Led Zeppelin have produced some of the most acclaimed albums in recording history and are considered among the greatest musicians of all time, together as a band and through their individual solo projects. The band formed in 1968, from the then recently disbanded group The Yardbirds, when guitarist Jimmy Page brought in Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones and began touring as The New Yardbirds before changing their name to Led Zeppelin. In 1969, their self-titled debut album was released and is regarded as one of the pivotal records in the creation of heavy rock. They have sold over 300 million albums worldwide and in 1995, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
On November 11, Atlantic/Swan Song/Rhino Entertainment will release the Led Zeppelin Limited-Edition Boxed Set of Mini-LP Replica CDs, which includes Led Zeppelin (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), Led Zeppelin IV (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973), Physical Graffiti (1975), Presence (1976), The Song Remains the Same (1976), In Through the Out Door (1979), and Coda (1982).
