Product Description

Product Description

WSM.UK are proud to announce the release of all the led zeppelin albums with "vinyl replica" packaging, featuring original album artwork, gatefolds where applicable, inner sleeves and in the case of Led Zeppelin III, a revolving wheel as featured on the original LP release. Previously only available as very pricey imports, these albums are now available at mid price.

Long acknowledged as one of the most formidable concert acts on the rock & roll arena circuit, Led Zeppelin finally bit the grenade and in 1976 released this, the only live album of their career. The companion to a same-named full-length feature film combing concert footage and oblique "personal" visual statements by each member, this collection still stands up as a souvenir of Zeppelin's winning stage combination of fire and fury. A sort of live greatest hits disc, the album features good versions of "Rock and Roll", "Dazed and Confused" (complete with violin-bowed guitar, of course), "Whole Lotta Love" and the inevitably climactic "Stairway to Heaven". --Billy Altman

Led Zeppelin's only (official) live album is a 'must buy' for any genuine fans and, indeed, anyone who has seen the film or who likes the band but missed out on seeing them live.
The band really were a magnificent live outfit and for anyone not fortunate enough to have seen them live, this album, together with the accompanying film, offers a taste of what they were like in concert.
The band do great justice to their classic songs "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock 'n' Roll" and "Whole Lotta Love" - the latter being an extended version complete with the "Boogie Mama" middle section.
The highlight for me is a truly astounding version of "No Quarter". John Paul Jones excels himself on keyboards, while, not to be outdone, Jimmy Page contributes one of his most magnificent and memorable guitar solos. This track is vastly superior to the studio version, which sounds a little bit flat by comparison.
In similar vein the versions of "The Song Remains The Same" and "The Rain Song", although closer to their studio counterparts, are still superior.
"Dazed and Confused", at 27 minutes, may be too long for some... but with all the tempo changes and having see the film and remembering Jimmy Page playing the guitar with a violin bow at one point, the time seems to fly by.
Whilst "Moby Dick", which is John Bonham's drum-solo extravaganza, can be entertaining on screen it rapidly becomes rather irritating just listening to it.
The only other curiosity is the inclusion of "Celebration Day". The band play a decent enough version of it but it doesn't feature in the film and it seems to have been included on the soundtrack at the expense of "Since I've Been Loving You" which, for me, is the absolute highlight of the film. Very strange.
Those slight criticisms apart, this is still an excellent live album which captured the band at their peak. It is worth the purchase price just for "No Quarter".

During the twenty years that is gone since I first heard 'The Song Remains The Same', it has become customary to read bad reviews about the album. An album cursed with an aura of being something close to a failure in the Zeppelin-catalogue. Indeed, even Led Zeppelin themselves claimed they were never too happy about the whole affair. And that to such an extent that Jimmy Page chose to neglect it when the studio albums got remastered in 1990. This - together with the fact that the movie 'The Song Remains The Same' remains lukewarm in the hands of the same critics, has caused a general tendency amongst them to be in denial of the indisputable qualities there are to be found in these 1973-recordings, qualities which everyone with an ear for rock and roll are likely to acknowledge sooner or later. Well, at least one can always hope. Frankly, I have never quite fully understood the critisism. As far as I'm concerned, I was in my late teens when I first heard this soundtrack-album. Tellingly, I was in the innocent situation that nobody told me what had gone before. No chance then for being influenced to believe anything about the record in advance. I simply got introduced to 'The Song Remains The Same' through a good friend of mine, a Zep-fan like myself, who happened to dig both the film and the soundtrack to death - everything in a time when Zeppelin weren't exactly the hottest news around. But triggered by that soundtrack, it didn't take long before I rediscovered the band and completely got hooked up into Led Zeppelin's almost formidable world of obsessive guitar-licks, drama, uncompromising drive, beauty, development, complexity, boogie mama and thunderous kit-thumping. Fans and musicians happen to dig this album, actually, also most of the ones I've met personally.Read more ›

Even though this is NOT the remastered version (which finally features all of the songs at Madison Square Garden) THIS edition features the LP versions of the uncut Whole Lotta Love (extra guitar jam beginning of a minute & a half before the psychedelic theramin interlude), of which I've been looking for for quite some time (...I'm just looking for the bridge! section). You can hear it on the special edition dvd (out of context though) in the titles menu.
Another feature on this cd is the full length versions of No Quarter & Moby Dick. Why anyone would want to edit out Jimmy Page's guitar jam solos and John Henry Bonham's drumming by 2 minutes is beyond me! If Jimmy Page edited it out himself then by thunder! SOMEBODY TELL HIM TO PUT THESE BACK IN!
Dazed And Confused is edited by 2 minutes here but I can't pinpoint where! Was it in the audience noise? Here it's 26:53 and on the special edition it's 29:18. Hmmm... strange.
The special edition has more songs, correct running order & is remastered so I highly recommend it to the fans. But the LP version was what I was listening to growing up and there are somethings you just do not tamper with when it comes to the flow of the music coming at you from your Marantz 400 watt speakers!
And I finally found this flow intact in this earlier edition of this Zep classic.
For the price of this cd its worth every penny!
Which was 1970's prices to boot! Thank you!

To fully appreciate the impact this film had you must go back in time to 1976 - expensive

home videos had only just become available, computers, internet and mobile phones were

the stuff of science fiction, cars were still running on cross-ply tyres and leaded petrol,

there were still only three TV channels in the UK (no breakfast television) and the digital

age, and Sunday opening for the stores, was still something waiting to come in the far

distant future. As for Led Zeppelin, they were still at the top of their game around this

time, having completed a monster world tour and made a series of

legendary performances at London's Earl's Court the year before - I queued up at 7 o clock

in the morning to get tickets for this, and still feel it was the most exciting rock concert i

have ever attended.

The relationship between the press and the band was suspicious and bitter, to put it mildly,

only a privileged rare few were allowed into the "Houses of the Holy", any news about

them was scant to say the least and added to the mystique of the band, only music

papers such as "Sounds" and "Melody Maker" were really the only sources of information,

and the fanzine "Tight But Loose". The huge touring schedules Zeppelin undertook around

the world earned them a massive fan base, their concerts included many songs and

improvisations not available on their studio albums so a plethora of live bootleg albums

appeared, mostly with appalling sound quality.
