iTunes Review

Led Zeppelin’s fifth album and the first to feature a non-numerical title, Houses of the Holy continued the band’s streak of impeccable studio releases. Their stylistic range expanded here into reggae (“D’yer Mak’er”) and funk (“The Crunge”), while holding their ground in the mystic (“No Quarter”). This 2014 deluxe edition features remastering by guitarist Jimmy Page and adds alternate mixes for each of the album’s eight tracks. It’s like hearing the album inside out, as a work in progress. The alternate tracks of “No Quarter” and “Over the Hills and Far Away” are instrumental versions, while the mix on “The Rain Song” provides a different look.

rip off

Kids, there is nothing less interesting nor instructive than a "working," rough" or
"reference mix" . These are the 'take-away' mixes that the artist would bring home rom the studio to check out the tone of this or that or the EQ or something. It's the exact same recordings you have already heard a million times with stuf taken off, instruments louder, lower or omitted from the dub. A 'no piano' Rain Song? Who cares? I have a setting on my Ipod that can do virtually the same thing. There is nothing new here that you won't be skipping over in a day or two after the novelty has worn off. The LZ 2 and 3 releases had maybe one or two items of passing interest apiece but all in all this whole enterprise is a pretty shoddy piece of merchandising. The remasters are indistinguishable from the PREVIOUS ones and none sound as good as the original vinyl (yes there's marginally clearer separation, but Page already acomplished that with the first go-round).
This allbum, and its immediate predecessor are great, iconic work from a great iconic band, and if the vaults have been purged so be it. Nobody needs this. Surely there are rehearsal or live recordings, alternate PERFORMANCES, differing arrangements? Or perhaps not. But if I'm going to pay a premium for 'bonus material,' that's all I'm going to be paying for.
Very disappointing. The live material accompanying LZ1 was inferior to the BBC material of the same vintage, but was at least "new" material. This era was amply documented on the wonderful "How the West Was Won,' but surely there's more live tape somewhere? Improv material, etc?
Here's hoping that the subsequent releases- my favorite period starts with Physical Grafiti, the album that followed this- are more substantial.

Rain Song Heaven...

Received an iPhone notification that The Rain Song (Mix Minus Piano) was already downloaded at 2:08 AM, 9/30/14, before the late October release.based on my iTunes Auto DL setting.

Page’s remix is incredible - sounds like it was recorded today. Vocals and Drums are brought out more and are richer; instruments are more partitioned; clarity far better and output of course enhanced. Can still hear piano though - but it’s a beautiful, necessary layer IMO.

If you DL one track from the forthcoming FOTH Super Deluuxe edition - make it this one.

Swan Song

Would be nice to see Jimmy release the Jonnie Kidd and the Pirates covers...also remix and release Swan Song...now there's some new material!...HAMMEROFTHEGODS

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 by...
