Led Zeppelin has released what is said to be the final track from their vault of unreleased work. Titled “Sunshine Woman,” the bluesy three-minute piece is one of eight other unreleased tracks (below) that will be featured in Led Zeppelin’s September release of The Complete BBC Sessions, which expands upon the famous BBC Sessions from 1997.
Apparently, the tapes that were used to record the original “Sunshine Woman” sessions were lost, putting the track on the back burner for over forty years. When asked about the song, guitarist Jimmy Page said that the track “was basically made up on the spot. It was pretty brave, bearing in mind the circumstances. We played it as if we were in rehearsals, starting it around the riff and then working it out. It shows that we were evolving pretty quickly.”
