The wheels are spinning in the music industry this week, as a tribute concert has been announced to celebrate the life and work of legendary music producer and founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, who passed away last December. Movie fans will most likely remember Ertegun as the man kickstarting the career of one Ray Charles in the movie “Ray,” but of course his real life’s work was much more profound and encompassing than only that.
The tribute concert will be headlined by none other than equally legendary British rockers, Led Zeppelin in a once-in-a-lifetime reunion. To add to the event, Warner Home Video has just announced that it will release brand new home video editions of Led Zeppelin’s concert film, The Song Remains The Same. This release will for the first time feature all 14 songs from the original concert, complemented by a remixed and remastered 5.1 channel surround mix and more than 40 minutes of bonus materials.
Look for never-before-released performance footage of “Over The Hills And Far Away” and “Celebration Day”; plus performances of “Misty Mountain Hop” and “The Ocean”; a rare 1976 BBC interview with Robert Plant and Peter Grant; vintage TV footage from the Drake Hotel robbery during the New York concert stand; and a Cameron Crowe radio show.
“The Song Remains The Same” will be available on DVD for $19.97 and in high definition on HD-DVD and Blu-Ray Disc for $28.99. Warner will also offer a Limited Collector’s Edition which includes a collectible vintage T-shirt with original album artwork design, the soundtrack CD, lobby cards, reproductions of original premiere invites, tour schedule, and more.
