Jimmy Pages Says He Left No Stone Unturned for Led Zeppelin Reissues

(hennemusic) As Led Zeppelin gear up for the June 2 (June 3 in North America) release of expanded reissues of their first three albums, guitarist/producer Jimmy Page is sharing his thoughts on the project in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

"I left no stone unturned," explains Page. "I can't have anyone else do it because I want it done properly. I dread to think how it could have been thrown together if I wasn't around."

The guitarist spent two-and-a-half years combing through the vaults, listening to hundreds of quarter-inch tapes before choosing the best material for the series. "I see them as companion discs," says Page. "They comprise work done around the exact time of each album. They are fascinating to hear and they hold up alongside the original albums."

Page was careful to not unearth too many takes that have surfaced on bootlegs. "I was pretty diligent with my detection work," he says. "I didn't want to put together a compilation where ninety percent of it had been bootlegged. I asked a guy that runs one of the fanzines if he's heard any of this material before. He told me he hadn't. That was a really good feeling." more on this story
