Led Zeppelin has posted a new official music video for “Whole Lotta Love (Rough Mix with Vocal),” one of the many tracks on the bonus disc that will accompany the deluxe and super-deluxe reissues of 1969’s Led Zeppelin II. That mix of “Whole Lotta Love” was one of the many bonus tracks that Jimmy Page premiered at a New York listening event earlier this month.

The version does indeed sound rough, and is missing Robert Plant‘s vocals in the chorus; as such, the track gives interesting insight into one of the most iconic hard rock songs of all time.

Led Zeppelin II‘s bonus disc is filled with different versions of the albums songs (along with one previously unreleased track, “La La”). In a recent interview with Radio.com, Page said his intent with the bonus discos is to give fans insight into the writing of Zeppelin’s songs. His aim was “to revisit all of the tapes that were done as alternate mixes or guide tracks, backing tracks or early stages to revisit all of those, because it’s true and faithful to the time when the album was recorded. So if you have a whole bulk of things for [1970's] Led Zeppelin III, it’s great because it’s a time capsule, that’s why it works, that’s why this thing has real substance to it. So if you go to the stuff for Physical Graffiti, it’s a time capsule for that.”
