 DVD-Audio Review: Led Zeppelin - ‘How The West Was Won’
Led Zeppelin - ‘How The West Was Won’
However, we should make one important distinction between the aforementioned and ‘How The West Was Won’, namely that this is a live recording of Led Zeppelin rather than a studio album, which means individual elements usually aren’t available to the re-mixing team and that fidelity often suffers.
Andy has already mentioned that the recordings show their age, which applies equally to the dedicated stereo track (which offers nothing over the CD counterpart) as it does to the surround alternative, but what most listeners, myself included, are likely to be somewhat disappointed by is the nature of the multi-channel presentation.

 Hamas Won Power In West Bank Vote (washingtonpost.com)
OBEIDIYEH, West Bank -- In this nondescript town of 10,000 people four miles southeast of Jerusalem, a slate of candidates called the Reform Bloc campaigned hard against corruption in the governing Palestinian Authority in last month's municipal elections, the first for Palestinians in nearly three decades.
When negotiations are finished on the formation of coalitions, they could end up controlling or sharing control of governments in at least nine and as many as 13 municipal governments.
The outcome, according to political analysts, politicians and voters, is a harbinger of the kind of campaigns that can be expected among a people who feel disenfranchised by their leaders, frustrated by years of corruption and worn down by conflict with Israel.
