Although fans were hoping to get their hands on all of the new LED ZEPPELIN remasters this year, the wait for the majority of the band’s catalogue continues. According to The Pulse Of Radio, Jimmy Page posted an update on his officiate web site, JimmyPage.com, stating, “The first of the LED ZEPPELIN reissues — comprising of ‘Led Zeppelin I’, ‘Led Zeppelin II’ and ‘Led Zeppelin III’ — will be released this year. I’ve also been working on some of my own material from the archives that will be unleashed in 2014.”
The wait for “Led Zeppelin IV”, “Houses Of The Holy”, “Physical Graffiti”, “The Song Remains The Same”, “In Through The Out Door” and “Coda” will likely stretch into 2015.
Page told The Pulse Of Radio that after all the success LED ZEPPELIN had, the real reward has been that the music has lasted so long. “The most satisfying, the most rewarding part of it, is having been part of music like that, which has stood up to the test of time,” he said. “Every musician hopes that their music will hold up. And it’s wonderful.”
Page, who produced all of LED ZEPPELIN‘s live and studio albums, has served as the band’s chief archivist and personally oversaw the remastering of the band’s catalogue back in the nearly ’90s.
November 2012 saw the release of LED ZEPPELIN‘s live collection, “Celebration Day”, which was recorded and filmed at ZEPPELIN‘s December 10, 2007 reunion show at London’s O2 Arena. The concert film was released on CD, DVD, Blu-ray disc through Swan Song/Atlantic Records.
LED ZEPPELIN is up for two Grammy awards — “Best Rock Performance” for “Kashmir (Live)” from “Celebration Day”, and the album itself, “Celebration Day”, in the “Best Rock Album” category.
