I might be interested in some of them if the price is right.


at this point, knowing I'm going to listen only a few times to over 90% of these types of releases, I have no problem going pirate… yes, stealing!
I don't have the money and I'm ok with having purchased multiple times before.
The free option exists.



There's a delicious irony in stealing Led Zeppelin's music!

Imagined it? I've routinely abused myself for decades just at the very thought of it!

I hope this isn't brickwalled to death.

It won't be. Jimmy Page remastered everything for vinyl, and he's adamant about maintaining the integrity of the original recordings.

Here's the complete press release from warner music:



First Three Albums Newly Remastered By Jimmy Page,

Each With An Additional Disc Of Previously Unreleased

Companion Audio



Multiple CD, Vinyl, And Digital Formats,

Including Limited Edition Super Deluxe Boxed Set, Available June 3



John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant came together in 1968 as Led Zeppelin. Over the next decade, the band would become one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, selling more than 300 million albums worldwide. Their songs are some of the most celebrated in rock ‘n’ roll history that, to this day, resonate with fans young and old around the globe. Still, no matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you’ve never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.



With the June 3 release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.



"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin,” says Page. “It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time”



Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III will each be available June 2 from Atlantic/Swan Song in the following formats:



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 off 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.


The Led Zeppelin legend began in January of 1969 with the group’s eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of “Good Times Bad Times,” on through to “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Communication Breakdown,” and “Dazed And Confused,” the album introduced the band’s unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape. Led Zeppelin has been certified diamond by the RIAA for sales over 10 million and was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2004.



The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including an epic 15-minute version of “Dazed And Confused,” as well as “Heartbreaker” and “Moby Dick,” which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.



The band wrote and recorded nearly all of Led Zeppelin II while touring relentlessly to support its debut album. Incredibly, the album was released just seven months after Led Zeppelin in October of 1969. Led Zeppelin II features some of the band’s most beloved tracks including “Ramble On” and “Heartbreaker” as well as “Whole Lotta Love,” considered by many to be one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time. The album is certified diamond by the RIAA with sales of over 12 million copies.



The Led Zeppelin II companion audio gives fans the first peek into the band’s recording sessions, with alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to “Thank You” and “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman),” and the previously unreleased track “La La.”



Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as “Immigrant Song” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum.



The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III’s companion audio continue to offer a window into the band’s recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: “Jennings Farm Blues” (an instrumental forerunner of “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp”), “Bathroom Sound” (an instrumental version of “Out On The Tiles”), and their take on the blues classics “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.”



Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant – along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham – took the stage at London’s O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records’ founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album.

It was really hard to me assimilate that Led Zeppelin one of my fav bands was not a cover band but the band with most plagiarism in the history of rock, they even made plagiarism of plagiarism... Why? It was just to give proper credits and then “Arr. Page-Plant”

Forget these official re-releases, if you want to hear some amazing Led Zeppelin studio outtakes, alternate takes and rehearsal material hunt up Godfather's 18cd set, Studio Majik, and their just released 2cd, All Tat Glitters Is Gold, The Making Of Led Zeppelin IV. Add to that the release of their entire catalog on Japanese SHM-CD's and you have enough great stuff to launch you into Zeppelin nirvana!

Led Zeppelin Sued by Spirit Bassist For ‘Stairway To Heaven’
by Dave Lifton May 16, 2014 9:32 PM


...
Hulton Archive, Getty Images


Once again, Led Zeppelin are finding themselves as defendants in a lawsuit alleging that they stole one of their classics from another musician. Only this time it’s not a folk or blues musician, but a fellow rocker.

Business Week reports that Mark Andes, the founding bassist of Spirit, is filing suit agains the band, claiming that the introduction to ‘Stairway to Heaven‘ is very similar to their song, ‘Taurus.’ Ultimate Classic Rock noticed the resemblance between the two on our list of the Top 10 Spirit Songs.

Andes is seeking an injunction to block the impending re-release of Zeppelin’s fourth album, on which ‘Stairway’ appears, in the hopes that guitarist Randy California, who wrote ‘Taurus,’ gets a co-writing credit on the song. California died in 1997, but not before telling a reporter, “I’d say it was a ripoff. And the guys made millions of bucks on it and never said ‘Thank you,’ never said, ‘Can we pay you some money for it?’ It’s kind of a sore point with me. Maybe someday their conscience will make them do something about it.”

In order to prove copyright infringement in a U.S. court, the claimant has to prove not only that the songs are virtually identical, but also that the defendant had access to the source material. Led Zeppelin’s first concert in America was as Spirit’s opening act in 1968, the year in which ‘Taurus’ was released on their self-titled debut. The two bands also appeared together on several festivals in 1969.

Led Zeppelin’s history with copyright infringement is one of the most notorious and well-documented in rock history. Previous lawsuits have forced them to give co-writing credit on ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,’ ‘The Lemon Song’ and ‘Dazed and Confused.’

We’ve embedded the two songs below so you can judge for yourself if the songs are similar.

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

I say it is Close and with the history of LZ yes it was lifted, what does that mean. I'd say in the Spirit of the law they get a Ticket to Heaven.
Or You Could say that Spirit "Got a Line On You" and LZ was Caught in "Dazed and Confused"

First...I am no entertainment law expert...no, really...I am not... Shut the fuck up now

A valid argument...however, different enough to make the judge toss it out i think. I think the only chance Spirit has is to show history and character intent. Since STH came out on their forth album, and other plagiarisms occurred prior to that release, they have a case in that direction.

The "identical" sound is subjective, but I think that the portion of it is long enough for a basis of copyright infringement.

There's a delicious irony in stealing Led Zeppelin's music!


LOL

It was really hard to me assimilate that Led Zeppelin one of my fav bands was not a cover band but the band with most plagiarism in the history of rock, they even made plagiarism of plagiarism... Why? It was just to give proper credits and then “Arr. Page-Plant”




You know what gets over-looked. Is someone going to tell me that not one record industry person or sound man never heard those songs Zeppelin lifted? C'mon, the Record Companies are just as guilty.
