Mothership (Very Best Of) 180g 33RPM 4LP Box Set
It's rare that a group can truly rock today's world, but the arrival of 'Mothership,' the first-ever comprehensive 4LP Led Zeppelin compilation qualifies.
Produced by Jimmy Page and mixed by Kevin Shirley, 'Mothership's' 24 monolithic tracks were selected and sequenced by the band, who also oversaw the painstaking remastering.
Spanning their epic career, the unprecedented collection pulls immortal songs from all eight of the band's classic studio albums, one of the 20th century's most enduring bodies of musical work. Arguably the most influential and innovative rock band ever, Led Zeppelin has sold over 200 million records worldwide. They continue to inspire successive generations with their passionate, groundbreaking, genre-transcendent, mystic, heavy and blues-infused rock 'n roll. Forty years since they formed, the song indeed remains the same.
This release features new liner notes by David Fricke and cover designed by noted Los Angeles artist Shepard Fairey.
