Although both CD sets have some great music, HTWWW with it's great acoustic sets, and TSRTS with it's incredible versions of SIBLY, TSRTS, MMH and OTHAFA.

I give the slight edge to TSRTS.

Ah! HTWWW is better quality, but with TSRTS, you get great footage of the band performing! I wouldn't trust any footage that claims to be be from HTWWW unless it was official. Sorry, I don't do bootlegs.

TSRTS just because of DAC.

As much as i love SIBLY and D&C from TSRTS, the overall package of HTWWW gets my vote, esp. for Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker and WLL, the best versions IMO....

I personally like the "DVD" better because I love the RAH footage. Plus, the first time I watched TSRTS I had a huge WTF moment when the movie starts. I was very unaware of the fantasy sequences. I would much rather watch the band on stage than Jimmy climbing the cliff and meeting up with Obi Wan Kenobi and his lightsaber.

I inadvertently helped contribute to the confusion but this thread is about the How the West Was Won album vs. the newly remastered version of The Song Remains The Same Original Motion Picture Soundtrack not Led Zeppelin DVD vs. The Song Remains the Same movie.

Opps! Sorry.

Well then my answer is a bit different.

I love both but HTWWW edges out the TSRTS soundtrack for me because I have a special affinity for the third album. How can I not love an album that starts off with the Immigrant Song.

I do love listening to Heartbreaker on TSRTS and the segue into Whole Lotta Love.

Thanks, it's classic Cash and sums up his persona and what he stood for musically (and otherwise) to a t.

The Song Remains The Same. The added tunes were most welcome and I really really loved the version of Since I've Been Loving You included on there. How The West Was Won sort of reminds me of an official bootleg which is fine but given a choice between the two, TSRTS remastered works on all levels for me. The audio CD's that is, I don't need to ever watch the movie again in my natural lifetime.

Well since it says remastered in the post I have to go with TSRTS.

Have you heard the remastered version of it? Might want to actually listen to it before placing your vote. I know some here had an issue with the amount of flange used during "Moby Dick" along with the over all editing job.

I prefer the original tapes over everything of course; but I love how Jimmy pieced together the best of all 3 nights.
