In line with the trend of re­mas­ter­ing ana­logue record­ings, the first three Led Zep­pelin al­bums have been given the once-over, and ex­panded with an ad­di­tional sec­ond disc. This in­cludes live ver­sions from the right eras, out­takes and back­ing tracks plus al­ter­na­tive mixes and ver­sions as se­lected by Jimmy Page, many of which have not been heard be­fore. We’re all fa­mil­iar with the ma­te­rial, but with greater in­stru­ment sep­a­ra­tion, there’s new life and en­ergy here that will ap­peal to every­one. Tech­nol­ogy con­tin­ues to im­prove, so we nat­u­rally ex­pected these to be bet­ter than the ear­lier dig­i­tal at­tempts, and hap­pily they are. It’s a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment! Var­i­ous for­mats are avail­able, sin­gle CD, dou­ble CD and vinyl plus a deluxe box set – and this is only the start, so ex­pect their other stu­dio al­bums to re­ceive sim­i­lar treat­ment be­fore long. And although the ad­di­tional ma­te­rial will ap­peal far more to the hard­ened fan than to a new re­cruit, it’s still a very worth­while project. Hats off to Page!
