Led Zeppelin are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a special limited edition 7” release to be shared exclusively for Record Store Day.
Produced by Jimmy Page and pressed on yellow vinyl, the 7” features two previously unreleased recordings chosen by Page himself – the “Sunset Sound Mix” of ‘Rock And Roll’, and the “Olympic Studios Mix” of ‘Friends’. The recordings are so rare that the release of ‘Rock And Roll’ marks just the third time a “Sunset Sound Mix” from Zeppelin’s 1971 album, Led Zeppelin IV, has been shared publicly, following ‘When The Levee Breaks’ appearing on the original album and ‘Stairway To Heaven’ arriving on the 2014 reissue.
The limited edition vinyl will be available at independent music retailers on this year’s Record Store Day, Saturday April 21.
