Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains
For Led Zeppelin fanatics, this 1976 feature The Song Remains the Same is a treasure of searing live performances, particularly welcome in light of the sad scarcity of such visual material from the band's great decade. Despite the group's road weariness after a long tour, their final, three-night stand at Madison Square Garden in 1973 was full of the old power. Performances of "No Quarter," "Whole Lotta Love," "Black Dog," "Dazed and Confused," and "Stairway to Heaven" underscore Zep's charisma. Trouble is, you don't get an unbroken performance here. Viewers have to wade through a mishmash of documentary insight into the lives of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones, as well as fantasy sequences supposedly inspired by the thoughts and fantasies of the band's individual members. It's mostly garish and silly, but there are some nice elements, especially insights into the late Bonham's life. The DVD doesn't offer much in the way of add-ons (a theatrical trailer is about it), but there is also enhanced viewing for 16 x 9 televisions. --Tom Keogh
Favorite blu ray to watch on a Friday or Saturday still. Some weird scenes but it was the 70'sPublished 1 month ago by Thomas H.
Great purchase. Perfect condition. Wasn't expecting the poorly produced, out of context cutscenes in the film. Kind of disappointing.Published 4 months ago by William Wilczak
Ce blu ray est un show le plus médiatisé et nous avons la chance d'avoir un document des débuts du groupe Led Zeppelin. Read morePublished 4 months ago by pat

Not much to say except great show. Image quality is as good as it can be for an early 70's show.Published 6 months ago by Erick V
