First batch of Led Zeppelin remasters out June 3rd...

by Otto Man

Led Zeppelin have announced the complete details of the latest remastered and expanded versions of their first three albums. Each album will be released in various formats on June 3rd. Going forward, Led Zeppelin’s other six albums will get similar treatment in chronological order.

All three albums will be released on CD, digitally, and 180-gram vinyl. The vinyl release will attempt to replicate the original packaging perfectly (including ‘Led Zeppelin III”s original wheel and die-cut holes).

There will also be a “Deluxe Edition” (available in all three formats) of each disc containing a set of bonus tracks. ‘Led Zeppelin 1’ contains an October 1969 show from the Olympia Paris in it’s entirety. Meanwhile 2 and 3’s deluxe editions will have alternate takes and mixes, instrumental backing tracks and previously unreleased songs.

In addition, there will be a Super Deluxe Boxed Set for each album that contains the Deluxe Edition on both CD and vinyl, with a card for high-definition digital download. Also included in the Super Deluxe Boxed Set is a hardcover 70+-page book about the album and a high-quality print of the original album cover, with the first 30,000 individually numbered. The set for ‘Led Zeppelin’ features a replica of the press kit from that album
