About six months ago I became a fan for life when I heard ‘Achilles Last Stand’ off of Presence. I made it my New Year’s resolution to get my hands on more of Zeppelin’s music. I landed this box set … in an Amazon.com auction and for almost 2 months didn’t buy another CD, because this was all I needed. This is the ultimate starter kit for those who want to get the full scope of the band’s work and an understanding of why they remain probably one of the best rock bands in history. It makes me wish I had been born 15 years earlier (I’m 23) so I could have seen them perform; music that stretches boundaries the way Led Zeppelin’s did and still does is hard to find. Ballads, opuses, ditties, driving rock — it’s all here, and assembled in such a way that each CD has a different feel that successfully spans the more than 10 years that LZ were making music. This is not solely an essential item for the Led Zeppelin fan, but for the music fan as well.
