No matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you’ve never
heard Led Zeppelin like this before.
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."
In 1968, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant formed Led
Zeppelin, one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in
modern music. The band has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide with a
celebrated catalog including such landmark songs as "Whole Lotta Love,"
"Kashmir," "Rock And Roll," "When The Levee Breaks" and "Stairway To Heaven."
The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Page brought in Plant,
Bonham and Jones to tour as The New Yardbirds. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released
its self-titled debut. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which
the group was widely considered to be the biggest rock band in the world.
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.
