I have a copy A4 and B1, with "for Mary" on side A runout and Pecko on side B. There is no text on side A in the green part but there is on side 2. Very strange, any ideas ,please.

I have a copy with  TGP and SRC in the runouts and the labels have "ST-A-732783 AR". I can't find a single match in the db. Seems strange for something that seems pretty common in most situations.

Somebody knows what year is this release? 70s, 80s, 90s ?? And the quality of this...

The mighty Zeppelin abandoned the blues/folk-tinged hard rock of Led Zeppelin III and IV and embarked in a new direction altogether on Houses of the Holy. Robert Plant's trademark voice was much more polished and John Bonham introduced syncopated jazz, reggae and R&B beats reinventing the Zeppelin sound altogether. If that wasn't enough Jimmy Page brought the heavy, parked the blues and John Paul Jones layered the majority of the tracks with piano and organ fills. From the opener, 'The Song Remains The Same' right through until the closer 'The Ocean', the album showcases a group in its prime, a tour de force that had no equal back in 1973. Houses of the Holy represents the best of Led Zeppelin and forged a sound that would be FM staples for the next few decades with each song taking a life of its own and finding its way onto the airwaves. 'No Quarter' to this very day is considered as the mighty Zeppelin at their very best.

If that artwork was implying 'childhood's end' .. where's the space ship? It looks like a typical earth bound sacrifice to Molech.. and we all know Page was totally involved in the dark side.

My Cat# is SD 7208 - # ST-A-712285-MO/ ST-A-712286-MO on the label. "Pecko Duck/Porky" etchings. Am I missing this version listed?

I am looking for more information regarding this version - http://www.discogs.com/history?release=4613288#latest

I am currently deciding on getting a copy of this version with "A4 FOR MARY" and "B1 PECKO" matrix runouts in very very nice condition, but would be very interested in where it fits into the chronology.

Cheers,
Dylan

Hi just picked up one of these LP's, all the info matches except for the runout on side A, which reads K50014 A3 STERLING RL
Does anyone know if this is a variation of this pressing or should I be listing it under a different release?
Many thanks
Greg

Hi. Does anyone know when they stopped putting the paper strip around the gatefold cover of Houses of the Holy, and, for that matter, when the gatefold cover was also elimanated? Thank you! --Keith, New York City

I bought the US single disc release of the 2014 Houses of the Holy remaster but I don't see a listing here for it.
