The next round of Led Zeppelin reissues (after the band reissued its first, second and third untitled LPs) are its classic 1971 fourth album (also untitled, but generally referred to as IV) and 1973’s follow-up, Houses of the Holy.
You can now preorder Led Zeppelin IV on LP, Deluxe LP, Super Deluxe LP, CD or Deluxe CD, and House of the Holy on LP, Deluxe LP, Super Deluxe LP, CD or Deluxe CD on Amoeba.com and they'll ship for FREE to the U.S. Both albums will arrive in stores October 28, 2014.
The Deluxe IV LP and Deluxe CD include the original album remastered, plus an extra disc of the following tracks:
1. Black Dog (Basic Track With Guitar Overdubs)
2. Rock And Roll (Alternate Mix)
3. The Battle Of Evermore (Mandolin/Guitar Mix From Headley Grange)
4. Stairway To Heaven (Sunset Sound Mix)
5. Misty Mountain Hop (Alternate Mix)
6. Four Sticks (Alternate Mix)
7. Going To California (Mandolin/Guitar Mix)
8. When The Levee Breaks (Alternate UK Mix)
The Super Deluxe IV LP includes both the two-CD and two-LP versions, plus an HD download card, a hard-bound, 80-page booklet with rare photos and memorabilia, and a high-quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered.
The Houses of the Holy reissue follows in much the same way. The two-disc versions include the remastered original album plus a disc with the following tracks:
1. The Song Remains The Same (Guitar Overdub Reference Mix)
2. The Rain Song (Mix Minus Piano)
3. Over The Hills And Far Away (Guitar Mix Backing Track)
4. The Crunge (Rough Mix - Keys Up)
5. Dancing Days (Rough Mix With Vocal)
6. No Quarter (Rough Mix With JPJ Keyboard Overdubs - No Vocal)
7. The Ocean (Working Mix)
The details of the Super Deluxe Houses set are the same as for IV.
The single-disc versions of both albums include just the original tracks, remastered.
Now you can own nearly all of Led Zep’s most iconic albums! That just leaves Physical Graffiti, Presence, In Through the Out Door and Coda, plus live albums like The Song Remains the Same. I’d expect even more Led Zep reissues down the road.
