Released: 27th Oct 2014


remastered for 2014 by jimmy page, ‘houses of the holy’s thundering blues-rock & ringing, folky hooks sound better than ever.

the eclecticism of page & robert plant's songwriting sounds coherent & natural throughout – even on the pseudo-reggae of ‘d'yer mak'er’ & the affectionate james brown send-up ‘the crunge’. ‘the rain song’ is one of zep's finest moments, featuring a soaring string arrangement & a gentle, aching melody. ‘the ocean’ is just as good, starting with a heavy, funky guitar groove before slamming into an a cappella section & ending with a swinging, doo wop-flavoured rave-up. expanded editions include alternate mixes of many of the album’s tracks. ***the boxset contains the 2cd & 2lp versions of the album, download for the album & bonus tracks, numbered print of the original album artwork, replica of the original atlantic press kit & a hardback book containing rare photos & memorabilia***.
