This movie, as wonderful as it is, is in my opinion for Zep- fans only. Those interested in good music(concert)DVD should go for the marvellous Led Zeppelin: DVD, as it offers excellent classic rock and stage performances for all music-lovers out there.
Of course, this dvd too offers good music, lots of it, and great snippets (and more) of Led Zeppelin in concert, the concert being Madison Square Garden in 1973. Wonderful, wonderful. This material is essential at least to all of us hardcore Zep-fans. :o)
Sound isn't exactly the same quality as in DVD, but no means bad either. Only gripe is the (rare) spoken lines, the volume has to be turned louder to hear them. (Actually, I have to do that in the concert snippets in DVD, too) Picture is softer, as it is in these elder materials in any releases, no biggie to me. It's not like the guys are blurry or anything.
Then there are the beautiful takes of the band in their homes, with their family. (filmed in '76) Nice. Especially love the Bonzo-parts. Down-to-earth -material (all of them).
But the real treat to me are the fantasy sequences. Love them, love them to bits. I think every Zep-lover is able to appreciate these fun fantasies, which give us a wider view of these guys. My favourite part is Robert's knight fantasy. Just watch his face! Sometimes he looks like he could burst out laughing any minute! They were most certainly having fun when filming. :oD
I just have to give this a fiver, this is such an entertaining piece of work. Go, LedZep!
So, all you who can't get enough of this teeny weeny group called Led Zeppelin. Go ahead, treat yourself and spend a lovely (weekend) afternoon! :o)
