Led Zeppelin?s First Three Albums Coming in New Form

Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin fans, mark your calendar. On June 3, the band’s first three albums—all newly-remastered by Jimmy Page—will be released in vastly expanded form. Each will be available in multiple formats and with a companion disc featuring previously unreleased material. The companion audio for Led Zeppelin features a previously unreleased performance recorded on October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set includes seven tracks from the album as well as "Heartbreaker" and "Moby Dick," which would debut on Led Zeppelin II later that month.

The Led Zeppelin II companion audio gives fans the first peek into the band's recording sessions, with alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to "Thank You" and "Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)" and the previously unreleased track, "La La." The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III 's companion audio offers a further window into the band's recording process, with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: "Jennings Farm Blues" (an instrumental forerunner of "Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp"), "Bathroom Sound" (an instrumental version of "Out On The Tiles") and their take on the blues classics "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind."
