In 1968, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant formed Led Zeppelin, one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music. The band has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide with a celebrated catalog including such landmark songs as "Whole Lotta Love," "Kashmir," "Rock And Roll," "When The Levee Breaks" and "Stairway To Heaven." The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Page brought in Plant, Bonham and Jones to tour as The New Yardbirds. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released its self-titled debut. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which the group was widely considered to be the biggest rock band in the world.

Taken from various London Broadcast venues and carried over the European airwaves by the BBC, these 1969-71 BBC Sessions are the authorized release of songs that have been long known and available only via bootlegging. Personally compiled by guitarist Jimmy Page, this collection captures the band without the use of overdubbing: live, raw and in their prime. It showcases many songs that were on their way to becoming rock standards plus allows the listener to hear songs that were still being worked out. A case in point is the inclusion of Stairway To Heaven, performed here eight months prior to it’s official studio release on Led Zeppelin IV.
