Led Zeppelin: Song Remains The Same soundtrack returns to US charts

Led Zeppelin’s soundtrack to the concert film, “The Song Remains The Same”, has returned to the US charts.

According to Billboard, the package re-enters the Billboard 200 at No. 127; available in multiple editions, all versions of the album – original and reissues – are blended together for charting purposes.

Featuring material recorded during the group’s 1973 performances at New York's Madison Square Garden and first released in 1976, the reissue presents newly-remastered audio supervised by Jimmy Page.

Upon its original release, the soundtrack was a No. 1 album in the band’s native UK, a No. 2 effort on the US Billboard 200, and Top 10 in several countries.

“The Song Remains The Same” reissue officially launched Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary celebrations as it arrived 50 years to the date of the band’s first live show – as The New Yardbirds – in Gladsaxe, Denmark in 1968.

On October 9, the iconic hard rock group will publish “Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin”, the first and only official illustrated book to be produced in collaboration with the members of the band.
