Previously Unheard Studio Mixes of "Rock And Roll" and "Friends" Produced/Hand-Picked By Jimmy Page
In advance of Led Zeppelin's 50th Anniversary celebration, slated to commence in September 2018, the band wets fan's appetites with this colored 7-inch single produced/hand-picked by Jimmy Page and featuring two previously unheard studio mixes: the Sunset Sound Mix of "Rock And Roll" b/w the Olympic Studios Mix of "Friends." The previously unreleased version of "Rock And Roll" provides an additional peak into the fabled Sunset Sound Mixes of Led Zeppelin IV. Only two previous Sunset Sound Mixes have been released, the first being the well-known version of "When The Levee Breaks" on the original album and the second the "Stairway To Heaven" mix that debuted on 2014 companion disc in the deluxe edition. The previously unheard Olympic Studios Mix of "Friends" is a stripped-down version, without the orchestration of the final mix.
