The song remains the same? When it comes to Led Zeppelin's upcoming remasters, that's not necessarily true. In a new interview, Jimmy Page told Mojo that every original Led Zeppelin album will be reissued in 2013, each in its own box set. Each box set will contain alternate versions of the band's classic songs.
You shouldn’t really have to use EQ in the studio if the instruments sound good. It should all be done with microphones and microphone placement. The instruments that bleed into each other are what creates the ambience. Once you start cleaning everything up, you lose it. You lose that sort of halo that bleeding creates. Then if you eliminate the halo, you have to go back and put in some artificial reverb, which is never as good.
