New Led Zeppelin remasters to include ‘companion disc’

Each of the band’s albums will be remastered and repackaged

Jimmy Page has given fans more details about what they can expect with the upcoming Led Zeppelin remastered box sets. Page spoke about the project backstage at the Classic Rock Awards Thursday (Nov 14th) night in London where the band won Film Of The Year Award for Celebration Day. Page discussed what will be included in the new boxed set versions of each of his band’s iconic catalog titles.

Page confirms that each remastered album will come with a companion bonus disc that will feature unreleased Zeppelin tracks, and will include different versions of each song. Every one of the companion discs will be released in “their own little box” with each album boxed set being sold separately.

Page revisited the “working mixes that were done at the time” and included different versions of each song. Page says there’s a “totally different” version of their classic “Since I’ve Been Loving You” which is “raw in its approach” and “dramatic” that will be included on the companion disc for Led Zeppelin III.

Page said “all the sonic side is done” for the massive project which Page is expecting to release after the new year. However, no release date, album timeline or other details were given.

Before wrapping the interview, Page stated, “There’s gotta be a little bit of a surprise, I can’t give all the games away!”
