For many serious music fans, Led Zeppelin was simply the greatest rock band ever. The group formed in 1968, and as early as 1969, the band started discussing filming a live performance for a projected movie documentary. Their first attempt at filming was in early 1970, but the lighting was judged as mediocre and the film was shelved. It wasn't until over three years later that a second attempt was made, during the group's three concert performances at Madison Square Garden. The resulting film, called "The Song Remains the Same", in addition to the three concerts, would feature clips from backstage and the events involving the band surrounding those three concerts..

Although the film performed well in the box office when it was finally released in 1976, it was reviewed negatively by critics for its perceived amateurish production and self-indulgent content (including some fantasy sequences, which particularly came in for some harsh criticism). For all its faults, though, many today view the film as an interesting historical document that captured the band at a particular point in time when its popularity was at its peak, and as an accurate representation of the excesses of the music and show-business industries in the 1970s. Amongst fans, the film has retained is popularity, as until the release of Led Zeppelin DVD in 2003, it was the only official live visual document that was accessible to followers of the band.

When John Bonham passed in 1980, the other members of Led Zeppelin could not imagine going on without hurting the integrity of their future music, and the band disbanded. For that reason, complete band signed items in any format are incredibly scarce, and albums signed by all four are nearly non-existent and considered the pinnacle in Zeppelin items.

Offered here is possibly the finest album to surface signed by all four members of the legendary rock n' roll band. This pressing of the 1976 soundtrack release for "The Song Remains the Same" bears seldom seen superb bold ballpoint autographs by the band during their prime, "Jimmy Page," "John Bonham," "Robert Plant," & "John Paul Jones." After extensive research, we have concluded that this is the first complete band signed version of this particular album EVER to surface on the market! It is very possible that this is the only to exist, as it was their last release before Bonham's death. In exceedingly good condition with minor surface impressions and very light handling wear to the edges - incredibly well-preserved with well-placed and beautifully executed autographs that stand as strong today as the day they were scrawled. This is a true centerpiece for any Zeppelin fan, as another item like this may never turn up again. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from noted music authentication company Tracks UK.

This item has also been reviewed by Beckett Authentication Services (BAS) and is guaranteed to pass their authentication. Full certification for this item can be acquired for an additional fee.
