Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is a good live album. Well, 3/4 (3 sides of the four original sides in the old double LP) of it are good, but there is a boring very long song called "Dazed and Confused", which shows the excesses that some of the bands of the seventies did then on stage.

The combination of "Rock and Roll" and "Celebration Day" played one afte the other is very good. "The Song Remains the Same" is also a powerful version. "The Rain Song" is one of the best performances, with Plant singing with feeling and very good mellotron by Jones, energetic drums by Bonham and very good guitar by Page.

"No Quarter" is very good, "dark", "mysterious", with a heavy lead guitar by Page, powerful drums by Bonham and "dark" electric piano (and bass pedals) by Jones.

"Stairway to Heaven" is powerful, emotional, and the best version of this song that I have listened until now. All the members of the band shine in this song.

"Moby Dick" has an energetic drums solo by Bonham which shows again why he was one of the best and most original Rock drummers.

"Whole Lotta Love" is not as good as the studio version, and with "Dazed and Confused" is one of the weakest points of this live album.But at least in "Whole Lotta Love" the band shows their skills for improvising in a song.

The release of archival material in the "Led Zeppelin" DVD showed that this band had in their archives better performances in their concerts, and that this album and the film of the same name were not the best performances of some songs (with the exception of "Stairway to Heaven", particularlyl).

Three and a half stars rating.
