Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day



I have watched the bootleg of the same 02 Show plenty of times and it's one of my favorite bootlegs for a couple of reasons: the raw, uncompressed sound and the lack of edits. Being able to watch a show as seen in bootleg form is the closest thing to actually being their live in person. So I was very curious to see what Celebration Day would bring. Straight up, this is a concert film, which shows on the surface as it is shot on film, including 8mm for this quick little inserts that break up the film in places. Not a bad idea either as it's paying homage to classic Zep era footage of the band from the 70's.

Sonically this DVD is top shelf and one of the best sounding concerts you are ever going to get. The audio mix was practically perfect as each instrument was clear and precise. The highs and lows ring like a bell and thump you with the bottom bass. Good stuff. As mentioned earlier in Mac's review, there are a few spots where the excessive editing takes over and it has a lot to do with the song of choice that is determining where the cuts are being made. Personally, I don't think it's that bad, especially comparing to others (KISS Symphony).

This DVD is an absolute must for any fan of Led Zeppelin and Rock fans. Buy this! But be forewarned, there are a few different packages and I was certain that my Library had the full deluxe edition with all the bonus stuff including band rehearsals. This one did not. It's a bare bones DVD with 2 CD's of the same show. I will be picking up the Deluxe Edition for sure. One last thing, how is it possible for a band to be at the top of their game 30 years after the fact? Simply amazing show. I didn't think it was possible, but I'm a bigger fan of John Paul Jones, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and Jason Bonham because of this one-time Reunion show. And we are lucky to have this DVD to remember it by. Highlite of the show is of course Kashmir. It STILL gives me a thrill hearing that song.
