Watch Led Zeppelin’s Super Deluxe Edition of ‘Physical Graffiti’ Reissue Get Unboxed
Until we get our hands on the real thing, Led Zeppelin's new unboxing video for the upcoming Super Deluxe Edition of their 'Physical Graffiti' reissue will have to do.
The clip isn't long -- the 36-second length is barely enough to scratch the surface of the song playing during the unboxing, the epic 'Kashmir' -- but it gives us a pretty good idea what to expect in the massive box set when it comes out on Feb. 24. You can watch it above.
Among the highlights of the package: three CDs (the original double album from 1975 plus a disc of seven bonus songs from the sessions), three vinyl records, remastered sound, a 96-page hardback book and a limited-number print featuring the LP's famous cover art.
The reissue will also be available in cheaper editions, including a three-CD set that includes the remastered album plus the disc of extras.
As with the previous five outings in this new reissue series, which is being overseen by Jimmy Page, the bonus disc is the real draw here. While the band's self-titled debut included live recordings from 1969, the other albums featured mostly studio outtakes of familiar songs.
This is the case with 'Physical Graffiti' too: All of the cuts are early versions or alternate takes of songs that ended up on the album. You can see the track listing for the extras disc below. A rough mix of 'Houses of the Holy' has already surfaced online.
