Led Zeppelin Deluxe Editions Debut In Top 10

The Led Zeppelin reissue campaign is off to a prolific start as the deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III have each debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, charting at #7, #9, and #10, respectively. The albums also occupy the top three spots on the Billboard Catalog and Internet charts. 

Following their worldwide release, all three albums have seen similar success internationally, ranking in the top 20 in multiple countries including Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Japan (International), New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

The June 3rd release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin's first three albums launched an extensive reissue program of all nine of the band's studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin has opened the vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.
