Led Zeppelin To Release Expanded ‘BBC Sessions’

In my opinion, this is one of the most exciting pieces of Zeppelin news-aside from a “reunion”-that could come out. The BBC Sessions are on of my favorite live albums of all time and it seems it’s due for and update. According to rollingstone.com, “The group has uncovered more rarities: eight unreleased recordings they made for the BBC, including a “lost” three-song session from 1969. These new discoveries will round out an expanded and remastered edition of the band’s 1997 release, BBC Sessions, which covers recordings made between 1969 and 1971, for what it has renamed The Complete BBC Sessions.” The new package is expected on September 6th.

Rolling Stone also reported, “The previously unreleased tracks will complete a third disc of the previously two-disc compilation. These include two versions of “Communication Breakdown” and “What Is and What Should Never Be,” as well as “Dazed and Confused.”

These sessions where often fabled to be erased and/or lost. What also makes this exciting is the existence of a boogieing, unreleased, blues-rocker “Sunshine Woman”. The Complete BBC Sessions will be available in a variety of formats. The simplest way to acquire the album is a three-CD deluxe edition, the first two discs with the expected sessions, the third disc with the new content. There will also be a 180 gram 5 LP edition as well as a super deluxe edition. The super deluxe contains the 5 LPs as well as a 48-page book that features photos and details on the recording sessions and a high-quality, limited edition print of the original album cover.
