Led Zeppelin are gearing up to release a whole lotta reissues — and to promote their archival campaign, they’ve shared an alternate version of their 1971 track “Black Dog.”

To a casual Zeppelin fan, there’s not a big difference from the original, but Zep heads will pick up on the nuanced guitar overdubs and vocal harmonies.

Additionally, Plant’s vocals have a more frenetic feel around the “oh-oh-oh” bit.

The alternate version comes from the band’s untitled fourth album (commonly referred to as IV) deluxe reissue ,which, according to a press release, “includes unreleased versions of every song appearing on the original album, including alternate mixes of ‘Misty Mountain Hop’ and ‘Four Sticks’, mixes of ‘The Battle Of Evermore’ and ‘Going To California’ heavy with guitar and mandolin, and the fabled, alternate version ‘Stairway To Heaven’, mixed at the Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles which lets fans hear one of the most revered songs of all time as they have never heard it before.”
