The Rain Song Remix (Mix Minus Piano)

Recommended Posts

I might just be biased, seeing that this song along with The Song Remains The Same, is my favorite Zeppelin track, but I think this is my favorite remix so far. Simply beautiful.

The only funny thing is that I think I still hear the piano! But regardless this mix sounds incredible to my ears. Plant's vocals seem to be a bit more centered with a pleasing echo-like effect and Page's gentle strummings have never sounded so lush and tactile.

I would go so far as to say that I think this mix is now my default one when playing this song.

What are your thoughts on this mix? Better than the original? Equally good? Or perhaps you don't agree and think it's worse?

My third favorite Zeppelin song but the piano is still there. I don't know why they titled it the way they did.

The piano is still there, it's just less prominent.

I agree - this is a beautiful alt. version. And paired with the instrumental version of TSRTS, we get a taste of what Page had originally planned.

I am really digging the Houses of the Holy bonus disc for this reason - it's a great listen as an album unto itself.

I had mentioned the 'minus' piano issue as well when I started my topic as to this mix's early digital release back in September.

Yes - piano is slightly less prominent - but obviously still there.

I think the vocal mix is far better than the original, insofar as being louder and more prominent. The guitar mix is definitely different, especially at the song's close - but I really love that the mellotron levels are raised - especially during the 'It is the summer of my smiles' verse.

Anyone notice the working title for the song in the Super Deluxe edition's book??? And no - 'Slush' wasn't indicated...
