The Garden Tapes site updated to include new Zep DVD, live album

This news originally appeared in an edition of the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History."

For the last few years, one of the very few Web sites I ever linked to at my home page was "The Garden Tapes," one fan's comprehensive study of cuts and edits made within the Led Zeppelin film and soundtrack, The Song Remains the Same. Now, the site is expanded to include all of the band's officially released live recordings, including 1997's BBC Sessions and the two recent releases, How the West Was Won and DVD.

The DVD pages, added just Monday, reveal which recordings come from which dates and whether any overdubs, mixes or edits were made in compiling the releases. Of course, there were, and author Eddie Edwards noticed them! Visit "The Garden Tapes" at http://www.thegardentapes.co.uk/ and tell Eddie that Steve "The Lemon" sent you.
