Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars In The Realm of Giants Feb. 27 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Led Zeppelin will remain the giants of Rock 'n' Roll for a long time to come. Although they've been criticized for "robbing" the blues greats, the truth as any student of the blues will know is that the tradition of the blues (and folk for that matter) is to take existing songs and then modify them with new variations and improvisations until eventually a new song emerges that's virtually indistinguishable from the original. Led Zeppelin have done this with some of the early songs, especially on the first album, but then developed their own unmistakable sound that has since been imitated but never duplicated. This concert is a document of the band at the peak of their powers, claiming their place as the undisputed biggest band in the world at the time, and for many years after.

"The Song Remains the Same" showcases the band during their 1973 USA tour promoting their Houses of the Holy album, with footage from their three nights at Madison Square Garden in New York. The great (now classic) songs from the first five albums are here, including "Dazed and Confused", "Rock and Roll", "Moby Dick", "Whole Lotta Love", and of course the anthemic "Stairway to Heaven". But this is more than simply a film of the concert, as it includes several "fantasy" sequences for each individual band member, making it into a mix of live concert footage and music video, during the days before music videos were widely available on MTV (and many places elsewhere within a few years). The fantasy sequences are intertwined with the concert film, giving each band member a chance to show his individual personality through imagery only made possible with film.

4.0 out of 5 stars If it wasn't for the fantasy scenes.... March 17 2008
By Gis A. Bun TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
... This would of been an excellent DVD.

I was hoping that when this DVD was reissued that there would of been an option to ignore the fantasy sequencies which we could of done without. Certain portions were obviously staged [selling of unauthorized merchandise is one and when John Paul says the concert is tomorrow when in fact the New York shows were at the end of the leg of the tour).

That said, the audio and video are an incredible improvement over the original edition.

The "Collector's Edition" contains a shrink rapped extra-large [though maybe really a large] t-shirt, cards from various reviews [including a 1-star], replica tickets to various shows, promo snapshots, and a chance to order a fairly large poster [US only].

Second DVD has extras including the trailer, 4 more clips, interviews, etc. Unsure why they didn't keep the concert clips together instead of splitting them up. Video for most of the second DVD wasn't cleaned up.

There is nothing special here,even the so called extras aren't anything to write home about.
But if you like Led Zeppelin this has to be a part of your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best movie! March 11 2012
By Emily
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I cannot say enough good stuff about this movie! I know lots of people say these were not their best performances, but it's still amazing to watch. "Dazed and Confused" and "No Quarter" blew me away. The sound on this movie is great, you can hear pretty much everything quite clearly. I have yet to watch bonus features, I just keep rewatching the concert!
The weird little acting sequences add some variety and interest throught out the movie, because it could get a little dry at times.
I recomend this movie to anyone and everyone! It's amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but major let down! Sept. 23 2012
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The first time I saw this film was at a local high school when I was in grade nine. Was not overly impressed but I did enjoy it. Then around ten years ago they put out the Led Zeppelin DVD set and that was awsome. So I figured when this was being rereleased it would be a lot better. Wrong! First off Jimmy Page took a lot of liberties when doing the DVD. First off almost every song have the vocals double tracked on it. Something he could not do here because people would pick it up right away since most Zep heads have heard the album a thousand times not counting previouse VHS and DVD copies of the film. I was really looking forward to the HD soundtrack. But there are cut out on it that have never been fixed. For real! At some point a drop out was added to the master during Moby Dick. Now I am not a huge of Moby Dick but when a company releases a major music film like this in a mass release and there is a flaw in it during the past this would be recalled and fixed. But not now a days. Now they say it's only a drop out yet the drop out does not occur on the dolby digital track. When Band's as huge as Zeppelin have this happen to them it tells you how bad the industry is screwed up.
The film is shot on a off night. The audio has been majorly sharpened up and the picture has never looked better. If you love Zeppelin you will love this film. Just switch to the Dolby track for Moby Dick or skip it all together. Even thow it is not on Blu Ray Led Zeppelin DVD is by far the best bang for your buck. It covers their whole career and it even has a few songs from the Song to boot! In the words of Otto the bus driver as he is being swept away to his death "Zeppelin Rules"!
