Led Zeppelin Mothership and rereleased TSRTS

These new releases brings a smile to my face and more than just a little excitement and eagerness for November to hurry up and arrive.
Not so much 'Mothership', but the new songs released on TSRTS.



On November 13, Atlantic Records/Rhino Entertainment will honor LED ZEPPELIN with the release of "Mothership", a 24-track, two-CD comprehensive collection that spans their illustrious career. All eight of the band's classic studio albums are represented here, with the tracks being personally selected by Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones. "Mothership" includes landmark songs such as "Whole Lotta Love", "Immigrant Song", "Kashmir", "Rock And Roll", "Dazed And Confused", "Stairway to Heaven". The set will also include new liner notes. Available at all physical retail outlets and www.ledzeppelin.com, "Mothership" collectible packages will be available in multiple configurations:

* Standard Package – 2-CD set
* Deluxe Edition – 2-CD/ 1-DVD featuring the 90-minute, premiere-version of the "Led Zeppelin" DVD (£12.20 SRP)
* Collector's Edition – 2-CD/1-DVD ultra-deluxe, collectible limited edition
* Vinyl Edition – 4 LPs, high-end, audiophile quality vinyl with collectible memorabilia

"Mothership" Track Listing:

Disc One:

01. Good Times Bad Times
02. Communication Breakdown
03. Dazed And Confused
04. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You
05. Whole Lotta Love
06. Ramble On
07. Heartbreaker
08. Immigrant Song
09. Since I've Been Loving You
10. Rock And Roll
11. Black Dog
12. When The Levee Breaks
13. Stairway To Heaven

Disc Two:

01. Song Remains The Same
02. Over The Hills And Far Away
03. D'Yer Maker
04. No Quarter
05. Trampled Under Foot
06. Houses Of The Holy
07. Kashmir
08. Nobody's Fault But Mine
09. Achilles Last Stand
10. In The Evening
11. All My Love

Slated for a simultaneous release, Warner Home Video debuts brand-new DVD editions of "The Song Remains The Same", now for the first time with all 14 songs from the original concert. The DVD features newly remixed and remastered sound, 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, and boasts more than 40 minutes of added bonus material, including never-before-released performance footage of "Over The Hills And Far Away" and "Celebration Day"; plus performances of "Misty Mountain Hop" and "The Ocean"; a rare 1976 BBC interview with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page; vintage TV footage from the Drake Hotel robbery during the New York concert stand; and a Cameron Crowe radio show.
The discs will be available as follows:

* Deluxe Edition DVD
* Deluxe Edition HD DVD and Blu-ray
* Limited Collector's Edition – 2-disc set includes collectible vintage T-shirt with original album artwork design, soundtrack CD, lobby cards, reproductions of original premiere invites, tour schedule, and more

"We have revisited 'The Song Remains The Same'," says Jimmy Page, "and can now offer the complete set as played at Madison Square Garden. This differs substantially from the original soundtrack released in 1976, and highlights the technical prowess of Kevin Shirley, who worked with us on 'How The West Was Won'. When it comes to 'The Song Remains The Same', the expansion of the DVD and soundtrack are as good as it gets on the LED ZEPPELIN wish list."

"The Song Remains The Same" track listing:

Disc One:

01. Rock And Roll
02. Celebration Day
03. Black Dog (including Bring It On Home)*
04. Over The Hills*
05. Misty Mountain Hop*
06. Since I've Been Loving You*
07. No Quarter
08. The Song Remains The Same
09. Rain Song
10. The Ocean*

I find this slightly perplexing, as there are already two compilations floating around that are nearly identical to the "Mothership" in tracklistings, those being Remasters and the Early Days & Latter Days set.

"Mothership" - A completely unnecessary cash grab a la U218

TSRTS DVD -

Not their greatest performance, but long overdue.

U2 could learn from the Zep camp on how to put out a DVD

I'm sure there will be people out there who never bothered with other compilations who will purchase Mothership, which most likely will be cheaper than the two separate compilations (Early Days and Latter Days) already out there. It's just targeted to casual fans, that's all. No big deal.

Obviously, though, the big news here is The Song Remains The Same. Been waiting for that one a long time.

Exactly. Mothership is just another Remasters, designed as a money making release and to get the newer Zeppelin fans in.
Still, it has some nice collectable packages, especially the 4 lp vinyl.

TSRTS has some very nice new edition releases with the exciting bonus of previously unreleased tracks, including a new SIBLY. Shame there is no Thank You though

This is the biggest thing since HTWWW and an absolute bonus for Zep fans

Back on stage: Led Zeppelin to perform reunion gig

Back on stage: Led Zeppelin to perform reunion gig

Friday, September 07, 2007

Six digits on the official website of Led Zeppelin was all it took yesterday to fuel fevered hopes that the longest-awaited and most-rumoured reunion in rock history is about to be announced - and spark a huge scramble for tickets.

The surviving members of the British band widely held to have redefined rock music - and how to indulge in its hedonistic excesses - are set to play their first full-scale concert in 27 years with a one-off appearance in November at the O2 venue in Greenwich, south-east London.


The group's front man, Robert Plant, was reported to have confirmed the performance to an autograph hunter, while those involved with promoting the gig said full details would be announced within the next 10 days.


Fan websites were buzzing with speculation that the concert would be held on 13 November after the home page of LedZeppelin.com carried the American-style date 11.13.07 without further explanation. The date is a day after the release of Mothership, the band's latest greatest hits collection.


A source said: "It is going to happen. We are finalising the precise timing but basically the guys have agreed they want to do it. It will be a one-off."


It is thought the concert in the former Millennium Dome will be a charity event in memory of Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of Atlantic Records, the jazz and blues label that signed Led Zeppelin in 1968 without ever seeing them perform, apparently on the advice of the singer Dusty Springfield.


But sources said claims that the band will also play two gigs in America - one in Florida and one in New York - were wide of the mark.


The London concert will be performed by Plant and the two other original band members, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones. The drums will be played by Jason Bonham, whose father, John, was Led Zeppelin's drummer until he died aged 32 by choking on his own vomit after a drinking binge in 1980 - an incident which prompted the remaining members to go their separate ways.


Talk of a reunion has periodically emerged ever since but the group have only performed two short sets since 1980 - one for the Live Aid concert in Philadelphia in 1985 and one at the 40th birthday celebrations of Atlantic Records in 1988. Plant and Page have also performed together amid a rumoured rift between the band's singer and John Paul Jones, reported to have been resolved in 2002.


The O2 gig follows recent reunion performances by other bands such as The Police and Pink Floyd. The Rolling Stones continue to set the pace for ageing rockers, earning about €300m for each of their world tours.


It is unlikely the three men from Led Zeppelin, aged between 59 and 63, are reuniting for financial reasons. Widely lauded as one of the best bands of the 20th century with their album-based exploration of multiple musical genres and influences, they have sold 300 million records. The solo from "Stairway to Heaven" was voted the best guitar rock solo of all time in 2005.


But a chance to witness a reprise of such classics as "Whole Lotta Love", "Stairway to Heaven" and "Black Dog" will cause a stampede for tickets among the band's masses of fans. The band famously refused to endorse the release of any of their song as singles, preferring aficionados to experience their work in the album format or in live performances.


Several companies were yesterday offering tickets costing between €400 and €750 for the performance in the 20,000-seat O2 Arena, amid warnings that touts and fraudsters are seeking to profit from the demand. One company is offering a combined ticket and hotel package costing £369 (€550).


Internet chatrooms carried complaints from fans that the venue was too small for such an eagerly awaited concert and tickets would go to corporate sponsors and predatory touts who will seek to sell them on at inflated prices.


Harvey Goldsmith, the promoter who helped launch Live Aid and the O2, and has promoted Led Zeppelin in the past, warned fans earlier this week not to buy tickets before events had been officially announced. He said: "We are concerned the public will be fleeced. The bottom line is unless official adverts have appeared, tickets are not for sale. Do not buy from unauthorised sources."


After forming in 1968, the four members of Led Zeppelin (whose name according to one version of the band's history is a pun on the phrase 'lead balloon') became probably the world's biggest music act at the height of their popularity in the early 1970s.


They became known almost as much for their off-stage exploits as their musical mastery, often booking entire floors of hotels for drink-fuelled parties. But their music continues to have wide appeal.


Jimmy Page said recently: "I thought the music would endure; I didn't think I would. I always thought I'd be dead by 30, then dead by 40 and on and on."


He is now 63.

The fact that they have released three nearly identical Greatest Hits compilations in about 10 years is revolting.
