I wonder if someone can help. I have a copy with the matrix's 558 198 A / B without numbers. These are etched not stamped. The song list features 'The Lemon Song' and also 'Livin' Lovin' Maid (She's A Woman)'. Clealy not the 'Wreck' version, but matrix suggests a very early pressing. Looking to sell it as was part of my fathers private collection, but want to know more about this release before I list it. Any info much appreciated.

So "Living Loving Maid" or "Livin' Lovin' Maid"? Which is it? It seems to be split down the middle within the listings here. Anymore have a number for Page or Plant and can ask them? Either way, (She's Just A Woman)!

Just want to say, if you get a RL copy of the album, don't worry TOO much on the condition. No joke, I got at the best a VG pressing of the album. It's got a few crackles and pops in the beginning of each side, but the music is SO LOUD it overpowers it all. If you get a good VG+ copy, you're set.

I can tell you it’s definitely not sunlight damage I can tell you this as the spine area that has the wrong colour is something that happened at the printers when these copies where made, it’s also sometimes extended to the top edge or border line, I noted it always the second pressing with A2 matrix without the living wreak mistake but your never see any after examples after the second pressing, personally I suspect needs it’s own placement.

Hello there,
Trying to get an ID on a version of this album. I think I've got this version: https://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Led-Zeppelin-II/release/8114882
Side One 3. is Killing Floor (Burnett) on label. and Lemon Song on the gatefold cover
Side Two 2. Livin' Lovin' Maid (She's Just a Woman) on the label Livin' Lovin' Maid (She's a Woman) on the gatefold cover

Has 588198 on the label (which is Red/Maroon) (P) 1969

But on the cover has a stick with K40037 Stereo over the Atlantic bit at the bottom, but label and cover track listing don't seem to match any of the K40037 version listed on here.

Can you help?
