Led Zeppelin to reissue first three albums with bonus, unheard material
Led Zeppelin have announced plans to reissue their first three albums with four previously unheard tracks set to accompany each release.

New song 'La La' will appear on the second disc of 'Led Zeppelin II', while the additional audio disc accompanying 'Led Zeppelin III' will feature 'Jennings Farm Blues', 'Bathroom Sound' and 'Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.' All of these songs have been previously available on bootlegs but the June 2 reissue of the three albums will mark the first time the tracks have been made widely available.

'Led Zeppelin' will come with a recording of a gig recorded at Olympia Theatre in Paris from October 1969. In addition to 'La La', the 'Led Zeppelin II' companion audio will also include alternate mixes of five songs from the album, backing tracks to 'Thank You' and 'Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman)'. Meanwhile, there will be nine tracks featured on 'Led Zeppelin III''s bonus disc with seven studio outtakes of songs from the album as well as the three previously unheard compositions

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," said guitarist Jimmy Page. "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 released on CD and vinyl as well as digitally on June 2 with all tracks remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page. All nine of the band's studio albums are due to be reissued in the same style.
