Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Product Description

Alfred Music Publishing is the world-s largest educational music publisher. Alfred produces educational, reference, pop, and performance materials for teachers, students, professionals, and hobbyists spanning every musical instrument, style, and difficulty level.

Clocking in at nearly five and a half hours, this DVD has been created from the few performances which were ever filmed during the band's lifetime: London's Royal Albert Hall in 1970, London's Earl's Court in 1975, and at England's Knebworth Festival in 1979, just one year before the death of drummer John Bonham. Visually and sonically stunning, this DVD has been painstakingly restored, remixed and remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, DTS, and PCM 2-Channel Stereo under the supervision of Jimmy Page.

5.0 out of 5 stars The mother lode of live Led Zeppelin March 10 2003
Format:DVD
Well, this 2-DVD set is yet to be released but I'm still rating it at five stars. The press release put out by Atlantic Records describes the set and the accompanying 3-CD live set as the "mother lode of Led Zeppelin live recordings"!
Slated for a simultaneous May 27 release, this marks the first-ever official release of rare and legendary performances spanning Led Zeppelin's entire career.
But the DVD and CD sets contain entirely different material so there is no overlap between the two releases.
Clocking in at nearly five-and-a-half hours, The "Led Zeppelin DVD" has been culled from just a handful of performances ever filmed during the band's lifetime.
Guitarist Jimmy Page explained: "We were never really part of the pop scene. It was never what Led Zeppelin was supposed to be about. Our thing was playing live. In that sense, Zeppelin was very much an underground band. The fact that it became as successful as it did was something that was almost out of our control. We actually shunned commercialism, which is why so little official footage of the band has ever been seen before."
Featured on the DVD are performances from London's Royal Albert Hall in January 1970, just a year after the release of their debut album, their five-night run at London's Earl's Court in May 1975 and their record-breaking shows at England's Knebworth Festival in August 1979, just a year before drummer John Bonham's death led to the band's dissolution.
Also included are songs from New York's Madison Square Garden in July 1973 that were not included in "The Song Remains The Same" concert film, the only previously released live Zeppelin footage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes it's amazing July 20 2004
Format:DVD
this DVD is the most incredible DVD you'll ever slide into your DVD player. I must admit I bought it as a new Zeppelin listener, sure I had heard their hits like stairway to heaven, dazed and confused, etc. and I actually put down the 20-something dollars for the dvds on a complete impulse buy, a whim if you will. I had no IDEA what I was about to experience!!! I have become an avid Zeppelin fan ever since. everyone can enjoy this dvd, heck I've put it into the player at parties I've held and people forget their card games or beer bonging sessions and everyone congregates around the television. If you have ears whether they like classic rock or heavy manson rock, you will love and enjoy this incredible set of dvds. One time I actually misplaced the DVD set and was so adamate about it I almost went out and bought it again!! I would have!! it's that good, but thankfully I found it in my freezer some drunk kid thought it was too hot cuz we played it so long at the party it had to cool off!! haha well I've said my part, this dvd should be owned by everyone on the planet and that's putting it lightly.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets... period. July 1 2004
Format:DVD
This world has not ever seen, nor probably ever will see, a band more talented than Led Zeppelin. Each individual is probably at least one of the three or four best at what they do of all time, and as a cohesive unit the ESP and chemistry is often unbelievable (e.g. the spontaneous 'funky' middle section of "Whole Lotta Love" from Knebworth).
The package here is unbelievable -- so it seems, and then you listen and watch and you are captivated. First off, disc one presents an entire early show of Zeppelin performing in classic 'tight, but loose' style. These guys knew they were amazing, and you can tell they just want to go nuts on stage, but instead come off as reserved... the band was new and didn't have the 'creative license' that they had once four or five albums had come out and the whole experience was more welcomed. If you want to see a good hard rock concert, then the Royal Albert Hall disc is your best bet.
However, if you want a live experience, just go on to disc two. The Sydney performance of 'Immigrant Song' is much more animated than the surprisingly dated-looking 1970 show. Once Madison Square Garden arrives, the band has full command on stage and really knows how to work the crowd. Just one of the bonuses is getting to hear a new 'Since I've Been Loving You,' with Page's ever-evolving solo work. 'The Ocean' is a tremendous piece of business that goes back to more of a traditional rock show feel and sets the juxtaposed stage of Earl's Court perfectly. The acoustic set shown there might highlight the entire DVD set, as a side of Zeppelin generally ignored by their critics makes itself manifest.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I gave this double set DVD 5 stars, considering there is not a lot of Zep concert footage out there partly because the members of Zeppelin shunned the attention in those days. They wanted there music to do the talking and not there stage presence. Thankfully Jimmy page amassed many archives of whatever footage was out there, plus whatever limited footage they allowed themselves to be involved in. This DVD set was put together under Jimmy pages guidance and approval. If your a true Zeplin fan you definitely won't be disappointed in your purchase, SO Ramble On!

4.0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin DVD
I was rather disappointed with this DVD it seemed like the audience was faked rather than live.
Also the songs were not enjoyable to me but there were some good ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection
This is a great addition to any Led Zeppelin collection. I am grateful that there is footage from a time where people didn't think much about filming things for posterity.
