Led Zeppelin Share First Full Track from Upcoming Box Sets
The first full taste of the bonus live material from the upcoming expanded re-release of Led Zeppelin‘s debut album is now available in the form of a blistering 1969 take on ‘Communication Breakdown.’
The track — which also features an instrumental snippet of ‘Good Times Bad Times’ — was the opening number of the group’s October 10, 1969 show at the Olympia in Paris. As guitarist Jimmy Page proudly explains to Rolling Stone, “You can just feel the energy on this. It’s wild, but it’s contained.’
This track will be available for sale on iTunes and other digital retailers tomorrow (April 15). The initial wave of a massive, catalog-spanning Led Zeppelin re-issue campaign kicks off June 3 with the release of the group’s first three albums in a variety of formats including “Super Deluxe” box sets featuring lots of alternative takes and live songs on both CD and vinyl.
