John Davis Interview

Celebration Day Audio Mastering Engineer John Davis appeared on Dee 106.3 and Silk 106.9 to talk with Brian Plumridge about the Grammy's, and the Led Zeppelin remasters, which he is also mastering.

Some quotes from the interview (emphasis mine):

There's stuff that's never been out before. There's new songs they've found, new versions of classics. They've gone back to the taped source, which is an incredible thing. The masters they're using have never been played before, so they just sound so vital as opposed to remastering tracks from tapes that have been played for 20, 30 years. You just lose a lot of the vibe, and the quality goes. But all this stuff just sounds like it was recorded yesterday.

I don't know when it's going to come out. On Led Zeppelin time they do like to take their time and get the right slot. But when it does come out all of the bonus albums have just got incredible stuff on it and I think it's just going to be fantastic when it comes out.

The all singing, all dancing version, and all the albums and all of the bonus disks, I'll be very surprised if that doesn't. be on the Grammy for next year.

On the 20th of February, we've got like a day of press. So people coming in from all over the world, so he's (Jimmy Page) gonna  of an interview, just going through the box sets and what the plans are.
