This is THE BEST Led Zeppelin DVD out there. Led Zeppelin The Song Remains The Same in concert and beyond, is one of the BEST Led Zeppelin concert caught on stage 1973 Madison Square Garden fans should NOT MISS. Some of the BEST hits of all time are perform on stage song like, Stairway to Heaven, Dazed and Confused, Since i've been loving you, Rock & Roll, Rain Song, No Quarter and more. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant is a mindblowing combination when they perform on stage. Page ripping all the chords when playing with his twin guitar in Stairway to Heaven is really amazing. Even today it looks very good due to the fact it was shot and film by a panavision camara like in the movies, sharp picture and sound. A Beautiful combination of rock and gutsy blues. All i can say is that this is “The BEST of British Rock and The PIONEERS OF HARD ROCK. The REST imitators” :P "PLEASE SUPPORT CLASSIC ROCK" neo-geo9
I'm a life long fan and I had been to the Madison Square Garden concert. So, I was eager to see what improvements might have been made with a HD version of this concert. Unfortunately... not much. Sound quality is still mediocre and filming although crisp (thanks to HD) is in typical 70's mismash - which includes everything from psychedelic color bleeds to fantasy scenes like Robert Plant horseback riding with some bad sword play (during the Rain Song).
But simply put, there isn't a "Whole Lotta..." Zeppelin concert footage out there. The 2003 "Led Zeppelin" compilation DVD set (which was remastered ala Jimmy Page) is a better buy all around. However... if you are a die hard Zep fan... buy it! This is one more classic to add to your collection.
Now if the proposed 2009-2010 Zep reunion tour gets off the ground, I'll be there for that one too!
Classic LED ZEPPELIN!! If you like Rock Music then "The Song Remains The Same". Jimmy Paige does things with his guitars you need to see again and again, John Paul Jones on bass and showing what bass is meant to be from as far back as music can be memorable, one of the best drum solos of all time is pounded out with visuals that will have you blown away as John Bonham exposes drums to pure explosive force, and Robert Plant in the performance that brought People to midnight movies for the entire era. The total entertainment value is rounded out by the band members fantasy's played out to the musical story line, and the most bizarre Gangster Fantasy of thier manager. The concert backdrop is Madison Square Gardens 1973, and the action behind the scenes is all too real!!!
Not the best thing done by the 'Other Fab Four' but I do especially like the half hour version of the song, Dazed & Confused; and also John Henry Bonham's solo drum performance of the song, Moby Dick. Oh what the heck, it's a good flick, I just like the soundtrack CD, better. The film to me, was kind of amatuerishly done, even when I saw it on the big screen as a kid back the '70s, I felt the same way then. But as always, the music is always the best & that's really all that counts in my book. So buy CD too, while you're at it.
And don't stop there, buy the better DVD entitled simply as, Led Zeppelin as well. It's much better than this film footage & plus, more is added into that DVD of this live performance, of those 3 days Jimmy, John, Robert & Jonesy performed sold out shows there in Madison Square Garden.
Now that Zeppelin's the Song Remains The Same is available on blu-ray disc, it's a chance to upgrade from the VHS release from years ago. Although the original source video is relatively low quality, the engineers went to work to get the most out of what they had to work with and apply modern techniques to bring it to life. Picture quality and sound are noticeably better. It probably would have been just as good on low res DVD, but if your going to take something old and make it new again....go blu-ray.
Rock fans, both young and old, will get a view of some great concert footage, back stage scenes, and vignettes from each of the band members and one from manager Peter Grant as well.
They don't make bands like this anymore.
