Japanese bootleg label Empress Valley is preparing to release a limited edition 12-CD box set of Led Zeppelin’s 1972 tour of Japan.
An email sent by a bootleg distributor in Japan earlier this week gave some details of the upcoming release.
The distributor said that the box set will feature upgrades to the audio quality of shows, previously unreleased sources, and the lowest generation sources ever released for the shows.
The limited edition box set, which hasn’t yet been named, is expected to be released in the first half of June. The email from a distributor that was seen by LedZepNews priced the box set at $225.
Each CD in the box set will be housed in a paper sleeve and the set will come with a photo card in an envelope. The box set will come in two different art styles: The Campaign and The Overture.
Here are the dates of the shows on Led Zeppelin’s 1972 tour of Japan:
October 2 – Budokan Hall, Tokyo
October 3 – Budokan Hall, Tokyo
October 4 – Festival Hall, Osaka
October 5 – Kokaido, Nagoya
October 9 – Festival Hall, Osaka
October 10 – Kyoto Kaikan, Kyoto
Empress Valley recently released soundboard recordings from Led Zeppelin’s tour of Japan in the previous year: 1971.
The label released “Black Dog” from Led Zeppelin’s September 28, 1971 show in Osaka, Japan.
