Description

Outrider is an album by Jimmy Page, released by Geffen Records on 19 June 1988. It is his first (and to date, only) genuine solo album, and the first time since 1969 he recorded with a record label other than Atlantic Records/Swan Song Records. It was recorded at The Sol, Page's personal studio. Robert Plant guests on one track, "The Only One", while John Bonham's son Jason drums with Page for the first time on record. This was originally intended to be a two album release. However, during the early recording stages of this album, Page's house was broken into and amongst the items stolen were the demo tapes which had been recorded up to that point.Reportedly some of these demos were released as bootleg recordings and according to various Led Zeppelin biographies, Page was rather demoralized in regards to the break-in and the album suffered as a result. The album reached #26 on Billboard's Billboard 200 chart, also peaking at #27 on the UK Album Chart. Years later, Page reflected on the album in rather positive terms: Outrider's all right. It's demo-like compared with those overproduced albums that came out at the time. It didn't do very well - doesn't matter - but I did tour. I was playing music on that tour going right back to The Yardbirds. Jason [Bonham] was the drummer on that tour. Line-Up: Jimmy Page: Guitars, Synthesizer, vocals. Robert Plant: Vocals.
