The new unboxing video, attached above, showcases the remastered 180-gram vinyl version of ‘Led Zeppelin’ with replica sleeve, the second disc of audio extras, the hard-bound 70-page book, the high-quality print of the original album cover and the replica press kit that accompanied the original project.

This massive reissue is due on June 3, along with deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin ‘II’ and ‘III,’ as well. The group has already previewed a live version of “Good Times Bad Times/Communication Breakdown,” recorded at Paris’ L’Olympia in October of 1969 and included as a a previously unreleased track inside the ‘Led Zeppelin’ set.

“The material on the companion discs presents a portal to the time of the recording of Led Zeppelin,” say guitarist Jimmy Page, who oversaw these reissues. “It is a selection of work in progress with rough mixes, backing tracks, alternate versions, and new material recorded at the time.”
