Jimmy Page: New Led Zeppelin Remasters Will Include Unreleased Material

Jimmy Page has confirmed that the soon-to-be-released Led Zeppelin remasters will include previously unreleased material.

Speaking to TeamRock Radio's Nicky Horne at the Classic Rock Awards in London last night, Page said:

"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."

"It'll come out next year," he added. "When I say 'it' — each box comes out separately."

Page, when asked if the reissues will contain unreleased material, revealed: "Oh yeah. I can't tell you … It's got to be a little bit of a surprise, I can't give all the games away."

The new Led Zeppelin discs will be released in early 2014.
