The Complete BBC Sessions is a compilation album by English hard rock band Led Zeppelin, released in September 2016 via Atlantic Records.

The album is an expansion of the 1997 BBC Sessions release, and comprises studio sessions and live recordings for the BBC. Countless bootlegs of the recordings have circulated for years prior to the welcomed official release.

This expanded edition of the band’s 1997 album includes remastered versions of the original two dozen tracks plus nine additional songs left off the record at the time. The sessions include six appearances on various BBC programs — some recorded in the studio, some recorded live (like the 1971 London concert that makes up disc two).

Most of the new tracks are repeats of songs already found on the earlier set in different form — two more versions of “Communication Breakdown” and “What Is And What Should Never Be” are added, as is an 11-minute “Dazed And Confused” — with the exception of the instrumental “White Summer” (released in edited form on the 1990 box set and in full on 2015’s Coda reissue) and “Sunshine Woman”, a bluesy vamp from 1969 that was never recorded by the band.

Through it all, Led Zeppelin tear through their catalog with a dynamism that borders on ferocity. Robert Plant grunts and growls with a sexual hunger that consistently weaves in and out of Jimmy Page‘s guitar. Check out his room-shaking wails on the showstopping “How Many More Times” or his guttural moans on the positively mind-warping “Dazed And Confused” from the 1971 concert.

This is Zeppelin where they still sound hungry, determined, anxious and aroused. The best songs here are open to personal preferences but “You Shook Me”, “The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair”, “Travelling Riverside Blues”, “Communication Breakdown” — are essential pieces from the band’s formative years.

Check out the tracks: Communication Breakdown; What Is And What Should Never Be; How Many More Times; Black Dog; Stairway To Heaven; and You Shook Me; as well as the album trailer.

This compilation was produced and remastered under the supervision of Jimmy Page.

This 5 LP and 3 CD box set, remastered on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl and is individually numbered. This box set also includes a digital download of the album, a 44 page booklet, and was pressed in Europe.
