Led Zeppelin Mothership- Review

The Song Remains the Same

November 2007, Led Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Same is being remastered. We'll have the audio and DVD on the same page. 

I remember when the original release in 1976 came out. The excitement for that was much higher than this remastering. Even though this release offers much, much more. Thirty years and three additional live Led Zeppelin offerings will do that. When the album The Song Remains the Same came out there was a limit to around 45 minutes per LP side that forced them to eliminate several songs, which wouldn't be a problem in today's 80 minutes per side CD's.  

To date, the three other live Zeppelin releases are  BBC Sessions, How the West Was Won, and Led Zeppelin DVD. The tour for The Song Remains the Same captures the band performing material throughout their career and includes several songs from their 1973 Houses of the Holy album, which are not on any of the other releases. Specifically, "No Quarter," "The Song Remains The Same," and "Rain Song" aren't available in either DVD or audio. Others tracks like "Over the Hills and Far Away" and Led Zeppelin II's "Heartbreaker" were released in live audio, but never on DVD. 

Several of the additional tracks not on the original The Song Remains the Same release were included on the Led Zeppelin DVD

Product Description
Led Zeppelin s sold-out concert tours became rituals of high-energy rock and roll theater. The SONG REMAINS THE SAME...attests to the group s powerful and somewhat saturnalian appeal at the height of their popularity.
- from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame s web page on the band s 1995 induction
The Hall of Fame s assessment of the legendary band also states, Led Zeppelin redefined rock in the Seventies and for all time. They were as influential in that decade as the Beatles were in the prior one...Then and now, Led Zeppelin looms larger than life on the rock landscape as a band for the ages with an almost mystical power to evoke primal passions. That power is communicated full-force in the updated, 2CD reissue of the soundtrack to their concert film THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME. First released in 76, the recording captures a celebrated three-night stand at NYC s Madison Square Garden in July 1973. The newly updated edition now contains six songs not featured on the original release, and the entire project was remixed and remastered with the band members direct oversight. Featuring liner notes by Oscar-winning director and former Rolling Stone editor Cameron Crowe, the set will be released simultaneously by Warner Home Video with the new, expanded DVD edition of the film.
