Led Zeppelin I-II-III- Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones

There was considerable buzz in the rock music world when Jimmy Page, the brilliantly gifted architect of the Led Zeppelin sound since it was unleashed nearly fifty years ago, announced that he was personally overseeing a comprehensive updating of the entire Led Zeppelin catalog as deluxe editions with remastered sound, new twenty-first century artwork and graphics, previously unreleased demos, alternate mixes, and those notoriously bootlegged live Led Zeppelin concert performances.  Both Led Zeppelin I   and II   came out in 1969 barely ten months apart,  explore those along with the transitional, often under-appreciated Led Zeppelin III   which together comprised the initial deluxe reissues. To explore each, we arranged for Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones to go “under the hood” to reveal the thoughtful approach to the Led Zeppelin sound, echoes of which are apparent to this very day.- Redbeard
