LATEST LED ZEPPELIN REMASTER STREAMING LIVE TOMORROW
Tomorrow (February 19th), Yahoo Live will stream Led Zeppelin’s entire Physical Graffiti reissue, its companion audio disc, and a live Q&A with Jimmy Page. The Page chat will take place in front of a live audience at London’s famed Olympic Studios — in the same room where portions of the album were originally recorded over 40 years ago.
Fans watching online are encouraged to participate as well using the hashtag #ledzeplive and can log on at 2 pm ET to watch at https://screen.yahoo.com/live/event/led-zeppelin. The new package will be released on February 24th.
Jimmy Page, who has personally remastered the band’s catalogue, and produced the bonus archival material in the reissues, explained that the members of Led Zeppelin both found themselves and came into their own by joining forces: “There is some, like, divine intervention at this point that must bring us all together, because John Bonham, for example, wasn’t even known down in London, he was only known locally; although I saw him play with Tim Rose in London. And he played, but he never had the chance to play drums like John Bonham was going to play in Led Zeppelin. And John Paul Jones — a fine session musician and he’d done some arranging — but he never had the chance to show what John Paul Jones could do until he was in Led Zeppelin. And the same with Robert Plant.”
Physical Graffiti — Led Zeppelin’s sole double studio set — was released on February 24th, 1975. The album hit Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart and held down the top spot for six straight weeks.
- The collection is a hodge podge of eight new songs mixed with seven outtakes from Led Zeppelin III, Led Zeppelin IV, and Houses Of The Holy.
- The new edition of Physical Graffiti features seven previously unissued alternate tracks and outtakes — in addition to remastered versions of such Zeppelin classics as “Kashmir,” “Trampled Under Foot,” “Houses Of The Holy,” “In My Time Of Dying,” “Down By The Seaside,” “Boogie With Stu,” and “The Wonton Song,” among others.
