Led Zeppelin to release BBC Sessions compilation

A Led Zeppelin session for the BBC from 1969 that was believed to have been lost when archives were erased has been recovered from a recording made by a fan.

The Led Zeppelin set went out on the BBC World Service as part of Alexis Korner’s Rhythm and Blues programme and was tape recorded from an AM radio in Europe. It includes the band’s only known recording of the track Sunshine jimmy page & robert plantWoman and two other unreleased tracks I Can’t Quit You Baby and What Is And What Should Never Be.

The Led Zeppelin session recording has been restored with help from guitarist Jimmy Page for inclusion on a new compilation. The Complete BBC Sessions, which will be released in September, is a remastered update of a 1997 collection of tracks recorded for the BBC between 1969 and 1971. Arguably it includes eight previously unreleased recordings, including the first broadcast of Stairway To Heaven ( from the BBC Paris Cinema in London on 1 April 1971 ) but in reality, it is only three tracks that are technically unreleased.

As much as I’m a Led Zeppelin fan, I cannot help feeling that despite the inclusion of three previously unreleased tracks, the new 3 CD or 5 vinyl LP “deluxe edition” box set will cost a lot of money for predominantly old rope. Much better to have released them as a three track EP in a vinyl single or CD single format. However no doubt dedicated, purist Led Zeppelin fans will want to add this latest release to their collection.
