All 4 cd's are awesome. Classic rock and Metal Three Piece Jazz covers/arrangements plus lots of originals. I just stumbled onto these a month ago and have played nothing else since. Love it and sounds great on my system.
Thanks for posting this....I'm always on the lookout for something new and exciting. After reading a little about Alex I just streamed 'War Pigs' from 'Standards' and am anticipating hearing more from this band.

I decided to listen to only vinyl tonight and am on Side 1 of Weather Report- 'Sportin' Life'. I forgot how good vinyl can sound and this is a great one for re-aquainting myself with my albums.

This.

I'll have to say, even though I've been familiar with most all of the songs though the years, I've never owned the Physical Graffiti album until this remaster. And I've discovered why many Zep fans say it's their best - the songs are fantastic from beginning to end, and it holds up as a cohesive double LP experience. A true masterpiece.

ButI agree with Lehner - can't praise the sound quality or extras.
