Jimmy Page Announces New ‘Sound Tracks’ Box Set
It’s not just the Led Zeppelin catalog that Jimmy Page has been pouring over recently. On March 6, he will release Sound Tracks, a four-disc box set that brings together his scores for the movies Lucifer Rising and Death Wish II.
In addition to the music he composed that ended up on the original soundtracks, Page has included a bonus disc for both movies comprised of previously unreleased tracks. Lucifer Rising — The Second Coming has six new tracks, including an early mix of the 19-minute “Main Title.” Death Wish II — Expansion contains 10 songs, including alternate versions of “Jill’s Theme.” You can listen to excerpts from six of the songs below.
“The archive material and work included here serve as an illustration of the ongoing process at the time of these two projects,” Page said in a press release.
Sound Tracks will be released on CD and vinyl, each with a 36-page booklet. There is also a signed Deluxe box that contains both formats, an expanded book, a limited-edition screen print by Gustave Doré Eagle and an embossed black leather packaging. The Deluxe edition is limited to 109 copies and purchasers will be determined via a ballot.
Page's ongoing upgrading of the Led Zeppelin catalog continues on February 24 with the release of an expanded edition of their 1975 double-album masterpiece 'Physical Graffiti.'
