Review(s)
 
The LZII pre-mixdown tapes. A short, few minute excerpt was released in 2000, but now we have the complete tracks. Each of the four songs are divided into eight separate tracks. Whole Lotta Love is no fading at the end, presenting fantastic Theremin coda (perhaps that was kept on the reel for possible use but then left out during mixing). What Is And What Should Never Be has also longer ending and the song abruptly ends with a soft coda, similar to live arrangement. Heartbreaker is just terrific - it looks like Jimmy is working hardly on middle guitar section trying differences in his solo. We can finally hear how Ramble On is composed. The first take shows basic acoustic guitar line, then two electric guitar overdub takes followed. A gem, no doubt and such a historic piece of music. An extremely rare example of how the band working in the studio! Recorded on 8-track equipment these are not mixdown tracks, just individual tracks. The story is the multi reels were digitized into a pro tools session years ago and these leaked from that. Complete LZ II outtakes supposed to be exists but still not released as a definitive.
No records returned.
