Rhythm - - BEAT! - (CBu)

Clas­sic live movie of the mas­ter in ac­tion

It was Zep man­ager Peter Grant who de­creed that a filmed con­cert by the band could only be done jus­tice on the big screen. The Song

Re­mains The Same was re­leased to cin­e­mas in 1976, a full three years af­ter three nights at Madi­son Square Gar­den were recorded at the end of a gru­elling 1973 tour.

As this re­mas­ter­ing shows, the band were at the peak of their pow­ers. Par­tic­u­lar Bon­ham high­lights in­clude, ob­vi­ously, ‘Moby Dick’, on which Bonzo’s mas­tery of the kit has never sounded bette: ev­ery im­pro­vised hit is bril­liant. His jam­ming with JPJ in the mid­dle of an elon­gated ‘Whole Lotta Love’, as well as on ‘Heart­breaker’ and ‘The Song Re­mains The Same’, are sim­ply Bon­ham’s ge­nius fully doc­u­mented. Aside from the DVD and Blu-ray, you can also get just the sound­track on dou­ble CD, or four vinyl LPs with the full 29-minute ver­sion of ‘Dazed And Con­fused’. Phew!
