Jimmy Page Remastering Led Zeppelin Catalog
Jimmy Page is currently remastering Led Zeppelin’s entire catalog for a series of box set releases. The legendary guitarist recently told Mojo that every one of the band’s albums would be re-released, along with alternate versions of their classic songs, starting in 2013.
Page told Mojo, “There are a number of Led Zeppelin projects that will come out next year because there are different versions of tracks that we have that can be added to the album so there will be box sets of material that will come out, starting next year …There will be one box set per album with extra music that will surface.”
The news comes on the heels of the premiere of Led Zeppelin’s concert film, Celebration Day, which documents the band’s 2007 reunion/tribute concert at the O2 Arena in London .The film will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on November 19, with audio recordings also being released on CD and download. The surviving members of the band, along with John Bonham’s son, Jason, recently held press conferences in New York and London in which they stonewalled most questions about the band’s future.
