Please note, if the song was available for purchase, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

When Led Zeppelin did their reunion concert in London in 2007, they played a version of Kashmir I really like - more than the original. I've only seen it on YouTube, and would love to get it onto my iPod.

The YouTube link:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

my personal method is kinda long winded but works as such,

download the video, open in quicktime pro, hit ctrl + J ( i think or it might be I )

click on the song part of the box, click and save that as a .wav file, then switch it over to MP3, save to wherever, and import to iTunes ;)

Easy Youtube Video Downloader plugin for Firefox. It puts a download link directly on the page of the Youtube video and you can download to mp4, even HD mp4. Then you can use a simple extractor to extract the video. If its AAC, just add it to iTunes. If not, you can use a number of free converters to convert the audio. If you want the video, just add it to iTunes.
