Listen to Led Zeppelin’s ‘Lost’ Cut, ‘Sunshine Woman’
The Classic Rock Gods are smiling on fans with a ‘new’ song.
Classic rock fans are in for a treat next month with the release of Led Zeppelin’s “The Complete BBC Sessions,” a new collection of some of the band’s greatest hits and best recorded versions of many songs. In addition to new versions of hits like “Communication Breakdown” and “Dazed and Confused,” the compilation has something special for die-hard fans, a previously unreleased track called “Sunshine Woman.” In anticipation of the upcoming release, the band has shared this track with the world.
The Zeppelin fan community has been aware of the track for years, but after the original recording of the BBC special was accidentally destroyed, the song was thought to be lost. Luckily someone made a private recording for themselves, and some 47 years after the song was performed on television, the band has decided to release a version they once thought was unobtainable.
The full collection is due to be released September 16th, having been remastered under the supervision of Jimmy Page. It will be available in multiple versions, including a range of CDs, vinyl, and a 44-page book about the BBC sessions.
