June 3rd sees the reissue of Led Zeppelin’s first three albums, each packaged with a bonus disc of extra studio tracks and live recordings selected by Jimmy Page. It’s a lot, and the Led Zeppelin guitarist has hinted that there’s even more to come… eventually.
“There’s certainly more things that can be done,” Page tells Rolling Stone. “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.”
Page says that for the extra tracks on the reissues, he wanted to focus on songs that weren’t already widely available as bootlegs. “I was pretty diligent with my detection work,” he says. “I asked a guy that runs one of the fanzines if he’d heard any of this material before, and he told me he hadn’t. That was a good feeling.”
