Product Description

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.

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!!

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?

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.

OK, imagine this: It's 8:45pm on the evening of August 4th 1979. You're in a gently sloping field in Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire. The sun has long since gone down and all you can see on the stage are the standby lights on a series of Marshall MV100 amps. Figures are walking on the stage in front of the amp lights and suddenly... a staccato strike on the open D on the 6/12 SG double-neck rings the opening chords of "The Song Remains The Same". [That's how to use an electric 12 string!].

I still get a shiver running down my spine thinking about that moment even now. It was one of those life changing experiences. And this album takes me back there every time I hear it. Especially now! The original CD release always suffered from a rather two-dimensional sound, but the remastered sound is BRILLIANT.

This was always a favourite live album for me and my most played Led Zeppelin album. The packaging of the remastered CD looks great (kind of like a mini LP) but is functionally lousy - just try getting the discs out without touching the playing surface. But the music: WOW! So much better than "How the West Was Won", especially the 27 minute version of Dazed and Confused (you know, the bit from the end of the violin bow solo to the end of the track - totally sublime electric guitar playing from Mr Page proving that he even understands the super-lochrian mode!)

But what happened to "In between last time we came and this time..."? OK, thanks for the extra tracks, but this omission is in the same category as the deletion of the cough on the early CD releases of Physical Graffiti which Pagey himself lambasted. I'm surprised he let this one through.

But it's all about the music!
