It’s not often that Led Zeppelin releases any new previously unreleased music from the archives – and when they do, it’s certainly a big deal. On Thursday, it was announced that the band’s first three albums – Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III – will be reissued on June 3 with a second disc of never-before-released bonus music. All of the albums were remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page. It’s an appropriate occasion given the fact that this is the 45th anniversary of the band’s debut album.
