Led Zeppelin Return to the UK Album Chart

Led Zeppelin made a return to the album chart last night with the help of 3 classic records from their newly released remaster series.

Jimmy Page worked tirelessly curating the restored editions of the first three Zeppelin records, all of which feature companion discs containing never released before material.

The highest placed was their self-title debut album, first released in 1969, which landed at number 7. Next was Led Zeppenlin III, released in 1970, which made number 10, while Led Zeppelin II, also released in 1969, reached number 12.

Page recently told TeamRock the remaster programme was an "epic task."

However, he added:

"There's so many treats. People who love Led Zeppelin, who listen intently, are going to get so much out of this."

Zeppelin's return to the album charts was during a week in which 9 out of 20 of the best selling records were from classic artists. Albums from Paul Weller, Hank Marvin, James and Vera Lynn also  featured alongside the trio of Zeppelin reissues which make up the Top 20
