Led Zeppelin is back with 'Whole Lotta' unreleased tunes

By Michael RoddyApril 23, 2014 7:36 AM

LONDON (Reuters) - Legendary rockers Led Zeppelin said on Wednesday they will include previously unreleased songs in the first batch of reissues of their nine studio albums, including a version of their pulsating "Whole Lotta Love"

The reissues, remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page, will be launched on June 3 with deluxe editions of "Led Zeppelin", "Led Zeppelin II" and "Led Zeppelin III". Each album will include a second disc of unreleased music related to that album.
 
"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," Page is quoted as saying in a statement from the band.
 
"It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time."
 
The companion audio for the band's 1969 debut album "Led Zeppelin" features a previously unreleased performance recorded in October of that year at the Olympia Theatre in Paris. The nine-song set features seven tracks from the album, including a 15-minute version of "Dazed And Confused".
 
"Led Zeppelin II" features some of the band's most famous tracks including "Ramble On" and "Heartbreaker" as well as "Whole Lotta Love," a fixture in the pantheon of classic rock ‘n' roll songs.
 
Its companion audio contains alternate mixes of five songs from the album, including "Whole Lotta Love", plus backing tracks to "Thank You" and "Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)," and the previously unreleased track "La La."
 
The nine tracks featured on the companion audio to "Led Zeppelin III" include outtakes of songs from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: "Jennings Farm Blues", "Bathroom Sound", and the band's take on the blues classics "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind."
 
Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005 and a year later was awarded the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm.
 
Founding members John Paul Jones, Page and Robert Plant - along with Jason Bonham, the son of drummer John Bonham, who died in 1980, the year the band broke up - gave a tribute concert at London's O2 Arena in 2007 for the late Ahmet Ertegun, founder of the band's label, Atlantic.
 
Band members have since discounted the prospect of another reunion.

I listened to so much Zeppelin in middle and high school, that I have almost permanently played them out...so I'm definitely looking forward to some unreleased stuff.

I really, really, really hope they either tour or a play reunion shows at big festivals someday. Could you imagine how nuts Bonnarroo, Coachella, or Glastonbury would be with Zeppelin headlining? Robert Plant's voice has held up relatively well too, so they would still kill it live, even without Bonham.

Unreleased and cutting room floor stuff always facinates me.  Why didnt it make the cut?  Was it a marketing decision?  Creative?  Simply never finished?  And with the case of Zeppelin... so much of it was Blues based... like the Youtube video I posted.

A 15 minute Dazed and Confused??  Cant wait!  8)

If Alvin Brown wants an actually "historic" concert in Jacksonville, a stop from a reunited Led Zeppelin would fit the bill. But Zeppelin would almost certainly need to have Everbank Field booked and that would mean the residents of St.Nicholas would have to put up with that damned "Rock and or Roll" for the night.
