Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 75.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

Led Zeppelin's "How the West was Won" is far superior to this release.

I have very mixed feelings on this album. On one hand, the reissue is great. More and better tracks from what the original offered, to say the least.

The problem with this album stems from the night itself. Not the recording or producing or tracklisting, but the show itself. The fact of the matter is simply the entire band was just off their game that night. They were tired, weary, and homesick, and it really reflects on their playing. From the opening beat of Rock and Roll, you can tell something is wrong. The playing isn't "incorrect" as much as it just sounds lazy, and weak. Bonham sounds like he doesn't want to be there. He's done with the tour at this point, he wants to go home. Who can blame him?

After 5 years of constant touring, it was beginning to take a serious toll on the band. Jones was rumored to quit, Robert severely damaged his voice, and it was probably around this time Jimmy Page started doing much harder drugs than weed and cigarettes. It's not that they were done as a band, but this was the beginning of the end. They had one real album left in them, but they were becoming undone more and more by the day.

E' vero che, specialmente per me che non sopporto le canzoni lunghe, la versione di ventisette ( ! ) minuti di "Dazed and confused" non è esattamente la canzone ideale da mandare in heavy rotation; è vero ( ancora di più ) che dodici minuti di "Moby Dick", quasi interamente caratterizzati dall'assolo di batteria, sono oggettivamente pesanti; è vero anche che per disomogeneità di repertorio e, qua e là, pesantezza di esecuzione, questo non è proprio tra i tre/quattro migliori live di sempre. A me, però, di tutto questo frega niente…

I have the original vinyl, still in near mint condition. Moby Dick is unquestionably the best drum solo ever, particularly when you realise that John Bonhams drum kit wasn't that extensive

A testament to why Zep was considered sloppy live. Poor sound quality as well. A band this great should have had a far better album as a definitive record of their live act.

I have the 2007 version and i think it is a great live album. I love the version of Rain Song,Stairway To Heaven and No Quarter. Possible Dazed and Confused is bit to long.

God damn did they come on stage drunk. The first few tracks (and subsequent Page solo sections) are pretty rough. Somehow they smooth themselves out and make a classic live record. It is Zeppelin after all. Bonham's solo on Moby Dick is incredible.

Not Led Zeppelin's greatest moment on the stage, but it's better than some critics claim. It's probably just weighed down by the film that it's soundtrack too. The album feels better since the extended version was released. Good, but, how the west was won, would be better.

This release is a testament to what a great "live" band they were. I only had one chance to see on stage. It was one of the most exciting concerts I have ever seen. The album while great doesn't begin to capture the electricity they generated. Excellent!
