17 Songs, 1 Hour 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This landmark self-titled debut album was issued in January 1969 and has sold more than 10 million copies. From the opening blast of “Good Times, Bad Times,” it’s apparent that Led Zeppelin are a serious new force. The layered acoustic-electric tones heard throughout on songs like “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Your Time Is Gonna Come,” and “Communication Breakdown” confirm the band’s complexity and grand ambitions. This 2014 deluxe edition begins guitarist Jimmy Page’s remastering program of the entire Zep catalog and features an extensive bonus: a previously unreleased performance recorded on Oct. 10, 1969, at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. An epic 15-minute version of “Dazed and Confused” indicates how early in the band’s career this song became a concert centerpiece. “Heartbreaker” and “Moby Dick” would appear on Led Zeppelin II, released later in the month. “White Summer/Black Mountain Side” bring Page’s Yardbirds days into his then-present work. It's hard to believe this is just the beginning.

You are all missing the point

The one star is for the reivewers. Anyone buying here is completely missing the point. This remastering was done for better sound! The CDs, Vinyl and/or the Hi-Res (not available here) are what you need. For High-Res either buy the Super Deluxe package or go to HD Tracks dot com. I've seen people questioning whether or not the the remaining albums will get remastered. If you spend 10 seconds on Google, you will not only find the answer is yes, but you will find out what has been done and why. And PLEASE... Stop reviewing the band or the album, review the PRODUCT (which is the remastering) . We all know the band and the album is good. Add something useful other than "OMG this is fav band ever! Awesome Album"

No difference in the sound

I have done a lot of reading on Mastered for iTunes brand trying to figure out the significance. This set of releases is marked as remastered AND MFI, I downloaded Dazed and Confused to compare it to the original CD release, that I burned to my iTunes Library. I have to say that I was not able to hear any measurable difference that would cause me to download these as a replacement to the original releases. If you want the extra content that is a different story, I’m not a LZ completest, so I was just hoping for improved sound quality, which I did not get.

You Know I've Had My Share

Led's deut album. Mixed in 1968. Released on January 12, 1968. Zep 1 changed the music world overnight. Jimmy had assembled the perfect banc. & together, Jimmy, John Paul, Robert & John crated what would become hard rock. an entirely new sensation. I'm not sure why we're getting a new release, again. But if it's newer & improved, bravo. if you've never heard this album, check it out. it's probably the most ground breaking debut album ever. & the thing is, it sounds as fresh today as it did forty-six years ago. So CRANK UP THE VOLUME & GET THE LED OUT!
