Rolling Stones + Jimmy Page: Unheard 1974 Track Revealed

23 Jul 2020

The Rolling Stones have unveiled "Scarlet," a previously unheard track featuring Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and Blind Faith's Rick Gerch.

Recorded by the band in October 1974, guitarist Keith Richards explained how it came to be, ''My recollection is we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving, and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimmy decided to stay. We weren't actually cutting it as a track, it was basically for a demo, a demonstration, you know, just to get the feel of it, but it came out well, with a line-up like that, you know, we better use it.''

In a series of tweets, Page revealed that their jamming session turned into a "lock-in."

"Keith kicked it off and I began to mould a riff around his guitar part to augment the arrangement," he said of the creative process. It began to lock-in pretty soon with the musicians and we all got a successful take that evening. I'd had a good time working with Keith."

"Scarlet" will feature on the rock veterans' upcoming September 4th reissue of the 1973 album Goats Head Soup.
