Soulful Sunday With LED ZEPPELIN And A Previously Unreleased Track Named ‘THE SEASONS’

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

Last week bombast-blues-rock icons LED ZEPPELIN celebrated
the 60th anniversary of their 5th longplayer HOUSES OF THE HOLY.

For the occasion, Zep’s guitar hero Jimmy Page comes up with a previously
unreleased track created during the sessions for Houses Of The Holy.

It’s called THE SEASONS. An instrumental arrangement
that eventually led to the album’s The Rain Song.

Page: “My original idea for the opening tracks for Houses of the Holy was that a short overture would be a rousing instrumental introduction with layered electric guitars that would segue in to The Season, later to be titled The Rain Song. Again there would be a contrasting acoustic guitar instrumental movement with melotron that could lead to the first vocal of the album and the first verse of the song. The Seasons was a memo to myself as a reminder of the sequence of the song and various ideas I’d had for it in its embryonic stage.”

Take a Seat
and Enjoy.
