Led Zeppelin Announces ‘IV’ and ‘Houses of the Holy’ Box Set Date and Details
Led Zeppelin has released the track listings for the next two projects in its well-received album-by-album reissue campaign, 'IV' and 'Houses of the Holy.' As with 'I-III,' each will again be offered in deluxe editions with a bonus disc of unreleased material as well as a "Super Deluxe" box set edition.
Additional audio for the 23-times platinum 'IV' includes alternate mixes of 'Misty Mountain Hop,' 'Four Sticks,' 'The Battle Of Evermore,' 'Going To California' and, most notably, 'Stairway To Heaven.' The 11-million-selling follow up 'Houses of the Holy,' meanwhile, will feature seven unreleased tracks on the companion audio disc -- including rough and working mixes for 'The Ocean' and 'Dancing Days,' a guitar mix backing track for 'Over The Hills And Far Away' and a version of 'The Rain Song' without piano. Complete track listings for both are below.
'IV' and 'Houses of the Holy,' due on October 28 via Atlantic/Swan Song, will again be available in a variety of formats. Those choices include single disc (without the bonus audio) and two-disc deluxe editions, as well as single vinyl and two-LP deluxe edition vinyl, digital downloads and a super deluxe box set that includes the remastered album, bonus disc, remastered vinyl, high-def audio download, hard-bound 80-page book and album-cover print.
Jimmy Page again personally oversaw the remastering process, and collected each reissue's unreleased material. The earlier sets devoted to 'I-III' each debuted in the Billboard Top 10 in June.
