A 7" vinyl single being released on Record Store Day 2017 on April 22 features both Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.

The single, "Picking Up The Sunshine" by Beverley Martyn, was recorded in 1966 and featured both Page and Jones as backing musicians.

The single includes "Picking Up The Sunshine" and "Me & My Gin." It's limited to 500 copies, but the full previously unreleased album will be released in the future.

Here's how Record Store Day describes the release in its official PDF document:

  In 1966 singer-songwriter BEVERLEY MARTYN began recording sessions with record producer DENNY CORDELL. Cordell's preferred studio studio musicians for the sessions included Jimmy Page & John Renbourn (guitars), John Paul Jones (bass), Alan White (drum), Nicky Hopkins (piano), Mike Lease (organ), and an album's worth of material was laid down. The recordings included her own songs, some of which remained unreleased until she re-recorded them years later with her husband John Martyn, and a choice selection of songs written by Randy Newman and Donovan alongside blues staples such as 'Me and My Gin' and 'Stormy Monday Blues'.

Both her debut 45 'Happy New Year' and follow-up 'Museum' - released in 1966 and 1977 respectively - were critically acclaimed but failed to make any impression in the charts on either side of the Atlantic. BEVERLY went to California in April 1967 as a guest of Paul Simon and performed at the seminal MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL. On her return to England she and Cordell disagreed on the direction her music was being taken and her album was shelved.

50 years later those session tapes have been located and restored, showcasing a moment in the sixties which in hindsight radiates a vivaciousness and energy which criminally evaded a wider public audience. Until now. As a taster for the forthcoming release of Beverly's long lost album this exclusive Record Store Day release presents two previously unreleased tracks which are exclusive to this special edition. 'Picking Up The Sunshine' was written for Beverly by Donovan. 'Me and My Gin' is a blues staple with Page and Hopkins in their element. This release features special stereo mixes of take 1's of both cuts and are exclusive to this release and won't be included in the forthcoming album.

Wonder if the Crowes material will be on this release. Certainly a more interesting setlist than the Greek Theatre release imo.

It's is a 10' vinyl and will have 3 songs from the Jones Beach Theater concert; Misty Mountain Hop, Bring It On Home and In The Light. Would love to see the whole concert put on vinyl or at least a double vinyl from it.

Would love sometime in the future to see a RSD release with live material from the Walking Into Clarksdale tour.

Yeah, I have no problem getting up extra. extra early for a marbled vinyl of Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes. Just say limited edition Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes marbled vinyl for RSD and I'll be there early. At the latest I'll be there at 3 am. There's no fun in getting one off ebay compared to getting it hot right off the shelf if possible!!

Is a CD also being released? I wish they at least offered a hi-definition download for those of us who don't have functioning turntables anymore.

Not sure if there are any plans for a CD release. If you want Tea41 PM me your address info and I will make and send you a CD from my vinyl no charge.

The black centre disc is pretty jarring compared to the marble effect on the vinyl.

Would have liked to have seen something that blended in better.

Just listened to my copy. Very good performance by the band. Appreciated the nod to The Yardbird's I Ain't Done Wrong at the end of Bring It On Home.

Production: I like the black and white marble like vinyl. The disc is an EP which is a few inches smaller than a regular lp. There are two areas of distortion in the grooves of In The Light. (A production glitch)

My disc is numbered under 200.

And what about the sound of this marbled vinyl? I have the Black Crowes "Wiser For The Time" 4LP-Set on marbled vinyl & it sounds really awful.

I think they did a good job, the sound is good and no major flaws while playing it.

Got mine too. No distortion as described above. A real nice collectible, with only 4000 released.
