Jimmy Page has revealed via his Facebook page, that he will release his music for Lucifer Rising next week.
In a “special announcement” Page said:
On March 20th, the Spring Equinox 2012, the title music for Lucifer Rising and Other Sound Tracks will have its premiere and release.
The title music, along with other musical pieces recorded at my home studio in the early Seventies, have been revisited, remixed and released for the first time.
This is a musical diary of avant-garde compositions and experiments, one of which was to appear on the film Lucifer Rising.
The collection has been exhumed and is now ready for public release. This will be available exclusively on the website.
There will be a standard release on heavyweight vinyl.
In addition there will be a special run of 418 numbered copies. The first 93 copies will be signed and numbered.
There are liner notes and commentary to each track. The tracks are:
1) Lucifer Rising - Main Track
4) Damask - Ambient
5) Lucifer Rising - Percussive Return
Jimmy Page, March 2012
As you all know, Page was originally asked to write the music for the film by Kenneth Anger, but various difficulties saw their collaboration fall apart. Anger later claimed he could turn the guitarist into a toad or a statue of gold.
While Page’s soundtrack has been available as a bootleg for some years, this is its first official release, which you can purchase via Jimmy Page’s website
This is what the bootleg version sounds like:
And what Kenneth Anger said after being asked just one more question about Jimmy Page.
