(hennemusic) Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page took part in a listening event and interview streamed live from London's Olympic Studios on Wednesday as the band prepares to release "The Complete BBC Sessions" on September 16.

The event began with 45 minutes of audio presenting a series of select tunes from the set which features live recordings from Led Zeppelin's appearances on BBC Radio between 1969 and 1971.

Page then sat down with BBC DJ Johnnie Walker to discuss the project, including its place in the Led Zeppelin catalogue. "It's a historical document," explains Page. "It's sort of Led Zeppelin's promotion. It's them going full-throttle, they're taking no prisoners when they're going in on these sessions. And yet, it's still employing all of the dynamics and the improvisation.

"An important document because there isn't anywhere else in the world where there is something like the BBC, so it's really great that they gave us a facility, and repeat facility to be coming back and that there's a testament to it. I know some people really, really like these versions, they think they're really great and I think they're pretty cool."

"It's a great time capsule," he adds. "It's really cool - you hear the band progressing over, not even a handful of years, just from 1969 to 1971. My goodness, it's only two years and yet it's expanding and expanding. It's cool."

The launch event wrapped up with the world premiere of a new video for a BBC Sessions recording of the 1969 classic, "What Is And What Should Never Be." Watch the video here.
