4 stars This must be the greatest rock DVD ever, since it features one of the most exciting bands of the seventies in their prime, and it's far more generous than any comparable releases. The first three main concerts we get to see (either whole, or in excerpts) are all superb. The final concert (i.e. seven songs from the legendary Knebworth come-back) may be more hit-and-miss, but it's still noteworthy because of the splendid performances of two of Zep's most epic numbers, "Achilles' last stand" and "Kashmir". The extras are also fascinating, particularly Zep's appearances in front of a sympathetic young crowd in a Danish TV studio, and of a decidedly more sceptical studio audience in France.

Perhaps the best footage is of the band's 1973 performances in Madison Square Garden - surprisingly, since these are leftovers from the much-derided "official concert film" THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME (which I haven't seen).

All in all, this two-disc set is a model of its kind, and undoubtedly the most important addition to Led Zeppelin discography since 1975. I only wish all your favourite PROG bands were given the chance to treat you to something similar...
