Led Zeppelin fans, you may want to brace yourselves. Details are finally out for the upcoming reissues of the legendary hard rock band’s last three studio albums: 1976’s Presence, 1979’s In Through The Out Door, and 1982’s Coda. Remastered by the group’s guitarist Jimmy Page and accompanied by some special bonus offerings, they’ll be coming out July 31.

Fans certainly have a lot of options with the reissued albums. Folks who simply want to enjoy the remastered songs will be able to purchase them as single CDs or 180-gram vinyl LPs. But for those who want a little more, they’ll also be coming out in expanded deluxe CD and vinyl versions with extra discs featuring never before released bonus tracks.

Super deluxe edition box sets for each album with special hard-bound books containing previously unseen photos and memorabilia will also be available for purchase. To spark the interest of collectors, the first 30,000 of these sets will be individually numbered. Remastered songs and companion audio will also be available for digital download.

Led Zeppelin connoisseurs should be especially excited to get their hands on the new bonus offerings. Presence‘s companion disc will include five unreleased session reference mixes and alternate takes on “For Your Life,” “Achilles Last Stand,” and “Royal Orleans,” as well as a never released instrumental called “10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod).”

Released in 1979, Zeppelin’s In Through The Out Door album is famous for the classic songs “Fool In The Rain,” and “All My Love.” Fans who get a hold of the deluxe version will get a chance to listen to unreleased rough mixes from the album’s original track lineup, as well as early proto-versions of songs with working titles like “The Hook” (“All My Love”), “The Epic” (“Carouselambra”), and “Blot” (“I’m Gonna Crawl”).

The deluxe version of Coda will come with not one, but two companion discs. They’ll be filled to the brim with musical treats like a never officially released recording of “Sugar Mama” from their 1968 self-titled album recordings at Olympic Studios and the rare unreleased instrumental “St. Tristan’s Sword” from 1970’s Led Zeppelin III studio sessions.

For the first time ever, listeners will also be able to enjoy performances recorded during a 1972 trip to India of Robert Plant and Jimmy Page accompanied by the Bombay Orchestra playing reworked versions of “Friends” and “Four Sticks.” The Coda bonus discs will also have an early recording of “When the Levee Breaks” and an instrumental of “Poor Tom” from 1970.

Preorders for these reissues are available now through Led Zeppelin’s website.
