Led Zeppelin Mini-LP Box Set Due Nov. 4
On November 4, Rhino will be issuing a Led Zeppelin box set containing mini-LP replica CDs of all 10 of the band's albums. The limited-edition set will contain the Japanese imports of the replica albums with artwork from the original U.K. LP sleeves. Suggested retail price for the box will be $199.98.
The mini-LP replicas boxed set includes Led Zeppelin (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), Led Zeppelin IV (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973), Physical Graffiti (1975), Presence (1976), The Song Remains the Same (1976), In Through the Out Door (1979), and Coda (1982).
The sleeves included in the boxed set feature the original LP album artwork released in the U.K., including the original printing of the group’s debut, which used turquoise ink on the cover for the band’s name and the Atlantic Records logo. Later printings used orange ink, making the first a rare collector’s item. The orange sleeve is included with the boxed set as a bonus.
Led Zeppelin III features the gatefold sleeve with the rotatable laminated card disc, while Physical Graffiti, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for best album package, features the interchanging window illustrations from the original LP jacket that included four covers made up of two inners, a middle insert cover and an outer cover.
Additionally, the set includes all six covers released for In Through the Out Door, Led Zeppelin’s final studio album. Nominated for a Grammy Award for best album package, the In Through the Out Door covers feature different photos of the same bar scene taken from different perspectives.
