Led Zeppelin to reissue first three albums with unreleased material

Led Zeppelin are to kick off a major chronological reissue programme of their entire catalogue on June 2, 2014 with deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III.

Each album has been remastered by Jimmy Page and will feature a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.

"The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin," says Page. "It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time"

Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III will each be available June 3 from Atlantic/Swan Song in the following formats:
Single CD - Remastered album packaged in a gatefold card wallet.
Deluxe Edition (2CD) - Remastered album, plus a second disc of unreleased companion audio.
