AUDIO: Led Zeppelin stream unreleased live version of 1969 classic

Led Zeppelin are streaming a previously unreleased live version of their 1969 classic, “What Is And What Should Never Be”, as the latest preview to the forthcoming expanded edition of their 1997 set, “BBC Sessions.”

Recorded at the Paris Theatre in London on April 1, 1971, the tune from “Led Zeppelin II” is one of eight unreleased tracks featured on “The Complete BBC Sessions”, which will be available on September 16.

The package features live recordings selected from Led Zeppelin’s appearances on BBC Radio between 1969 and 1971.

The set has been newly remastered by Jimmy Page with extensive session-by-session liner notes written by Dave Lewis, providing – for the first time ever – accurate details and notes about all of the band's BBC sessions.

“What Is And What Should Never Be” follows previews of “Communication Breakdown” and the only known recording of an unreleased song, “Sunshine Woman.”

"The Complete BBC Sessions" will be available in multiple formats, including a 3CD and 5LP Deluxe Editions, digital download and a 3CD/5LP Super Deluxe Boxed Set.
