Set to arrive 50 years to the date of the band’s first live show – as The New Yardbirds – in Gladsaxe, Denmark in 1968, “The Song Remains The Same” soundtrack will be available via multiple formats, plus the full album’s debut release in Hi-Res 5.1 surround sound on Blu-ray. As a preview to the release, Led Zeppelin are streaming live audio of their remastered 1971 classic, “Rock And Roll”, it’s available to listen below!
It’s also the first time the full-length film and soundtrack have been released in the same package. Led Zeppelin was at the peak of their powers on July 27-29 1973 when the band’s performances at New York’s Madison Square Garden were recorded for the concert film, The Song Remains The Same. The soundtrack to the film, produced by Jimmy Page, was originally released on Swan Song in 1976. The remastered live version brings out Page’s guitar with full force:
The band continues revisiting their live canon on September 7th with a new edition of the soundtrack to The Song Remains The Same that features newly remastered audio. 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 slated to commence later this year.
The Song Remains The Same will be released in multiple formats from Atlantic/Swan Song, 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 4-LP set, Page made a change to the track sequence, allowing the epic, 29-minute version of ‘Dazed And Confused’ to be featured in its entirety on one side of vinyl for the first time.
