Jimmy Page - Lucifier Rising

In 1972, Kenneth Anger commissioned Jimmy Page to score the soundtrack to the film Lucifer Rising. Page ultimately recorded a 24 minute composition, but it was not used. Page and Anger had a falling out, and when the film was finally released in 1980, it featured the music of Bobby Beausoleil.


On March 20th, the Spring Equinox 2012, the title music for Lucifer Rising and Other Sound Tracks will have its premiere and release.

The title music, along with other musical pieces recorded at my home studio in the early Seventies, have been revisited, remixed and released for the first time.

This is a musical diary of avant-garde compositions and experiments, one of which was to appear on the film Lucifer Rising.

The collection has been exhumed and is now ready for public release. This will be available exclusively on the website.

There will be a standard release on heavyweight vinyl.

In addition there will be a special run of 418 numbered copies. The first 93 copies will be signed and numbered.

There are liner notes and commentary to each track. The tracks are:

Side One
1) Lucifer Rising - Main Track

Side Two

1) Incubus
2) Damask
3) Unharmonics
4) Damask - Ambient
5) Lucifer Rising - Percussive Return

Jimmy Page, March 2012
