The wait is over Zep fanatics, the much-bootlegged 1968 track ‘Sugar Mama’ is getting a proper home as Zeppelin bring their reissue series to a close in July.
The track, initially recorded for their first album, was dropped, presumably forgotten and then inevitably bootlegged, but now this unreleased gem is finally getting a proper release.
Recorded in 1968 at Olympic Studios in the UK, the track will feature on the companion disc of the deluxe edition CODA.
Led Zeppelin’s final album, released in 1982, will be re-released on July 31 as well as Presence and In Through The Out Door.
Jimmy Page has remastered all three albums as he did with the previous deluxe editions, and the band’s archives have been raided for bonus tracks for the discs.
