LED ZEPPELIN: Rain Without the Piano
Band offers up a sneak peak at an alternate version of ‘The Rain Song.’
Led Zeppelin has offered up a sneak peak at an alternate version of “The Rain Song,” which is part of the bonus disc on the reissue of Houses of the Holy, which comes out on October 28th along with the reissue of Led Zeppelin 4.
Speaking of the “Mix Minus Piano” version of the song, Jimmy Page says, “‘The Rain Song’ is the sort of piece of music that Led Zeppelin could approach and do so successfully and so masterfully. This whole genre of the sensitivity, where it can sort of caress you, it’s something that I’ve always been very proud of. The companion disc version is really a good blend of everything that’s actually being played.”
Page oversaw the entire catalog reissue campaign. The next one will be Physical Graffiti early next year.
