Presence (Deluxe Edition) Tracklist:
This is one of my personal favorite Led Zeppelin albums. This album has a great flow, track after track. Also, this album has great vocals, great drum solos, and great guitar solos as well. Finally, the instruments wrap around the vocals like no other, and intertwine perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the next limited play album, and extended play album from Led Zeppelin.
The Deluxe editor of Presence is still fresh as it was back in 1976. Superb Remastering by Page has made this a must buy either by Download or by physical LP/CD. Look out for the Track Royal Orleans reference Mix as it interestingly has Bonzo singing lead vocals making this a real Treat!
Masterpiece. The best unreleased track from Zep. Bonham, JPJ and Paige at their finest... The way they weave melodies through the final 3 minutes is incredible. piano, drums, electric and acoustic guitar playing over each other in perfect harmony, each musician trailing off in their own direction. Reminds me of the later half of Layla but probably better. Turn it up and let it roll!!
10 Ribs & All / Carrot Pod Pod (Pod) is worth the $12.99 alone. Weird name, but an absolutely beautiful piece that shows they were more than capable in the years after Physical Graffiti. The raw emotion behind the making of this album as a whole is epitomized in this piece. Would have been nice to see some live extras from North America '77 (that's what I loved about the LZ I Deluxe Edition) but I doubt that will happen. There are plenty of bootlegs to highlight the ups and downs of that tour and I don't think Jimmy wants to revisit that tour. Bottom line, they were the best of their time. End of story, Thank you gentlemen.
Ehhh. Their all reference mixes. Their alright. They sound the same with slightly edited vocals or guitar. The only tracks that pop out to me are "Royal Orleans (Reference Mix)" and "10 Ribs & All/ Carrot Pod Pod (Pod) [reference mix]" (weird name). Royal Orleans has John Bonham (I think) sing and 10 ribs is something I wasn't expecting. It's a beautiful piece. It's soft and has amazing piano.
WAKE UP YER MOMMA, here's where Led Zeppelin gets up and blows away the pretenders! The penultimate guitar suite, Achilles' Last Stand (here in 2 versions) has always been Pagey's finest (extended) hour, while Hots On for Nowhere and Nobody's Fault But Mine flat-out rank with the finst and most intense rock and roll this band ever unleashed. Take those, and the rockabilly (Candy Store Rock) and "Since I've Been Loving You"- Mach 2 (Tea for One), and you have an LP that YOU GOTTA HAVE! $12.99 for $1,299.00 worth of music. Who's Talking Now??? Your Daddy, and boy, IS he right!
No live tracks..essentially the same original album with "working title" mixes.Love me a whole lotta Zep but this is ultimately frustrating.The Stones are doing it right with the recent super deluxe Sticky Fingers.Outstanding.
