Led Zeppelin just announced the second phase of their reissue campaign, and up next will be deluxe reissues of the band’s untitled fourth album (often referred to as “IV”), originally released in 1971, and the follow-up, 1973’s Houses of the Holy.

All of the reissues were supervised by Zeppelin’s guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. As with the reissues of the first three albums, he worked to make sure that none of the bonus material has seen the light of day before.

As Page told Radio.com, “I left no stone unturned. I was even checking out whatever had come out on bootleg that had leaked out of studios in the past – not by us, I might add. But I wanted to make sure that the material that I was going to present was not out already on bootleg.”

Zeppelin IV is the third best-selling album in U.S. history,and has been certified 23 times platinum. The LP features a number of classics, including “Rock and Roll,” “Black Dog,” “Misty Mountain Hop” and, of course, “Stairway to Heaven.” The deluxe edition will include unreleased versions of every song heard on the original album including alternate mixes of “Misty Mountain Hop” and “Four Sticks,” mixes of “The Battle Of Evermore” and “Going To California” with extra guitar and mandolin, and an alternate version of “Stairway To Heaven.”
