Led Zeppelin — II

$21.95

180-gram vinyl remastered by Jimmy Page

Led Zeppelin II is thought by many to be the band’s hardest and heaviest. From the opening wallop of “Whole Lotta Love” to the last notes of “Bring It On Home,” the band is peerless. Led Zeppelin’s second album, released in 1969, is a genius follow-up to their debut just eight months earlier — full of bluesy hard rock swagger with an improvisational bent. Remastered by Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin II  has never sounded so good.

Led Zeppelin’s second album is a sonic tour de force, from Jimmy Page’s sledgehammer riffs to Robert Plant hitting high notes that only a dog could hear. John Bonham gets his moment too, beating the absolute crap out of his kit on “Moby Dick.” Led Zeppelin II continues to show the band’s deep love and fascination with American Blues. The album is brimming with powerhouse re-workings of songs from Chicago bluesmen Willie Dixon (his “You Need Love” becomes “Whole Lotta Love”) and Howlin’ Wolf (“Killing Floor” morphs into “The Lemon Song”).

Written in snatches between shows on the band’s relentless 1969 tour, Led Zeppelin II was the band’s first album to hit number-one in the U.S., knocking The Beatles’ White Album out of the top spot. It’s hard to believe now, but the critics were mixed in their reviews of Zep’s second album — but nobody can say that Led Zeppelin II didn’t out-heavy the heaviest bands of the day. One of Jimmy Page’s art school buddies, David Juniper, designed the iconic Led Zeppelin II album cover, based on a vintage World War photo of the Jagdstaffel 11 Division of the German Air Force.
