article imageLed Zeppelin releasing new songs with remastered first 3 albums

Led Zeppelin fans will be circling June 3 on their calendars, the date for a massive release of Led Zeppelin material, some never available before. The band will re-release their first three albums, remastered with new material recorded at the same time.
They're describing it as an "extensive reissue program" and in time all nine Led Zep studio albums will be remastered and re-released, each with an accompanying album of other material recorded around the same time; also included will be live tracks and even other takes on songs.
These first three new versions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III will all be on store shelves June 3. The grand master behind it all is the band's guitar player, Jimmy Page.
"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," the 70-year-old said on his website. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions and new material recorded at the time."
These albums will available in a multitude of formats: as single CDs, two-disc deluxe editions, single LP on 180-gram vinyl, deluxe-edition vinyl and even on digital download. For the more devout fan there will also be a "Super Deluxe Boxed Set" that will include a host of other goodies, such as the albums on both CD and vinyl and a hard-cover book with previously unissued photos and other memorabilia.
Led Zeppelin broke up in 1980 after the death of drummer John Bonham. They have appeared on-stage together sporadically since, including playing a charity at London's 02 arena in 2006 with Bonham's son, Jason, playing drums.
