5.0 out of 5 stars The best, Nov. 28 2012
Haven't gotten through the whole DVD yet. Just watched "In My Time of Dying" and I'm pumped. My favourite off Physical Graffiti. I remember being a teen listening to that song in amazement. And I'm still amazed by it. This is one of the all time greatest rock bands still showing why they are the best. Keep in mind I haven't heard the entire show yet, but my early impression is I love that they're not trying to sound like current heavy metal or whatever. They're not giving new interpretations. They're giving fans what we want to hear, classic Led Zeppelin. Great music, great playing. Nice to see all these guys together along with Jason.

The group should also be of interest to… Read more
Original Album Classics ~ Ted Nugent
4.0 out of 5 stars Nugent solo work, April 8 2012
Ted's first solo record, Ted Nugent, is his classic. This is Detroit City rock at its best. Of the albums here this is the one I'll listen to the most. I'm not sure what he had in mind for Free-for-all. Maybe he was trying to be respectable, and this record shows why Ted shouldn't strive for respectability. There is some impressive guitar work here, so axe maniacs might want to listen to this album solely for that, but for me none of the songs here cuts it. An interesting but disappointing effort. Cat Scratch Fever is Ted's commercial classic, one of his best and the record that introduced me to him. It was great listening to it again. Weekend Warriors is ok, but nothing more. It has some… Read more
