The Song Remains The Same

The Song Remains The Same
[Click above for album images]

Led Zeppelin was no stranger to the camera. In March 1969, they were in front of the camera no less than 3 times. In January 1970, they funded the Royal Albert Hall performance to be filmed. Although nothing came out of it at the time but a bootleg video, the footage was included in 2003's DVD. Other filming was done in 1971 and 1972 in Australia.

In May 1973, Joe Massot approached Peter Grant about filming the band. Grant turned him down but took him back up on the offer mid-July 1973. Two band was filing on and off the stage from July 23 through July 29, 1973. Additional filming was set for 1975/1976 but Robert Plant's accident prevented that.

The Song Remains The Same premiered in US theaters on October 21, 1976 and British theaters on November 5, 1976. Many theaters were packed thereafter with midnight showings. It was released in the UK on VHS in 1984 and followed by the US in 1991.

In 1999, the long-awaited DVD was released in the US. It, however, didnt contain any additional footage, so the release wasn't extremely noteworthy.

A re-release, dubbed "Remastered/Expanded" was released on November 19 (UK) and November 20 (US), 2007. It includes more than 40 minutes of added bonus material, including never-before-released performance footage of Over the Hills and Far Away and Celebration Day, plus performances of Misty Mountain Hop and The Ocean, a rare 1976 BBC interview with Robert Plant and Peter Grant, vintage TV footage from the Drake Hotel robbery during the New York concert stand, and a Cameron Crowe radio show.
