The Led Zeppelin news got way bigger after my post.  Had I waited, I could have been more thorough regarding the actual content. Oh well, better late than never.  So, without getting back into useless banter other than what the albums are planning, here’s the run-down:

All three Led Zeppelin albums mentioned will be provided with new remastering by Jimmy Page with the addition of unearthed material related specifically to the album.  There will be multiple formats, showing that Atlantic is completely behind this reissue campaign.  The formats include various CD arrangements, vinyl LP, digital downloads, as well as a limited Edition Super Deluxe Box.

All three are scheduled for June 3.

Of these formats, the breakdown looks like this (a cut n paste from the Led Zeppelin site):

· Single CD – Remastered album packaged in a gatefold card wallet.
· Deluxe Edition (2CD) – Remastered album, plus a second disc of unreleased companion audio.
· Single LP – Remastered album on 180-gram vinyl, packaged in a sleeve that replicates the LP’s first pressing in exacting detail. (For example, III will feature the original wheel and die cut holes.)
· Deluxe Edition Vinyl – Remastered album and unreleased companion audio on 180-gram vinyl.
· Digital Download – Remastered album and companion audio will both be available.
· Super Deluxe Boxed Set – This collection includes:
. Remastered album on CD in vinyl replica sleeve.
. Companion audio on CD in card wallet.
. Remastered album on 180-gram vinyl in a sleeve replicating first pressing.
. Companion audio on 180-gram vinyl.
. High-def audio download card of all content at 96kHz/24 bit. (Live tracks are 48kHz/24 bit).
. Hard bound, 70+ page book filled with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
. High quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered.
. Led Zeppelin will also include a replica of the band’s original Atlantic press kit.

  1. Let’s see no 5.1 hi res disc only a download card for that,not a big fan of demo or slightly different mix material,definitely don’t want the overpriced box,looks like single disc remaster for me

  2. The same same old story… We need to buy the remaster of the remaster? What a joke. Lets point to Yes/Wilson remixed/remaster WORKS!!!

  3. Yep, by not having a hi res bluray or dvd-a, forget about those deluxe sets. As much as I’d like the books it’s just not worth it. A 5.1 mix would have forced me to buy them. On the positive side I will save over a $1000 by getting the 2-disc sets instead of the box.
    And why isn’t “Hey Hey What Can I Do” on the 2nd disc of LZ 3?
    Out of curiousity, how would you get a hi-res digital download from the computer to a nice sound system? Can you burn it to a disc?

    1. I have the reaction as Bill B.

      I was looking forward to posisbly getting BD versions of each album, but there’s no way I’m paying a fortune for extra swag and a download file.

      At this point, I’m just going to wait for the inevitable boxed set with all the 2CD versions in it. I already own all of the albums anyway, so I can wait.

      What a missed opportunity.

    2. Bill,

      Have you heard of the Blue Sound products? They seem to have decent products on getting your existing Hard Drive stored music to your entertainment center.

      1. No I don’t. I will have to read up on it. I doubt it will change my mind for this particular LZ package (still overpriced if you don’t want the vinyl) but I’d like to find out more about it.
        Thanks for the tip Mike.

  4. yeah,What a missed opportunity is right! I wonder if the reasoning for NOT offering these titles as Blu Ray Audio discs was to offer them exclusively as Pono downloads?
