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.Read more ›
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... :\
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.

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.

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 ....
