Atlantic Records/RhinoAs the June 3 release date approaches for the deluxe reissues of Led Zeppelin's first three albums, the band continues to roll out teaser videos offering fans a preview of the unreleased material included on the expanded packages. The latest clip features a rough mix of the classic tune "Whole Lotta Love," which is among the eight tracks appearing on the bonus "companion audio" disc included with the deluxe and super deluxe versions of Led Zeppelin II.
The five-minute video contains a montage of archival footage from various Led Zeppelin performances. The track itself is missing the famous "reverse echo segment" in which Robert Plant sings "Way down inside/ woman you need…," as well as the blazing riffs guitarist Jimmy Page delivers during the song's break.
In a statement about the "Whole Lotta Love" rough mix, Page notes that it's "the mix down from the night that we recorded it, so it doesn't have any of the overdubs that everyone will be familiar with, because when they hear this they'll think, 'Oh yeah, that's the original' and all of a sudden they'll go 'No, it's not.'"
Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, says of the track, "'Whole Lotta Love' must have been very early on its life, so it probably hadn't developed into the juggernaut that it became in later years. But it's fresher, I think."
