Led Zeppelin II Sampler - Eeklair Multitrack Mixes [no label, 1CD]
In January 2012, Empress Valley put out a four-CD set, The Making Of Led Zeppelin II. There are four songs - Whole Lotta Love, Heartbreaker, Ramble On, and What Is And What Should Never Be - one on each disc. And each disc has eight isolated tracks - from the multitrack master - featuring vocals, guitars, drums, bass and percussion.
It is likely Eeklair took a set of the multitracks and remixed them into this sampler.
This is what Eeklair noted:
Well, I’m throwing my hat into the ring. I think I would make a good steward of the Led Zeppelin Multitracks because…
bear in mind, the effects used such as delay and reverb are modern sounding. NO HISS REDUCTION was applied to these results…
Hope you like it Jimmy, it’s for you.
Eeklair also added:
I only have the four tunes, it’s up to whomsoever leaked the multitracks to deliver us anything more… It’s a labour of love, and I’m only too enthused to mix the stuff… Maybe soon Jimmy will unleash the rest of the album…
Thanks to Eeklair for the efforts and for sharing the tracks on Demonoid.
This is what music fan tmtomh commented at Demonoid:
Thanks for this - you clearly put a lot of hard work into it. Whole Lotta Love and WIAWSNB sound great - the full ending in WLL is really terrific. The album edit version of Heartbreaker, though, sounds just a little dull and rolled off, and both versions of Heartbreaker seem to have strange volume fluctuations around 0:45. Did you run into any particular challenges or difficulty when working with this track?
Another fan, iliketorock, posted:
Could you turn the BASS UP about 12db? I want break the windows out… Just finished the whole thing, Heartbreaker and no Living Loving Maid…WOW. RUN AWAY RUN AWAY.
