Experience the lightning of Led Zeppelin's 1973 Madison Square Garden concert-and enter the dreams and backstage lives of one of rock's all-time best-selling bands! Year: 1976 Director: Peter Clifton, Joe Massot Starring: Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Bonham, John Paul Jones
For Led Zeppelin fanatics, this 1976 feature The Song Remains the Same is a treasure of searing live performances, particularly welcome in light of the sad scarcity of such visual material from the band's great decade. Despite the group's road weariness after a long tour, their final, three-night stand at Madison Square Garden in 1973 was full of the old power. Performances of "No Quarter," "Whole Lotta Love," "Black Dog," "Dazed and Confused," and "Stairway to Heaven" underscore Zep's charisma. Trouble is, you don't get an unbroken performance here. Viewers have to wade through a mishmash of documentary insight into the lives of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones, as well as fantasy sequences supposedly inspired by the thoughts and fantasies of the band's individual members. It's mostly garish and silly, but there are some nice elements, especially insights into the late Bonham's life. The DVD doesn't offer much in the way of add-ons (a theatrical trailer is about it), but there is also enhanced viewing for 16 x 9 televisions. --Tom Keogh

The quality of this film isn't very good and the story around the music is pointless. The concert music with what you would expect. Read morePublished 5 days ago by snowdog
It is quite simply the best music concert video I have ever seen. Better than the soundtrack music on its own. Shows the pure magic and mystique that is Led Zeppelin.Published 12 days ago by Stephen L. Carr Jr.
The sound increases much better than DVD or Betamax version. But the picture is still quite dark as DVD version.Published 19 days ago by Smart Bedjo

Jimmy Page plays every note and chord , not just strumming up and down the Chord tree. Eric Clapton said Jimmy P. showed him how to play each note while both with the Yard Birds, but Eric said he tried but couldn't think that fast to move his fingers.
J. Page was brought up in a classical... Read More

Like jeans in stores these days, many of these retro-style concert and band shirts intentionally look faded, even with some of the image cracked (as if the shirt had been through the washer and dryer too many times.) It's a fashion trend now with concert shirts. Don't fear. Enjoy the shirt ....
