Not seen these awesome albums at this fantastic price for an eternity

Rising from the ashes of his old band the Yardbirds, session guitarist Jimmy Page formed Led Zeppelin, one of the most powerful, influential, and enduring British bands to emerge in the '60s. Despite the presence of such classic thrash-o-ramas as "Good Times Bad Times" and "Communication Breakdown", what set Led Zeppelin apart was the depth and range of their music. Their sound was bathed in the blues, from rootsy covers of Willie Dixon's "You Shook Me" and "I Can't Quit You Baby", to the crunching rhythm changes of "Dazed And Confused".
Few guitarists before or since possessed Page's sense of pacing and dynamics, as exemplified by the traditional acoustic folk elements framing the arena gestures on "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You", and the raga-flavoured acoustic mystery of "Black Mountain Side". These elements would continue to evolve on subsequent albums, leading to some of Led Zeppelin's greatest moments.

II (Remastered)
http://images.play.com/covers/168993m.jpg
From the first grinding notes of the famous vamp that introduces "Whole Lotta Love", LED ZEPPELIN II announces for all to hear that they are the definitive hard rock band of their generation. But before the listener can even settle into the groove, things takes a hard left turn into a spacey new rhythm, exotically flavoured by Page's droning feedback and innovative use of a violin bow. By tune's end, Zeppelin has repeatedly toyed with the listener's expectations.
This subversive quality distinguishes most of the arrangements on LED ZEPPELIN II, as in the soft/hard dynamic shifts of "What Is And What Should Never Be", the gospelish mood of "Thank You", the rocking vamps and funk rhythms of "Heartbreaker" and "Living Loving Maid", and the country music echoes of "Ramble On". And in their appropriations of source materials from Howlin' Wolf, Robert Johnson, and Sonny Boy Williamson, Page and company continued to mine the rich vein of the blues.

III (Remastered)

LED ZEPPELIN III is the sound of rock's brash enfants terrible beginning to mature. While the take-no-prisoners blues-rock of the first two albums is still prominent in the band's tool box, other implements are beginning to appear. The delicate acoustic whispers that would run through much of ZEPPELIN IV have their folk/blues antecedents here (the lambent "That's the Way", the earthy "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp"), the results of the band's creative encampment in a woodland dwelling. At the same time, the heavier tracks are unprecedented in their ferocious swagger. Robert Plant's bone-chilling battle cry and the band's savage riffing on "The Immigrant Song" do full justice to the song's Viking imagery, and it's easy to believe that the "hammer of the gods" Plant sings about is being swung straight in your direction.

Led Zeppelin's epochal fourth album finds both the band's blues-rock thunder and their gentler, more lyrical side filed down to a razor-sharp point. "Black Dog" and "Rock and Roll" aren't just perennial air-guitar anthems
they're the ultimate distillation of the blues-inflected, hard-rock fury the band had already been perfecting for the past three years. Robert Plant's Little Richard-on-amphetamines wail rides perfectly atop the band's strategically directed crunch for maximum impact. "When the Levee Breaks"is a titanic take on the blues, with John Bonham's thunderous drums echoing through the subsequent decades. The folkier, acoustic tracks provide welcome moments of beauty and respite, and all the elements of the band's sound come together in "Stairway to Heaven", a suite of shifting dynamics that would become the Eiffel Tower of classic-rock radio forevermore.

Probably my fav band of all time.I must resist the urge to buy.



mine to JP, I got every album already ( on vinyl ) :thumbsup:

heat thanks Andy - but like JP said must resist :-D

No band has ever come close to the excellence of the mighty Zep. I often wish I had never heard them so I could rediscover all their albums again!

If you haven't got these then buy them, you will not be disappointed..

:thumbsup:

I know next to nothing about LZ but I do have the Greatest Hits and like that. But is the Main Picture meant to look like an Erect Male Member with Pudenda above it?

I tried hard but I never really liked LZ. However for anyone into rock and blues then these are very good albums. If you like one of them then you'll get all 4. And if you've never heard it before then at least listen to Stairway to Heaven.......a classic that modern makes most modern music sound shallow.

nice one. needed I and III.

It's their less well known songs that make them such a great band, Stairway can sound a bit stale as good as it is, then you hear a live version that makes your hair stand on end it's so good. I'd suggest Zep II as a way to get into them, varied and it rocks too. Best ofs tend to make them sound a bit samey but when they play something that they progressed to it sounds a bit out of place. These four albums are great deals but also the best way to listen to them.
