Led Zeppelin's 'How The West Was Won' To Be Reissued
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page is continuing his project to reissue Zeppelin's back catalog with the band's live album, How the West Was Won.
The album entered the charts at No. 1 when it was released in June of 2003. But the actual recordings that made up the album date back to 1972, and a pair of shows Led Zeppelin played in Southern California.
Page supervised the remastering with a release planned for this coming September, right before Led Zeppelin's 50th anniversary.
How the West Was Won contains audio from Led Zeppelin concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena. The audio is blended together and sequenced to replicate the setlist of a single Zeppelin show from that era.
The reissued package includes remastered audio on three CDs or four vinyl LPs. There's a DVD of the album with a photo gallery and a book filled with rare and previously unpublished photos from both concerts. The first 30,000 sets will include individually numbered high-quality prints of the original album cover.
The set is due out on March 23, 2018.
