When Jimmy Page wraps up Led Zeppelin’s reissue project at the end of this month, Page plans to invest his energies fully in his instrument—and possibly to the exclusion of having a singer.
“I’ll put my music together,” he says, “then think about whether I need to embellish it with a singer.”
Jimmy Page has released audio of “If It Keeps on Raining,” an early version of Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks.” You can check it out below. The previously unissued track will be released July 31 as part of the companion disc included with the remastered deluxe reissue of Coda.
What makes for a great 12-string guitar song as opposed to a great song that just happens to have a 12-string somewhere on it? Let's face it, if "Stairway to Heaven" had a ukulele on it, it would immediately be in the running for Greatest Ukulele Song of All Time.
Rufus Stone Limited Editions has unveiled the teaser video for Five Glorious Nights - Led Zeppelin at Earl's Court May 1975, a high-end visual documentation of the band's five-night stand at London's Earl's Court in May 1975.
Led Zeppelin has premiered the reference mix of "Hots On For Nowhere," a selection from the upcoming deluxe reissues of the band's final three album's, 1976's Presence, 1979's In Through the Out Door and 1982's Coda.
For their third and final wave of reissues, the band will release deluxe versions of 1976's Presence, 1979's In Through the Out Door and 1982's Coda (which, itself, was a collection of vintage, previously unreleased Led Zep material).
