In Through The Out Door

  (Item #: ledzeinthr_1907_11) 

Our Price: $119.99
Sale Price: $99.00 (You save $20.99 / 17%)


  • You'll find solid Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides of this outstanding copy of Zep's final release - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • It's all here: huge amounts of rock-solid bass, grungy guitars, breathy, natural vocals, and jump out of the speakers presence and energy
  • Fool In The Rain and All My Love are two of the best, and best sounding, tracks on the album
  • "The album's opening number, 'In the Evening,' with its stomping rhythms and heavy, staggered riffs, suggests that Zeppelin haven't deviated from their course, but by the time the rolling shuffle of 'South Bound Suarez' kicks into gear, it's apparent that they've regained their sense of humor."

Led Zeppelin
Physical Graffiti

  (Item #: ledzephysi_1911) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • Here's the energy, presence, and sheer rock and roll power that lets this music come to life like you never imagined - especially if you have the Classic reissue, the no-doubt-awful Page Remaster, or any other pressings that are not early and not made in the USA
  • 5 stars: "...its appeal lies in its great sprawl, since it captures elements of the band's personality rarely showcased elsewhere — and even at its worst, Physical Graffiti towers above its hard rock peers of the mid-'70s."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "It's still a jaw-dropping experience, the musical equal to Crosby, Stills & Nash or Déjà Vu, and only a shade less important than either of them."

  • 4 stars: "... this feels both heavier and lighter than the debut. Heavier in that this sounds big and powerful, driven by mastodon riffs that aim straight of the gut. Lighter in that there's a nimbleness to the attack... it's hard not to marvel at these two frontmen, and hard not to be sucked into the vortex of some of the grandest hard rock ever made."
