Led Zeppelin will release a box set featuring the first three albums remastered by Jimmy Page on June 3. In the deluxe version, each disc will have a companion disc that features unreleased music related to that recording session for that album.
This is the first installment in their plan to re-release all nine albums. For details about box set options and to pre-order, click here.
Page said: “The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording. It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions and new material recorded at the time.”
The reissues will be available in these formats:
–Single CD – Remastered album packaged in a gatefold card wallet.
–Deluxe edition (two CDs) – Remastered album, plus a second disc of unreleased companion audio.
–Single LP – Remastered vinyl album, packaged in a sleeve that replicates the LP’s first pressing. (For example, III will feature the original wheel and die cut holes.)
