Led Zeppelin I (Deluxe CD Edition) 

The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including an epic 15-minute version of "Dazed And Confused, " as well as "Heartbreaker" and "Moby Dick, " which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.
Led Zeppelin II (Deluxe CD Edition) 

Led Zeppelin II (Deluxe CD Edition) 
The Led Zeppelin II companion audio gives fans the first peek into the band s recording sessions, with alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to "Thank You" and "Living Loving Maid (She s Just A Woman), " and the previously unreleased track "La La."

Led Zeppelin III (Deluxe CD Edition) 

The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: "Jennings Farm Blues" (an instrumental forerunner of "Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp"), "Bathroom Sound" (an instrumental version of "Out On The Tiles"), and their take on the blues classics "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind. "


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.

With the 2014 release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, & Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album. 

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin, " says Page. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time."

The Led Zeppelin legend began in January of 1969 with the group s eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of "Good Times Bad Times, " on through to "Babe I m Gonna Leave You, " "Communication Breakdown, " and "Dazed And Confused, " the album introduced the band s unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape. Led Zeppelin has been certified diamond by the RIAA for sales over 10 million and was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2004. 

Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham took the stage at London s O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album. 

Editorial Review - Product Description
Zoso / Houses of the Holy
In 1968, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant formed Led Zeppelin, one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, having sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Page brought in Plant, Bonham and Jones to tour as The New Yardbirds. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released its self-titled debut. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which the group was widely considered to be the biggest and most innovative rock band in the world. The Led Zeppelin reissue campaign got off to an remarkable start in June 2014 as deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. The albums achieved similar international success with debuts near the top of the charts in more than a dozen territories, including Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom. For the second round, the band prepared the reissues of Led Zeppelin IV (the third best-selling album in U.S. history) and Houses Of The Holy. As with the previous deluxe editions, both albums have been newly remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album. 

Zoso

The second round of reissues begins with one of the most artistically influential and commercially successful albums in the history of music, Led Zeppelin IV. 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, has been certified 23x platinum by the RIAA. The Led Zeppelin IV deluxe editions include unreleased versions of every song heard on the original album including alternate mixes of "Misty Mountain Hop" and "Four Sticks, " mixes of "The Battle Of Evermore" and "Going To California" heavy with guitar and mandolin, and the fabled, alternate version "Stairway To Heaven, " mixed at the Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles which lets fans hear one of the most revered songs of all time as they have never heard it before. Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. 

Houses of the Holy

In 1973, Led Zeppelin topped the charts again 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. The seven unreleased tracks on the companion audio disc include rough and working mixes for "The Ocean" and "Dancing Days" that reveal a deeper look inside the recording sessions of these classic songs. 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. Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history.

The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant – along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham – took the stage at London’s O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records’ founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album

Band Overview
Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest rock and roll bands. So what makes their music special? They are great interpreters of the blues greats, while putting their own signature on the song. Their rhythm is sensational. John Bonham has great patterns and the power he releases is immense. John Paul Jones riffs are classic. He holds the bottom end down expertly, plays the riffs hand in hand with guitarist Jimmy Page, and incorporates tasteful organ and piano. Robert Plant is a great vocalist no doubt. However, what sets him apart is the times when his vocals are the lead instrument, and not just singing over the band. Let's not forget Jimmy Page, the guitarist of the band. He is clearly a great soloist, producer, improviser, and songwriter.

Their greatness of Led Zeppelin's music comes from the synergy of the group. Sure all the band members are immensely talented, but it is the group chemistry that sets them apart. The way Led Zeppelin compose songs is extraordinary. After listening to some of their songs I have the feeling, wow, "perfectly done." Rather than a typical response, "that's a great song." However, I have not been blown away with any of the members solo efforts and I've listened to plenty. 

When I listened to Led Zeppelin when I was younger I noticed the rock and blues parts of their compositions. Later I began to notice their folk roots. Clearly a strong point of their song writing is the ability to blend many different styles into a song. They also rank at the top of rock bands meshing acoustic instruments into an electric setting, arguably the best.

We may review the remaining albums to be comprehensive. Though, we have covered what we consider their best work. It is our view that Led Zeppelin's three best studio albums are Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin IV, and Houses of the Holy

For live Led Zeppelin their video called Led Zeppelin DVD is the best.  But don't overlook How the West Was Won.

Building a Led Zeppelin collection.
Collector
Since Led Zeppelin live performances captured on How the West Was Won and the Led Zeppelin DVD are essential, we'll use that as the foundation. Our second premise is with the exception of their last two studio albums, they are all excellent. With the two live purchases there is a bit of overlap with the studio albums, but the versions are different enough to get them both. If you want to avoid the overlap, read on. 

With both the DVD and How the West Was Won, the easiest to studio albums to overlook are Led Zeppelin I, and Led Zeppelin III, with Led Zeppelin II close behind (if you must). 

Putting the DVD aside, with just How the West Was Won, you'd certainly need to put on your list, Physical Graffiti, and Presence as no material from those albums are covered. There are a few live tracks from Houses of the Holy on the  West album, but it is missing many of the key songs, "The Song Remains the Same," The Rain Song," and "No Quarter." Too, "the studio version of "Over the Hills and Far Away" is essential even with a live rendition. Those are the three most complimentary Zeppelin albums to How the West Was Won. 

Also of strong interest, but I can not call it mandatory is Led Zeppelin's BBC Sessions; a nice purchase indeed. There is a ton of material from their first two albums and a taste of the third and fourth. 

Casual fan - I don't care for any of Led Zeppelin's box-sets. Perhaps it is due to its random song sequence combined my familiarity of the progression from hearing the albums. They do have single discs that are sequenced chronologically where the first volume covers the first four albums and the second volume the rest.
