Is The Song Remains the Same in your Naples real estate? If not, it should be, as it is an awe-inspiring treasure of live performances. The DVD captures three consecutive nights of Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden in New York. The pioneers of stadium rock were trekking through their Houses of the Holy Tour in the summer of 1973, but the film wasn’t released onto the big screen until 1976. A video was put onto the market in 1990 and the DVD followed in 1999.

Folks in homes for sale in Naples will appreciate the timeless songs seen and heard in this swirl of sound. For example, the blues-based “Rock and Roll,” was elevated to the opening number of all the mighty Zeppelin’s shows from 1972 to 1975. Then there’s the celebratory delivery and fast tempo “Black Dog,” the melodic “No Quarter,” “Whole Lotta Love,” and the epic “Dazed and Confused.”

Most notable on the DVD, John “Bonzo” Bonham’s twelve-and-a-half-minute version of “Moby Dick” will blow you away. Watch the man play with his hands and you will know why Bonzo is the greatest drummer to ever tour the globe. First featured on the single greatest record ever, 1969’s Led Zeppelin II, the “Moby Dick” drum solo sounds as if he’s playing with two pairs of hands and four sticks. The song got its name from John’s son, Jason, asking him to play “The Lemon Song.” When asked why, the boy replied, “It’s big like Moby.” Jason is seen in The Song Remains the Same, fiddling around behind his daddy’s instrument. Onstage, Bonham would often throw his drumsticks into the audience during the number, and continue the solo with his hands. Upon occasion, blood was drawn as a direct result of breaking his sticks with his ferocious playing.

The Song Remains the Same entails hallucinatory fantasy sequences meant to illustrate their individual personalities. Jimmy Page is seen sitting by a lake next to his 18th-century manor in Sussex. He is seen climbing up the face of a snow-capped mountain. The scene is meant to display Page fighting his way to the top of the world, only to be greeted by The Hermit recognized from the untitled fourth album.

Robert Plant was seen relaxing on his Jennings farm, with his wife and children. He is depicted as a knight rescuing a fair maiden. The woman symbolizes the singer’s ideal vision; his personal search for the Holy Grail. He is fortunate enough not to encounter more than a flesh wound on his romantic journey. John Paul Jones is shown at home with his wife, reading Jack and the Beanstalk to his two daughters. He then portrays a masked gentleman known as “The Scarecrow,” who is a normal family man by day, but embarks on adventurous travels by night with his other mates from Led Zeppelin. Finally, Bonzo is seen spending quality time with his family on their country estate, The Old Hyde Farm in Worcestershire.
