Led Zeppelin To Issue Deluxe Editions Of First Three Albums

Today, an announcement Led Zeppelin fans have been waiting for finally came as the band revealed they will release deluxe editions of their first three albums on June 3. The deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III will contain "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 release of the first three albums will be followed by the eventual release of the rest of the group's nine studio efforts in chronological order. Guitarist Jimmy Page remastered each of the albums. "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"

Here's the formats in which the three albums will be released on June 3:

Single CD - Remastered album packaged in a gatefold card wallet.

Deluxe Edition (2CD) - Remastered album, plus a second disc of unreleased companion audio.
