JIMMY PAGE: What's Hiding in the Vault?
In addition to hopefully re-releasing the entire Led Zeppelin catalog soon, Jimmy Page also has other tapes in his archive that he'd like to get out. Among them are the sessions he did with Chris Squire and Alan White of Yes, when they were trying to form band called XYZ.
"The material was good," says Page, adding that he has the multi-tracks. As for the name of the band, it stood for ex-Yes and ex-Zeppelin. Robert Plant was asked to sing, but he declined. Also in the vault is a live Yardbirds album from 1968, which came out in 1971 until Page forced the label to withdraw it.
