Let’s all have a mystical, mythical rock party, because Spotify’s new best ever friends Led Zeppelin are at last ready to start releasing their remastered LPs series! As well as several unreleased tracks! Yes that’s right. And the series will begin 2 Jun with a triple-whammy, with the first three self-titled Led Zeppelin records, ‘I’, ‘II’ and ‘III’, arriving (individually, that is).

Each LP package will carry the original tracklisting, and an additional ‘companion disc’ of good things. So for instance with ‘I’, that’s a taping of the band’s 1969 performance at Paris Olympia, whilst with ‘II’ it means alternates, backing tracks and an unheard song titled ‘La La’. ‘III’, meanwhile, will feature an early prototype of ‘Bron-Y-Aur Stomp’ named ‘Jennings Farm Blues’, a medley of dual blues classics, ‘Keys To The Highway’/’Trouble In Mind’, and ‘Out On The Tiles’ demo ‘Bathroom Sound’.

The band’s guitarist, Jimmy Page, who’s been locked in a cupboard since 2012 working on all this, says: “The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin. It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes and new material recorded at the time”.
