Exclamations of religious awe are in order. Legendary and long sought-after, this live Led Zeppelin collection is nothing less than the rock music equivalent of the Holy Grail. Quite simply, this is what all the fuss was about.
Given that they were the biggest band in the world, Zeppelin were notoriously camera-shy in their heyday. Their official filmic legacy until now has been just the fascinating but flawed The Song Remains the Same. While this new set presents some previously unseen footage from the same 1973 Madison Square Garden gigs, its real wonders lie in the earlier (1970) Royal Albert Hall footage and the later Earls Court (1975) and Knebworth (1979) concerts. Everything here looks and sounds new-minted, thanks to painstaking restoration and remastering of both audio and visual sources, a Herculean labor of love on the part of co-producer Dick Carruthers working hand-in-glove with Jimmy Page. Trawling through thousands of yards of previously unseen film and unheard tape recordings--some with missing visuals, some with missing audio--Page and Carruthers have chosen only the best possible footage available. They were also at pains to make the segments segue seamlessly so that the viewer is treated to what feels like a continuous concert--just sample the transition from a grainy Super 8 "Immigrant Song" (Sydney, 1972) to "Black Dog" at MSG.
Highlights? It's not hyperbole to say that every powerhouse minute of this collection (some 230 minutes of concert footage plus another hour and a half of extra DVD material) is a rare musical and visual treat. But hearing Page's violin bow work on "Dazed and Confused" in DTS or Dolby 5.1 is an experience not soon forgotten. --Mark Walker

- The music still sounds fresh and powerful today. In fact, I can't think of anything that surpasses it.
- The blues and psychedelic influence on them was more than I realized.
- Robert Plant was quite the front man, his open shirt and the, um, "bulge" in his pants surely drawing the attention of the ladies.
- Jimmy Page was a somewhat sloppy player by modern standards, but oh my, his creativity and musicality is tremendous. No wonder he was among the biggest influences on me when I was a young guitarist over three decades ago.
- John Paul Jones was really a stellar bass player, filling up sonic space in a way that gave Jimmy lots of room to explore, and wonderfully in sync with John Bonham too.
- John Bonham was a seriously badass drummer. Unique grooves, a ton of power, a style that no one has replicated since. Of course, we all wonder where Led Zeppelin would have gone had he not passed prematurely ...
All in all, this DVD is a treat for Led Zeppelin fans, especially those of us who missed out on seeing them live in concert.
Un gran disco, de unos grandes artistas, que dejaron con él su huella para muchos años y para el recuerdo de tantos que como yo añoran su música, y es en estos tiempos que he podido conseguirla en un formato tan bueno como injustamente valorado que es el DVD. Una gran compra, hecha en Amazon, que demuestra su preocupación por la calidad
I was going to save the DVDs for that 'pie in the sky' wide screen that I may or never may get. Anyway, just the other day, finding myself with some time on my hands; I decided to give the Led Zeppelin DVD a spin. (Bad move... Well, not really a bad move - just bad timing. I decided to have a quick look at it on my desktop computer... Just before going to bed. To cut a long story short:)
1) I was completely blown away. (I should have known better after my experience with the "How the West Was Won" CD...)
2) I was up the whole night and I didn't even think about going to bed until way past the time when the sun started beating down on my tin roof!
3) I felt the need to burst into print with this because I have just been watching Jimmy Page's guitar solo in "White Summer," (Live at the Royal Albert Hall, London - 1970) - for about the 10th time already. At the end of the performance, I couldn't restrain myself from bursting into applause - (even though I live alone and only my dogs could have even heard it!) There were tears in my eyes - and I noticed that all the hairs on my ugly legs were standing-up on their ends!
There's also a lump in my throat, as I write this.
I can't say any more...
