2 stars A GOOD OVERVIEW (PART TWO)

I do not really understand Jimmy (who did the track selection) in releasing a compilation of what's called their "latter days". I consider two periods in Led Zep history : the first one till "Houses Of The Holy" and a second one starting with "Physical Grafitti". The second one is far to reach the creativity of the first one, so it is rather normal that this compilation is somewhat useless.

One has to remember as well that the wonderful "Remasters" featured each track available here (plus "D'Yer Make'r"). So really, there no need to buy this one.

This album can be purchased with its little brother "The Early Days". In this packaged version, disc two (the latter days) features a video of a live performance of "Over The Hills And Far Away". A trick I guess for selling it to completionist.

In terms of compilation, I can only advice to stick to "Remasters" which is really a superb intro for the band and which will satisfy any "curious" willing to discover Led Zep.

Two stars.
