Led Zeppelin Coda Deluxe Edition 3CD
Deluxe Edition Features Original Album on CD PLUS
Two Companion Audio Discs! Newly Remastered by Jimmy Page!
The appropriately titled Coda was Led Zeppelin's final album of studio
recordings. Released in 1982, it was comprised of eight unreleased tracks
recorded between 1970 and 1978. It peaked at #6 on the album charts and has been
certified platinum in the U.S.
The reissue campaign ends with a double-barrel blast of Led. Coda will be the
only Led Zeppelin deluxe edition to include two companion discs, featuring 15
tracks recorded between 1968 and 1974. The oldest song in the collection is also
perhaps the most interesting. The frenetic blues jam "Sugar Mama" was recorded
in 1968 at Olympic Studios during sessions for the band's eponymous debut. The
song was completed but never officially released until now. "Baby Come On Home"
from the same session is also included in the set. Also included is the
previously unreleased "St. Tristan's Sword," a rollicking instrumental recorded
during the Led Zeppelin III sessions in 1970.
In 1972, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page took a fabled trip to India to perform with
the Bombay Orchestra and now, for the first time, recordings from these sessions
will be officially released with dynamic takes on "Friends" and "Four Hands"
("Four Sticks" from Led Zeppelin IV). Among the many other highlights featured
here is an early version of "When The Levee Breaks" from 1970 titled "If It
Keeps On Raining"; rough mixes of "The Wanton Song" and "In The Light," from the
Physical Graffiti sessions at Headley Grange, the latter a different alternate
version than the one included in the Physical Graffiti deluxe edition; and an
instrumental mix of "Poor Tom" from 1970.
A collection assembled after John Bonham's death, Coda includes the ringing folk
stomp of "Poor Tom," the jacked-up '50s rock & roll of "Ozone Baby," and their
response to punk rock, the savage "Wearing and Tearing." There is some stellar
playing, especially on the early blues-rock blitzkrieg "I Can't Quit You Baby"
and "We're Gonna Groove."
Deluxe 3 CD package features original artwork, plus the newly created negative
artwork for the companion audio, all with embossed printing. The original album
is newly remastered; the 2nd and 3rd CDs present the only Led Zeppelin deluxe
edition to include two companion discs, featuring 15 tracks recorded between
1968 and 1974. 16-page booklet.
