Rockers Led Zeppelin have given their fans a treat by releasing new recordings of Keys To The Highway and Whole Lotta Love months ahead of the reissue of the band's first three albums this summer (14). The songs will be included on the records, which will hit stores in June (14) and feature alternative versions of classics, works in progress and live performances. Guitarist Jimmy Page has spent over two years piecing the albums together, and he insists the time spent was valid because the material "deserves to be heard". He says, "I don't want to die and have somebody else do it. I'm authoritative about what was done in the first place." But frontman Robert Plant insists the new releases will not herald a reunion for the surviving members of Led Zep, who last performed together in London in December, 2007 to honour late music mogul Ahmet Ertegun. The singer insists there is "zero" chance of that happening. Asked for his opinion on a reunion, Page adds, "I'm sure people would love to hear it. I'm not the one to be asking, I don't sing."
