Classic rock legend Jimmy Page has confirmed that the upcoming Led Zeppelin album remasters, which will be released next year, will include previously unreleased material. Page attended the Classic Rock Awards to pick up the “Film of the Year” award for “Celebration Day” and shared the news.
Jimmy Page told TeamRock Radio at the Classic Rock Awards in London: “Each of the albums has been remastered but it also has a companion disc with it. Let’s take, for example, Led Zeppelin III â€” 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.”
He continued: “There’s different versions. Say, for example, there’s ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’ â€” 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.”
