Nearly half a century after it was created, a long-lost Led Zeppelin cut is finally seeing the light of day. “Sugar Mama” was recorded during sessions for the band’s debut album in 1968, but was ultimately shelved. After decades of floating around on poor-quality bootlegs, the song is finally getting its first legitimate release as a bonus track on the upcoming Coda deluxe edition. This is just the latest treasure unearthed during Zep’s extensive reissue series, which most recently included the a multi-disc set of the mammoth Physical Graffiti.
Coda, the 1982 album composed of outtakes spanning the band’s career, will boast two additional discs of unissued material, including the cuts “If It Keeps On Raining”, “Four Hands”, “St. Tristan’s Sword”, and “Desire.” It will also feature an early version of “When The Levee Breaks,” and recordings made by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page during their trip to India in 1972. The beefed up album hits the streets on July 31st, but listen to the track above to get a taste!
