Jimmy Page Says Remastered Led Zeppelin Albums Will Contain Previously Unreleased Recordings

Jimmy Page says there are Led Zeppelin recordings the public has never heard before, but next year we’ll get to hear them.

In an interview tonight (November 14, 2013) with TeamRock Radio’s Nicky Horne at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour at London’s Roundhouse, Page explained that he’s remastered all of Zep’s studio recordings, and each album will be rereleased next year with a second disc of previously unheard material.

Each of the albums has been remastered but it also has a companion disc with it. Let’s take, for example, “Led Zeppelin III” — that’s remastered from analog from the original thing. I know everybody does that, but what they don’t do… I revisited all the working mixes that were done at the time. There’s different versions. Say, for example, there’s “Since I’ve Been Loving You” — there’s an incredible version of that which is totally different, it’s really raw in its approach, it’s quite dramatic, it’s cool. That’s one little item of it, but what it gives is a companion disc to “Led Zeppelin III.” It’ll come out in its own box and all the rest of it. Each disc will give a really intimate picture of the group. That’s the idea that I’ve had with it and I think it’s successful.
