Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IV: Deluxe Edition on 2CD
Original Album Newly Remastered by Jimmy Page Plus Bonus Second Disc of Unreleased Companion Audio
John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant came together in 1968 as Led Zeppelin. Over the next decade, the band would become one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, selling more than 300 million albums worldwide. Their songs are some of the most celebrated in rock 'n' roll history that, to this day, resonate with fans young and old around the globe. Still, no matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you've never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.
As with the previous deluxe editions, Led Zeppelin IV has been newly remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and is accompanied by a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album. Page spent years on this project with one goal in mind: Making these Led Zeppelin reissues the end-all-be-all definitive editions of his iconic band's records. He has succeeded, and then some.
The companion audio for Led Zeppelin IV gives fans the first peek into the band's recording sessions, with different mixes of every song on the album, not the least of which is "Black Dog" with guitar overdubs, a mandolin/guitar mix of "Going to California," and an alternate mix of "Rock and Roll." Nobody outside of Led Zeppelin's inner circle has ever heard these until now.
Released in November 1971, the album (which is officially untitled) defined the sound of rock music for a generation with ubiquitous anthems such as "Stairway To Heaven," "Rock And Roll," "Black Dog," and "When The Levee Breaks." The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999 and has been certified 23x platinum by the RIAA. It's arguably the most popular and widely known album in rock history.
