Led Zeppelin hint at release of more unheard music

Led Zeppelin have hinted they may release more compilations of unheard material, following forthcoming expanded versions of their first three albums.

The band release Deluxe Editions of their first three albums, Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III, on June 2. Each has a second disc featuring unheard live tracks and previously-unreleased studio songs. Jimmy Page, who oversaw the expanded albums, says he may work on future compilations of unavailable material.

"I asked a guy that runs one of the fanzines if he'd heard any of this material before, and he told me hadn't. That was a good feeling." The unheard songs include a cover of blues standard "Keys To The Highway" and out-takes of "Immigrant Song" and "Whole Lotta Love".
