Editorial Reviews

This DVD is a documentary film about the build-up, making, release, and - crucially - music contained on this most revered of albums. With the aid of rare and classic performances, scarce interviews, seldom seen photographs and contributions from those i

The bit after the colon in the title of "Led Zeppelin, Physical Graffiti: A Classical Album Under Review," serves to indicate that this is not a DVD where you get to hear Led Zeppelin talk about the double-album that is considered to be their best effort, but one where journalists, critics, and the like do most of the talking. There are some clips of Led Zep playing songs from "Communication Breakdown" to "Kashmir," but except for one clip of John Bonham talking about their music and a couple of snippets from an interview back in the day with Robert Plant, the band lets their music make the case for them. So have your CD of "Physical Graffiti" at hand (or the vinyl version so you can enjoy the art design), because just getting a taste of some of these songs is not going to be enough after watching the DVD.

The thesis of the review is that this 1975 album is that it represented every aesthetic element of Led Zeppelin's career, traced all the way back to when Jimmy Page was playing with the Yardbirds; Chris Dreja, one of the other guitarists in the group is one of the talking heads here, and sounds in on Page's creation of his new group. Also sounding in on the album are author Nigel Williamson ("The Rough Guide to Led Zeppelin (Rough Guide Reference)"), rock journalist Malcolm Dome ("AC/DC: The Encyclopaedia"), author Dave Lewis ("

Format: DVD
I found this documentary fascinating & very well done. The first 20 minutes was a recap of how Zep came to be which if you're Zep Head you've already gone thru this many times before. The last 60 minutes is the "meat" of the documentary, I like how each song is broken down by several Rock critics, the Engineer who did most of the work on the Epic Double Album & a very intuitive guitar teacher who has written several books on guitar playing. I like how they bring out the orgins of each song & how they became the finish product. I espeically liked the guitar teacher actually demonstrating guitar chords of some of the songs. It really shows the "Genius" in Jimmy Page's guitar playing & how intricate some of those chords really are. An avid guitar player would have trouble putting some of those chords together. That's what makes Jimmy Page so incredible. It also shows how great the other players were & as a whole made the Band without a doubt the Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band ever & it's not even close! I woud put this right up there with "How The West Was Won" DVD set. I would HIGHLY recommend buying this awsome documentary.

There's no doubt in my mind that PG was Zep's finest hour - 4 sides [vinyl junkies] of out and out sonic head music - incorporating funk, folk, blues and rock n ' roll. This dvd goes through every track included on the record and breaks down the structures, the stories bewhind the songs, includes behind the scenes footage and tells the story of the album's production with the engineer / co-producer at Headley Grange, Ron Nevison. A really neat film and some beautiful digi style packaging to boot.

It is a pretty good DVD but I really would have liked more scenes and interviews from the bandmates themselves.
The few parts where the band members are in the DVD are very cool! But most of this DVD has Zep critics or the producer interviewed, which gives a good perspective but I still would have like more from Robert, Jimmy, JPJ or Bonham!

Format: DVD
At 90 minutes in length, the main feature on the DVD Physical Graffiti: A Classic Album Under Review outlasts Led Zeppelin's magnum opus itself. Along for the ride are some very credible experts; while the DVD includes the narration of the BBC's Nicky Horne, commentary from author Dave Lewis and insight from engineer Ron Nevison, perhaps the biggest insights come from Chris Dreja.

The man who was originally a rhythm guitarist with the Yardbirds but switched to bass so that Jimmy Page could take over all guitar duties, Dreja speaks from an insider point of view as someone who knew firsthand what Page's intentions were with forming Led Zeppelin. He was, after all, along for the ride. He opted out, pursuing photography, and John Paul Jones stepped into the role. But could Dreja have been a member of Led Zeppelin? He gives a resolute answer in the negative:
"The Yardbirds would've never been Led Zeppelin. ... What the Yardbirds were was a wonderful breeding ground of crazy ideas and free form, and of course Jimmy absorbed all that from us. I don't blame him for taking them into the Zeppelin and making them tight and rock and heavy. It was an obvious thing for him to do, and he was lucky enough to find one of those rare things in the world. It's like the Beatles. There are so few bands that have that mix of players that just feed off each other and create [such a] unique sound. It's really rare, and I think Jimmy really hit the jackpot there."

Also helping provide the context of the scene into which the album was released is a focus on the formation of Swan Song Records, on which the release of Physical Graffiti followed that of a disc by Bad Company.
