5.0 out of 5 stars The Film Remains Slightly Better November 24, 2007
Format:DVD
This 1976 concert film is one Led Zeppelin item that really did deserve to be improved and expanded. In the November 2007 glut of new Zep products related to the film, this 2-DVD set is clearly the optimal purchase. (Note that this review was written after actually purchasing and consuming the item in question, which appears to be a real rarity so far.) The "Collector's Edition" DVD set adds merchandise that will only be of value to super-diehards, and the new edition of the soundtrack album is apparently built around the new remaster of the movie itself and displays some odd editing choices. I have always felt that the purely audio soundtrack of the movie suffers from the lack of visuals - for example, all 27 minutes of "Dazed and Confused" makes more sense visually because you can watch the theatricality of Jimmy Page's stage performance, while merely listening to the accompanying soundtrack can be tedious. To a lesser extent, the same goes for the extra lengthy "Moby Dick" because while soloing, John Bonham could be even more enjoyable to watch than to listen to. So the film itself is the apotheosis of the entire "The Song Remains the Same" project, and this 2-DVD set presents much needed improvements in audio and video quality, with some bonus items that add value for the enthusiastic fan without becoming obsessive.

Though I'm a lifelong Zep fan, I actually hadn't seen this movie in around 20 years. And I had forgotten how cheesy the non-concert footage truly is, with the fantasy sequences serving as little more than period vanity pieces that rarely rise above the amateurish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the same as the original November 3, 2007
Format:DVD
For those of you writing reviews before ever viewing the dvd or knowing about its contents I am surprised. I am a Led Zeppelin fan and this dvd is not the same as its original. This is the whole concert in its entirety uncut with more than 40 minutes of added bonus material, including never-before-released performance footage not on the original release such as "Over The Hills And Far Away" and "Celebration Day"; plus performances of "Misty Mountain Hop" and "The Ocean"; a rare 1976 BBC interview with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page; vintage TV footage from the Drake Hotel robbery during the New York concert stand; and a Cameron Crowe radio show. This set also includes collectible vintage T-shirt with original album artwork design, soundtrack CD, lobby cards, reproductions of original premiere invites, tour schedule, and more. (As noted on [...])

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
UPDATE: This flaw was corrected in a silent replacement of the title. It took over a year for Warner to fix it, but they did fix it. I have changed my rating of the disc as a result. I realize some were not happy I was critical of this because the gap is only 7 seconds, but a 7 second dropout during a drum solo is pretty bad IMO. Some also may not have experienced the glitch due to getting a fixed copy (again, a year after release) or were not streaming TrueHD.

Anyway, good that the glitch is fixed, however it would have been better if Warner had an official replacement program instead of just silently fixing the problem in an unlabelled 2nd pressing.

BELOW IS ORIGINAL REVIEW TEXT:

Unfortunately the Blu-ray version of this concert has a 7-second long sound dropout in the TrueHD soundtrack at timecode 1:40:45 - all copies of the Blu-ray currently available are affected. The TrueHD soundtrack of the previously released HD DVD does not suffer from this dropout (nor does the Blu-ray's lower quality DD soundtrack), so it is clear this was an encoding goof-up on Warner's part.

This type of QC problem is unacceptable for a product that costs $20, yet Warner has not mentioned any intention of fixing the issue. Hopefully they get on the ball and set up a replacement program for those who buy this defective disc.

Note that the recent re-release of this disc still suffers from the dropout problem. Maybe the third time will be the charm... :\

Format:DVD
This was clearly not the best performance that they were capable of, but what the hey- where else do you get to see Jimmy Page beating on his guitar with a violin bow?
Contrary to the opinions expressed by others, I sorta like the little dramatic bits inserted here and there throughout the movie. They can be cheesy at times, but the Jimmy Page / Hermit of the Tarot bit in the middle of "Dazed and Confused" is really very cool.
There are, however, continuity problems that any die-hard zep fan will notice right away. Bad edits, if you will. You can clearly tell that they cut and pasted two or three performances together, which would be fine... except for the fact that they do it RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF SOME OF THE SONGS! They chopped off a huge portion of "Whole Lotta Love."
Except for the obvious problems with this film, it's still Zeppelin... and if you're reading this, you probably are already familiar with the movie and its contents... after all, most people considering buying this disk are probably already huge fans, and would buy it no matter how bad the film was.
Buy it! It's cheaper than the soundtrack album, and it contains many songs not on the album.
