|The Ultimate version, The Song Remains the Same, Epanded & Remastered 4 x 180gram LP Box Set.
Led Zeppelinís sold-out concert tours became rituals of high-energy rock and roll theater. The Song Remains The Same attests to the groupís powerful and somewhat saturnalian appeal at the height of their popularity. - From the Rock and Roll Hall of Fameís web page on the bandís 1995 induction.
The Hall of Fameís assessment of the legendary band also states, ĎLed 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.í That power is communicated full-force in the updated, 4LP (and 2CD) reissue of the soundtrack to their concert film The Song Remains The Same. First released in 1976, the recording captures a celebrated three-night stand at NYCís 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 membersí direct oversight. Featuring liner notes by Oscar winning director and former Rolling Stone editor Cameron Crowe.
