After the release of their deluxe early albums…
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page said more compilations of unreleased material for the band could still be released, after the upcoming release of the expanded versions of their first three albums.
Page stated: "There's certainly more things that can be done. But these reissues took a lot of time, and I don't want to start proposing another project, because it'll take me another six months or a year. I'd rather spend time practicing my guitar and going out to play."
He added that he wanted the unheard songs to focus on tracks that weren't already available as bootlegs, saying: "I was pretty diligent with my detection work. I asked a guy that runs one of the fanzines if he'd heard any of this material before, and he told me hadn't. That was a good feeling." The unheard songs include a cover of blues standard 'Keys To The Highway' and out-takes of 'Immigrant Song' and 'Whole Lotta Love.'"
Deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III are due out on June 2.
