Led Zeppelin – Coda (1982)

Classic Records / Swan Song

90051-1

Led Zeppelin - Coda (Front)

    • Originally Released:  November 1982

    • This Release:   2001

    • Mastering:   Bernie Grundman

    • Comments:   Considered by many to be the runt of the Led Zeppelin litter (myself included), due to the fact that it consists of unreleased tracks spanning the band’s career, this is actually a really solid collection of mostly very good songs. What it lacks in consistency, it more than makes up for in delivery. This is my first vinyl copy of this particular album so I have no other vinyl to compare to, but holy shit it sounds great. Another great 200 gram slab from Classic Records, mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analogue tapes. If you look hard enough, it can still be found for a reasonable* price.

* Warning: your definition of reasonable may differ from mine.
