Alfred Music Publishing Releases Additional Led Zeppelin Platinum Album Editions for Drums

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, July 08, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the and exclusive print publisher for Led Zeppelin and thousands of other artists, is thrilled to add to its catalog of authentic Led Zeppelin drum transcription books with the album-matching folios of the band’s seventh and eighth studio albums.

Led Zeppelin: Presence Platinum Drums and Led Zeppelin: In Through the Out Door Platinum Drums draw from more than 30 years of documentation, interviews, and recorded footage. These drum transcription books deliver unprecedented accuracy, with vintage Zeppelin photographs and historical forewords by Guitar World magazine’s editor-in-chief, Brad Tolinski, that chronicle the history of one of classic rock’s greatest bands. This songbook series includes accurate drum transcriptions that will help drummers learn the genius behind John Bonham’s iconic grooves and fills. Drum notation keys are also included.

Led Zeppelin: Presence Platinum Drums is the band’s seventh studio album. Released in 1976, it is arguably the band's darkest and most personal, and it continued the rock band’s trend of reaching No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and reaching Multi-Platinum status in the U.S. Titles: Achilles Last Stand * For Your Life * Royal Orleans * Nobody’s Fault But Mine * Candy Store Rock * Hots on for Nowhere * Tea for One.

Led Zeppelin: In Through the Out Door Platinum Drums is the band’s eighth studio album and the final appearance of drummer John Bonham before his untimely passing. Released in 1979, the album showcases the band's “poppier” side, and thus performed extremely well on numerous charts worldwide, as well as reaching Multi-Platinum status in three countries. Titles: In the Evening * South Bound Saurez * Fool in the Rain * Hot Dog * Carouselambra * All My Love * I'm Gonna Crawl.

Led Zeppelin: Presence Platinum Drums and Led Zeppelin: In Through the Out Door Platinum Drums are now available for $19.99 each. Also available are albums I-V from the Led Zeppelin Platinum Drums catalog. Pick up your copies at a local music retail store, or buy them today at alfred.com.
