VIDEO: Led Zeppelin preview expanded reissue of Presence

Led Zeppelin have issued a video preview of the forthcoming expanded reissue of their 1976 album, “Presence.”

Due July 31, the project features the original album plus a bonus disc featuring five unreleased mixes from the sessions, including alternate versions of “For Your Life,” “Achilles Last Stand” and “Royal Orleans” alongside the previously unheard instrumental, “10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod).”

Led Zeppelin’s seventh record, “Presence” hit No. 1 on both sides of the Atalantic, topping the UK charts and the US Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than 3 million copies in the States alone.

“Presence” is one of three albums set to be issued on July 31 that will wrap up a year-long campaign by the group; also due is 1979’s “In Through The Out Door” and 1982’s “Coda.”

All three have been newly remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by a companion audio disc featuring previously unreleased material related to the original release.
