Being a lifelong Zeppelin fan and fortunate enough to have seen them in the 74-75 timeframe, I think I qualify as a purist and admirer of all things Zeppelin. (past, present and future). Great White’s tribute to Zeppelin blew me away! All too often I hear tribute bands change around the tune to compensate for shortcomings or make it too much about them.
Great White did the rarity. They performed a live version of Zeppelin songs as you wish Zep did. Rather than the bloated and hard to listen to “Song Remains the Same” recording, just put this on and sit back. You won’t be disappointed. I just wish the CD contained the MTV unplugged Great White rendition of “Babe, I’m gonna leave you”, and a new recording of “That’s The Way”, then everything would be complete.
If Jack Russell reads this. Do us Great White and Zeppelin fans a favor and do another record with more Led Zeppelin tunes.
