Zep's Presence, In Through the Out Door, and Coda

Presence
The companion audio disc that accompanies Presence has five unreleased reference mixes from the sessions, which reveal works in progress. Along with alternate incarnations of For Your Life Achilles Last Stand and Royal Orleans, there is also the previously unheard instrumental curiously titled 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod).

1. Two Ones Are Won
2. For Your Life (Reference Mix)
3. 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod)
4. Royal Orleans (Reference Mix)
5. Hots On For Nowhere (Reference Mix)

In Through the Out Door
The album's companion audio disc features an unreleased rough mix of every track from the original album, including early versions with working titles such as The Hook (All My Love), The Epic (Carouselambra), and Blot (I'm Gonna Crawl).

1. In The Evening (Rough Mix)
2. Southbound Piano (South Bound Saurez)
3. Fool In The Rain (Rough Mix)
4. Hot Dog (Rough Mix)
5. The Epic (Carouselambra - Rough Mix)
6. The Hook (All My Love - Rough Mix)
7. Blot (I m Gonna Crawl - Rough Mix)

Coda
The reissue campaign ends with a double-barrel blast of Led. Coda will be the only Led Zeppelin deluxe edition to include two companion discs, featuring 15 tracks recorded between 1968 and 1974. The oldest song in the collection is also perhaps the most interesting. The frenetic blues jam Sugar Mama was recorded in 1968 at Olympic Studios during sessions for the band s eponymous debut. The song was completed but never officially released until now. Baby Come On Home from the same session is also included in the set. Also included is the previously unreleased St. Tristan's Sword, a rollicking instrumental recorded during the Led Zeppelin III sessions in 1970.

1. We re Gonna Groove (Alternate Mix)
2. If It Keeps On Raining (When The Levee Breaks - Rough Mix)
3. Bonzo s Montreux (Mix Construction In Progress)
4. Baby Come On Home
5. Sugar Mama (Mix)
6. Poor Tom (Instrumental Mix)
7. Travelling Riverside Blues (BBC Session)
8. Hey, Hey, What Can I Do

1. Four Hands (Four Sticks - Bombay Orchestra)
2. Friends (Bombay Orchestra)
3. St. Tristan s Sword (Rough Mix)
4. Desire (The Wanton Song - Rough Mix)
5. Bring It On Home (Rough Mix)
6. Walter s Walk (Rough Mix)
7. Everybody Makes It Through (In The Light - Rough Mix)

When CODA came out, it was something of a let down. This expanded and remastered version looks set to redress that. A final mopping up of all the loose ends and gems, hopefully. This is the only place on the web I can find anything about it, at the moment. Your sources are clearly impressive.

Yup, I'm a bit surprised to find I'm twitching about Coda most of all. Rather interested.

As a fairly casual Led Zep fan I've never listened to any of these last three albums, though I own the first six. How do they compare / are they essential?

IMO 'Presence' is the better.

I have a soft spot for 'In Through The Door', as that's kinda where I came in (ahem...).

I'd bought older albums, during their quieter years and having seen them at one of their 1979 Knebworth shows, dashed out and actually got that one on the day of release. It is weak and breaks no ground. In places it sounds a bit... prog-lite.

Presence is IMHO better than Houses of the Holy, Tea For One is an unsung classic, a cut above though similar in style to since I've Been Loving You and Achilles Last Stand is Zep at their Sturmiest Drangiest though personally I've never warmed to it
In Through The out Door sounds horribly dated but actually has some lovely songs on it , I even like Hotdog though i suspect I'm in a minority. I'm interested to hear the demos though I suspect they will still sound dated as someone had just given JPJ a Yamaha GX1 for xmas.

Even in its expanded form I can't really recommend Coda

I thought Presence was good especially since it contains "Candy Store Rock". In Through the Out Door less so, with bad attempts at "new wave" abound but then there's the touching "All of my Love" however.

I've been disappointed with the extra tracks on all of these releases, fairly uninspiring in general, but I must say the extra tracks on Coda seem worth it.

The alt version of 'In the Light' on PG is really good too.

being a Zep freak, I am def looking forward to these.
However, there is some sadness with what Page had been picking for the 2nd companion discs.
There have been some gems, but rough mixes aren't doing it for me.
They're simply unglossed versions of the same takes I have burned into my psyche.
I wanted ALT takes of these songs, and outtakes & unreleased songs...We got some, but I have all the studio outtakes on boots, and there is so much more out there.
...for the new releases of the final 3, I am again excited, and wonder how diff any of the songs will be.
There is the St Tristans Sword song, and some other...Nob?....I dunno what these'll be, but am excited still.
My big hope is that they'll release the "full" version of All My Love.
Its missing the synth solo from JPJ in the middle, but where the song fades on the original, the full version kicks into overdrive for another 3 minutes or so with Page soaring and flying, while Plant keeps singing about being lonely...its great...It was a joy and revelation when I 1st heard it 25 years ago, and I hope the rest of the world gets to enjoy it to.
Here it is for you all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtozK953yas
