The MOTHERSHIP has Landed!


I received my copy of Mothership this week and what can I say - its Zeppelin at their finest - only BETTER. These 2 CDs/DVD have been remastered to bring out the best in the four British blokes that changed musical history back in the 70's.

To quote Andrew Bartlett:

For its part, Mothership's crisper, warmer audio owes its heft to the troika of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, who helped oversee the mastering, bringing out untold shades even in the throes of "Heartbreaker" and the sinews of "No Quarter." It's an impressive sonic leap. Where tinny high-ends and muffled lows used to co-exist, fatter and louder depths prevail.

Undertstandably some of us may see our personal favortie missing - most noteably for me "The Ocean". But the songs were handpicked by Plant and Page so I guess I will have to email my complainsts to one them.

and guess what: I AM GIVING AWAY the DVD disc of this set to YOU(?). If you are interested let me know in a comment and if there is more than one person I will diplomatically pull a name from a hat on Monday or Tuesday next week and send it to you. Sorry, this time I am keeping the 2 CD discs for myself, but I am expecting some other gems to review and will be giving lots of good stuff away in the near future...its so fun to share music!!!

So Neil, Patti and Bob are my favourite solo artists, but Led Zeppelin are my favourite band. And I'm first in line. Is that good enough?! ;P

Oh well, I'm probably too far away anyway, but I'll definitely get this one for Christmas. "Fatter and louder depths" to the sound? I didn't think it was possible!

Angie, NO way! You are not too far! I send stuff to Oz often cause I have a special friend in Melbourne. I hope you win!!!!

Angie said...

Well in that case, I hope I win too! :P

I love The Ocean too, but another one they left out for me is Gallows Pole. Robert sings so well in it, and I just love the banjo playing in that song.

I appreciate you kindness but I am hoping to get this for Christmas. If I don't, I will cry and then go buy it to cheer myself up.

I can't believe I am going to be patient enough to wait but I must...
