"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.

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.
But instead Jimmy Page decided, in what could only be described as a fit of pure insanity, to edit some of the tracks.
The butchering of 'No Quarter' is particularly hard to take as the (now missing) instrumental section on the original album was it's finest moment.
Which just leaves it at number 1 in the most ironic album title chart. What a shame.
I have both the 'old' and the remastered versions and the aside from the gripe from some fans about the questionable editing and patching together of songs from the three Madison Square Garden shows, there is no question that these performances capture the band during a time when they were at their peak.
Agreed that these songs don't represent the above MSG shows faithfully, but its still Led Zeppelin all the way and I feel it enhances rather than takes away anything from these songs.
The remastered version sounds absolutely brilliant and is a big improvement over the previous and the 6 new additions to this cracking album are a very welcome addition and was a long time coming.
The most noticeable difference between the two versions of this album, apart from the new additions is the slightly shorter jam session and solo on No Quarter, the slightly different solo on Celebration Day (from a different night I believe), the slightly longer version of Dazed and Confused and shorter version of Whole Lotta Love on the remastered album. The rest of the minor differences are so miniscule that you will not notice them. I don't know if its just me, but I find the solo of Stairway To Heaven on the old version of this album much clearer and better than the one on the remaster.
I suggest getting both the versions, the remastered one for the six new songs and the vastly improved sound and the previous version for the longer versions and different solos on No Quarter, Celebration Day and Whole Lotta Love.

Frankly disappointed. The songs are just far too slow, about 5 % too slow! Sounds painful to get through tbh.Published 5 months ago by Andrew Jones
Great album. Maybe not as good as HTWWW, but still great. Yet I've kept my original vinyl and CD, mainly because of the editing on Celebration Day. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Paul Andersen
