Led Zeppelin Deluxe Reissues Coming Soon to a Record Store Near You
I already own Led Zeppelin's entire catalog on vinyl and CD, the boxed sets and Celebration Day, and now Rhino Records has announced that deluxe reissues of Zep's entire body of work will be released.
Holy s*** doesn't even BEGIN to cover it.
Jimmy Page often times talks out of his ass with these grandiose plans that take YEARS to complete and I get it. They're anal retentive and want everything to be just so. That's the Led Zeppelin way, so when he originally started publicly talking about the idea I thought, "Yeah right. Not in my lifetime" but now I need to eat my words. Rhino Records is now saying that this is in fact happening, even though they have nothing to do with the project.
Apparently a rep for the label talked to Rolling Stone Magazine about the reissues, saying that they're going to be handled by Swan Song/Atlantic which is the exact same label that put out the original releases, as well as their latest feat, Celebration Day. The article said that Jimmy promises there will be alternate takes, outtakes, and remixes of their songs, but no new material.
Here's the coolest part: The albums aren't all going to come out at once. They're going to be released in the same order they were released during the band's career. No word on a release date for it,but IT CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH!
In the mean time, please enjoy this video from their reunion show at the O2 in London.
