"Led Zeppelin, 4 OBI Set - Physical Graffiti, Houses of the Holy, Coda, In Thru the Outdoor - Japanese LP Replica in a CD"

LED ZEPPELIN - PHYSICAL GRAFFITI - HOUSES OF THE HOLY - CODA - IN THRU THE OUTDOOR - (with brown bag slipcase) - PRESENCE - THESE ARE ALL THE ORIGINAL JAPANESE 1ST EDITION RELEASES This is a Japanese digitally re-mastered Mini LP replica Limited Edition Collection with OBI sash down the front - only 2,000 Collector pieces made world-wide and are immediately Out of Print. Recorded from the finest Original Masters available. Comes with anti-static sleeves similar to Vinyl LPs, Cardboard packaging like an LP. Actual miniaturized version of the 12" LP in 4" CD version. PHYSICAL GRAFFITI is the band's Holy Grail. Always cited as Robert Plant's favorite (with his all-time favorite "Cashmir"), the band ushers in the second half of the seventies with creative subtlety and flair. PHYSICAL GRAFFITI is the last great Zeppelin title recorded before the influences of the day (synthesizers, disco) ended Zeppelin's reign as Kings of loud and sexy blues- metal. Playfully experimenting with new sounds, the band blended Middle Eastern themes, folk-stylings, heavy blues, and deeply impassioned rock riffs into a double LP set that sounds as if they were still enjoying their place in the rock pantheon. As swirling and adventurous as this collection is, there are some tracks so tightly fused - so ultra-Zeppelinesque--that it is tempting to name this as a #1 or #2 must have. "Trample Underfoot" and "Custard Pie" alone are almost worth the double LP price tag. Don't get it wrong, this album rocks but with more texture and cohesion. Page, Plant, Jones and Bonham have never sounded so together as a complete whole. This is their defining masterpiece. Here Classic Records delivers this album the way it should always be heard - in all its pure analogue glory. This Limited Edition Pressing of this Double LP will blow you away. Track Listings 1.

Sick Again HOUSES OF THE HOLY - After the album Led Zeppelin IV surprisingly became one of the most lauded and biggest-selling albums in rock history, the group faced a challenge head-on and created a compelling follow up. Released in May of 1973, Houses of the Holy is perhaps their most accessible, commerical yet ambitious title. Maturing from the blues quartet that had catapulted them onto the scene, producer/guitarist Jimmy Page really started expanding his studio skills and vision after Led Zep II. Here, on their fifth album, each member takes a turn shining. They complimented each other perfectly and could still rock with the best of them: even their acoustic songs could rock! Each song is an adventure: folk, middle-Eastern, blues, there's even a hint of R&B/soul here and there. All in all, this is an exceptional collection. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1. The Song Remains The Same 2. The Rain Song 3. Over the Hills and Far Away 4. The Crunge 5. Dancing Days 6. D'yer Mak'er 7. No Quarter 8. The Ocean PRESENCE - It's taken a while, but this 1976 release has earned its place with the other great titles from the biggest rock band of that decade. Languishing for years in the intimidating strength of its predecessor (Physical Graffiti) Presence was quickly recorded and issued, mainly while vocalist Robert Plant sported a cast on his leg from a car accident. It's heavy on the rock side featuring high octane guitar from Jimmy Page and no acoustic guitars or keyboards to be found. John Bonham's thunderous bashing and layers of guitar are highlighted in "Achilles Last Stand" while "Nobody's Fault But Mine," a reworking of a blues tune by Blind Willie Johnson gets goosed in the rear Zep-style by Page & Co. Other highlights include "For Your Life," "Royal Orleans," "Candy Store Rock,", "Hots On For Nowhere" and "Tea Is For One". -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1.

Im Gonna Crawl Re-mastered reissue of 1979 album, packaged with original album artwork including brown bag slipcover. 7 tracks. Warner. 2003. Though the band likely didn't know it at the time, this would prove to be the last studio record by one of the most famous rock & roll bands in the world. Drummer John Bonham died shortly after its release. Although nothing compares to early Led Zeppelin--and they lost many longtime fans in the late 1970s--this LP is nothing to be embarrassed by. They were quick to embrace and experiment with synthesizers, (the synth-bloated "Carouselambra" and the slick AOR hit "All My Love"), adds a certain majestic tone to the heavy-hitting opener, "In the Evening," and gives a rollicking good-time feel to "South Bound Suarez." Plant's howl and Page's bluesy guitars are in fine form on "I'm Gonna Crawl" and the lilting "Fool in the Rain" recalls the pretty numbers from their early career CODA - A collection assembled after John Bonham's death, Coda includes the ringing folk stomp of "Poor Tom," the jacked-up '50s rock & roll of "Ozone Baby" and their response to punk rock, the savage "Wearing and Tearing." There is some stellar playing, especially on the early blues-rock blitzkrieg "I Can't Quit You Baby" and "We're Gonna Groove." This authentic Classic reissue rounds out the complete Led Zeppelin catalog. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings Side One 1. We're Gonna Groove 2. Poor Tom 3. I Can't Quit You Baby 4. Walter's Walk Side Two 1. Ozone Baby 2. Darlene 3. Bonzo's Montreaux 4. Wearing And Tearing
