The 40th anniversary reissue of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti will arrive Feb. 24, complete with a second disc of early, alternative takes of its songs. To get ready for the bounty of bonus material, the band has shared an alternate mix of the classic “Houses of the Holy.”
This rough mix version is noticeably different than the one that appeared on the 1975 double album. It’s a little shorter, the guitar is mixed differently, the bass is a little louder, and the vocals a little more raw. Check it out below:
In addition to all the Physical Graffiti demos and alternate takes, the reissue is also available in a variety of formats: a deluxe edition with companion audio, a deluxe vinyl edition, and a super deluxe box set, which features a 96-page book.
Back in 2014, Zep re-released its two previous classic albums — Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy — in similarly glamorous special editions.
