Fourteen years of speculation from their fans and occasional sniping between the two former members ended when Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin reconvened their former musical partnership to produce No Quarter. Having long resisted offers from MTV to reform to do an Unplugged show, they finally accepted as part of a deal that also allowed them to visit Morocco to record new material. The album combines the results of both of these projects. The Led Zeppelin material features new arrangements and new instrumentation, including strings, Egyptian musicians and the haunting vocals of British-Asian star Najma Akhtar. The selection of songs is notable for including some of their lesser-known classics and all of the re-arrangements are well thought-out and executed. "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and "No Quarter" are almost completely revamped, and the latter in particular sounds terrific. The four new tracks are not always fully developed as songs--the three recorded with native musicians in Morocco, of which "Yallah" is a highlight, appear to be tantalising fragments of longer jams. Nevertheless, they are always interesting. The fourth track, "Wonderful One", is a moving ballad on which Plant's voice, which throughout the album appears better than ever before, gets yet another chance to shine

Saw Zeppelin at the Mayfair Ballroom in Newcastle in October 1968 - brilliant. Got loads of their stuff. This is a good find - heat added. ;-)

Wow, spooky, I only downloaded this last week.
I have actually got this somewhere in the house but can't find it at the moment, hence the download. ( Honest M'lud ).
I saw these a long time ago at the Empire Pool Wembley. I was sat centre stage four rows from the front.
Absolutely brilliant.
Bought a poster at the time for the equivalent of about 30p. It is now worth an arm and a leg.
Do you think I can find it?


Edit, It's the DVD that I have.

Hope they release the full footage of the dome show from 2007 soon because everyone who missed out should get to see how great they still are!

A mate of mine went to see that. He had a spare ticket and had no-one to take so it went to waste.
I could have killed him.
