Editorial Reviews

Led Zeppelin s sold-out concert tours became rituals of high-energy rock and roll theater. The SONG REMAINS THE SAME...attests to the group s powerful and somewhat saturnalian appeal at the height of their popularity.
- from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame s web page on the band s 1995 induction
The Hall of Fame s assessment of the legendary band also states, Led Zeppelin redefined rock in the Seventies and for all time. They were as influential in that decade as the Beatles were in the prior one...Then and now, Led Zeppelin looms larger than life on the rock landscape as a band for the ages with an almost mystical power to evoke primal passions. That power is communicated full-force in the updated, 2CD reissue of the soundtrack to their concert film THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME. First released in 76, the recording captures a celebrated three-night stand at NYC s Madison Square Garden in July 1973. The newly updated edition now contains six songs not featured on the original release, and the entire project was remixed and remastered with the band members direct oversight. Featuring liner notes by Oscar-winning director and former Rolling Stone editor Cameron Crowe, the set will be released simultaneously by Warner Home Video with the new, expanded DVD edition of the film.

I admit I wasn't a fan of The Song Remains the Same live album when it was released back in 1976 (was it that long ago?). The concert seemed flat. When the CD was first issued, I thought it sounded even worse. Hardly any highs or lows -- sound-wise and performance-wise.

But Jimmy Page and Kevin Shirley have waved a magic wand over the master tapes. This isn't the same album any more. It's dynamic, vibrant, blistering. The bass guitar is there now! The guitar rings out clear as a bell. And Plant's voice is right up front where it belongs.

I've been listening all afternoon to this remastered edition of The Song Remains the Same. There have been projects around the house I was supposed to get to. There was another new CD I wanted to hear. But I couldn't take this 2-CD set out of my player. It held me in its grip for the entire concert.

Led Zeppelin continues to astound some 25 years after they broke up, and a full three decades plus after this concert was performed at Madison Square Garden in 1973.

If you've held off buying this because the original version left a bad taste in your mouth, rest assured this is a unique experience now. It's crisp as a new can of Pringles and twice as tasty.

I highly recommend The Song Remains the Same remastered 2-CD edition.

First, I want to say that the ORIGINAL version of this album is one of my favorite albums of all time! On the original release, the live versions of Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Celebration Day and No Quarter are far superior to the studio versions in my opinion.

HOWEVER, this release is not just a remastered version with 6 new songs. Listening to this release frustrates me because I hear so many edits on what were really great versions on the original. I would just like to ask Jimmy Page WHY!!!!! Sure add new songs and improve the sound quality but why edit versions that have been part of this album for 31 years!!!

I know people who are new to this album won't care that much about the edits but for Diehards like me, it's a slap in the face! Just a few examples of horrible edits that differ from the original release:

Celebration Day - The outro solo is different and inferior.

No Quarter - The piano solo that starts at 3:27, Page cut out a minute of that very cool groove before the guitar solo starts and THEN he edited the guitar solo which on the original version was one of my favorites of all time. WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then he cut John Paul Jones introduction after the song (He does like to disrespect Jonesy).

Whole Lotta Love - On the original version at 1:22 a very cool funky jam happens for about a minute and 40 seconds. On this release Page cut out a minute and half of that jam. It didn't improve anything it sounds awkward and edited.

There are other small edits not worth ranting about but I hear them everytime I listen to this release.

Now for the positive.

As much as I agree with the other reviewers of this title that is has supurb sound, the rest of it is a very big let down. When the movie and sountrack came out in 1976, they were two seperate items. Now what has happened is that they took the remixed soundtrack from the movie itself and put it onto the CD. What's wrong with that is that there are a lot of bad edits in the movie that were transfered over to the CD itself. That did not happen in 1976. THIS IS TOTALLY UNEXCEPTABLE. I cannot believe that Jimmy Page would alow this to happen. If you want to save yourself some money this holiday season, buy the DVD and listen to the music. Don't waste your time on the CD (I would take mine back for a refund if I could). I am so happy I didn't get rid of my original copy.

As a hard-core fan who has been waiting over 20 years for this to come out, I do not recommend it at all. A very big disappointment.

I'm one of those who saw the movie when it came out in 1976, more than once in fact. It was an immediate 'Saturday midnight' favorite where I grew up (Belgium). By then the band's reputation was larger than life and there simply was not much of an opportunity ever to see them live. I bought the double-album when it came out, and I never understood why the album was so much maligned by both fans and critics. I thought it was pretty darn good. Now after 31 years, and amid a frenzy of renewed Led Zeppelin activity (catalog on iTunes, the "Mothership" best of, and of course the upcoming one-off show in London--among swirling rumors the band may tour proper in 2008), now comes a newly expanded version of this album.

On "The Song Remains the Same" (2 CDs; 15 tracks; 132 min.), the first CD starts off with the classic "Rock and Roll" and "Celebration Day", then dives straight into 4 previously unreleased tracks, including a rousing "Misty Mountain Top", but even better is the slowburner "Since I've Been Loving You". CD1 (10 tracks, 60 min.) finishes with 4 songs from the "Houses of the Holy" album, which the band was touring behind at the time, including a previously unreleased "The Ocean". It is impossible for me to listen to "No Quarter" and not think of the John Paul Jones 'fantasy sequences' in the movie. CD2 (5 tracks, 72 min.) brings one more new track ("Heartbreaker") but the lead-off track, a 25 min. epic "Dazed and Confused" towers over everything else. It is for me the ultimate Led Zeppelin track. I usually skip "Stairway to Heaven" (overrated and played to death on classic radio), but still like the "Moby Dick" drum solo, as well as the closer "Whole Lotta Love".

Track listing - with bonus tracks!
Loved the new soundtrack, but I miss certain things from the old soundtrack. Here are some of the main differences between the original 76 soundtrack and the newly expanded one:

Does the song remain the same (the new remaster vs. the old cd or vinyl?)
Check out www.thegardentapes Web site. I think it (or another source) states that Page overdubbed a lead part on "Rock and Roll" to duplicate the sound of the studio version. Live, at least at the time of this live recording, he couldn't duplicate the lead riff part over the chords,... Read More
