led zeppelin cos Jimmy Page remastering Led Zeppelins back catalog

Led Zeppelin may never ever reunite, but they remain content in reliving the glory days through their massive archive. Fresh off the premiere of their new concert film comes news that guitarist Jimmy Page is holed up in a West London studio “remastering every Led Zeppelin LP.” The revelation was made by Led Zeppelin manager Peter Mensch during an interview with the UK’s Sunday Times, reports Blabbermouth.

Blabbermouth also points to Page’s recent interview with Mojo magazine in which he revealed plans to release each Zeppelin album as a box set with bonus material. Artist Shepard Fairly has reportedly been tapped to re-design the artwork for these reissues.

While we wait for more details, spend the next 140 minutes watching Led Zeppelin perform live at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1970.

I suppose it was inevitable. Jimmy announcing yet another project that will keep himself busy without actually having to pick up his guitar. We have heard year after year since 2000 that Jimmy was working on “new” material. Then each year nothing happens. Last years big announcement was that once his website was up and running he’d grace our ears with new music. A quick glance at his discography reveals that it’s been since 1998 since he last penned a new track. That is a lot of time. Since then he’s guested on a couple tracks and did a live album with The Black Crowes but no new music. Meanwhile since 1998 Robert Plant has gone on to complete 4 separate solo releases, 2 live DVD’s, one compilation, numerous guest appearances and SEVEN, yes 7 live official release albums. I’d love for Jimmy to prove me wrong but history is on my side. PS – JPJ – Is Them Crooked Vultures just another smoldering side project?

Please do some surround mixes at least.

When I saw “remastering” in the headline, my first thought was “again? How many more times (pun intended) does he need to do that?” But, the (money-making) idea to do it as “box sets” with bonus material (despite his claims from the past that the vaults have been emptied) does intrigue me. Maybe he’s using the Pink Floyd’s “Immersion” approach. I’ll be interested to see what comes out.
