Product Description

Three of their best-ever performances - Royal Albert Hall 1970, Earls Court 1975, Knebworth 1979 plus Madison Square Gardens 1973 - plus other highlights including rare television appearances, interviews, behind-the scenes clips and 'bootleg' footage.

From Amazon.co.uk

Legendary and long sought-after, this live Led Zeppelin collection is nothing less than the rock music equivalent of the Holy Grail. Quite simply, this is what all the fuss was about.

Given that they were the biggest band in the world, Zeppelin were notoriously camera-shy in their heyday. Their official filmic legacy until now has been just the fascinating but flawed The Song Remains the Same. While this new set presents some previously unseen footage from the same 1973 Madison Square Garden gigs, its real wonders lie in the earlier (1970) Royal Albert Hall footage and the later Earls Court (1975) and Knebworth (1979) concerts. Everything here looks and sounds new-minted, thanks to painstaking restoration and remastering of both audio and visual sources, a Herculean labour of love on the part of co-producer Dick Carruthers working hand-in-glove with Jimmy Page.

Trawling through thousands of yards of previously unseen film and unheard tape recordings--some with missing visuals, some with missing audio--Page and Carruthers have chosen only the best possible footage available. They were also at pains to make the segments segue seamlessly so that the viewer is treated to what feels like a continuous concert--just sample the transition from a grainy Super 8 "Immigrant Song" (Sydney, 1972) to "Black Dog" at MSG.

Highlights? It's not hyperbole to say that every powerhouse minute of this collection (some 230 minutes of concert footage plus another hour and a half of extra DVD material) is a rare musical and visual treat. But hearing Page's violin bow work on "Dazed and Confused" in DTS or Dolby 5.1 is an experience not soon forgotten.

On the DVD: Led Zeppelin two-disc set presents all the footage in pristine 4:3 picture ratio (the Madison Square Garden footage is letterboxed) with Dolby 5.1, DTS or PCM Stereo sound options. Note that the audio is uncompressed for maximum ear-shattering enjoyment. The menu screens do not pop up beforehand, but have to be selected. It's well worth doing so. Enjoy the music first, then discover that even the menus have been painstakingly designed to provide still more unseen footage and unheard recordings (some screens don't cycle round, but present another song in its entirety). Extras include rare TV appearances, interviews and bootleg footage. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin at their best 27 May 2003
Format:DVD
Unlike the only other Led Zeppelin dvd, The Song Remains the Same, this dvd set has no annoying home videos or fantasy sequences. It is simply footage from some of their best concerts from the 70s. The highlights on this DVD set are the songs Led Zeppelin didn't commonly play live, White Summer (a Black Mountain Side type intrumental from Jimmy Page), What Is and What Should Never be (lovely performance here), The Ocean, Going to California, That's The Way, Bron Yr Aur Stomp (this 3 song accoustic set is perhapse my favourite part of this release - very very nice folk-style music which many people don't even know Led Zeppelin was great at) and of course Achilles Last Stand and Kashmir.
The interviews aren't particularly interesting, but at least you get to hear Jimmy Page's voice for a change which is nice.
The sound quality is amazingly good. The video quality is fine, obviously not like a modern recording but absoluteley fine for what this is - a live performance.
Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers really have made a product worthy of possibly being Led Zeppelin's final release, and they have made up for the annoying (but still very good) The Song Remains The Same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin Double DVD a real treat 5 Jun 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Led Zeppelin DVD package is, quite simply, the best DTS DVD you can buy. Despite the age of the source material, Jimmy Page and the producers of this DVD have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that the final product was one of real quality.
Anyone who appreciates rock music should buy it, as not only does it give you the shots of how they made some of those extraordinary sounds, but shows a fascinating insight into their thoughts at the time. It also explains why they never released singles in the UK, how they conquered the US, plus loads of bonus footage (including some bemused Danish teenagers who probably boast to their children and grandchildren about the fact that Led Zeppelin played to only about 50 of them in a studio). I would recommend this DVD to anyone who has ever owned any Led Zeppelin Album - and none of this was ever released on Video.
Jimmy Page and Dick Carruthers have gone to extraordinary lengths (must have taken them years to do this) to reconstitute film with sound from sources such as 2 inch Video (apparently they had to search world-wide to find anything to play the tape
on!!).
Don't delay - get this. It's bloody marvellous - most of it in DTS too. If you've got a good 5.1 system - why haven't you got this yet?!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another quality mystic biscuit from our heroes 5 Sep 2003
Format:DVD
The best way to describe this package is to describe my response on hearing and seeing the two discs in one sitting through dts surround sound. Spookily good! hairs standing up on the back of my neck and it may be a cliche but it was like having the band in my front room. The sound quality is the success story of this package - choose between 6 channel stereo or dts, both good with dts having the edge. If you have neither of these then an investment is due. The film footage is very good too. You may notice from time to time when the picture flicks to odd angles of the band and odddly coloured outlines of Robert and Jimmy - thats where the original footage is missing or of poor quality. Its well put together though and the splices hardly impede the viewing quality. For one thing all the film footage shows Led Zeppelin as the insanely precise outfit we all believed they were. The live experience is witnessed in full. Bonham and JPG hammering out precise and complex rhythmn whilst jimmy goes nuts on the guitar in the most rock-jazz robot kind of way only he knows how. The most interesting concert footage for me however was the Knebworth gig. I never liked the studio version of Achillies last stand and was never that taken with anything from that era. They must of worked hard before the gig to obtain the precision with all the tracks presented here as I was blown away by the aforementioned song as much as anything else. An immense performance which made me think that 10+ years together as a band does weird things with their understanding of each other, musically that is. The hair styles and clothing is not of seventies origin, a more 80's and reasonably normal dress code from both Page (suit and blue shirt)and Plant (curious perm and black spotted shirt. For me this was just plain weird as I never think of Led Zeppelin other than in the 70's guise. Anywho, this is a must have, but make the most of it and buy surround sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Live Footage You Could Hope For 5 Jun 2003
Format:DVD
I am a huge Led Zeppelin fan, and as such you would normally take anything I say with a pinch of salt, but believe me when I say that this is an astounding DVD. Yes the footage is at times 30 years old, but it doesn't suffer for it. Apart from occasional white outs, which have been masked with stills, there is extensive footage, with close, intimate camera work. The rendition of Moby Dick blows TSRTS out of the water, Bonzo's passion, and incredible technique are clear. Very few bands perform as well live as Led Zeppelin did, and this is Led Zeppelin captured at their best.
I have read a lot of reviews of this DVD from fans around the world, and not one has had a bad word for this release. I would love the opportunity to thank Jimmy Page for this chance for me to see my favourite band play live, as I was too young to catch them for real. If you like Led Zeppelin, remember they were a live phenomenon so this double disc feature is a must.

This is how live DVD's should look. The Danish footage is beyond brilliant but the Knebworth footage has me worried. There are definetly two voices and i think two guitars

This is good. Buy it. The Nebworth concert is a real eye opener, right at the end of their career, and they are brilliant.
