According to Peter Mensch, Jimmy Page’s manager, the Led Zeppelin guitarist is apparently hard at work at remastering the band’s entire catalog. According to Blabbermouth, tentative plans are to release the albums next year sometime, potentially with alternate takes/unreleased mixes as well.
More details from Blabbermouth:
Page recently told Mojo magazine that there are plans to release each ZEPPELIN studio album as a box set with additional material from each LP. In addition, it was revealed in an article in The Australian that artist Shepard Fairey has been tapped to re-design the artwork for the upcoming reissues.
UPDATE – Page has revealed a bit more of his plans, as he told NME:
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,” Page said. “There will be one box set per album with extra music that will surface.
Additionally, Led Zeppelin will apparently be honored and perform at the Kennedy Center Honors on December 26 (9 PM EST and broadcast on CBS), so don’t miss out on that either.
Stay tuned for any more (and hopefully concrete) details about these remasters and anything else that happens regarding Zeppelin.
