'Led Zeppelin: Shadows Taller Than Our Souls' Book Due This Week

October 5, 2009

It, a division of HarperCollins, will release "Led Zeppelin: Shadows Taller Than Our Souls", the latest book by Charles R. Cross, on October 6.

According to the Seattle Times, "Shadows Taller Than Our Souls" is largely a biography arranged in an interactive format. Each chapter contains removable reproductions of ticket stubs, set lists, posters, magazine covers, backstage passes and a set of news releases from the 1969 Seattle Pop Festival, at which LED ZEPPELIN performed with CHUCK BERRY, THE BYRDS, SANTANA, and IKE AND TINA TURNER and others. The book also comes with an audio CD of a rare, early interview with Jimmy Page.

The volume's nine chapters are named for the band's albums and cover that corresponding period of time. The intent, Cross said, was to explain the circumstances in which the albums were recorded.
