About this title

Synopsis:

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Zeppelin’s first album release, Led Zeppelin offers generations of fans a critical, retrospective re-evaluation of the band’s mystery-enshrouded saga, as told by New York Times bestselling biographer Charles R. Cross. Cross, the author of Heavier Than Heaven: The Biography of Kurt Cobain, analyzes each of Zeppelin’s nine albums, arguing that the Gods of Rock sold millions because of the intricate musical depth that they brought to so many genres—not just the thudding, metal aspect of their sound.

From the Back Cover:

This commemorative edition includes:

  • 90 full-color and black-and-white images, including some never-before-published and rare photos.
  • 20 interactive and rare memorabilia, including tickets, posters, stickers, and more!
  • An audio CD containing a historically significant interview with Jimmy Page.
  • A keepsake slipcase, making Led Zeppelin a fitting tribute to the legendary sound of the band.

In 1968, the electrifying potion of musical greats Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham exploded onto the rock scene as Led Zeppelin. Their palpable, walloping beats in combination with their extraordinarily lyrical atmospherics quickly transcended the boundaries of traditional music to earn them the moniker "Gods of Rock." In Led Zeppelin: Shadow Taller Than Our Souls, Charles R. Cross looks past the over-told saga of Zeppelin's offstage antics to reexamine the reasons why the band garnered millions of screaming fans in the first place—the exquisite depth of their music. In an unprecedented format filled with interactive, historic memorabilia, this charged piece of rock criticism surveys Zeppelin's entire career, explores their landmark contributions, album by album, and displays stunning photographs and significant ephemera.
