eckoes presents his first fanedit, In For a Quick Garden
This is a fanedit of The Led Zeppelin concert film "The Song Remains The Same". This edit shows one complete uninterrupted concert out of all official footage available.
"Despite some great live music captured in the movie, the concert is constantly interrupted by something either fairly uninteresting (dull documentary footage that seems staged) or seriously drowned in vanity (the band home movies, or fantasy sequences).
This edit now shows one complete uninterrupted concert out of all official footage available.
The official soundtrack LP is a must-have live album, and I always wondered how the movie would look like if it followed the LP more closely.
Previous attempts made by others are available, but they felt a bit crude so I decided to try doing the assembly myself.
Be aware that this movie is infamous for having been badly edited at the time. Especially regarding the sound/visual synchro.
When preparing the restored DVD/Blu-Ray in 2007, Jimmy Page was not allowed to modify any footage of the film due to copyrights issues, but he did modify the soundtrack heavily to make it more in sync with the visuals.
While being a huge improvement, many out-of-sync moment remains."
