Jimmy Page has claimed that a series of unreleased Led Zeppelin tracks could emerge next year.
Led Zeppelin's back catalogue been devoured, poured over and dissected like few other rock documents. One of the foundation stones for heavy metal, hardcore fans can no doubt boast as to having heard everything which bears the Led Zeppelin name.
Yet it seems that the vaults haven't been picked clean entirely. An extensive re-issue project has been confirmed for 2014, with each of the band's studio albums to be given a spring clean. In the process of doing this, a number of unreleased Led Zeppelin tracks have been discovered.
Robert Plant spoke to 6Music at the weekend, explaining: "there’s some very, very interesting bits and pieces that probably will turn up (soon). Hidden gems – now that should be the name of (our) band, really."
It seems that John Paul Jones isn't entirely keen for the material to be given an official release. The multi-instrumentalist takes lead vocals on a number of recordings, and Robert Plant joked that he is mortified by the recordings. According to the frontman, the bass player has offered "two cars and a greenhouse (to leave) them (off) the album."
