Thanks Ben. I'll pick it up. Even the recent "reunion" television show was quite good. Can't get enough Zep!

Ok the double DVD set is simply called LED ZEPPELIN DVD.
The sound is in PCM stereo(which is all I use and is incredible)Dolby 5.1 and DTS-I have a friend who has heard it in 5 channel and raved about it.
I'm not going to give the full track listing that can be found elsewhere on the web (www.ledzeppelin.com) however there's nice film menus,lot's of little extra clips including promo's and interviews.
However the main events are the Royal Albert Hall 1970-various TV European TV clips-1969,outtakes from TSRTS,Earls Court 1975 and Knebworth '79.
It's over 5 hours of stuff and it is blinding, easily I would say the best live footage of any band I've seen-the power of the early performances is incredible and you can see how the band matured and added more subtle touches as they progressed.
The triple live CD (How The West Was Won) is not a hybrid and I have no idea if it will make vinyl-check their official web site.
Tracklisting for that is also available on any CD purchasing site.
It contains 18 tracks.
Here are the tracks. I picked one up today and it sounds great.

DVD 2 tracklisting: 1) Immigrant Song 2) Black Dog 3) Misty Mountain Hop 4) Since I've Been Loving You 5) The Ocean 6) Going To California 7) That's The Way 8) Bron-Y-Aur Stomp 9) In My Time Of Dying 10) Trampled Underfoot 11) Stairway To Heaven 12) Rock And Roll 13) Nobody's Fault But Mine 14) Sick Again 15) Achilles Last Stand 16) In The Evening 17) Kashmir 18) Whole Lotta Love

Thanks for heads up on the Led Zep DVD release. Not that I want to lay a whole lotta "been there done that" hot air on my fellow 'gonsters, but in the travels of my wayward youth, I did manage to make it to both of their Kenbworth shows. They never sounded better, and they played a bunch of songs that hadn't been performed on their 77 US tour. I am surprised that material form the 75 Earl's Court shows was included. By legend and reputation, (and by Robert Plant's own admission), the Earl's Court gig was definitely not up to snuff.
Once I get my hands on a copyof the DVD, I'll share a quickie review.
Tvad-my understanding is no although sometimes the audio and film were sourced differently from the same performance.
The version of Immigrant Song on the second disc from Australia is the only performance were seperate film (Ausralia) and music (America) have been spliced from completely different sources which would explain the jerky frame effect used as obviously it would be impossible to match them.
Of course it wouldn't be hard to imagine the odd overdub to smooth the thing out.
I think what maybe disproves this to a large extent is how selective they've been on editing the actual gigs.
Earl's Court and Knebworth filming must amount to at least 6 to 7 hours of material-on the disc itself it's edited down to (guessing now) about 2.5 hours.
I think there were probably ropey performances in there which simply didn't make the disc.................
