    Default What’s the best sounding Zep on vinyl?

    Been enjoying my 25+ yr old copies of Zep on vinyl recently, don’t ever want to get rid of them but with all the remasters over the years wondering which vinyl versions are thought to sound best?
    I’ve heard the recent reissues on vinyl are pretty good?

    My reference (for mastering quality and zeppelin “groove”) have been the pre-remastered Barry Diament CD’s, which sound great.
    But it’s not vinyl.

    Any thoughts welcome chaps.
    *EDIT*

    Meaning more which VERSION/ which remaster is the best sounding of their catalogue on vinyl, rather than individual albums.
    The recent 3LP reissue vs...others.
    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    you know my views plums are best but the latest deluxe issues are a near second, and may be better, especially if said plum has had a lot of use...they are 50 years old. only first 4 albums had plums tmk

    Not always the case with Plumbs. I had 1st issue YES albums on plumbs, also had the early 70's repress on the Green/Orange label, though the represses sounded better to my ears.

    I don't think any Zep albums sound great on vinyl
    I think maybe Song remains the Same is the best of the bunch
    I Love Zep - great songs/music but the finished product for me is a let down - Jimmy Page should have got Bruce Botnik in to sort his remasters!!

    I may have gone too far listening to the quality of the sound - rather than listening to just the music/its difficult, but I find it very hard to listen to music I love that disappoints when played at home

    My down fail is listening to very well presented Remastered CD issues of my fave Rock bands. Did not take long to come to the conclusion what i though sounded best. However Im trying my best to just listen to music these days, giving vinyl another last chance..but old 70's Rock music is no longer in the equation.
