Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin guitarist, is currently working on a set of remasters from the legendary 70’s rock band. According to Rolling Stone, all of the Zeppelin studio albums will be re-released one by one. This also includes Coda, which was released after the band broke up in 1980.
It’s been twenty years since the last time the Led Zeppelin collection has been remastered. In 1990 the albums were released in a four CD box set, Led Zeppelin. The new remasters will be of a much higher quality compared to that of the technology that was available twenty years ago. In reference to the lower quality recordings Page says, “You can’t hear what’s there properly.”
The new remasters will also feature unreleased studio recordings as bonus tracks. Page says, “There was an overage of material– different versions of things, different approaches to the mixes.” Many recordings that have been released through bootleg may also make appearances through the reissues. Page also wants to include rare live footage through the reissues. He notes that the previously unreleased material won’t just be filler, but “really substantial stuff.”
There’s currently no release date scheduled, but Page hope that things will start moving along starting next year after getting approval from singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones.
