    Synopsis


    Led Zeppelin
    This double-DVD set includes more than five hours of never-before-available concert and performance footage from Led Zeppelin, spanning the years 1969-1979. While enthusiasts have been trading poor quality versions of this material for years, this marks the first archival video release to contain any footage of the band playing live. The main feature on the first disc includes highlights of the band's legendary set at the Royal Albert Hall January 9, 1970. If there was ever any doubt as to the power and intricate legerdemain of Jimmy Page (guitar), Robert Plant (vocal/harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass/keyboards/mandolin), and John Bonham (drums), this performance will silence all detractors. The dozen songs from this show are derived primarily from the band's first two LPs, with a few well-chosen covers thrown in for good measure. One particularly interesting inclusion is Plant's spontaneous incorporation of a few lines from Neil Young's "Down by the River" and "On the Way Home" during an epic "How Many More Times." Supplementary shorts on disc one feature a promotional video for "Communication Breakdown" (with the band miming to a pre-recorded audio track), a half-hour mini-show for Danish Television, a clip of "Dazed and Confused" from the British TV program Supershow, as well as a pair of tunes ("Communication Breakdown" and "Dazed and Confused") for the French TV show Tous En Scene. The second DVD fast forwards to the '70s and continues with a trio of main attractions and a slew of extras. First up is a composite video for "Immigrant Song," which contains some amateur footage married to a previously unissued live version of the song. This is followed by outtakes from the motion picture The Song Remains the Same (1976), which finds the quartet at Madison Square Garden in 1973. The oft-bootlegged 1975 Earl's Court is up next, highlighted by acoustic renderings of "Going to California" and "That's the Way." The last extended set finds Zep during its triumphant return to England in 1979. It would ultimately be a bittersweet affair, as it turned out to be the band's final performance in its homeland prior to the death of Bonham the following year. Extras on disc two include a few interview clips and promotional videos for "Over the Hills and Far Away" and "Traveling Riverside Blues" -- both circa the Led Zeppelin (1990) four-CD box set. ~ Lindsay Planer, Rovi

      A Live Vision of the Gods!

      Posted

      Led Zeppelin was a group that seemed to be bigger than Rock itself during their heyday in the 70's and even into today. They have always been lacking on concert footage that you could get your hands on but with this release you get a glimpse of how truly powerful they were on stage and off, as interviews and a couple of promo videos are also included. From their beginnings to their end you can watch as Led Zeppelin transforms into the ultimate Rock Gods. You will see their early performance on Danish TV up until there final concert in the UK at Knebworth in 1979, which is the most brilliant sight and sound concert you will ever lay your eyes on. As a fan of Zeppelin or just anyone in general this purchase will allow you to slip away into a better place as you watch the greatest Rock band of all time as they grow before your eyes. This is a must own for anyone on this planet who has the breathe of life in them.

      If you are a Zeppelin head like myself this newest collection of concert footage will not dissapoint. They show the band during several of the most legendary and historically important concerts shot throughout the course of their run. Nice to see the minor changes in playing styles over the ten year period shown. I would have like to have seen more interview footage though to go along with it. Thumbs up.
