"This two disc set consists of nothing more than the "No Introduction..." set:
(Lovin' Up a Storm, Everything I Do is Wrong, Think It Over, Boll Weevil Song, Livin' Lovin' Wreck, One Long Kiss Dixie Fried, Down the Line,Fabulous, Breathless, Rave On, Lonely Weekend, Burn Up, and Everyday), so buy the new remaster of that album with the bonus tracks featuring Page, Jones, and Bonham (they are the best tracks on the album anyhow). The first disc here is of less than impressive sound quality not to mention that over half the tracks actually feature Albert Lee on guitar, not Jimmy Page.
The redemtion comes on the second disc of tribute songs by unknown artists. The artists themselves are not famous and are never going to be, their music is less than inspirational but they cover songs we all know and love (Babe, I'm gonna leave you, brony'aur, In my time of dying, and, yes, stairway and kashmir). There are a few gems among them. If you need to own every CD with Led Zeppelin ties then go for it, otherwise save your dough, Joe."
