Worldcrunch Pick

A never-before-released Led Zeppelin instrumental has surfaced online this week. The track, simply called "La La," was recorded in 1969 and starts with an interesting mix of gospel organ, savage drumming, acoustic guitar, followed by the classic Jones-Bonham groove and Page's wild soloing. The four-minute "La La" will be part of a series of reissues of the British band's albums, which is set to start on June 3 with new versions of "Led Zeppelin" I, II and III. Hopefully, no one will sue them for playing any of the following chords: C, D, E, F, G, A or B.
