Rock's premier metalmen Led Zeppelin, whose blend of gutsy blue and scathing rock catapulted them into the music world's pantheon, take you on a spellbinding journey of song and imagination. This high-impact movie captures the group's legendary 1973 Madison Square Garden concert and uncorks a freewheeling mix of scenes showing group members at home and in elaborate fantasy settings.

Robert Plant's raw lead vocals, Jimmy Page's explosive riffery and the sonic-boom rhythm wall of bassist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham all swirl, clash and collide - on classic tunes like Stairway to Heaven, Dazed and Confused, Whole Lotta Love and many others. No one goes down heavier than Zep!

I'd be interested to know how this is on Bluray if anyone has it.
I've got the DVD of it and the production/picture quality aint that great.

Id be interested too-reviews on play seem good as to remastering quality-Im seriously tempted to buy this if anyone can confirm its a good remaster to bluray-the queen rocks montreal one is utterly stunning and thats about the same age,and the original quality similar so it can be done if it isnt a rush job.

It was recorded for the cinema originally so it will be bluray quality.
Ive got the dvd too and agree the production was dire.
#4
actually it more than a pound cheaper at amazon and they have it in stock whereas play is 1-2 weeks-however there is a coupla negative reviews on amazon on quality. might take a punt at less than a tenner on amazon

I have it on DVD and HD-DVD (bought for about £2) and can confirm it's *much* better on HD-DVD than normal DVD.

Hope that helps.

Copy and paste from the above link:

Considering the fact that 'The Song Remains the Same' has been delayed on Blu-ray, oh, about 1,543 times now, a healthy amount of anticipation has built up around this release. After such a long wait, fans will be expecting a top-flight remaster, which this 1080p/VC-1 encode almost achieves. Like the film itself, the concert scenes rule, but the rest is a bit more suspect.

The hokey interlude material can be dodgy. Blacks are never rock solid, and there is some noticeable variance in contrast. The print is also not pristine, with uneven grain and a few speckles (though nothing severe). The image always lacks depth and the kind of fine-textured detail that high-def can showcase even on a film that's as old as this one.

That said, the concert scenes fare much better. Though blacks are never sensational, contrast is more consistent and colors bolder. Stage and lighting design in the '70s is certainly archaic by today's standards, but the nice use of strong reds and blues on key songs is rendered with nice stability. The more dynamic visuals also help create apparent depth, with the image sometimes boasting nice dimensionality for a 1976 film. This is also a solid VC-1 encode, with surprisingly little in the way of banding or noise issues.
