Biography

Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues -- it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) -- into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press detested the band. Consequently, the only ... Read more in Amazon's Led Zeppelin Store

Quite simple - one of the best rock albums ever released.
From the opening "LA Drone" through to Robert Plant's harmonica coda, this is the real deal.
All Zep fans will be astounded by the clarity of the sound.
Jimmy Page has obviously done a fantastic job of re-mastering the original tapes and I am sure he has done a little "tinkering" here and there!!
I have a bootleg of an LA Forum gig from 72 or 74 and his "flub" quota was always quite high but who cares??
The dynamics are astounding and demands to be played at high volume to fully appreciate the sonic variations.
2 minor criticisms though - without visuals, the 20 mins drum solo (Moby Dick) and 7 mins of bowing the guitar in Dazed are hard going.
They would have been better left to the DVD and edited down for the CD. This would have left room for another gem or two (Rain Song or No Quarter?).
People have tended to overlook the contribution of JP Jones and Bonzo over the years and concentrated on the Page/ Plant partnership.
However, this is as much about them as Pagey's magical guitar playing and Plant's exuberant vocals.
John Bonham proves what a truly great drummer he was, displaying an awesome array of styles and volume control that adds dynamics by the bucket load.
JP Jones shows what a solid (without being flashy) player he was and I particularly enjoyed his mandolin playing on the acoustic section.
If there was any doubt before, this album proves what Zep fans already know - they were the best rock band of all time.
I cannot think of a better way of spending 14 quid, that's for sure!!

At last a fitting testament to the live phenomenon that was Led Zeppelin. Zep aficionados will have doubtless sought out and listened to the 'unofficial' live recordings that have always seemed plentiful, as well as, of course the half a show that is the soundtrack to 'The Song Remains the Same'. The advent of 'How The West Was Won' means all those disappointing recordings, with their poor sound and haphazard presentation, can be left to gather dust. This is how Led Zeppelin were supposed to sound live. The quality is excellent, conveying the true might of a band that dominated rock for a decade and beyond. More importantly, the performances are superb. Sure, there is the odd rough edge, but this is a LIVE performance, without a studio overdub in earshot. The renditions of 'Back Dog' and 'Since I've been Loving You' are far better than on 'The Song Remains The Same' while a whole new dimension has been added with the inclusion of the quieter, acoustic based numbers so glaringly absent from that album. In this complete 'show' (actually culled from two seperate gigs played a couple of days apart) the full spectrum of Zeppelin's musical prowess is presented. Plant's singing is magical on 'Going to California', 'That's The Way' and What Is and What Should Never Be'. But to say that it is any less so anywhere else on the album would be doing him a grave injustice. Only six of the eighteen tracks are repeated from 'The Song Remains The Same' CD (seven if you include 'Since I've Been Loving You', which is performed in the film). To hear live for the first time - properly recorded and mixed - songs such as 'Over The Hills and Far Away', 'Dancing Days' and 'The Ocean' is a joy.Read more ›

It's amazing how little material Led Zeppelin has actually released. Until now the only live Zeppelin available was the poorly thought of soundtrack to the movie "The Song Remains the Same." It's nice that Jimmy Page and company finally did something to change that. "How the West Was Won" is brilliant, showcasing just how great of a live act Zeppelin really was.
Plant sounds great, but what's really amazing is the instrumental firepower he had behind him. That Jimmy Page is a great guitarist is often taken for granted, these three discs illustrate just how much we've taken him for granted. Some of the throwaway chords and riffs that come out of his guitar during the many solos he has on this album are superior to what many of today's musicians labor over. You could write a great rock record with the things that Jimmy thinks aren't worth building a song around.
Perhaps more eyeopening than Page is the work of John Bonham and John Paul Jones. The music revolves around the drums of Bonham, he controls almost everything from his perch behind the drums. The drum sound is incredible too, heavy, thundering, powering, it's like he's issuing you a challenge to ignore him. John Paul Jones also shines. In the studio Page layered guitars upon guitars, you can't do that live, and providing the full rich Zeppelin sound people got used to on the albums fell upon the shoulders of Jones, and he does not dissapoint. Where a lesser band might have had a slight "gap" in their live sound, Jones fills the void. It's amazing, his bass sounds like a lead guitar on "Bring it on Home."
In a world mostly full of disposable pop music it's a real treat to be able to listen to the worlds greatest rock band once more, and to realize just how great they truly were.
