Led Zeppelin: Shadows Taller Than Our Souls

Everyone needs to give Charles R. Cross an A+ for originality. What would possibly give a new Led Zeppelin biography an original edge in the oversaturated world these days? Why, of course, reproduced Led Zeppelin memorabilia. All joking aside, in this world of 50 million biographies about Led Zeppelin, authors strive to achieve an edge, to emerge in front of the rest. All of the stories that can be told have been told and all of the pictures have been posted. What's new? What can give the average reader the experience of living in the time of the 1960s and 1970s when Led Zeppelin was still in existance? Reproduced Led Zeppelin memorabilia.

The stories and facts contained with the 104 pages of the hardcovered book Led Zeppelin: Shadows Taller Than Our Souls are top-notch. It contains 90 full-color and black-and-white images, including some never-before-published and rare photos. This book is an excellent resource for knowledge on Led Zeppelin. Every time I pick it up, intending on viewing a couple pages, I end up flipping through the entire book.

This book definitely has a permanent place on my coffee table, with it's colorful covers and colorful inside. A+, Mr. Cross. A+!!!
