Led Zeppelin DVD

Led Zeppelin (DVD)

Led Zeppelin is a double DVD set by the English rock band Led Zeppelin. The recording of the DVD spans the years from 1969 to 1979 and includes performances from the Royal Albert Hall in 1970, Madison Square Garden in 1973, Earls Court in 1975, and Knebworth in 1979, plus other footage. The DVD was released in the United Kingdom on May 26, 2003 and the United States on May 27, 2003. Bootleg footage from some of the concerts is interspersed with the professionally shot material. Led Zeppelin guitarist, and producer of the DVD, Jimmy Page, put out an open request for bootleg footage for specific concert dates to bootleg traders, many of whom complied.

Much of the footage was painstakingly restored for almost a year. Some of the video tapes were so old and brittle, they had to be baked in ovens in order to regain their flexibility. The audio portions were digitally remixed for stereo and 5.1 surround mixes.

The RIAA certified the Led Zeppelin DVD at 10.00x platinum on July 7, 2003, in recognition of 500,000 shipments in the United States alone. It was, for three years the highest selling music DVD in America. As of November 2007, the DVD has had an overwhelmingly positive number of reviews on website Amazon, with 559 out of 617 reviewers giving it five stars.
