5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction to Live Led Zeppelin, February 19, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: BBC Sessions (Audio CD)
These two CD's are a better representation of Led Zeppelin's live power than the Soundtrack to The Song Remains The Same. The first half of the first disc contains selections from several short BBC Sessions (comparable to the sessions that comprise the BBC releases of The Beatles, The Who, The Yardbirds, and Jimi Hendrix.) The second half of the first disc and the entire second disc, however, consist of two long concerts performed for the BBC, which seem to be peculiar to Led Zeppelin. These are what make this CD set stand out from those of their contemporaries. The lengthy concerts (both over an hour long) allowed Led Zeppelin to improvise and expand their songs and surpass the typical 3 minute song length desired by the BBC suits. As a result, these performances are a real treat. These extended live performances complement their corresponding studio tracks perfectly, and demonstrate the amazing abilities of all 4 band members. My only complaint is that this release should have been 3 CD's long. The two concerts described above are sadly abridged. Dazed and Confused and White Summer are missing from the first concert, and What Is And What Should Never Be, Communication Breakdown, and the unabridged Whole Lotta Love Medley are missing from the second. In addition, many additional Radio and TV performances from other dates are missing from the first disc. Of course, we have been waiting 25 years for this release, so I guess I shouldn't complain. Anyway, order this set today. It is as essential as Led Zeppelin's great Studio performances.
