Led Zeppelin remasters on vinyl… VINALLY!

 

lz-2014

 

After endless speculation fueled by former guitarist Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin and Atlantic/Swan Song today announced the first wave in a new reissue campaign from one of the world’s most acclaimed rock bands.

Starting on June 3, with the first three Led Zeppelin albums from 1969-1970 – all self-titled, with Roman numerals appended to each “sequel” – Page has overseen remastered and expanded versions of each of the band’s albums, all featuring a disc’s worth of unreleased vault content, including studio outtakes, alternate mixes, live cuts and a few entirely unheard songs. In a statement, Page called these bonus discs “a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin.”

Each album will be available in multiple formats:

  • 1CD remaster in gatefold card wallet
  • 2CD Deluxe Edition
  • 1LP remaster on 180-gram vinyl with packaging “that replicates the LP’s first pressing in exacting detail (For example, III will feature the original wheel and die cut holes.)”
  • 2LP Deluxe Edition (3LP for the first album) featuring the same contents of the 2CD Deluxe Editions
  • Super Deluxe Box Sets featuring the Deluxe Edition contents on CD and LP, a 96kHz/24-bit audio download card (the live tracks on the first album will be in 48kHz/24-bit audio), 70+ hardback book with liner notes and photos, a high-quality print of the original album cover (the first 30,000 of each album will be numbered) and, in the Led Zeppelin box, a replica of the band’s original press kit

    Are all Led Zeppelin albums being released on vinyl on the original Swan Song Label as a boxed set or individual sets?

  2. The Dude says:

    It looks like there are 3 possibilities. 1 record / 2 records with out takes (or with 2 live LPs on LZI) or the super deluxe with the LPs & CDs and the books and such. I really only know what’s in this at this time! I’ll pass along more info as I get it. Thanks for posting!!! TheDude
