Hear Led Zeppelin's Bassy 'Hots on for Nowhere' Reference Mix

Led Zeppelin recorded their seventh studio album, 1976's Presence, over the course of 18 days in Munich. While they were making it, they made reference mixes of some of the songs, five of which will appear on the upcoming companion disc to deluxe editions of the record. The group has just released a raw-sounding version of the LP's boogieing guitar extravaganza "Hots on for Nowhere," which features more of John Paul Jones' bass and none of Robert Plant's "Hey babe!" improvs at the end. Jimmy Page's wildly impressive guitar work also sounds a little crisper.

The deluxe edition of Presence – due out July 31st, along with souped-up versions of 1979's In Through the Out Door and 1982's Coda, rounding out the band's reissue campaign – will also contain reference mixes of "For Your Life," "Royal Orleans" and "Achilles Last Stand," the last of which had the working title "Two Ones Are Won." It also includes a reference mix for a previously unreleased and curiously titled instrumental, "10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod)."

As with the previous reissues in the campaign, Page has personally remastered each of the discs and dug through the band's archives for companion audio to deluxe editions. Each of the three albums will also be available in a variety of formats, ranging from digital and single-disc CDs and vinyl to a lavish super-deluxe edition, which contains CD, vinyl and digital deluxe editions, as well as a hardbound book and a print of the featured LP's cover.

Coda is notable among the reissues because it contains two discs of companion audio, which cover recordings the group made between 1968 and 1974. Rolling Stone premiered the song rare track "Sugar Mama" from these discs, which is available to stream here.
