Fans of Bonham and the band revere Presence (1976) as Led Zep’s most explosive drum album, from the epic opener Achilles Last Stand and its copious air-drumming moments to the stomping For Your Life; the riff heaven that is Royal Orleans; their classic take on the blues standard Nobody’s Fault but Mine; another guitar monster, Hots On for Nowhere; the rockabilly throwback Candy Store Rock, and the heavy slow blues Tea for One. Jimmy Page remastered the CD and 180-gram vinyl, and the deluxe editions add these previously unreleased reference mixes: Two Ones Are Won (Achilles Last Stand); For Your Life; the instrumental 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod); Royal Orleans, and Hots On for Nowhere. Mega-fans, of course, will need to go super deluxe; that’s the only way to get the deluxe edition on CD and vinyl plus a hardbound 72-page book with rare and unseen photos and memorabilia plus a high-quality print of the original album cover. Not Led Zeppelin’s most famous album, but one that ardent fans count as absolutely essential! Atlantic.
