Led Zeppelin are back in the Billboard Top 10 with their reissues last week of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin 2 and Led Zeppelin 3.
Led Zeppelin was the best seller of the three with 37,000 copies, landing at number-seven. Led Zeppelin 2 is at number-nine with 34,000 out the door, and Led Zeppelin 3 rounds out the Top 10 with 32,000 sold. This makes them the first act to lock in three concurrent Top 10 albums since Whitney Houston nailed down three slots following her death in March 2012.
The Zeppelin albums also occupy the top three spots on the Billboard Catalog and Internet charts. And all three albums have also cracked the Top 20 in the U.K., Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Japan and New Zealand.
Asked if this closes the chapter on Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page told us it does when it comes to the studio albums. However -- although he wouldn't give us specific details -- he did say he found other rarities while putting together the bonus discs that accompany each of the nine studio albums, and all of those will be out no later than the end of next year.
