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

Product Description

"Led Zeppelin's sold-out concert tours became rituals of high-energy rock and roll theater. The SONG REMAINS THE SAME. . .attests to the group's powerful and somewhat saturnalian appeal at the height of their popularity."-- from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's web page on the band's 1995 induction

The Hall of Fame's assessment of the legendary band also states, "Led Zeppelin redefined rock in the Seventies and for all time. They were as influential in that decade as the Beatles were in the prior one . . . Then and now, Led Zeppelin looms larger than life on the rock landscape as a band for the ages with an almost mystical power to evoke primal passions." That power is communicated full-force in the updated, 2CD reissue of the soundtrack to their concert film The SONG REMAINS THE SAME. The newly updated edition now contains six songs not featured on the original release, and the entire project was remixed and remastered with the band members' direct oversight. Featuring liner notes by Oscar®-winning director and former Rolling Stone editor Cameron Crowe, the set will be released simultaneously by Warner Home Video with the new, expanded DVD edition of the film.

Format: Audio CD
Still im not getting embroiled in any arguements over Jimmy Page's trickery/deceit ,call it what you will,im just enjoying this for what it is ,a better version ,on balance,than the original release.

Back in the day,the vinyl release was spoiled by a tedious side long 'Dazed n Confused,performed underwhelmingly by a band that sounded bored(Plant in particular) and the inexcusable decision to leave off 'Since I've Been Loving You'(which was one of the best bits in the original movie!!!).

Sadly the original CD release did nothing to improve the situation and it was no surprise when it was left out when all the discs were remastered.

So why should you buy this,well despite the studio trickery,edits and suchlike, the sound has improved enormously and the addition of 6 bonus tracks enhances rather than detracts from the overall package.

Disc 1 is 5 stars all the way with stunning moments such as 'Rock n Roll/Since I've Been.../The Ocean etc

Disc 2 has all the bloated,overlong moments such as Dazed and Confused/Moby Dick and Whole Lotta Love,they have all been performed better,its a pity bonus track Heartbreaker is stuck here,cos you wont listen to disc 2 as much as disc 1.

Overall 4 stars,improved sound quality,you can play disc 1 to death and ignore disc 2 if you wish,decent liner notes,and its great to have all the old photos back.It was never the greatest live album in the world in the first place,not sure why so many people expected the remaster to change that.

Good to see this has finally been remastered and the extra songs are welcome. One thing I cannot understand though is No Quarter has been edited from the original version, the previous release was 12:30 in length, this version is around 2 minutes shorter with obvious cuts in the mid-song jam section. Why on earth would you re-master an original and then cut sections of a song out?

The film was certainly not the best rock 'n' roll film ever. But the soundtrack album (bought in vinyl on release day by me)was the first chance to get a legal live Led Zeppelin album; and so things remained for many years.

The original release suffered from pretty poor sound, even for the early '70s.

I am so pleased that Page has got round to remastering this bugger, and to putting some unreleased stuff on it as well. "Heartbreaker" has been my favourite live Led Zeppelin number since I saw them for the first time at Bath in 1970.* I still cannot get enough live renditions of that one. In the film it did not appear properly, being broken up by footage of worries about the robbery event, that actually made no-one concerned poor. The full song is here at last.

This set probably does not capture the band on their very best night in terms of hitting the right note every time. But it captures the strength and improvisational ability of what was at the time the real best rock 'n' roll band in the world. The Stones and The Who were terrific, but joint second behind Led Zeppelin.

Anyone who does not buy this has a major gap in their collection.

*And I was at Knebworth 2 when they still didn't play "Heartbreaker," having played it the week before.

I agree with Tom from the US.....do some homework! This latest incarnation is just 'better' 'cos of the increased number of tracks. The quality on the whole is, in my opinion, much worse than the 'original' CD set, therefore it only gets 3 stars. The guitar solo in probably Jimmy Page's greatest riff, ie in 'No Quarter' is cut to shreds. Two minutes of that track are missing in this latest collection just so they can squeeze on the admittedly excellent 'Ocean', which is in the wrong place anyway as it was their encore and curtain closing number after 'Whole Lotta love' in their live set. The greatest guitar solo in guitar history, in Dazed and Confused, after the violin bow set, is of a horrible quality as it's just taken directly from the movie which was rubbish, has too much bass and therefore not enough sound quality, and hearing both this one and the 'original' you will realise why the original edit is better. You might think you're getting more, but you're not, honestly. Do like I've done...take the extra tracks (with those from How the West was Won as well), and make your own 'mix' of the best tracks from all 3 sources. Its the best of all worlds.
If you're just about to buy this as your first live Led Zepp album, just because its got 2007 stamped on it, you'll be making a mistake!!
I'd say get the 'original' CD set and then compare the same tracks with this one, you'll soon hear which one is the better!!

Keep well your old TRRS cd, cause this is practically another concert.
Incredibly, Jimmy Page edited or changed several songs that are way better than the ones
he put instead.
The best and non edited versions of the older cd are Celebration Day, The Song Remains The Same. Moby Dick, Whole Lotta Love and No Quarter -the incredible guitar solo is absolute killer. The new version is nowhere near it.
Listen carefully and you will notice . The new cd is great, but not like the first one.
Of course the remastered sound is better, so just enjoy both cd`s like different concerts, different day on the Madison Square Garden. Good Extra tracks count too.
