Unreleased Led Zeppelin music discovered
Robert Plant has discovered some previously unreleased Led Zeppelin music, some of which features the band's bassist John Paul Jones on vocals.
Speaking to BBC 6Music, Plant said to Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie that he listened to the material with Jimmy Page and it is likely that the music will feature on the remastered releases of Led Zeppelin's back catalogue, which he is currently working on.
He said: "I found some quarter-inch spools recently. I had a meeting with Jimmy and we baked 'em up and listened to 'em. And there's some very, very interesting bits and pieces that probably will turn up on these things." Speaking about John Paul Jones' response to the material which features him on vocals, he joked that Jones is trying to bribe him not to release the songs. "So far, he's going to give me two cars and a greenhouse not to get 'em on the album," he said.
