Led Zep have announced they will be reissuing the soundtrack to ‘The Song Remains The Same’ in all formats, plus giving its full debut release in Hi-Re 5.1 surround sound on Blu-Ray, on September 7th.
Recorded over July 27th-29th 1973 at New York’s Madison Square Gardens when the band were at the peak of their powers, and touring to promote their then studio release, Houses of the Holy, the soundtrack to the film The Song Remains The Same was originally released on Swan Song in 1976. But a new edition will be released in September, featuring new remastered audio. This release follows on from the recent issuing of their ‘live’ album, How The West Was Won, and rounds out the deluxe reissues series of their classic albums which began in 2014, building up to the band’s 50th anniversary in 2018.
The Song remains The same will be released in multiple formats from Atlantic / Swan Song. The super deluxe boxed set will be the most exquisite and elaborate release in the recent reissues 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, Jimmy Page has made a change to the track sequencing, which allows for the epic 29 minute version of ‘Dazed and Confused’ to be featured in its entirety on one side of vinyl for the first time. The 2 CD and 4 LP collections are packed with electrifying live versions of Zep classics, including ‘Rock and Roll,’ ‘Stairway to Heaven.’ ‘Moby Dick,’ ‘No Quarter’ and ‘Whole Lotta Love.’
