Led Zeppelin Releases Remastered Sets for “IV” and “Houses of the Holy”

Led Zeppelin: "IV" Super Deluxe Edition Box SetLed Zeppelin’s year-long releases of remastered versions of its studio albums continue with the iconic Led Zeppelin IV (also known as Zoso to many) from 1971 and Houses of the Holy from 1973. The remastering and assembly of the sets were overseen by Zeppelin guitarist/producer Jimmy Page.

These albums show the band, featuring superstar bassist John Paul Jones, at what some would argue was its height — especially on Led Zeppelin IV, which includes classics like “Black Dog,” “Rock and Roll,” “Misty Mountain Hop,” and of course, “Stairway to Heaven.”

Super deluxe edition boxed sets of each album include not only the remastered original record, but CD sleeves that replicate the original album art as well as alternate album art on CDs of companion audio. The albums in these sets are also on 180-gram vinyl (for both the remastered recording and companion audio — and like the CDs, featuring covers with original and alternate art.) There are also high-definition download cards of all content, 80-page hardbound books about each album, and a print of the original album art.

There’s also 2-CD deluxe edition sets, as well as 2-LP deluxe vinyl (180-gram) sets, both featuring the remastered and companion content. And then, there are just single CD and vinyl sets of just the remastered albums, as well as digital downloads for each.
