Led Zeppelin have announced the 2nd phase of their reissue campaign: deluxe reissues of the â€˜Led Zeppelin IVâ€™ (aka â€˜Zosoâ€™ or simply untitled) and â€˜Houses of the Holyâ€™ will be released on Oct. 28th.
For bonus material Page tells Radio.com, "I left no stone unturned. I was even checking out whatever had come out on bootleg that had leaked out of studios in the past - not by us, I might add. But I wanted to make sure that the material that I was going to present was not out already on bootleg."
The deluxe edition of â€˜IVâ€™ will include unreleased versions of every song heard on the original album including alternate mixes of â€˜Misty Mountain Hopâ€™ and â€˜Four Sticks,â€™ mixes of â€˜The Battle Of Evermoreâ€™ and â€˜Going To Californiaâ€™ with extra guitar and mandolin, and an alternate version of â€˜Stairway To Heaven.â€™
The Houses of the Holy reissue will include "rough and working mixes" of â€˜The Oceanâ€™ and â€˜Dancing Days,â€™ as well as a version of â€˜The Rain Songâ€™ without the song's distinct piano.
Each reissue will be available in several formats: as a single CD (with no bonus tracks), a deluxe double CD (containing all the bonus tracks), a single LP, a double LP, a digital download and a "super deluxe boxed set" including all of the above material on both CD and LP, with a hi-def audio download card, as well as a hard bound 80-page book with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
