Watch the Led Zeppelin Trailer for Upcoming Debut Album Reissue



In advance of the deluxe reissue editions of the band's storied first three albums, Led Zeppelin has released a trailer showcasing the self-titled debut full-length that featured such classic tracks as "Communication Breakdown" and "Good Times Bad Times."

Live versions of both songs will be featured on the album's bonus disc, a Zeppelin show recorded at L'Olympia in Paris on Oct. 10, 1969, the same year the group released its first album. The nine-track live disc includes electric renditions of "Heartbreaker," "Dazed and Confused" and rarity "White Summer."

The new trailers boasts snippets of Led Zeppelin performing at the 1969 show, as well as vintage images from the era, including concert posters and ticket stubs.

The deluxe reissue versions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III hit retailers on June 3, each album coming with all sorts of archival extras. Among the alternate versions on outtakes of the band's second album includes a previously unreleased song, "La La." The new edition of Led Zeppelin III comes with the tunes "Jennings Farm Blues," "Bathroom Sound" and "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind," giving an official release to songs previously only heard on Led Zeppelin bootlegs.

"Everything is being transferred from analog to a higher-resolution digital format," guitarist Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone in 2012 about the new reissues, promising a much-improved listening experience. "That's one of the problems with the Zeppelin stuff. It sounds ridiculous on MP3. You can't hear what's there properly."
