Originally released: 2003. 2 discs. As a live band, Led Zeppelin's reputation was unparalleled during the 1970s. Traversing the globe, the band gained notoriety as a group of hard-living party animals. But onstage, their talent took over. In 2003, guitarist Jimmy Page undertook an exhaustive search of the Led Zep archives, and amongst a treasure trove of audio and visual delights, he stumbled upon recordings of two concerts from 1972. Both took place in California, one at the L.A. Forum, the other at the Long Beach Arena. The material spans the first five albums from Page, Robert Plant, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones, offering an awesome insight into the power of Zeppelin in the live arena. HOW THE WEST WAS WON includes various highlights from the shows, among them an incredible 25-minute version of "Dazed and Confused, " as well as Zep favorites such as "Black Dog, " "Moby Dick, " "Whole Lotta Love, " and many others. The band appears eager to demonstrate its musical versatility, often stretching out the material by integrating cover versions and wild improvisations into the songs. This release has been digitally remastered, offering a superior listening experience.
