AUDIO: Led Zeppelin stream unreleased live track from reissue project

Led Zeppelin are streaming a live version of “Good Times Bad Times” from the forthcoming reissue of their 1969 debut album, “Led Zeppelin I.”

The remastered debut album package features the band recorded in concert at the L'Olympia in Paris on October 10, 1969.

“This is how we started off the set at Olympia," said Jimmy Page in a released statement. "And you can just feel the energy on this. It's wild, but it's contained."

"'Good Times Bad Times' is the nearest thing you’d ever come to a sort of rock ditty,” adds Robert Plant. “I mean, how did I know about the 'days of my youth I was told what it means to be a man' and all that stuff? It’s almost Tin Pan Alley, but played brilliantly.”

Due June 2 (June 3 in North America), the band are also releasing reissues of “Led Zeppelin II” and “Led Zeppelin III” the same day.

Deluxe editions of the group’s first three albums are the first projects announced as part of an extensive reissue program that will see all nine of the band’s studio albums reissued in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page.
