This has already included the Then As It Was – Led Zeppelin At Knebworth book which is still available.  The next planned title will be Led Zeppelin Feather In The Wind – Over Europe 1980 which is due for publication in September.

Look out also for one off exclusives such as the recent Classic Album Cover Stamps first day covers. We also plan to have available a series of TBL exclusive T. shirt designs following on from last year’s Still The Only Way To Fly design.


So as you can see, there’s a variety of activity to make the Tight but Loose web site an essential interactive Zep browsing experience.

This is a new era for Tight But Loose and we feel there has never been a better time to be served by the TBL experience.

So make sure you visit the site regularly, subscribe to the TBL magazine and invest in the limited edition books to enjoy the full benefits of what Tight But Loose Publishing has to offer in 2010 and beyond.


The objective we will be working towards is to extend the original TBL remit originally formulated over 30 years ago – that is to form a platform of communication between Led Zeppelin fans the world over and take every reader back to the music with fresh perspective.

To that end we will be working continually to make Tight But Loose in all its formats, synonymous with being a Led Zeppelin fan.


Ever onward – ever essential.


We thank you in advance for your support.
