Jimmy Page Previews Led Zeppelin Bonus Tracks

(Radio.com) There's a lot of excitement about the upcoming Led Zeppelin reissues of their first three albums; a large part of that is because of the inclusion of a second disc of bonus material that will accompany deluxe and super deluxe editions of each release.

On Tuesday in New York City, Jimmy Page played a selection of bonus tracks from the band's first three albums and then took questions from the audience, made up of representatives from various news outlets.

Before playing the unreleased tracks, Page said that he'd been working on the reissues for about three years, and that the project started when he finished work on Celebration Day, the live documenting of their 2007 one-off reunion concert. He also said that the reissue program would extend into 2015, and will include all nine Led Zeppelin studio albums (including the posthumous release Coda).

After that, the lights dimmed, the screen showed a giant Led Zeppelin logo surrounded by replicas of Led Zeppelin I, II and III and a furious "Communication Breakdown" exploded from the speakers.

Page later explained that Zeppelin's 1969 debut didn't actually have any leftover material, so the bonus disc is a full length concert recording from Paris in '69. Frontman Robert Plant sounded a bit nervous on "Communication Breakdown," but more comfortable on the slow blues burner "You Shook Me." more on this story
