LED ZEPPELIN - The Last Remaster?

"That's it," my ass! Jimmy Page has charmingly told us about the new editions of "Presence", "In Through The Out Door" and "Coda". With "The Complete BBC Sessions" the 72-year-old Englishman once again enters the Remasters-Ring and adds eight songs to the live recordings from the late 60s and early 70s as well as a lot of discussion needs. We report what awaits the fan and discuss with Jimmy Page the new extended and revised re-release - possibly the last remaster.

JOHN COLTRANE - How a Jazz Monument Changed Rock

John Coltrane, called Trane, was already a legend in his lifetime. He changed jazz like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker before him. He also seemed to share fate with the latter. Born on September 23, 1926, he was anything but a whiz kid. He grew up in the age of the great tenor saxophonists. Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young had shown the way, and the big labels of jazz like Prestige and Blue Note tried to get the instrumentalists from each other. Coltrane has released records on both labels, but on many of these recordings, which today run under his name, he was only led posthumously as a bandleader, because actually he was only involved in it as a sideman.
