The Song Remains The Same DVD

Ever since the 1976 theatrical release, Led Zeppelin fans noticed that The Song Remains The Same wasn't right. Jimmy Page's fingers weren't moving together with the sound, John Paul Jones wore three different outfits, abrupt tempo and musical changes (ie: bad splicing) and what's up with those fantasy scenes?

Well, John Paul Jones still has the same bad clothes and Jimmy Page still climbs to the top of the mountain only to find himself, however Jimmy Page and producer Kevin Shirley have made a valiant attempt to match the audio up with the visuals. Due to legal restrictions, the video couldn't be altered visually. On top of that, the audio has been remastered and remixed in Dolby 5.1 aural goodness.

Something new, which wasn't included in 1997's direct-to-DVD release, is the addition of a second disc of extras. The extras include two never-before-released performances of Celebration Day, Over The Hills And Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop and The Ocean (which were included in 2003's DVD), TV Footage about the 1973 Tampa concert, Led Zeppelin robbed during the MSG concerts, Robert Plant's BBC Interview, the original movie trailer and a Radio Profile Spotlight by Cameron Crowe from 1976.

All in all, this release is greatly desired and appreciated. Hopefully, it is the first of many more things to come from Jimmy Page and company.
