Explore the Physical Graffiti Building

Led Zeppelin is promoting the release of the remastered, 40th anniversary edition of the album Physical Graffiti with an interactive video. In the video, you can go inside through the windows of 96 and 98 St. Mark's Place in New York City, which were photographed for the album cover. The scenes inside are fictional, and range from modern day partying to concert footage to surreal dream sequences. You can go from room to room, all to the tune of “Brandy & Coke (Trampled Under Foot),” which is a remastered alternative version of “Trampled Under Foot.”

Try it out for yourself. When I tried it, the music was somewhat glitchy, which might be due to many people using it at once. I found letting it load for a longer time helped. -via Buzzfeed

Wonder if it being the 40th anniversary will make my original LP worth more...

That's the album that reminds me the most of what's missing with CDs and even more with individual MP3 downloads. There's a whole other dimension to listening to music on a painstakingly-mastered album, song order and such, and in particular the songs before/after you have to swap the disks, and the requisite long and silent pause in there, which you don't get on CD, or does anyone even know is supposed to be there.

Tool tries to do a bit of that today with their CDs, but it's still a far cry.

Trampled Under Foot seems to have just as much relevance today as it ever did... Finger Eleven's "Paralyzer" sounds like almost a direct knock-off, while
most of Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out" is awfully similar, too. Each song can be sampled on YouTube for anyone interested in comparing them.
