Led Zeppelin The Song Remains the Same on 180g Vinyl 4LP Box Set
Half-Speed Mastered and Cut by Stan Ricker, Pressed at RTI for Genuine Audiophile Quality: New Remastering Gives Iconic Live Album The Song Remains the Same New Life
The soundtrack to Led Zeppelin's landmark concert film, The Song Remains the Same captures highlights from the band's amazing 3-night stand at Madison Square Garden in 1973. Newly remastered, remixed, and expanded with six previously unreleased historic performances – "Black Dog" (including "Bring it on Home"), "Over the Hills and Far Away," "Misty Mountain Hop," "Since I've Been Loving You," "The Ocean," "Heartbreaker" – this enhanced version beats every aspect of the 1976 original. The differences are profound: You will hear this as if you've never heard it before.
Much of the improvement is due to the astounding sonics. Half-speed mastered and cut by the legendary Stan Ricker, and supervised by the band, these LPs dramatically better the musical presentation. While the original suffered from a distant perspective and dry tones, this reissue explodes with liveliness and detail. The Song Remains the Same sounds like a completely new record.
The archival 180-gram 4-LP box set comes with a full-color booklet with liner notes from producer Cameron Crowe and a faithful replication of the classic cover art.
