Led Zeppelin adds 4 unreleased live tracks to 'The Song Remains the Same' box set

music news 22/06/2018

An expanded version of Led Zeppelin's 1976 live album and concert film 'The Song Remains the Same' is due to release on September 7 with additions of four unreleased live tracks, newly remastered audio among other features.

Coincidentally, it will also be the 50th anniversary of their very first show together, under the moniker 'The New Yardbirds' in 1968.

On top of the Super Deluxe Edition Box, the album and film will reissue in digital formats, CD, Blu-ray, streaming and vinyl (see below for full info).

Bonus content with unreleased video performances that were not formerly part of The Song Remains the Same concert film, “Celebration Day”, 

“Over The Hills And Far Away”, “Misty Mountain Hop” and “The Ocean” will be released with 5.1 audio.

The reissued campaign will feature newly remastered audio overseen by Jimmy Page himself. There will be an uncut 29-minute version of "Dazed and Confused" on one side of the vinyl.

Previously, Page has said that remastering Led Zeppelin's old work isn't just "another band putting out their material with a few bonus tracks", but the substantial box-sets and CDs were something to address all formats of listening for Led Zeppelin fans.
