If you like Led Zeppelin then you need to get this, The quality is probably the same as it is on a standard DVD though, because this was made like 30 years ago. My only gripe about this concert is that they didn't play Kashmir..

Product Overview

The line forms - and ends - here for the world's greatest, most influential rock band. With Rock and Roll, Stairway to Heaven, Whole Lotta Love, and more signature songs, this mesmerizing movie built around Led Zeppelin's famed '73 NYC concerts is convincing proof why. Band members supervised the remastering and Dolby 5.1 remixing of the film's soundtrack. Augmenting the performances, fantasy sequences and at-home glimpses of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and the late John Bonham are rare extras including additional songs. It all adds up to the complete Madison Square Garden concert experience. The Song Remains the Same. So does the group's power and place in rock lore. This is the version fans have been waiting for.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review A cult classic of midnight movies and laser shows from the '70s comes to DVD. While not the best work of Led Zeppelin, it's the only live concert footage we have, and it's pretty good. A dizzyingly surreal mix of psychedelic effects, fantasy sequences, scenes of home and family, and a 1973 concert at Madison Square Garden, it begs the question "What the heck were we wearing back then?"...I do have to give this somewhat of a reviewer's tilt for nostalgia value. I think it's worth having, especially for Zeppelin fans, in fact for those it's a must buy...If you consider this a documentary rather than as a concert performance, the ratings go up...Jimmy Page has recently stated that he thinks DVD is the format to use for unearthing their archives, and we can hope that better sounding recordings and concert footage will be forthcoming.

Adam R. Parr, DVDork.com This is just one of those films which every fan of rock n' roll ought to own...a fantastic film...
Time Out Film Guide ...the heavy metal onslaught is intercut with lavish psychedelic effects, New York by night, seedy backstage wrangles, and five fantasy sequences.
