Led Zeppelin Remasters Update

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.
