “Dazed And Confused,” as well as “Heartbreaker” and “Moby Dick,” which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.

The band wrote and recorded nearly all of Led Zeppelin II while touring relentlessly to support its debut album. Incredibly, the album was released just seven months after Led Zeppelin in October of 1969. Led Zeppelin II features some of the band’s most beloved tracks including “Ramble On” and “Heartbreaker” as well as “Whole Lotta Love,” considered by many to be one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time. The album is certified diamond by the RIAA with sales of over 12 million copies.

The Led Zeppelin II companion audio gives fans the first peek into the band’s recording sessions, with alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to “Thank You” and “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman),” and the previously unreleased track “La La.”

Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as “Immigrant Song” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum.

The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III’s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band’s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: “Jennings Farm Blues” (an instrumental forerunner of “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp”), “Bathroom Sound” (an instrumental version of “Out On The Tiles”), and their take on the blues classics “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.”

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

First 30,000 are numbered.

Genuinely shocked at the full Olympia show! The Plantations were already trimmed...

The numbered part was only for the original artwork reproduction...but that's sort of the same thing, I suppose.

wouldn't shock me if there's edits in HMMT to squeeze it in......plus we have no indication of how long moby dick was as no one's heard it yet right?

Well I hope I win the lotto tonight so I can afford some of these :-)

I thought my $175 credit on Amazon would be plenty...until the $135 super deluxe sets showed up. Oh well.

so 9 albums in the press release indicates that yes CODA will be making it's way out with the rest of the records.....that one could be interesting as given the material page sort of has free range there to include whatever else he wants from virtually any era of the band.

LA LA and BIOH both appear in listings for 2

Yep, Sam's release confirms BIOH. So "La La" is either an entirely unreleased song...or "Moby Dick" intro/outro. ;)

Does anyone know how much the digital tracks are? The link to iTunes isn't working for me, and the new remasters aren't coming up in the iTunes store either.

I simply can't afford to buy them all at the same time. I'll be buying one album every two weeks, in the mean time I will suffice with the digital tracks.

yeah was gunna say if you read the press release that do refer to La La as an entirely unreleased song, but I could totally see that being essentially a jam around Moby Dick where they go off for a few minutes in the middle and jam and then come back for the outro. Or who knows, something that's never graced our ears.....

i'm guessing it's gunna be three waves then. 9 albums, 3 at a time, with a presumption at least on my end that the next three are out in november for the christmas rush. I'm also going to naively assume that there will be live material for at least 1 of the records in each batch of 3 with physical graffiti possibly being completely bananas just given the breadth of material....

Bit hefty in price if you ask me. Would have been nice if they bundled all 3 in a package.

The inclusion of the HD audio in the super deluxe makes them very desirable....but $135x9? Even $100x9 is hard to swallow, even spaced out over a couple years.

of course the super deluxe version appeals to all the die hard Zep fans. I want the Books, but could live without the L.P.'s. I'll probably just get the deluxe c.d.'s

Just the double CD sets for me, by the time the rest of them are announced if I opted for the LP/CD sets total cost would be almost a (£)grand.

I could but I'm not going to.

I am a die hard Zeppelin fan, so I will be getting the super deluxe edition boxsets. I want the vinyl's, because I will be buying a record player in the near future. I have the Celebration Day CD's and Bluray as well as the Vinyl (which was gifted to me). I also want those books. Dem shiny books are beautiful.

Like I said, I'll buy them one at a time every few weeks, or possibly every few months. The music is what's the most important thing about these releases, it's my inner die-hard Zeppelin heart that is obliging me to buy the super deluxe boxsets! I'm sure there are others that feel this way, and will probably do the same thing. :)

If you look carefully at a photo of booklet for Led Zeppelin II you will see that "La La" is the last song. Moreover you won't see "Bring It On Home".
