Led Zeppelin's "BBC Sessions" is a great treasure trove of live material the group recorded for the BBC between 1969 and 1971. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham were one of the rock world's greatest live acts, as this live set clearly shows. Granted, several songs are repeated, like "Communication Breakdown" (3 versions), "You Shook Me" and "I Can't Quit You Baby" (2 versions), but who's complaining? One of Zeppelin's live trademarks was never to perform any song the exact same way, so each version of "Communication Breakdown," for example, differs somewhat from the other versions, as the band wanted to jam on it in a different, fresh way each time. And it works. Other goodies include a smokin' version of "Travelling Riverside Blues," and a brilliant performance of Zeppelin's signature song, "Stairway To Heaven." I also love the band's extended workouts on display here, including an 18 1/2 minute jam on "Dazed And Confused" (with Page getting some truly wild sounds out of his guitar), and the nearly 14-minute blast through "Whole Lotta Love," in which Zeppelin also insert some blues favorites like "Boogie Chillin'" and "That's Alright Mama." So, what are you waiting for, Zepheads---"BBC Sessions" totally deserves a place in your Led Zeppelin collection.

when i first popped the first cd in my cd player i was really surprised. i didn't expect much from it for some reason, but whatever reason that was, it was wrong. this album revitalized my enduring enthusiasm for led zeppelin, the band that could play the same song several different ways.
speaking of playing the same song different ways, bbc sessions has 3 versions of communication breakdown, 2 versions of you shook me and i can't quit you baby, 2 versions of dazed and confused and whole lotta love, i think i covered everything. :O
if you're a new zepp fan, then you'll love the rhythm and ferocity at 80% of their tunes on here - it harkens back to their early days of their first 4 albums.
it also contains the phenomenal, The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair and Travelling Riverside Blues! Truely missed classics, not on any lone album (i do think they are in one of the box sets).
trust me, if you're looking for a great rock album from a band that you thought you heard it all from, then pick up this album -its a welcome breath of fresh air.

Format: Audio CD
The "BBC Sessions" showcases the awesome musical ability of all four members of the 70's rock titan Led Zeppelin. Disc 1 is mainly composed of heavy rock and blues familiars from their first two official releases. "Communication Breakdown" is found during three different points during this album, with each track showing the vast improvement of Zeppelin's playing ability in just three short months of touring in 1969. This is also effectively displayed with the inclusion of "You Shook Me" and "I Can't Quit You," played from the first "Top Gear" BBC Sessions in March of 1969 and during the "One Night Stand" BBC recordings from August of the same year. The blues drenched standout "Travelling Riverside Blues" features white hot Blues riffing by Page, and includes song writing credits that are typically documented as produced by Page, Plant, and Robert Johnson, who was one of many mysterious "fifth" song writers of Led Zeppelin. For those who aren't hardcore Zep heads like myself, Led Zeppelin was a band notorious for stealing lyrics directly out of old blues favorites. My only complaint about Disc 2 is that Robert Plant's voice cracks during the opening track "The Immigrant Song" and the then-yet-to-be-released "Black Dog," which kicks off with the opening drum beat of "Out On the Tiles." Outside of those two weak moments, Disc 2 delivers the goods and then some. Led Zeppelin flexes their heavy metal muscles on a rip-roaring version of "Whole Lotta Love," which was also one of the first live performances of this song. The 60's flower power side found on "Zeppelin III" or "Zeppelin IV" is also displayed with perfection on "Going to California," "That's the Way," and "Thank You," which is a great way to end a concert.Read more ›

Though these recordings are not a truly live concert (and there is probably a flashing "APPLAUD" sign for the audience), it is still amazingly brilliant. Robert's singing was especially deep, raunchy, and emotional. The version of "Thank You" is the absoulute best version EVER...the solo is absoulutely saccharine on electric guitar, nothing like the studio version on Led Zeppelin II, which is acoustic. There are 2 "Dazed & Confused" versions, but I should hope that any Zeppelin fan prefers the longer one, with the violin bow solo and all. What is really unique and enthralling about the 18-min or so version of "Dazed & Confused" is that the solo is enchanting and eerie...because there is no screaming crowd to interrupt, and the dead silence of the entire place allows the solo to be very echoey and very mysterious, like Pagey himself.

"The Immigrant Song" has defintitely been served its justice on this album, more rock-able than the studio version for SURE! And one of my favorite things about the song "What is and What Should Never Be" is that during the song's ending, while Robert sings, "Everybody I know seems to know me well but they really didn't know that I move like..." he changes "move" to something else...haha I shall leave you in suspense. It's quite cute really, and will make you laugh if you pay attention. And even though there are two versions of "Whole Lotta Love," how can anyone not like the medley version, which is extremely bluesy, thanks to the incorporation of "Boogie Chillun" and "That's Alright Mama?"

One last thing I would like to point out is that the versions of "Going to California" and "That's the Way" are very serene versions. They do not sound like the studio versions, but that's what's so nice about them; they are a different side to the songs.

interview cd??
You'd have to ask the second market seller directly. As I recall, the only place you could get that extra interview disc was from the version sold by Best Buy in the USA.
