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.

Jimmy Page, who oversaw the expanded albums, says he may work on future compilations of unavailable material.

“There’s certainly more things that can be done,” Page told here” target=”_blank”>Rolling Stone. “But these reissues took a lot of time, and I don’t want to start proposing another project, because it’ll take me another six months or a year. I’d rather spend time practicing my guitar and going out to play.”

Page stated he intended the unheard songs to focus on tracks that weren’t already widely available as bootlegs. “I was pretty diligent with my detection work,” he said. “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”.
