Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won on DVD Audio
Warner Music Vision have announced the UK DVD-Audio release of Led Zeppelin's spectacular live album How The West Was Won for 20th October 2003. Already a phenomenal success as a CD release, How The West Was Won provided fans of the band with a highly anticipated compilation of hit tracks from two live shows originally recorded back in 1972.
As well as showcasing outstanding Advanced Resolution Multi-Channel Surround Sound, this 2-disc DVD-Audio album offers the original 18 tracks in Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo. Containing two and a half hours of live rock, How The West Was Won contains performances recorded during two concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25th and June 27th 1972 - respectively. These recordings were produced by Jimmy Page as were all of the classic Led Zeppelin albums.
Stunning renditions of Stairway To Heaven, Immigrant Song and Going To California appear on Disc 1 of this 2-Disc album, whilst a 23-minute medley based around Whole Lotta Love and a breathtaking 19 minute performance of Moby Dick feature on Disc 2.
Exclusive colour photos of the group performing live on stage introduce each track. There are also options to choose between 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo playback, and to either explore the playlist or to simply enjoy the show. However, it is not necessary to view the menus on the screen to get to the music, as the disc will function just like a standard CD when played in any DVD player.
