Led Zeppelin Share Unheard 'In the Evening' Rough Mix [LISTEN]



Sad news for Zeppelin fans--July 31 will mark the last release date for the Led Zeppelin album reissues, spanning all nine of their unforgettable studio albums. The final three to be remastered by Jimmy Page himself are 1976's Presence, 1979's In Through the Out Door and 1982's Coda. Each release features bonus material, alternative recordings and mixes of fan favorite tracks. Today (July 10), the band shared an unearthed and stripped down version of "In the Evening (Rough Mix)" off of Out Door via Yahoo! Music.



The previously unheard track lacks special effects and finishing touches heard on the final cut. Unlike the renowned version chock-full of noise, it's evident that Robert Plant's voice is empty and toned down without the album version's pulsation of effects. Page's guitar work and John Bonham's drumming face a shortage of harsh, involved noises and instead entertain a more crisp sound.

The In Through the Out Door reissue will incorporate rough mixes of each of the seven tracks including four budding tracks crafted by Plant, Page, Bonham and John Paul Jones before they could even agree on a fitting song title. "The Epic" would be later known as the ten-minute extavaganza of "Carouselambra," while "The Hook" morphed into the radio staple "All My Love." "Blot" evolved into "I'm Gonna Crawl," and "Southbound Piano" eventually formed "South Bound Suarez," Rolling Stone reports.

Presence will introduce five reference mixes of album tracks along with the previously unearthed "Hots on for Nowhere" and a never-before-heard instrumental called "10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod)." Coda will offer two discs loaded with companion audio, along with rare track "Sugar Mama."
