Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same (2-disc Special Edition)
(PG) Movie: 3 1/2 star out of 4
Disc: 4 stars out of 4
It's not the greatest concert film of all time, but "The Song Remains the Same" easily captures Led Zeppelin at the band's creative zenith.
Culled from Zeppelin's 1973 three-night stand at Madison Square Garden, the movie also includes five fantasy sequences, conceived by each band member and manager Peter Grant.
In addition to four unreleased songs, the new set is packed with goodies, and the remastered audio supervised by Jimmy Page is crisp and flawless.
Also available is a boxed collector's edition, priced at $44.98, which comes with a T-shirt, lobby cards and more. The HD and Blue-ray editions will be released on Dec. 11.
Technical specifications: aspect ratio: Widescreen anamorphic (1.85:1), audio: English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, DTS 5.1 and original 2.0 Stereo, subtitles: English, French and Spanish.
Special features include:
Never before released performances of "Over the Hills and Far Away," "Celebration Day," "Misty Mountain Hop" and "The Ocean"
1976 BBC interview with Robert Plant and Grant
(Warner Bros., $20.97)
