New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

Recommended Posts

Huzzah, I've found the Blu-ray Audio disc for less than £20, half the price of my cancelled Amazon UK order. I have a little wait because it's coming from abroad, can't wait to compare the sound with True HD sound of the 2007 Blu-ray, really hope it's an upgrade.

So with all the numerous threads on this release, can anyone explain if the audio release has to be the same as the video content, and if so why? Is there some legal reason regarding the rights , which makes it imperative that they have to be the same?? Or is it just laziness/cost inefficient to do a separate audio version . The original soundtrack 2 LP didn't match the film. What's the deal??

Oh, please stop with the "He's 74 now..."

Lots of musical artists are over 75 and still have their Sh*t together enough to put out new material and/or tour.....

Yes and lots don’t ..

Jimmy wanted a true soundtrack album, as in the songs match those in the film, the original 76 album wasn't. Simple as that.

As far as the Plant and Terry Reid stuff. Robert to me is still underrated. The heavy part of the Rain Song in SRTS is the strongest vocal I have ever seen him deliver and to me one of the greatest live vocal performances I have ever heard. 

He never gets credit for his softness and even a baritone at times -" trying to find s woman who's never never never been ...born".

Tery Reid and these other guys couldn't pull that off. Jimmy came in with the tone of the song and Robert would adjust his voice to fit. As a singer myself, very difficult to do.  Live Robert was fantastic at times, rearranging verses , using different keys ( dazed and confused ) , phrasing differently , adding lyrics and blending verses form one song into another while scatting ( Gallows Pole in TUF Earls Court).  Robert had a swagger and swing  that Jimmy needed, that Bonzo needed also. 

Robert can sing Elvis , Fats Domino and push 3 octaves higher like Chris Cornell in his prime in the next verse.  Just listen to Blue Berry Hill in LA 1970. It's frightening. Robert only gets credit for wailing and I think he realizes that criticism and I bet it bugs him a bit. He could be nasal - acoustic 1977 tour - and he could be outstanding- The Ocean SRTS. I've been listening to a lot of 1975 live stuff and Robert had to change his phrasing a lot to adjust for his ...flu?...but I think it made him a better singer overall. It was a lesson for the young lad and he had to dig deep and sing differently. Yes he fckd up and didn't nurture his vocal chords like a good musician, but that was the seventies. Only Paul Rodgers did that...but I heard he was a dick anyway!!

I hope Pagey put Robert voice and tone in a good spot on these reissues. I hated his voice in HTWWW. I actually thought it was mixed high. Jimmy mixed it and made Robert sound like Minny Mouse , with no bottom. I really hardly listen. I mean compare the Ocean in HTWWW to The Ocean in SRTS. No contest that 1973 was a better mix for Robert. 

I love Planty in SRTS. He's raw at times- Heartbreaker- yet has that swagger and Jagger like looseness which to me has been lost in current music for a long time. Long live the Frontman!!! Hard to find these days....sorry off topic at times !!!

Two vocals that I enjoy from his solo career are Big Log and Sixes and Sevens. Both have soft undertones with great feel and sudden leaps without loosing the emotion.

Rocking at Midnight is a great vocal as well.

Regarding ordering from Amazon and AutoRip and MP3 streaming options:

As regards the Blu-Ray Audio Disc for TSRTS, there is no AutoRip or streaming offered. But, for the HTWWW Blu-ray Audio disc, I WAS able to AutoRip the tracks, ie download the MP3 tracks to my smartphone because of my purchase of HTWWW Blu-ray from Amazon.

The 2018 CD for TSRTS does offer streaming, but does not offer AutoRip.

These decisions are not made by Amazon, but the label delivering the product to Amazon.

Anyone have any ideas for why TSRTS remaster is being treated differently by the label than the HTWWW remaster??

My TSRTS Blu-ray Audio disc has arrived, well worth the two week wait after release date to get it from the States at half the UK/Europe price.

I have to say I am impressed, it sounds much better than the Blu-ray film, it's 24/96 whereas the film is only 24/48, it's louder, clearer, smoother, punchier, just all around better, much easier on the old lugholes. I like that the whole thing is on one  disc uninterrupted by all the twaddle of the film, and I don't care that The Ocean is out of place. A solid 10/10 for me. The best version I have ever heard of this flawed masterpiece (we all know what those flaws are).

Amazed at all those that still are perfectly content to change CDs when you you could have the concert on -one- disc.
