LED ZEPPELIN - THE COMPLETE A 44 LP 200 GRAM 45 SPEED LP BOXSET (WEIGHS 45 POUNDS ALONE & is now out of print/gone from all dealers) Wow! Now, this is a box set! & now out of print/last box set The Led Zeppelin 45-RPM Box Set consists of 44 single-sided 12-inch records housed in a special Classic Road Case. The titles include Led Zeppelin I, II, III, IV, Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti, Presence, In Through the Out Door, The Song Remains The Same and Coda with each spread out over either four or eight sides depending on whether the original LP was a single or double. These 45-RPM sides were cut at the same time as the 33-RPM discs and as such DO NOT represent a remastering that is different from the 33-RPM LPs approved by the band. Further, there is no additional artwork or extra recorded material of any kind. Each title has an art jacket that is the same as used on the 33-RPM releases with the additional 45s in white jackets. Original label art by title is the same as used on the 33-RPM releases as well. All records are pressed on Classic's proprietary 200-gram Super Vinyl Profile. So, why buy the 45s? Well, besides the ultra-cool box, 45 reveals all the nuances that are impossible to retrieve at 33. Think of the lathe as it is cutting a lacquer. The cutter head doesn't know what speed the platter is spinning as the cutter blindly moves up and down, back and forth carving the grooves. The difference is that at 45 RPM, the same signal is imprinted over a longer distance and hence the "stretched" out groove is easier for a cartridge to traverse which allows the cartridge to give a better read on what is carved. The sonic difference is quite remarkable. Rest assured, you have never heard "Stairway to Heaven" until you've heard it at 45 RPM. This is as close to the master tape as we are able to get with an LP. This set weighs approximately 45 lbs. All These Limited Edition Audiophile Mastered LP's (from the Original Session Tapes) were mastered by both Jimmy Page and the guru technician, Bernie Grundman.
