Led Zeppelin Announce “The Song Remains The Same” Reissue

Led Zeppelin will be releasing a remastered reissue of the soundtrack to their concert film “The Song Remains The Same” on September 7, the same day the band played their first show in 1968 under the name the New Yardbirds. Jimmy Page supervised the remastering of the effort, which includes recordings from their July 27-29 1973 shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Blabbermouth shared the following info regarding the various formats:

Led Zeppelin Post Trailer For “Record Store Day” Limited Edition 7-Inch Single

Led Zeppelin have posted a new trailer for their “Record Store Day” (April 21) limited edition 7″ single. That release, which will be pressed on yellow vinyl, was produced by Jimmy Page, and it will come with a mix of “Rock and Roll” from the “Sunset Sound Mixes” for “Led Zeppelin IV”, and the “Olympic Sound Mix” of “Friends,” which removes the orchestration for “a true fly-on-the-wall feel from the band’s recording sessions for Led Zeppelin III at Headley Grange.”

Rufus Stone Publications To Release Special 50th Anniversary Edition Of “Led Zeppelin – Five Glorious Nights” Photo Book

Rufus Stone Publications will be releasing a special 50th anniversary edition of “Led Zeppelin – Five Glorious Nights.” You can pre-order that HERE.

Here’s an official description:

Originally released in 2015 Five Glorious Nights – Led Zeppelin at Earls Court May 1975 captures the visual magnificence of the band though the photographic images of some of the finest rock photographers of the era – who were right there on the spot to capture rock history.

Drawing from the archives of a variety of photographers including the legendary Barry Plummer, Dick Barnatt, Ian Dickson, Michael Putland, Mick Gold, Gus Stewart and more – the book chronicles the sheer visual splendour of these historic concerts though an extensive collection of colour and black and white photos – many of them rarely seen. The photos are complimented by rare memorabilia and a written commentary that puts into perspective exactly why these concerts were some of the finest Led Zeppelin ever performed.

The book is compiled and written by Dave Lewis – the highly respected Led Zeppelin archivist and author and editor of the long running Led Zeppelin magazine Tight But Loose. Dave was in attendance at all five of the Earls Court concerts.

This special, limited Edition of the book is available in a run of just 50 copies, celebrating the bands gold anniversary. The book is a 300mm square, 288 page hardback book with leather quarterbind and foiled, embossed cover. Each book is signed by the author Dave Lewis and lead photographers Barry Plummer and Dick Barnatt and numbered 1 – 50. The book comes with a folder featuring a 3D lenticular cover housing 4 prints selected by Barry Plummer and Dick Barnatt. The whole package comes in a gold metal slipcase with laser cut logo and a unique Five Nights t-shirt (small, large or extra-large).

Five Glorious Nights – Led Zeppelin at Earls Court May 1975 has been acclaimed by fans and critics with Chris Charlesworth remarking “It is a fine tribute to a legendary group, conceived and assembled with loving care and attention to detail by Lewis, now their foremost archivist. Bearing in mind the prices of these upper end editions, it’s a bit of a bargain, at least compared to Genesis editions. The photo budget must have been colossal as there are over 250 included here.”
