Background: Released as a soundtrack to a concert film, The Song Remains the Same was Led Zeppelin’s first live album. The LP reached #1 in the UK and #2 on the U.S. album charts.
…It was the kind of excess that creates either myth or madness, and this 1976 live album — comprised of highlights from their three shows at Madison Square Garden during July 1973 — has its fair share of both, as Zeppelin sounds both magnificent and murky as they blow up songs from their first five albums to a ridiculously grand scale. …This, more than any of their studio albums, captures both the grandiosity and entitlement that earned the band scorn among certain quarters of rock critics and punk rockers in the mid-’70s, which makes it a valuable historical document in an odd way, as the studio records are such magnificent constructions and the archival live albums so powerful.
