5 stars I will not give a long review on this DVD because it would simply not explain the impact that this DVD has had on my life and my perception of music. I always liked Led Zeppelin before I saw this DVD, but seeing it made me worship them. The first disc shows early Zeppelin in all their blues rock glory. Every single member is stoned out of his mind, and still manages to kick major ass. Plant is at the height of his vocal talent, Page is rocking as always, and Jones and Bonham simply kill it. Highlights are We're Gonna Groove, I Can't Quit You Baby, and White Summer (which blew my freaking mind when I saw it). Disc Two has some wonderful additions to it as well, notably the songs taken from their 1975 performance at Earl's Court. They start off with Going to California, go into That's the Way, which I had never heard before I saw this DVD and was absolutely floored by how beautiful a performance it was, and then Bron-Y-Aur Stomp. Then, they do some Physical Graffiti stuff at much faster tempos than on the album. Frankly, I liked In My Time of Dying and Trampled Underfoot on the album, but the live versions seen here blow them out of the water. Jimmy Page's solos on both songs are positively mind-blowing. The set ends with a pretty good version of Stairway, too. The other song worth mentioning on Disc Two is Since I've Been Loving You. If someone doesn't get the blues, show them this performance. Page's guitar absolutely weeps on this song, and it is my favorite Zeppelin song of all time. I know I said I wouldn't give this a long review; I guess I lied. I will end it on this note, though. I would recommend that every single rock fan watch this DVD. I don't care if you don't even like Led Zeppelin. This live performance is without a doubt one of the most amazing things to have ever happened in rock music to date.
