    CD 1 has been remastered better than other releases over the last 25 years. Anyone who has heard everything that has been released can tell the difference. CD 2 is fantastic because once and for all you can hear LZ warts and all on an official release instead of the low quality LZ bootlegs that have surfaced for over 40 years. Jimmy Page should have stuck with the same formula on the other two releases instead of weak remixes and backing tracks. I would much rather listen to untouched (no studio fixes) live material with mistakes, missed cues, out of tuning, meandering drum times, etc than a fake live album called a soundtrack. I hope JP sticks with this formula on the other release, especially the next 3 where LZ tours from 1972- 75 were really great.

    I'm focusing on the 2nd "bonus" disc as what can you say about the debut? The extra audio on the ‘companion disc’ is eight tracks from Led Zeppelin Live at the Olympia, a previously unreleased October 1969 concert from Paris, France. Often, the group drifts into endless jams -- "Dazed and Confused" hits 15 minutes, "You Shook Me" at nearly 12 -- but this never seems ponderous, possibly because it opens with a version of "Good Times Bad Times" that the group quickly abandons for an insanely fast "Communication Breakdown," playing it as if they were sprinting to the finish. Zep played differently on-stage than they did in the studio and listening to live Zep in their prime & early days is such a delight!

    I have listened to these albums on vinyl in there original release all my life. But I have never heard them sound like this! Every subtle nuance is crystal clear and isolated it's own bubble while vibrating in the same cloud as all of the other beautiful noises. Truly one of the best remastering undertakings that I've ever heard. I used to showcase my high end audio analogue system with the original "Since I've been Loving You." But This new version exposes all of the greatness of my stereo ten times more. It just goes to show how important the quality of the source material is!

    While the original recordings on the first disk are not noticeably updated from previous CD releases, the value of this package lies in the previously unreleased live recordings which shows what the the Mighty Zeppelin sounded like in their early days. You catch them seemingly in between their first two albums, kicking off with a tight performance of Good Times Bad Times/Communication Breakdown, and working on newer songs like Heartbreaker which would eventually become an extended staple of their live sets in much the way Dazed and Confused is on the following track.

    Led Zeppelin is the beginning of the Heavy Metal Revolution! It starts right off with the sweetly sad Good Times, Bad Times and ends with the philosophical How Many More Times. The first disc (Original Album) I give 5 stars to. The second disc contains a live show from Paris in 1969. For the most part, it is very good, but there are a few points where the music just seems to meander to the point of filling up time. Like the later albums, if the bonus material had outtakes instead of a concert, I would give the set a perfect 5. My Led Zeppelin journey begins!

    This is a truly nice package. Jimmy Page remastered the original recording of the first album and it sounds fantastic. Then the live concert from Paris on the second disc shows Led Zeppelin's ability to play live and take each song to new heights. Jimmy Page's insane guitar solos, Robert Plant's masterful vocals, John Paul Jones' driving bass lines, and John Bonham's double bass drum solos are a must hear. Buy this disc, particularly if you are a young kid who loves classic rock and the blues that it came from. You will have no remorse.

    Led Zeppelin's first album is a real classic. The deluxe edition provides a bonus disc of an audio recording of Led Zeppelin's 1969 concert in Paris, France. The bonus "live" album represents a treasured chronicle of the band in its early days. The sound is awesome. Fans of Led Zeppelin will probably appreciate this deluxe edition, with the classic debut album and a brilliant live show from a young, raw band from 1969. A good reason to replace your old copy of Led Zeppelin I in order to have the "live" concert.

    This album rocks - big time. Starting with Good Times, Bad Times - as many would hail as the greatest song in history, (second to Stairway), this was the first of many legendary rock albums of the 70's - during the period when rock music was flourishing at it's best! Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones were masters and made it clear on this album.

    This is one of the greatest albums of all time!!! If you don't have this record in your collection you better grab it and listen to it as loud as you can crank it. I bought this 'remastered' version ( LP and CD) only for the live '69 show from Paris included as a bonus, but it sounds very distant and hollow! If you are buying this for the live show and expecting great sound, you will be very disappointed. Very surprised Jimmy Page put this out!!!

    As a big Led Zeppelin fan, I was eager to get these remasters of Led Zeppelin mainly for the bonus material. However, if you already have the complete set from previously, this release is not necessary for the casual fan. The concert is probably not a big draw as the BBC live covered this era pretty well. I couldn't tell a huge difference aurally between the two masters (but I am not an audio expert). So unless you are a die-hard fan, you may want to skip this one.

    While not as much of a necessity as the new Coda remaster, the release still features a live CD of the band in good form in Paris circa 1969 along with Page's remaster of their 1st release. Part genius, part big sloppy mess (which is pretty much what you got with the tight rhythm section of Bonham and Jones, Plant's manic vocals and the out of control guitar of Page on a nightly basis, it is fun to compare to other live disks by the band.

    The remastering of the original album as presented on disc one is nice. Zeppelin fans will notice a few subtle differences, particularly with regard to the organ on some tracks. But for me, the inclusion of that live Paris show makes this edition a winner. Disc 2 isn't full of outtakes and rarities. No, it's a complete concert from the time between Zep I and Zep II. Great look at the young band.

    I think the value in all these releases witll be the bonus material. The live disc on this one is stellar. Great moment of a legendary band at the beginning of its rise to the top. As for the remastering, yeah, it is sharper and crisper. So, if you're an audiophile always looking for that improvement in sound from prior recordings, then this is one for the buy list.

    Heard this album for the first time in 1970. I was 10 years old I didn't usually go for a lot of loud stuff at the time. Bands were playing loud just to be loud, but these guys took my breath away. I love the bonus cd. It's not the best recording but the spontenaety es all there. These albums have been remastered on several occasion. This is the best.

    While pictures of the band are nice, these box sets suffer from limited information and historical limitation. The sound is great, and on this disc specifically the live tracks are sensational, but I was expecting more overall from these packages. Recommended but not enthusiastically. If you're a fan you've already made up your mind!

    One of the greatest debuts of all time. The original album is a classic and needs no further introduction. If you like hard rock and heavy metal, you already know this is great. The Deluxe Edition contains a 1969 concert from Paris. This is an essential document of how Zeppelin sounded at this point in time, between Zep I and Zep II.

    Powerful, crisp sound on this remastered disc. If you are just starting to build your Zeppelin catalog, this is well worth the money. If you already have 5 different versions of every album, this is still a great package due to the bonus concert from Paris in October, 1969 that captures a young, hungry, dynamic band at full throttle.

    It's Led Zeppelin I, an absolute masterpiece of heavy blues ("Dazed and Confused"), proto-punk ("Communication Breakdown") and even avant-folk ("Black Mountain Side"). Not their best album (that honor goes to Physical Graffiti) or most famous (Led Zeppelin IV, of course) though this debut is essential for any Zeppelin fan.

    This album set the standard for all the blues metal bands that followed. The trio of "Your Time is Gonna Come," "Black Mountain Side," and "Communication Breakdown" was the most powerful 1, 2, and 3 leadoff songs on any album side ever made. This combination with the concert on disk two is highly recommended.

    It's been a classic since its release 45 years ago. I grew up with it, like many of my generation. I bought it when it was just re-released last week, & I'm guessing many others did too. Not many albums can generate that sort of loyalty, excitement, etc. more than 4 decades after their release.
