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

There has been considerable buzz in the rock music world ever since Jimmy Page, the brilliantly gifted architect of the Led Zeppelin sound since it was unleashed forty-five 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. Since 2014 is the forty-fifth anniversary of both Led Zeppelin I and II, the timing is perfect to explore those along with the transitional, often under-appreciated Led Zeppelin III which together comprise 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
