  • What lasts long will finally be good. Especially when it comes to remastered tapes. The Reissues of the Led Zeppelin albums were announced for a long time. By 2014 the time had come: They're here. At the end of May "I" to "III" were released, and from October 2014 "IV" and "Houses Of The Holy" will be available From 1968 to 1971 Led Zeppelin released three albums at a rapid pace within 15 months. In the 1960s and 70s it was already fast, but today it is an almost unimaginable frequency of releases. The album "III" was surprisingly not so well received at first. The criticism was particularly frustrating for Jimmy Page, who did not speak to the press for two years.

    In interviews, Jimmy Page pointed out that he didn't like the digital versions of Led Zeppelin's albums from the 1980s. The sound is too little differentiated, since the CDs were not produced from the studio tapes, but from mixed versions. For the Reissue 2014, Page used the 1972 studio tapes as the basis. The remastering wants to stay as close as possible to the concept of sound that Led Zeppelin had in mind for vinyl pressing. On the other hand, Page appreciates the possibilities of digital remastering and the many digital formats that exist today. He wants to do justice to both sides of the coin, and he succeeds excellently.

    Led Zeppelin's fifth album, "Houses Of The Holy", was underrated for a long time. Today it is regarded as an insider tip among Led Zeppelin fans. Top numbers are the funky "The Crunge" (ironic homage to James Brown, a deliberately non-danceable song), "The Song Remains The Same", "The RainSong", "Over The Hills And Far Away", "D'yer Mak'er", "No Quarter" and "The Ocean". The album now has diamond status. It's been sold over 11 million times.
