Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy: Super Deluxe Edition on 180g Vinyl 2LP + 2CD Box Set
The Ultimate Houses of the Holy: Super Deluxe Edition Led Zeppelin Box Set Includes Remastered Album, Companion Audio, Hardbound 80-Page Book, High-Quality Print, High-Def Download
Led Zeppelin reissues don't come any better than this Super Deluxe Edition box set of Houses of the Holy,
which contains both the 180g LP and CD of the remastered album, the previously unreleased companion audio on 180g LP and CD, a hardbound album-sized 80-page book with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia, a high-quality print of the original album cover, and a high-def audio download card of the musical content at 24-bit/96k (live tracks are 24-bit/48k). This is what all deluxe reissues should aspire to be.
Painstakingly remastered from the original master tapes by guitarist Jimmy Page
, and pressed at Pallas (Europe's best plant), this 180g LP of Houses of Holy
sounds amazing. Page spent years on this project with one goal in mind: Making these reissues the end-all-be-all definitive editions of his iconic band's records.
He has succeeded, and then some. In addition to the reference-caliber audio, each LP features packaging that fully replicates the look of the first pressing of the original album.
The companion audio for Houses of the Holy
gives fans the first peek into the band's recording sessions, with different mixes of seven tracks. They include rough and working mixes for "The Ocean" and "Dancing Days" that reveal a deeper look inside the recording sessions of these classics. Other standout recordings include the guitar-mix backing track for "Over The Hills And Far Away" and a version of "The Rain Song" without piano. Nobody outside of Zeppelin's inner circle has ever heard these until now.
Led Zeppelin topped the charts again in 1973 with Houses of the Holy, which features legendary tracks such as "The Song Remains The Same" and "No Quarter" while also showcasing the continuing evolution of the band's signature sound with the reggae-tinged "D'yer Mak'er" and the funk jam "The Crunge." The album has been certified diamond by the RIAA for sales of over 11 million copies.
