Led Zeppelin have announced a comprehensive, multi-format reissue of the soundtrack to their 1976 concert film The Song Remains The Same.
It will be released on September 7, 50 years to the day that the four members of Led Zeppelin first performed together under the name The New Yardbirds.
The fully remastered album will be released on CD, digital, 4xLP and Blu-Ray formats, as well as a ‘super deluxe box set’ edition which includes vinyl, CD and DVD versions plus a photobook, concert programme replica and art print.
