Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 73/500!
No matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you’ve never
heard Led Zeppelin like this before.
The Led Zeppelin reissue campaign continues turning the spotlight on the double
album Physical Graffiti. The group’s sixth studio album originally debuted on February 24, 1975.
The reissues of the first five Led Zeppelin albums in 2014 found both commercial
successes, with multiple titles reaching Top 10 chart status in countries around
the world, as well as widespread critical acclaim, including the recent Classic
Rock “Reissue Of The Year” Award.
As with the previous reissues, Physical Graffiti has been newly remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and is accompanied by a disc of
companion audio comprising previously unreleased music related to the original
Certified 16x platinum in the U.S., the commercial success of Physical Graffiti
was equaled by its critical reception. Generally regarded as one of the greatest
double albums of all time, the original 15 tracks represent a creative tour de
force that explores the band’s dynamic musical range, from the driving rock of
“Custard Pie” and acoustic arrangement of “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp” to the Eastern raga
of “Kashmir” and funky groove of “Trampled Under Foot.”
The companion audio disc that accompanies the deluxe edition of Physical
Graffiti has seven unreleased tracks, including rough mixes of “In My Time Of
Dying” and “Houses Of The Holy,” as well as an early mix of “Trampled Under
Foot” called “Brandy & Coke.” All the unreleased companion tracks offer fans a
chance to hear well-known songs from a different perspective, including the
Sunset Sound mix of “Boogie With Stu” and “Driving Through Kashmir,” a rough
orchestra mix of the band’s eight minute opus “Kashmir.” Also featured is
“Everybody Makes It Through,” a strikingly different early version of “In The
Light” with alternate lyrics.
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, having sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. 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 and most innovative 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.
