Rare Gem Indeed...
What a great night out with the boys...I have the whole LZ discography, & have loved their music for decades, but was too young to experience them live since they dissolved in early 1980...Anyhow, what a very pleasant surprise is this DVD, & what a great band they were. Completely engaging for the near 4-hours, boasting 3 x encores, the band display their really relaxed stage presence & phenomenal stage-craft, along with an exceptional selection of tunes for everyone to enjoy.
Picture quality is far better than you may think, & the sound quality is quite good too, being a desk-recording for sure, with my only complaint being that Jimmy's acoustic guitar is low in the mix when played, however his electric-guitar -performance clearly displays why he's a guitar god. Bonzo is in great form, & even though the tempo of some tunes speeds & slows here & there, the band is locked into that powerful pulse. John Paul Jones is quite a multi instrumentalist, see-to-believe performance IMO. And the biggest surprise for me was how well spoken Robert Plant is & how great a front-man he is, by being able to befriend everyone in the audience with the in-between song chit-chat. His voice really delivers the goods too, after a few numbers into the set. This show easily displays why they were the best at what they did...Raw & unedited, the show is awesome !
