A live recording of Led Zeppelin performing in concert in Paris in October 1969 is a bonus for the remastered, deluxe version of Led Zeppelin 1.

Today I am looking at how Led Zeppelin IV has been represented on the band’s live albums.
Led Zeppelin IV is one of the most famous and best selling classic rock albums. Are these famous tracks better live or in the studio?

What Are The Best Live Albums By Led Zeppelin?
What do you think is the best live album released by Led Zeppelin?
Now that Celebration Day has been released there are four Led Zeppelin live albums to choose but will it come top of the poll or will people revert to BBC Sessions, How The West Was Won or The Song Remains The Same?
I’d like to think that there are more archive recordings of Led Zeppelin concerts on the way. I was reading that Jimmy Page has been working on creating special edition packages of the studio albums. Other artists sometimes include a live album as a bonus.
I’d love to hear a Led Zeppelin live album from the Physical Graffiti tour with Kashmir, Trampled Underfoot and Houses Of The Holy. I’d also like to hear what they did with songs from Presence and especially Achilles Last Stand live.

The reunion concert received rave reviews from those who were lucky enough to attend but how will the 2007 version of Zeppelin stand up in comparison with the 1972 and 1973 versions captured on How The West Was Won and The Song Remains The Same? Continue reading
Led Zeppelin BBC Sessions includes an in concert performance of the band from April 1971 as well as live in the studio recordings and songs from gigs in 1969.
It’s often overlooked as a Led Zeppelin live album with much more attention given to:
How The West Was Won – 1972
The Song Remains The Same – 1973
The 2012 release of the reunion concert, Celebration Day has also drawn attention away from the BBC Sessions album. After all how many live Led Zeppelin albums do most fans need?
I think that’s a shame.
What we get on this album are:
- John Peel’s Top Gear – recorded from the Playhouse Theatre, London on 3 March 1969 (CD1 tracks 1,2,4)
- Chris Grant’s Tasty Pop Sundae – recorded at Aeolian Hall studio 2 on 16 June 1969 (CD1 tracks 3,5,10)
- John Peel’s Top Gear – recorded at Maida Vale studio 4 on 24 June 1969 (CD1 tracks 6 to 9)
- On Night Stand – recorded from the Playhouse Theatre on 27 June 1969 (CD1 tracks 11 – 14)
- In Concert – recorded from the Playhouse Theatre, London on 1 April 1971 (all CD2)
Led Zeppelin BBC Sessions Overall Review Rating – 23/30
How The West Was Won is a live album by Led Zeppelin from gigs in June 1972 at the LA Forum and Long Beach Arena in the USA.
The world waited for a long time for a Led Zeppelin live album and when it did appear, The Song Remains The Same received a disappointing reception although it’s been improved with the extended reissue.
How The West Was Won was released in 2003 and was immediately acclaimed as the real sound of Led Zeppelin live.

The Song Remains The Same was the first Led Zeppelin live album issued from 1973 concerts at the Madison Square Garden, New York which promoted the House Of The Holy studio album.
It was released in 1976 as the soundtrack to the concert film of the same name.
Led Zeppelin are known for their great live performances and they’ve become one of the most heavily bootlegged artists in the world.
It was re-issued in 2007 with a much better sound and with extra songs included. This makes it much more comparable with the other big Zeppelin live album, How The West Was Won.
