THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME
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!
