Led Zeppelin

Dazed & Confused DVD

Review by Gary Hill

This documentary is pretty captivating. It's not a thing of perfection, but I really enjoyed it. I mean, I knew a lot of the stuff here, but I am a pretty big Zeppelin fan and have read a lot about them. Even then, there were things here that I had either forgotten or never knew.

I like the collection of video clips and other rarities. The music that links it all together seems to be "covers" of some Zep music, at least mostly. I get it. It's probably less expensive so get covers than it is the actual music, and it still works pretty well. Besides, if you came here for the music, you miss the point of the documentary.

I like the way the story is told. It flows nicely and is compelling. Of course, it's not exhaustive. Even with a band like Zeppelin that have a relatively short and finite history, you can only fit so much into a movie length documentary. I think they did an admirable job.
