Two CDs and a DVD devoted entirely to what is being billed as Led Zeppelin's final performance, in London in 2007. John Bonham, without whom there really is no Led Zeppelin, is long gone, but son Jason acquits himself admirably on drums. Robert Plant has lost some of the high end off his vocal range, but that's not a devastating loss. He, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones are all in fighting trim, and they run through their past with conviction. Led Zeppelin cover bands don't get much better, but this set is for hard-core collectors only. More casual Zep fans should fill out their collections with the band's original recordings from the '60s and '70s before investing in this final-bow souvenir.
