Hmmm. Is it coincidence that some very early (previously unreleased) recordings of the Mighty LED ZEPPELIN have started to appear on-line as the 50th Anniversary of the band approaches? Don't know, but the music is definitely worth a listen. Now, JIMMY PAGE has recently mentioned that there will be "previously unheard Led Zeppelin" tracks issued for Zep's upcoming 50th Anniversary, and since Page has been the curator of all things Zeppelin (resissues, etc.) he would be in a position to know... Whether or not the music heard here is what he is referring to is unknown, but it is a fascinating and cool find. What you'll hear is basically very raw, unproduced demos and studio jamming by the band (with Bad Co's Mick Ralphs on 1 song!), that also gives the listener a peek at Zep's creative process early on, and you'll hear parts played that hint at songs they would eventually record/release, i.e. 'The Lemon Song' and 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You.' Additionally, there are a number of 'live' recordings consisting of mainly early Rock & Roll songs like 'C'Mon Everybody,' 'Long Tall Sally,' 'Train Kept Rollin', and even Ray Charles' 'Georgia On My Mind!' Keep in mind that these tracks are not complete, produced, and 'polished' songs, BUT...they are from Led Zeppelin, and will no doubt whet the appetite of Zeppelin fans for more! Rock On!
