How the West Was Won is a live triple album by the English rock group Led Zeppelin, released by Atlantic Records on compact disc on 27 May 2003, and DVD-Audio on 7 October 2003. The recordings are taken from two 1972 performances in California: . Forum (25 June 1972) and Long Beach Arena (27 June 1972). Guitarist Jimmy Page considers Led Zeppelin at this point to have been at their artistic peak, as is mentioned in the album's liner notes and in an interview he gave to The Times newspaper in 2010.

Dazed and Confused (How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 12. What Is And What Should Never Be (How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 13. Dancing Days (How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 14. Moby Dick (How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 15. Whole Lotta Love (How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 16. Rock And Roll - Live (from How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 17. The Ocean (from How The West Was Won) Lyrics. 18. Bring It On Home (How The West Was Won) Lyrics. About How The West Was Won.

In the album’s booklet, Page notes that Led Zeppelin were at their peak during this era. And he may be right.

HOW THE WEST WAS WON highlights the best performances from Led Zeppelin’s legendary concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972. Melded together and sequenced to replicate a single concert from beginning to end, the three-CD collection captures the band at the height of its formidable powers.

Led Zeppelin, authors of the radio-history and so many hallowed riffs and sexual double-entendres involving fruit, are so played-out at this point that they've managed to become taken for granted. Jimmy Page found the two 1972 Los Angeles shows featured on the triple disc How the West Was Won while poring over his archives for what was to be a straight DVD release. And just like that, new magic is cast, new legends are born. One of the interesting things about Zep (and if you believe the rockists, this holds true for any truly "great" band) is that they made their most definitive statements in concert.

Guitarist Jimmy Page considers Led Zeppelin at this point to have been at their artistic peak, as is mentioned in the album's liner notes In an interview he gave to The Times newspaper in 2010, when asked which performances from Led Zeppelin's career stand out to him now, he made reference to these gigs: I think what we did on How the West was Won – that 1972 gig – is pretty much a testament of how good it was It would have been nice to have had a little more visual recordings, but there you go That’s the conundrum of Led Zeppelin!1.

Tracklist: 1. LA Drone, 2. Immigrant Song, 3. Heartbreaker, 4. Black Dog, 5. Over The Hills And Far Away, 6. Since I’ve Been Loving You, 7. Stairway To Heaven, 8. Going To California, 9. That’s The Way, 10. Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp, 11. Dazed And Confused, 12. Walter’s Walk, 13. The Crunge, 14. What Is And What Should Never Be, 15. Dancing Days, 16. Moby Dick, 17. Whole Lotta Love, 18. Boogie Chillun, 19. Let’s Have A Party, 20. Hello Marylou, 21. Going Down Slow, 22. Rock And Roll, 23. The Ocean, 24. Bring It On Home, 25. Bring It On Back.

There can’t be any doubt that Led Zeppelin were the hottest rock group on the planet when they pummelled the Forum in Los Angeles on June 25, 1972 and destroyed Long Beach Arena two days later. Jimmy Page considered the band were at the height of their powers at the time, following the monumental 1V. It wasn’t a question of how the West was won – America had already fallen – more why they didn’t prove it at the time by releasing a live album.

Here is a link to the vinyl reviews review of this specific pressing: https://vinylreviews.com/album/how-the-west-was-won/
Agrainel
Outstanding job remastering and pressing for this box. Bonham's drum solo on Moby Dick is dynamically spectacular!
Mr_Mole
Another mastering and cutting job by John Davis. 2014 remastered Zeppelin quality should be expected
Perongafa
This was most likely mastered from the digital high rez scans of some tapes. These are live concert recordings though I think so dont buy it if you want studio recorded songs.
Bludsong
Do you know/know how to find out if this was mastered from original tapes? Or a digital scan?
