Led Zeppelin circa 1969
led-zeppelin-1969

This summer, Led Zeppelin will reissue their first three albums--Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III--along with some previously unreleased material. It serves as the first installment of a larger reissue initiative spearheaded by guitarist/producer Jimmy Page. Page-remastered versions of I, II, and II are due to hit stores on June 3 as single discs, 2xCDs with unreleased material, single LPs 180-gram vinyl, deluxe vinyl, and digital downloads.

The deluxe-edition of Led Zeppelin is set to feature a live recording of their October 10th, 1969, gig at the Olympia in Paris. II includes alternate mixes of five LP tracks, the previously unreleased "La La," and the backing tracks for "Thank You" and "Living Loving Maid." III's deluxe treatment boasts seven-studio outtakes of album tracks alongside three never-before-released instrumentals. According to Rolling Stone, they're also working on a limited-edition "Super Deluxe Boxed Set" of each album that includes all of the audio on CD, vinyl, as well as a high-definition audio download card, a hard-bound book, and a high-quality print of the album cover. The first 30,000-copies will be numbered, and the special edition also contain a replica of the band's original Atlantic press kit.

Check out the tracklistings for the bonus material below...

Do a proper tour? That sounds ridiculous. No Bonham! What's the point?!

Also, its a fantastic idea to have these remastered by someone that is 45 years older than they were when first released. I'm sure he can still hear just as well as he did in 1969.

PASS!

Live Zeppelin is pretty phenomenal from back in the early days.
Brutal crunching and ripping guitar sound with deep rumbling bass and pounding drums. Way better than the studio. Plant? Well, uh… never mind.

Bonham is worth the listen to all of this stuff.
No one has his feel and pull on the swing of a riff.

For the first comment those Zep lps are actually getting harder and harder to find. Everything except Presence probably lasts 2mins if you can find one in a used store

Friend. Friend. FRIEND! No. Simply, no. Ringo? GTFO. Watts, yes, he was, and still is, the clock behind a kit which every single drummer is measured. But, and this is a big one, JB had the fucking weight of hammers along with great timing. That's what gave LZ their motherfucking heavy sound. Ginger Baker? Yeah, amazing too. But still no JB.

1001 Is actually correct. They said "No one has his feel and pull on the swing of a riff." which is true. He didn't say he's the best but unique which is absolutely true.

I love it when posters pretend to be other people to pat themselves on the back. No friend, it's pretty clear that the argument is specious - unique? Sure, by that standard everyone gets a prize. Too bad that standard is useless.

the 1st record is great, after that it's Foghat with a better manager.

^ even if they blatantly ripped off the real innovators, the blues performers that died destitute while LZ were flying around in their own 737 care of all the white kids' money.

Led Zep did show a generation of musicians how to blindly steal ideas and not just get away with it but to rob the original of their rightful monetary compensation. And we worry about having to pay if we use the 4th note of a phrase - it's tragically hilarious

12:14 is spot on. Whether you haven't grown out of your Hot Topic Led Zep baseball shirt, or you are a rockin grandaddy who still wants to hear In My Time of Dying one more time, you should at least learn some history.

Posted by xTAINTx | March 15, 2014 3:57 PM

@12:14 So what blues musicians did Zeppelin steal from to write Good Times Bad Times , Communication Breakdown, Immigrant Song, Black Dog, Over the Hills and Far Away, Heartbreaker ,Kashmir? Name the originals from where these Zeppelin songs were lifted from. Apart from Whole Lotta Love , Dazed and Confused, In My Time of Dying and Nobody's Fault But Mine the rest of their catalogue is very original.Whole Lotta Love only resembles Muddy Waters You Need Love by Robert Plant's vocals, take that away and it's a different arrangement.

Posted by john fremont | March 15, 2014 10:28 PM

True Led Zep made a boatload of money off of their shits, but they were just following in the footsteps of the so called ripped off black musicians who did basically same thing - only they didn't achieve the fame and fortune of LZ.

Posted by Anonymous | March 15, 2014 10:29 PM

10:28 - honestly, you're wrong. There's plenty more. Even Stairway is a ripoff (albeit of some white non-blues people). At one point there were 26 separate lawsuits against them for infringement. Do some research.

I am agreeing with RD for the first time. Queen was the best of that time and genre. Arctic Monkeys are still boring.

Posted by Anonymous | March 16, 2014 7:38 PM

@ 7:38

Apples and oranges. LZ was heavy metal R + B, Queen was more of heavy metal Broadway show tunes pop band.

From that same time, had they stayed together, Mott the Hoople would have been one of the biggest bands in the world. Ian Hunter is still churning out great solo records btw.

I don't think I'm particularly big - just average, I guess - but no woman has ever said "i wish your dick was as big as a led zeppelin apologist". I've never really shown mine to a guy, but clearly you habe high standards in your men. Sorry that some of us don't add up.

Look here, I like Led Zep as much as any other red blooded American child of the 70s, but fuck me you need to face the facts that theses guys ripped off the innovators, pure and simple. Sure, they put their own spin on it, but the crime is undeniable and they are patently unrepentant about it. So, imagine if that were you that got ripped off of your intellectual property, and you died destitute while they bought castles and jumbo jets, basically on your dime, you might be a little pissed off too. At least Kiss didn't rip off another act's shtick - maybe Kiss should be so honored as well?
