Just last month, we mentioned that HDtracks had added reissued deluxe editions of the first three Led Zeppelin albums to its growing lineup of high-resolution audio options. Well, it looks like a lot of you still have a "whole lotta love" for this classic rock band.
The company just announced its top 10 list of high-res downloads for the second quarter of 2014, which includes Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III. The results were compiled using data covering all of the downloads from April 1 through June 30, 2014. Even though all three of these Atlantic Records recordings weren't released on HDtracks until just last month, they still managed to take the top three spots.
Of course, that's probably because these three albums are bursting with some of the most memorable songs in rock history, including "Heartbreaker," "Dazed and Confused," "Thank You," "The Immigrant Song."
According to HDtracks, Coldplay's Ghost Stories came in at number four, with Norah Jones' Come Away with Me rounding out the top five. The rest of the top 10 list includes (in this order): Turn Blue from the Black Keys, Michael Jackson's Xscape, Made in Japan from Deep Purple, Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, and the self-titled album from Natalie Merchant.
All 10 of the above albums can be found on HDtracks via DRM-free CD and DVD-Audio quality downloads. Each of the Led Zeppelin albums are available with 96kHz/24-bit sample rates.
Founded in 2008 by three-time Grammy nominee, record producer and musician, David Chesky, and his brother Norman, HDtracks offers DRM-free CD and DVD-Audio-quality downloads, in both 24/96- and 24/192-bit sampling rates. The company also recently announced TheAudioBuzz.com, a new blog for music fans. Check out the site for news on new releases, as well as industry info and interviews.
