Houses of the Holy
The songwriting and studio mastery of Led Zeppelin reached their summits on this 1973 classic, which saw them step yet further away from their bluesy roots to swagger with The Song Remains the Same; The Ocean; D’yer Mak’er; The Crunge; Dancing Days, and Over the Hills and Far Away; transfix with No Quarter, and reach new heights of lush chordal beauty with The Rain Song. The vinyl and CD deluxe editions here add a keys-up mix of The Crunge; a minus-the-piano mix of The Rain Song; a guitar-overdub reference mix of The Song Remains the Same; a guitar-mix backing track of Over the Hills and Far Away, and more previously unreleased versions. The huge sound of this rock essential benefits greatly from the remastered (and 180-gram vinyl) treatment here, and the big hardcover book brings you the stories and scenes behind the creation of the mighty Houses of the Holy! Atlantic/Swan Song.
