Some new Zeppelin product comes your way on June 3, when Atlantic/Swan Song re-releases the first three albums in deluxe editions, each with its own bonus disc of unreleased material.

The albums are newly remastered by Jimmy Page and will appear in multiple formats (CD, vinyl, etc.). Eventually the remaining six studio albums will get the same treatment.

The first, self-titled album is accompanied by a live recording of Led Zeppelin’s October 10, 1969 at the Olympia Theatre in Paris, which includes a 15-minute “Dazed And Confused.” “Led Zeppelin II” adds five alternate mixes of album songs, backing tracks to “Thank You” and “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman),” and “La La,” a previously unreleased song. The bonus disc to “Led Zeppelin III,” finally, contains seven studio outtakes and three unreleased songs: “Jennings Farm Blues” (a “Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp” ancestor), “Bathroom Sound” (instrumental “Out On The Tiles”) and a run-through of two blues numbers, “Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind.

The complete album-by-album track listing appears below. The entire Led Zep catalog became available on Spotify not too long ago. Does this announcement mean you have to buy the whole catalog yet again? Probably not, but those alternate album covers look kinda cool.
