Editors’ Notes

Released in October 1969 (just nine months after the self-titled debut), Led Zeppelin II, known affectionately as "the Brown Bomber,” was written and recorded while the group toured relentlessly to support their debut album. Though it was assembled in numerous studios, band guitarist Jimmy Page performed his usual production magic and gave the album a uniformity of sound that emphasized the monster riffs that formed the basis for heavy metal. The endless touring ensured that many of the songs were written as riffs and later finessed in the studio. Nearly every song here became an FM radio staple. This 2014 deluxe edition, remastered by Page, includes alternate mixes of four songs from the album, plus backing tracks to “Thank You,” “Moby Dick,” and “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just a Woman)” and the previously unreleased track “La La.” Hearing these songs pulled apart as such lets the hardcore fan better understand how the final versions came to be. They also illustrate the genius of engineer Eddie Kramer, whose work with Jimi Hendrix had impressed the band, including Page. 

Customer Reviews

For the naysayers: Remastered for first time since 1990 and new songs

No, you don't have this already. This is your chance to hear this siesmic album almost for the first time. And the unreleased tracks are sure to be intriguing.

WAY BETTER THAN TODAY'S TRASH!

WAY BETTER THAN TODAY'S TRASH! C'mon guys! It's led zeppelin! Huh? Ring any bells? I love the sound, love the everything (that doesn't make sense). Listen to a couple of songs! Buy the album!

LZ's Best.

This is the album that introduced most of my generation to Led Zeppelin. The first album emerged with little fanfare the previous summer, went Gold, but the second album was an event. Huge lead-off single, "Whole Lotta Love", which was a new sound in the universe. And no, Sir, this is not the first remaster since 1990. Page did it again less than a decade ago. But from the sound of the rough mix of "WLL", he's created more space between the instruments... along the lines of the Doors 40th Anniversary remixes. It's always worth having the best possible version of this great album in one's collection, especially if you, like me, are a Baby Boomer who remembers when Led Zeppelin II was brand new.

Biography

Formed: July, 1968 in England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

What the Beatles were to the '60s, Led Zeppelin were to the '70s: a band so successful and innovative they wound up creating the prism through which their entire epoch was seen. Zeppelin ushered in the era of album rock — they refused to release singles off their albums, even when they were garnering massive radio play — and of arena rock, playing ever-larger stadiums as their ticket sales skyrocketed. Other bands played on a similar field but Led Zeppelin carried a unique mystique cultivated...
