The Mothership has landed

Wednesday, November 14, 2007 | 10:15 PM

MothershipI was an enormous Led Zep fan (and I don't know many of my peers who weren't), but every re-release makes me wonder: Is this merely another attempt to cash in on boomer nostalgia release, or something more worthwhile?

Early evidence suggests that this may be something a bit more interesting: Led Zeppelin's Mothership 2CD/1DVD.

A few items worth mentioning: For the musical purists out there, all of the reviews about the quality of the remastering have been glowing. So if you want to hear the clearest fuzz rock guitar (?!) played by the master of the genre, this may be be for you.

The other noteworthy aspect of this is the price: Some in the music industry have gotten it through their thick cro-mag skulls that $15 for a CD ain't gonna fly no mo'.

This compilation of two CDs and a DVD for $20 on the other hand, will. This disc is killing it in Amazon sales rankings: Sales Rank: #12 in Music
#1 in     Music > Classic Rock > Arena Rock
#1 in     Music > Hard Rock & Metal
#1 in     Music > Rock > Blues Rock

Not too shabby for what is essentially a repackaged greatest hits.
(Gee, do you think prices matter to consumers?)

Video of Black Dog will be familiar with anyone who saw The Song Remains the Same 14 times in high school . . .

LOL, except when he holds out the mic, Robert Plant looks like he has no clue where he is. He probably sees stars all around him..........excellent video.
