    Haven't seen any reviews yet, but the local classic rock station here in San Antonio (home form the summer from A&M) played a live Black Dog off the new CD. It sounded great. Sound quality was phenominal, at least for an FM broadcast (need to hear the CD to make final judgements there), and the energy was awesome. Should be a great combo between teh 3 CD and 2 DVD sets.

    I was thinking the same thing about the lack of reviews. Then it occured to me that this is a 'no brainer' for a LOT of people and it's gonna sell like hotcakes regardless of what any reviews say. I wanted a review for the audio quality mostly since we know the video will be of varying degrees of quality.

    Bottom line is I guess most sites feel a review is unnecessary for this title, and I pretty much agree. If they told me it looked and sounded bad I would still buy it being the long time Led-Hed that I am. I'm sure Jimmy wouldn't let that happen though. [​IMG]

    I have been dancing for two weeks now with Atlantic PR over this title. They initially sent a one-disc sampler--obviously insufficient to write a review of the two-disc set. After a week's worth of emails and phone calls (and a bizarre last-minute request to "call our West Coast office"), I finally received a new package.

    Inside: another copy of the sampler.

    This might explain the lack of pre-release reviews.

    This site has some great info on the CD & the DVD. Click on the news and you can watch a 4 minute clip of Kashmir from Knebworth 1979. Everything I have seen and heard about this dual release has me frothing. Video is supposed to be good and the sound quality is supposed to be amazing.

    They may have spliced different Knebworth performances together. I just watched about a minute of it from the website and I noticed 2 obvious differences from the Knebworth footage I have.

    Cant wait!!!!

    Man, caught an absolutely scorching live version of Over the Hills and Far Away off HtWWW on KZEP today. This is gonna be a nice double whammy if the rest of the CD and then the DVD live up to what it could be.

    You can go to Atlantic records website and filter to the Zeppelin area. There is a real audio sampler from H.T.W.W.W. including Immigrant Song, Black Dog, The Ocean, Over the Hills and Far Away and Heartbreaker. Sounds great, but the DVD is what I'm dyin to have.

    I just spent a 1/2 hour checking out the set. In a word: WOW! I can't believe how great the picture and sound are!
    Way better than I hoped! The audio is offered in PCM, Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1. The DTS is fantastic! The stereo PCM remaster is also beautiful. The Dolby seemed a little flat in comparison; it just didn't have the detail of the PCM or DTS tracks. The surrounds (in 5.1) are mostly used for crowd noise and ambience.

    The outtakes from THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME are great. I sure hope the DVD of the film gets restored to the level of the outtakes from this set.

    I'm a little puzzled by Warner's lack of support for DTS on their movies, while most of their music library gets great DTS support. I guess if it's "either or", I'll take DTS for their music releases.

    I'll be watching the entire set later tonight. I'm anxious for the CD set next week! Thank you, Warner, for this great set!
