About this album

The Song Remains the Same is the soundtrack live album of the concert film of the same name by the English rock band Led Zeppelin. The album was originally released in 1976, before being remastered and re-issued in 2007.

The recording of the album and the film took place during three nights of concerts at New York’s Madison Square Garden, during the band’s 1973 concert tour of the United States. All songs were recorded by Eddie Kramer using the Wally Heider Mobile Studio truck, and later mixed at Electric Lady Studios in New York and Trident Studios in London.

The album was released on 28 September 1976, by Swan Song Records. The sleeve design depicted a dilapidated movie house located on Old Street film studios in London, which was used by the group for rehearsals prior to their 1973 tour.

Until both the album and the film were remastered and re-released in 2007, there were significant differences between the two in terms of the songs included on each. These differences were as follows:

The film included “Black Dog”, but not “Celebration Day”.
The soundtrack album included “Celebration Day”, but not “Black Dog”.
The film also included “Since I’ve Been Loving You”, the introduction to “Heartbreaker”, the instrumental “Bron-Yr-Aur” (which appeared on Physical Graffiti) and a hurdy gurdy piece called “Autumn Lake”, none of which were featured on the album.

In addition, of the songs that both the album and the film had in common, some of the recordings featured on the album were of different performances from those in the film.

    [original release] I don't have enough words to describe how much this album amuses me. It blows my mind every time. Actually, to me this is one of the ultimate live albums of rock n roll history, along with Live at Leeds (The Who) and many others... I kinda feel happy for mankind because this exists.

    @GregCano Yeah I thought the same regarding the "Achilles Last Stand"-bits :D I just love the version of Dazed and Confused on that album, it's nearly unbelievable what these four guys have done on stage...

    Tagging this with "heavy metal" is just weird...

    @ Dequis I don't see how this album could be boring, it captures the true Cosmic Energy of a Led Zeppelin show and the boxed set is amazing. Yet, after seeing the cynical rubbish on your profile, it's understandable how you could miss it.

    That's because Kevin Shirley "remastered" them.

    Was it an hallucination or did I rally hear bits of "Achilles Last Stand" in the the middle of "Dazed and Confused"? Anyway, brilliant live album. Especially "Dazed and Confused" and "No Quarter". And what an amazing musicianship and chemistry they had.

    The studio version of "stairway..." sounds so clinical and constrained compared to this live one.

    The LIVE versions of many of these songs out the studio versions to shame, especially from Houses of the Holy and LZ III !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There's never enough 20 minute drum solos. Especially when the drummer is John Bonham.
