81 Songs, 6 Hours 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Complete Led Zeppelin collects the eight studio albums the foursome released between 1969-79, plus the posthumous ninth and final studio album Coda, released in 1982, after the death of drummer John Bonham. This is the core of ‘70s classic rock that travels far beyond the definition. While Led Zeppelin were clearly among the early progenitors of ‘Heavy Metal,’ back when it was considered to be loud, blues-based music, they hardly stayed in one place long enough to be defined as anything other than Led Zeppelin. They mastered hard rock with their lead-off track “Good Times, Bad Times” and nailed British folk on III and “The Battle Of Evermore.” IV became their centerpiece, every song a classic, with “Stairway to Heaven” serving as their national anthem. Houses of the Holy and Presence emphasized their ability to groove, while their double-album Physical Graffiti was the prototypical sprawling double album that all major rock artists tried once. In Through the Out Door explored synthesizers and featured everything from epic Zeppelin to old school rock ’n’ roll and the heartbreaking “All My Love.”

Great compilation of a Great Band! Not so great iTunes remastering...

Led Zeppelin has to be considered one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever. Their ability to switch it up and deliver great tunes on each and every album is outstanding.

However, i find that this July 23, 2013 Mastered for iTunes version to be seriously flawed. It appears the treble has been cranked up leaving the instruments sounding "tinny" rather than the "warm" sound you get from the remastered CD version from 1993. I have to wonder if Jimmy Page was involved at all with this new iTunes release , it doesn't sound like the way he remixed the original tunes. While the music is preserved well, the fact that it is cranked up and tinny sounding does not do it any justice. I was looking forward to purchasing this set here on iTunes. I have heard the CD version and while a bit "louder" than the 1993 boxed set , it maintained the "warm" feeling of the original mix.

I'll wait until the newer version of the CD set comes out to purchase this great collection of tunes.

What Happened to the Remastered???

Before this came out, there was a Remastered version from 2007 that had many live albums and extras and (13 discs) and was only $99.99. It even had Mothership Greatest Hits included in it as well. This is a complete rip off!

Remastered set

What happen to the remastered set? It was 99.99 had had EVERY SONG. Now u pay 89.99 and its missing the Song remains the same nada few other albums. This album should be offered for 50 to 60 dollars. The music is GREAT, the price stinks.
