article imageLed Zeppelin teases fans by releasing 2 unheard tracks from past

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 24, 2014 in Entertainment
Most of the music fans who are going to be ecstatic about this are from the older set but there'll still be a lot of them. Rock icons Led Zeppelin have released two tracks the public has never heard, that despite each being recorded back in their heyday.
The release of the two songs is part of the ramp-up to the band re-releasing their entire catalogue of albums, in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page. The first date of note in that scheme is June 3rd, when the first three Zeppelin albums will be re-released. They will include other versions of songs from the albums and even other previously unreleased songs.
One of the new tracks is not a new song for fans but this version of "Whole Lotta Love" is an earlier one than the version that opened their second album, Led Zeppelin II, released in October of 1969. The other song is their 1970 rendition of a blues classic, "Key to the Highway"; they have never previously released this song in any form.
The band, Page, John-Paul Jones and Robert Plant, did reunite for one concert at London's O2 Stadium in 2007 (with late-drummer John Bonham's son, Jason, playing drums) but have resisted other efforts to get them to play live together.
In recent years, Page has taken part in putting up a detailed Led Zeppelin website.
