Led Zeppelin catalogue goes digital

Available for download next month

Boost IT visibility and business value

Veteran rock outfit Led Zeppelin has announced it'll make its catalogue available on 13 November from "all online music retailers", Reuters reports.

Guitarist Jimmy Page said in a statement: "We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalogue will now be available digitally. The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain their music in whichever manner they prefer."

As well as punting existing material on the net, Zep will also release Mothership, a "two-CD collection spanning the group's 12-year career", plus a remixed version of 1973's The Song Remains the Same.

And if that's not enough, the band is "teaming up with mobile provider Verizon Wireless to provide ring tones and full song downloads" for true disciples.

Led Zeppelin is, of course, due to appear for a one-off gig on 26 November at London's O2 Arena. The gig has caused a few problems for promotor Harvey Goldsmith, with tickets popping up on eBay contrary to the "you bought it, only you can use it" rule. ®
