Latter Days: The Best of Led Zeppelin Volume Two is a single compilation release (One compact disc or double vinyl album) by English rock group Led Zeppelin, issued by Atlantic Records on 21 March 2000.
It features a total of 11 tracks selected by Jimmy Page, to highlight the band's later career from 1973 through to 1979. As an added bonus, the CD format is enhanced with the addition of a promotional music video, 'Kashmir'. This video contains a combined footage recorded on the evenings of 24 and 25 May 1975, in Earls Court Arena, London. The footage used was the same as the one projected on the giant Ediphor screen at the venue, and synced to the remastered track. Footage of 'Kashmir' was also added to the Led Zeppelin DVD in 2003.
The album debuted at number 81 on the Billboard's 200 Albums chart, and charted for a total of twenty-six weeks. It was preceded by Early Days (1999), rounding out the best of the band's catalogue. Both Early Days and Latter Days were later combined into the Early Days and Latter Days: The Best of Led Zeppelin Volumes One and Two (2002) CD only box set.
