At the conclusion of last week's Led Zeppelin listening event at L'Olympia in Paris, a new video for "Whole Lotta Love" (Rough Mix With Vocal) was premiered following the onstage Q&A session with Jimmy Page. The video is a composite of several classic Led Zeppelin live performances, some well-known and others rarely seen, and can be viewed now at the following link: The "Rough Mix With Vocal" version of "Whole Lotta Love" is featured on the deluxe edition of Led Zeppelin II which is set for release on June 3, along with deluxe editions of the band's debut album and Led Zeppelin III.


John Paul Jones, Page and Robert Plant each commented on the companion audio version of "Whole Lotta Love."

Jones said: "'Whole Lotta Love' must have been very early on its life, so it probably hadn't developed into the juggernaut that it became in later years. But it's fresher, I think."

Page commented: "This version of 'Whole Lotta Love' is the mix down from the night that we recorded it, so it doesn't have any of the overdubs that everyone will be familiar with, because when they hear this they'll think, 'Oh yeah, that's the original' and all of a sudden they'll go 'No, it's not.'"

Plant added: "You can see how songs grow. There must have been five or six other takes of that, which are not present. So the shaping of these things is very interesting and you can hear with this particular version that we haven't quite reached the point yet, and that it's very, very close."
