The British rockers will drop 'The Complete BBC sessions', a re-mastering of their original 'BBC Sessions' 1997 record, which will include eight unreleased recordings, three of which were from a lost session in 1969. 

A third disc on the updated album, which has been re-mastered with supervision from Jimmy Page, features the trio of forgotten tunes, 'I Can't Quit You Baby', 'You Shook Me' and the only recorded performance of 'Sunshine Woman'.

Jimmy Page - who formed the band, also made up of Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and the late John Bonham, in 1968 - told Guitar World: "'The BBC Sessions' show in graphic detail just how organic the group was. 

"Led Zeppelin was a band that would change things around substantially each time it played ... We were becoming tighter and tighter, to the point of telepathy."

Speaking to Mojo, Robert said: "The whole thing was very quaint: the politeness of the audience, the technicians fumbling about, proper hallowed low-key introductions. 

"Like there was some sort of holy moment about to occur."

The album also includes previously unreleased versions of songs 'Communication Breakdown' and 'What Is And What Should Never Be'. 

This news comes less than a month after the band were cleared of plagiarising the intro for their smash hit 'Stairway to Heaven'.

The legendary rockers were accused of stealing part of their classic rock song from Spirit's 'Taurus' but the jury in the lawsuit - brought by Michael Skidmore, a trustee for the late Spirit guitarist ` - found the band not guilty.

The group were accused of lifting the music from the 1968 instrumental track for their own song, which they co-wrote and released in 1971.

'The Complete BBC Sessions' is released on September 16.
