A keepsake slipcase, making "Led Zeppelin" a fitting tribute to the legendary sound of the band.
In 1968, the electrifying potion of musical greats Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham exploded onto the rock scene as Led Zeppelin. Their palpable, walloping beats in combination with their extraordinarily lyrical atmospherics quickly transcended the boundaries of traditional music to earn them the moniker "Gods of Rock." In "Led Zeppelin: Shadow Taller Than Our Souls," Charles R. Cross looks past the over-told saga of Zeppelin's offstage antics to reexamine the reasons why the band garnered millions of screaming fans in the first place--the exquisite depth of their music. In an unprecedented format filled with interactive, historic memorabilia, this charged piece of rock criticism surveys Zeppelin's entire career, explores their landmark contributions, album by album, and displays stunning photographs and significant ephemera.
