A milestone in a new guise: With "How The West Was Won" Led Zeppelin re-released their legendary 2018 live recording, completely remastered and for the first time ever on vinyl.
"How The West Was Won" brings together concert recordings of the band from 25 and 27 June 1972 in the Los Angeles Forum and the Long Beach Arena.
For 30 years, these recordings were only available as illegal bootleg until they were first officially released in 2003. Now no one less than Jimmy Page took another look at the recordings.
The album contains a total of 18 tracks, including classics such as "Stairway To Heaven" and "What Is And What Should Never Be", a more than 25-minute version of "Dazed And Confused" and a 23-minute medley from "Whole Lotta Love", "Boogie Chillun", "Let's Have a Party", "Hello Mary Lou" and "Going Down Slow".
Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham also played songs on the two gigs that only appeared nine months later on the album "Houses Of The Holy": "Over The Hills And Far Away", "Dancing Days" and "The Ocean".
The remastered "How The West Was Won" is now available as Blu-ray audio, a 3-CDs set, a 4-LP set and a super deluxe box set. This contains the album on three CDs and four LPs as well as a DVD of the album in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and PCM stereo with additional photo gallery.
In addition, there is a download card for all stereo audio in a resolution of 96 kHz/24 bit, a book with rare and sometimes never shown photos and a print of the original cover, of which the first 30,000 copies are individually numbered.
A special live document, a great collection of songs, a musical journey through time. Rock legends Led Zeppelin present "How The West Was Won" in a new sound.
