The Song Remains The Same instrumental! It's really interesting to hear all these repeative lead parts that were significantly shortened and they have way more impact on the original album version. Jimmy's playing is very soft on the new lead parts and entire song has more breath if you like this. It's almost as though he went through the song removed all the air and had Plant add lyrics in those parts to finish the song. All in all, this alternate mix shows Page's guitar army at his best, even if instrumental have no such impact as original album mix. Over The Hills And Far Away has muddy sound to start. Sounds like a couple of gens removed from the master I believe. Clears up a bit as the other guitars come in. Still sounds like it is a gen or two removed from the master on the main solo. The acoustic cutting back in, pasted at the end, is a bit jarring. Pagey could mixed it up more precisely but I guess it's just a reference take and definitely worth to listen. The Crunge! Bonzo's drums sound pretty punchy. Bass is also much exposed here, with much more ambient I hear in the mix. What does it mean by "keys up" though? Sounds like the original version. Again, it sounds a bit like it's a gen removed. A bit of difference in the keyboard towards the end is present.
