Jimmy Page, the founder of Led Zeppelin, has unfolded his memory about the recording process of an ultra-rare collaboration of him with The Rolling Stones.

To announce the release of the track ‘Scarlet‘ by The Rolling Stones, featuring him, Page shared a video on Instagram in which Mick Jagger and Jimmy talk about the times when they recorded the song.

Has been released as a part of the forthcoming ‘Goats Head Soup‘ 2020 album of The Rolling Stones, ‘Scarlet’ is a song which was shaped in October 1974. 

Jimmy Page explained that, back then, he was invited to Ronnie Woods’ house in Richmond to do a session. Met with Keith Richards and Ian Stuart there, Page revealed that they’ve completed the record in Island Number 2 Studios in London.

Here is what Jimmy Page said on his Instagram post:

“On this day in 2020, Scarlet by The Rolling Stones, featuring me, is released.⠀

I was invited to Ronnie Woods’ house in Richmond to do a session in October 1974. It was said that Keith Richards and Ian Stuart (Stu) would be there. It sounded a good opportunity to catch up with old friends.⠀

There was Keith Richards on electric guitar, myself on electric guitar, Rick Grech on bass and a drummer and engineer I had not met before. Keith kicked it off and I began to mold a riff around his guitar part to augment the arrangement. 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.”

He continued:

“It was said they were continuing the following night at Island Number 2 Studios in London. I said I’d go and play some guitar soloing on it. I arrived early on that evening and got to do it straight away within a few takes. It sounded good to me and I left them to it.⠀

Mick made contact with me recently and I got to hear the finished version. It sounded great and really solid.⠀

I’m happy they chose to release it as part of the forthcoming Goats Head Soup 2020 album. It’s an ultra-rare appearance of me outside Led Zeppelin in the ’70s.”
