Jimmy Page Discusses Classic ReIssues, But Not With Us

Jimmy Page is out there hawking his goods and with good reason.  On June 2 three of Led Zeppelins albums will get a shiny new kick off as ‘reissues’ the infamous way to cash in on die hard fans.  Of course you need every issue of everything they have done or the other fans will sneer at you!

So in hopes of amping up sales Page sat down with Rolling Stone to share his thoughts on being Zep.  It’s not a bad conversation- check it out.

“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.”

So how did were these works of art chosen?

“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.”
It’s impressive when your own work is fascinating, don’t you think?

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.”
For those of you in the Northeast Page will be the commencement speaker at the Berklee College of Music if you’d care to crash that one.  He will also receive an honorary doctorate… swanky!
