Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Song Remains The Same’ To Be Reissued On September 7th

Music News

Coming on September 7th is Led Zeppelin’s legendary 1976 soundtrack to its classic concert film The Song Remains The Same, with the reissue featuring newly remastered sound supervised by Jimmy Page. This release follows the recent reissue of their live album How The West Was Won, and rounds out the deluxe reissue series of their classic albums that began in 2014, building to the band’s 50th anniversary celebration starting this year. The Song Remains The Same was recorded at New York’s Madison Square Garden on July 27th, 28th, and 29th, 1973, when the band was on tour behind their chart-topping Houses Of The Holy album. The double live album was released on October 22nd, 1976 and went on to peak at Number Two on the Billboard 200 albums chart

According to the press release, the new edition “will be released in multiple formats, including the full album’s debut in hi-res 5.1 surround sound on Blu-ray. The ‘Super Deluxe Boxed Set’ will be the most exquisite and elaborate release in the reissue series, recreating the intricate embossing of the set’s original issue and will also mark the first time the full length film and soundtrack have been available in the same package. On the four-LP set, Page made a change to the track sequence, allowing the epic, 29-minute version of “Dazed And Confused” to be featuring in its entirety on one side of vinyl for the first time.”

Back in 1976, Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant and Robert Plant spoke about what set The Song Remains The Same movie apart from the pack: “(Peter Grant): It isn’t rock fantasy. I think the main thing was to get over the fact that it wasn’t just a film of a concert. I mean, there’s been lots of, sort of — well, not lots — but there’s been quite a few films that have just been concerts on a stage and we wanted to get beyond that. (Robert Plant): Yeah, if we’re going to be self indulgent, we’re might as well try to expand our indulgence a little bit, y’know?”

The CD and digital tracklisting to the The Song Remains The Same – Soundtrack is: “Rock And Roll,” “Celebration Day,” “Black Dog,” “Over The Hills And Far Away,” “Misty Mountain Hop,” “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” “No Quarter,” “The Song Remains The Same,” “The Rain Song,” “The Ocean,” “Dazed And Confused,” “Stairway To Heaven,” “Moby Dick,” “Heartbreaker,” and “Whole Lotta Love.”
