The Rover - Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti (Vinyl, Album, LP)

Marks Bar and Grill on the corner. Simon Gardiner recreated the Physical Graffiti cover as the buildings look today.

If you click through to his Flickr page , you can see a sharply detailed larger version. Gardiner also dug up this choice morsel of Led Zeppelin-related arcana…. Solid choice. Led Zeppelin IV. The safest, and arguably the most popular, choice. Sure, you could play it safe, pick Led Zeppelin IV and feel confident in your decision. My percent correct answer: Physical Graffiti , the double LP that celebrates its 45 th anniversary today.

Led Zeppelin never did anything small. Watch this item. People who viewed this item also viewed. Picture Information Free postage. Mouse over to zoom - Click to enlarge.

True Zeppelin fans would no doubt consider that to be heresy, part-time ones such as myself are allowed to say it though :. I have always been irritated by the "oh my jeeder Also the way it grinds to a halt with the "cough" bit, making it sound like a demo.

Nice one. The quality continues on the excellent funk rock of "Trampled Under Foot", a track the like of which Zeppelin had not done before. Then we get a copper-bottomed Zeppelin classic in the Eastern-inspired insistent rock of "Kashmir".

Lots of superlatives have been written about it over the years, so I won't attempt to add to them. The proggy "In The Light" takes nearly three minutes to arrive, so to speak. When it kicks in its has a big, deep bassy drum sound and a sensual vocal from Plant.

Again, like "Kashmir" it utilises new and adventurous string enhancements. I love the second half of the track where it goes into that anthemic keyboard-driven bit. When the drums and guitars come along - wow.

One of the best Zeppelin passages of music for me. This also marks the point where the atmosphere of the album changes. The best archetypal Zeppelin stuff is now gone. What comes next are some interesting diversions and innovations and changes in ambience. However, there is a case, for me, that ending a single album after "In The Light" would still have been a great one.

The latter ends with some solid rock parts, however. It still has some top notch riffs on it, though, although some of them are almost glammy. It would not have been out of place at the beginning of the album. It is a loose slice of boogie-woogie piano-led rock 'n' roll, with Plant sounding not unlike Slade's Noddy Holder.

Or maybe era Holder had heard this and sounded like Plant. The track is fun and shows the band's lighter side, something that was not always apparent. The carefree feel continues on the acoustic blues of "Black Country Woman". It also has a "Led Zeppelin III" feel to it, particularly the thumping drum sound together with the acoustic guitar.

There are "proper" Led Zeppelin fans who no doubt can review this a lot better, but as one who has all their albums but is not an absolute die-hard, I always find this an intriguing and very enjoyable album.

The sound is remarkably-clear and lively. It really breathes, and has dynamics. Jimmy Page has really achieved a remarkable deluxe-remastering, and should be praised. Many people consider this album to be his magnum-opus. The Companion Disc contains an interesting early version of In The Light which is entitled Everybody Makes It Through, and which has a different introduction, and, different lyrics. The packaging is truly excellent, and is just like the original vinyl-release.

The accompanying page booklet is also excellent, with lots of photographs in both colour, and, black-and-white. The Eastern mystery, and magnificence of, both the music and lyrics of, Kashmir, are a true-achievement. Physical Graffiti is considered to be the greatest hard-rock album of all-time. A timeless master-piece. First released on the 24th February , the sails filled across 40 years, , now 40 years gone, sitting with The Elders, In The Light.

Award 5 Stars! Great sounds. Don't mind the packaging although I would prefer hard covers for durability. Pleased with the mix on these CD remasters although I think some of the early Analogue remasters are superior in timbre and tone. Clarity was never an issue with Zeppelin albums so tweaking for a more precise sound really isn't what one needs to hear. All-in-all I'm glad I bought all the albums from Zep two to six as the sound is definitely superior to my standard CD versions. I didn't bother with Zep one as most other reviewers say this one is the weakest of the bunch and anyway I'm happy with my analogue-remaster.

I will be buying the first six vinyl copies shortly although I already have excellent early vinyl pressings in my collection. I'm looking forward to comparing the originals against the remastered vinyl. It should be interesting!

One thing has confused me, it clearly states in the adverts on Amazon that four out of the five Cd's should have auto-rip versions available for download, but I can't find any vouchers or codes within the packaging to allow me do this.

Am I missing something Amazon? After having 4 albums released which are, for the most parts, in the same vein, Houses of the Holy came out and was something different, deviating from the heavy blues rock and folky songs, with more popmusic and even funky influences, plus the rather apart progrock on No Quarter.

Ironically the title track from that 5th album was nowhere to be heard, till this monster double album was released. It contains songs from earlier recordingsessions and new written material, which suit each other excellent. From the hard rock to acoustic folk, progrock to country blues, Led Zeppeling masters it all. Anyway, those can be found on the closing album Coda. Exactly 40 years after its release on 24 february this new package is unveilled with a companion CD with alternate takes.

However, most don't make a big difference, Sick Again is much shorter. Everybody Makes it Through the Light is a much better song than the one on the original album, shortened to In The Light.. But no new songs are presented here. Press mentioned that tapes were found with unreleased songs, apart from different versions.

Spoken was about Midnight Moonlight, a ten minute song present on the first album by The Firm and credited to Page and Paul Rodgers, the singer of that band.

So those extra songs don't shine new light on this album, which in it self is brilliant. A joy to listen to, each time again. Load more international reviews. Arrived today packaging was really good the album is good apart from side 3 Ten Years Gone l havre had to clean the record twice then put it through a cleaning machine it's not perfect but l know it's there and not quite right, has anyone else had this problem?

Is it the pressing? Apart from that small but very annoying issue it's a fantastic album another zeppelin classic imo. One person found this helpful. It might well have been said before but I have to repeat-this album may well be Led Zep's pinnacle.

I love all of their studio albums but you can honestly sit down with this one and be blown away by such high quality songs,sound and musicianship on almost every track here. Of course there are the ones we all know and love like In my time of dying,In the light,Trampled underfoot and the majestic Kashmir but there are also the maybe slightly lesser known but no lesser quality Custard pie,Night flight,The rover,Houses of the holy,Down by the seaside and the beautiful Bron-yr-Aur to name just a few.

Like most folks though the reason to shell out again for this collection is the 'Companion' disc which promises much but sadly is not as interesting as it might have been.

Description. The classic recordings on Led Zeppelin 's iconic double album Physical Graffiti never sounded this good, not even when enjoyed in black-light rooms in the s. Painstakingly remastered from the original master tapes by guitarist Jimmy Page, and pressed at Pallas (Europe's best plant), this Deluxe Edition g 3LP of Physical Graffiti is utterly amazing.

  3. Led Zeppelin’s sixth album is a double-length, song sprawl that represents the legendary band at the absolute height of its powers. The added space allowed Led Zep to absolutely thrive and show off every facet, from nasty blues rockers like “The Rover” and “Houses of the Holy” to the gently crafted prog ballads “Down By the Seaside” and “Ten Years Gone.”.
