This review is from: Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains the Same [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Brilliant ! This is possibly the best representation of Led Zeppelin's status in the music world... the music is sheer genius, but an element of insanity comes through. The cost of making this film must have been extortionate, but it reflects the lifestyle of Zeppelin in that everything they did was larger than life- they could afford to film anything they wanted, and the music is madness: Jimmy Page's bowing during "Dazed and Confused" has to be the ultimate display of self-indulgence.
The only pity is that performances like this never happen any more ! "The song remains the same" is probably the best (and last) example of a truly great band live in concert. From now on, we're stuck with groups like the Spice Girls...
