Led Zeppelin preview unreleased tracks from Led Zeppelin I reissue

Led Zeppelin are sharing a preview of unreleased live tracks from their forthcoming reissue of their 1969 debut album, “Led Zeppelin I.”

The remastered debut album package preview features snippets of "Good Times Bad Times" and "Communication Breakdown" recorded at the L'Olympia in Paris on October 10, 1969.

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.

Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," says Page. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time."

The reissues will be available in a variety of formats – learn more details here.
