Led Zeppelin Releases LOST Track ‘Sunshine Woman’

 

$ (1)

Led Zeppelin is planning a rerelease of their 1997 “BBC Sessions” collection that will feature a third disc of previously unreleased material, including new versions of “Communication Breakdown,” “You Shook Me,” and “Dazed and Confused.” On Friday, The Wall Street Journal premiered one song off the collection that has never before seen a proper release, the band’s “Sunshine Woman.”

Thought to have never been recorded in a studio, the song was recorded live in London on March 16, 1969 and later broadcast on the BBC network. The original tapes of the recording were lost, but a private recording of the broadcast was found in the late ’90s. Zeppelin diehards have traded various versions of the recording over the years, but this is the first time it’s ever been properly released.

Jimmy Page apparently remastered the tapes for the new version of the collection, but seems to have been limited by the quality of the source material for “Sunshine Woman.” Which is to say, it’s pretty lo-fi. Robert Plant plays harmonica. There’s some piano. All things considered, it’s fine. I might not be the best judge, though. I’m not really into jazz.

Listen to “Sunshine Woman,” below.
