Guitarist to release ditched 'Lucifer Rising' recordings
Led Zeppelin‘s Jimmy Page will release a collection of songs he recorded at his home studio in the early seventies, on March 20.
‘Lucifer Rising and Other Sound Tracks’ will be released, exclusively, through the guitarist’s website. There will be a choice of three editions, including a special run of 93 signed copies of the heavyweight vinyl record.
The title track was originally recorded to feature in Kenneth Anger’s 1972 short film Lucifer Rising. The music never made the final cut, although Page did make a cameo appearance in the finished film.
All of the compositions have been re-visited by the guitarist and remixed for their first ever release. There is also full liner notes and commentary to accompany the music.
Page describes the recordings as a “musical diary of avant-garde compositions and experiments”.
The ‘Lucifer Rising and Other Sound Tracks’ tracklisting is:
‘Damask – Ambient’
‘Lucifer Rising – Percussive Return’
‘Lucifer Rising and Other Sound Tracks’ will be available from 2pm on Tuesday March 20.
