Are there any other officially released multi tracks other than the ones from LZ II?


Recommended Posts

Ever since I found the multi tracks for Whole Lotta Love, Heartbreaker, Ramble On, and What Is and What Should Never Be I played around with various ways of mixing and mastering these iconic Led Zeppelin songs.  Since then, I have wanted to know if Led Zeppelin ever released other multi tracks?  I think it could be that the tapes are in bad shape and the information can't be retrieved.  However, Led Zeppelin has released remasters of almost all of their songs.  So this raises the question (for me at least), if the mastering tapes are in good condition, what about the multi tracks?  I mean, with the complete fame Led Zeppelin has received for the past 50 years, I would assume the engineers and Jimmy Page would be smart enough to store their tapes properly.  But, I'm probably just stupid and Jimmy doesn't want to release the tapes.  I would be fine with that because I respect Jimmy and his decisions.  I just wanted to know if anyone knew of any available multi tracks so that us Zep Heads can listen to the iconic sounds isolated.

Simple answer,  No.   There are some of Bonham's isolated drum tracks which are necessary listening but other than that there are no other broken down or isolated tracks that are in public circulation.  I do not know what others may be hoarding.

No full multitracks circulate (at least not openly). In addition to the Bonham tracks, there's a single multi of Plant's vocal on Since I've Been Loving You - but I've only seen the vocal track, never the other multis that make up that track.
