Led Zeppelin IV


Recorded at Headley Grange in Hampshire Island Studios in London and Sunset Sound in Los Angeles Led Zeppelin IV is the album that put Led Zeppelin into homes around the world acting as a successful marriage of the hard rock from their second album with the folkier meanderings of their third It is an album that demonstrates their subtlety and restraint as much as their stadiumfilling grandstanding and it confirmed their superstar rock status The actually untitled album it was also known as Four Symbols or The Runes Album a charttopper on both sides of the Atlantic captures the group's schizophrenia perfectly On the one hand they wallop away through genredefining rock standards such as 'Rock And Roll' 'Black Dog' and 'Misty Mountain Hop' yet on the other they are gentle and restrained on the folk mysticism of 'Going To California' and the Sandy Denny cosung 'The Battle Of Evermore' It is on their anthem 'Stairway To Heaven' however that both strands come together in perfect accord Starting as a recorderdriven acoustic folk ballad it culminates in its closing minutes as a fullon much emulated rock classic with Robert Plant's vocals and Jimmy Page's guitar both approaching careerbests Led Zeppelin IV also demonstrates the singular talent that was drummer John Bonham the blues driven 'When The Levee Breaks' is one of the most heavily sampled drum tracks of all time With immaculate playing multiinstrumentalist John Paul Jones' contributions are not to be underestimated either a mystically obscure sleeve and a remarkable range of tunes Led Zeppelin IV is still for many the best example of the group's craft CD The original album newly remastered in a Gatefold sleeve that replicates the original LP 2CD Deluxe 2 CD package with the original artwork plus the newly created negative artwork for the companion audio The original album is newly remastered the 2nd CD features previously unreleased studio outtakes LP Original album newly remastered on 180 gram vinyl in Gatefold sleeve replicating the original album 2LP Deluxe remastered album and unreleased companion audio on 180gram vinyl Box A  Super deluxe box containing Double CD Double LP 80 page Hard Back book Highquality print of the original album cover the first 30000 of which will be individually numbered and more
