In a much-anticipated move, Led Zeppelin is releasing remastered and deluxe editions of their albums in chronological order in 2014. Today, they announced a release date for their first three albums: June 3. Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III have all been remastered by producer and guitarist Jimmy Page, and will feature bonus discs of previously unreleased and live material.
Each will be released in several different formats, including CD, vinyl and digital download. A deluxe boxed set will feature all three formats, as well as a book of unseen photos, and a replica of the band’s original press kit.
The bonus disc for Led Zeppelin is a nine-song live set recorded in October 1969 at Paris’ Olympia theater. Led Zeppelin II‘s bonus disc features alternate mixes to some of the album’s most famous songs, several backing tracks and an unreleased track; while Led Zeppelin III‘s bonus material features three previously unreleased songs as well as six studio outtakes from the album’s recording.
Release dates for the remastered versions of the band’s subsequent six studio albums have not been announced.
