Led Zeppelin have emptied out their vaults over the last few years as a part of an expansive archival campaign, which has included the reissuing of the band’s nine albums and B-sides. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame band will re-release their popular BBC Sessions in a new box set.
The collection even features a lost 1969 session which includes the only performance of a song named, “Sunshine Woman.” Guitarist Jimmy Page spoke to Mojo and said the song “was basically made up on the spot. It was pretty brave, bearing in mind the circumstances. We played it as if we were in rehearsals, starting it around the riff and then working it out. It shows that we were evolving pretty quickly.”
The Complete BBC Sessions makes it the first time “Sunshine Woman” has been commercially released and, according to the Guardian, is “likely the best recording you will ever find of what might be the last previously unheard complete Zeppelin song to get an official release.”
Listen to “Sunshine Woman” below via Draven Crichton, and The Complete BBC Sessions will be in stores next month.
