Listen to clips from Jimmy Page’s new ‘Sound Tracks’ box set

Jimmy Page - Sound Tracks

Led Zeppelin guitar legend Jimmy Page has revealed details of his new box set that brings together music he composed for films Lucifer Rising and Death Wish II, along with other archive material.

The limited edition Sound Tracks box will be released on the 6th of March and is available to pre-order now.

Three versions of the set are available via Page’s official website including CD and Vinyl editions, each featuring four discs, or a £400 limited Deluxe Edition signed by Page himself.

Speaking to Uncut magazine last year, Page said: “There’s something coming out which I’m really excited about. It’s the mix that I did [of Lucifer Rising] but I’m leaving the guitar on it, it’s got a 12 string that is the guide guitar showing me where I’m going to do the overdub. This isn’t what goes to [director] Kenneth Anger, because I didn’t want hardly any guitar at all. The mix is really really superb, I’m really proud of it. And I’ve got some experimental music that was done with bow and Theremin which is like, hang on to your seats, because it really, really is something else, it’s disturbing. I’ve got some home stuff that I did at the same studio or equipment that I did Lucifer Rising on, with sort of that whole guitar textures and overdubs. I think people want to hear that.”

You can listen to a selection of clips from Sound Tracks via the SoundCloud stream below:
