Hear Led Zeppelin’s Previously Unreleased 1969 Instrumental, ‘La La’
By Shannon Carlin
Led Zeppelin is gearing up to release the remastered editions of three of their classic albums—1969′s Led Zeppelin, 1969′s Led Zeppelin II, and 1970′s Led Zeppelin III—on June 3, which are set to feature bonus material ranging from live versions and alternative takes of classic hits to early drafts of songs that never came to fruition.
In anticipation for the big release next week, the band has been treating fans to rare gems like new official music video for “Whole Lotta Love (Rough Mix with Vocal).” Yesterday (May 29) they dropped the previously unreleased instrumental “La La,” which will appear on one of the bonus discs with Led Zeppelin II.
The song is a rough mix that begins with a few melodic organs and ends with a bluesy psychedelic breakdown. There are no real vocals, but if you listen close you can hear Robert Plant wailing in the background.
