Led Zeppelin at their best,
This review is from: Led Zeppelin [DVD](2003) [Region 1] (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.
