Led Zeppelin: Dazed & Confused

Led Zeppelin: Dazed & Confused
Led Zeppelin: Dazed & Confused is a documentary DVD that was released on April 10, 2012. It is the brainchild of Sonia Anderson, independent filmmaker, whose credits include documentaries on The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga.

Dazed & Confused contains a wealth of archival footage, both concert and interviews, from early in their career, including the 1969 Danish TV performance up through Robert Plant's years. Many interviews from Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and Jason Bonham are interspersed with the biographical narration from Dave Kelly.

Also, included are interviews and dialogue by rock producer Nick Tauber, film director & friend of Jimmy Page, Tony Palmer and British journalist & author, Kris Needs.

Steve McNerney provided the instrumental & incidental soundtrack to this documentary. To those "more-than-casual" Led Zeppelin fans, you would definitely take note that the soundtrack contains music that sounds nearly identical to studio Zeppelin tracks, however if you are a casual fan, the soundtrack adds to the exemplary storytelling.

This DVD would be perfect for the casual Led Zeppelin fan, as it gives excellent, commonly-known (read basic) facts about the band and their career that has spanned 40 years, including solo, Page/Plant and reunion eras. The concert footage is pretty standard fare, seemingly been released on concert movie The Song Remains The Same or 2003's DVD.

Although you may have seen the bits and pieces of this documentary separately, you have not seen it organized in this way. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. You might learn something.
