I thought I’d give this a quick mention since it’s the only CD I bought while on vacation.
These recordings are so, so, so much better than the limp Song Remains The Same. It’s great to finally hear them live up to their “live rock gods” legend (actually, I do have a tape I made off of a radio broadcast made years and years ago…I wonder if it’s from the same era).
Tight, furious, heavy and bluesy. Check out the version of “Rock and Roll” on disc 3. It’s so good it just might make you forget that danged Cadillac commercial.
There are way too many highlights to enumerate here. But if you’re looking for a great example of Zeppelin at their peak of power then this is the CD for you.
ps. It’s funny but it bothers me when that squeaky drum pedal is “missing” during “Since I’ve Been Loving You”…maybe I spent too much time listening to Led Zeppelin III back in the day.
pps. Is it just me or is “How The West Was Won” a fricken terrible title?
