Led Zeppelin reissues debut on US charts

The first three reissues in the Led Zeppelin album series have debuted on the US charts.

The band’s 1969 self-titled debut, “Led Zeppelin I”, entered the Billboard 200 album chart at No. 7, “Led Zeppelin II” at No. 9 and “Led Zeppelin III” at No. 10.

With the chart showing, Led Zeppelin has become the first artist to land three albums in the top 15 at the same time since Whitney Houston scored four following her death in early 2012.

Deluxe, expanded editions of Led Zeppelin’s first three albums are the first part of an extensive reissue program that will see all nine of the band’s studio records reissued in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist/producer Jimmy Page.

The three reissues also landed in the Top 15 on the UK charts this week.

“Led Zeppelin I” entered at No. 7, “Led Zeppelin III” at No. 10 and “Led Zeppelin II” at No. 12.
