Led Zeppelin is reissuing its first three albums in June, but fans are getting some Zeppelin rarities ahead of that.
Specifically, fans are getting to hear previously unreleased versions of “Whole Lotta Love” and “Keys to the Highway”.
Jimmy Page grabbed the tracks from the band’s vault.
“Keys to the Highway” was recorded in 1970. Robert Plant says he and Jimmy Page were just fooling around when they put it on tape. The “Whole Lotta Love” track is an early version—missing some vocals, slide guitar, the middle section, and first chorus.
If you were wondering if this new material and the album reissues were a sign that Zeppelin was going to do some reunion shows, Robert Plant says there’s zero chance.
Jimmy Page said, “I’m sure people would love to hear it. I’m not the one to be asking, I don’t sing.”
