Classic Records / Swan Song
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.
Do you have this pressing? If so, what do you think? Do you have a different pressing? How is it? Please feel free to comment.
