Nice Christmas Present for Led Zep fans!

The first 2 Led Zeppelin albums played a major role in my formative years – I never owned them but my mate Buzz did, and we listened to them over and over and over again, whilst in training to be proto-hippies and rock stars. I still haven’t got round to getting them on CD, but I’d be very happy if Santa Claus brought me this fantastic box set!

The Led Zeppelin limited-edition boxed set of mini-LP replica CD set is released by Rhino Records and is available on November 4. Date now changed to November 11th. The CD boxed set contains Japanese imports of all 10 of the quartet’s albums in mini-LP replicas with artwork from the original U.K. LP sleeves.

There’s a comprehensive listening party here:

The Who Live at Kilburn release

The Who are up there with the select few bands in the pantheon of Rock Music- I have somewhere a live recording of a show featuring The Dead and The Who – I enjoyed both bands sets, and even today The Who’s tunes are classics that are played from record and CD around the world, used too, of course, for the themes to the various CSI shows and still performed live by many bands – certainly in the North East of England. The Who: At Kilburn: 1977 will be available on DVD & Blu-Ray from Image Entertainment on November 18th. The gig is finally being released from the vault and showcases the band with all its original members in top form performing many of their biggest hits. There is a streaming extract here
