Notes

Label variant and Presswell press.

Released in a die-cut gatefold jacket, which features a rotating wheel in the front flap.

The inscriptions "Do What Thou Wilt" and "So Mote Be It" appear in the runouts, and can be found in numerous configurations - i.e. "Do What Thou Wilt" in the Side A runout and "So Mote Be It" in the Side B runout; "So Mote Be It" in the Side A runout and "Do What Thou Wilt" in the Side B runout; or both sayings in one or both runouts simultaneously.

A hand-etched triangle with a horizontal strike through it appears in each runout.

This version differs from other 1970 US releases (excluding club / promo versions) with the same cat# as follows:
Led Zeppelin III (Shorter runout consisting only of matrix)
Led Zeppelin III (Different label matrix suffix: MO)
Led Zeppelin III (No label matrix suffix)
Led Zeppelin III (Different label matrix suffix: LY)
Led Zeppelin III (Different label matrix suffix: LY)
Led Zeppelin III (Different label matrix suffix: RI)
Led Zeppelin III (Different label matrix suffix: DCE)

"There are some copies with both sayings." You mean one saying on one side and the other saying on the other, right? That's how mine (non-MO suffix) is. I read elsewhere that "Be It" later changed to "It Be" - no idea whether that is true. All the combos are very confusing.

Found a great forum which may explain about ATLANTIC / ATCO vinyl labels and deadwax - what do the codes mean?

Wanted to ask about the 1970 German release: http://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Led-Zeppelin-III/release/722691 I think I have one. Difference on mine is that it does not have a rotating wheel sleeve. But all the other items match up. Anyone know much about this version?

I have a copy of Led Zeppelin III and need some advice on which release I have.
Album information is as follows
Gatefold spine & front cover reads: SD 19128
Vinyl label reads: SD 7201
Above vinyl label SD 7201 reads: R104162A (side A), R104162B (side B)
Matrix run out side A: R-104162A
Matrix run out side B: R-104162B
Matrix run out side A: ST-A-702005-K (scratched out)
Matrix run out side B: ST-A-702006-K (scratched out)
also on both sides, on the run out reads: 1-1 as well as sf/atl

any help would be greatly appreciated. I have not come across any scratched out matrix numbers on any of my other albums.

On my copy on the label sticker, it reads ST-A-702005 LY. What does the LY mean? Thank you

First pressings have "Do What Thou Wilt" etched into the dead wax on Side One, "So Mote Be It" etched in the dead wax on Side Two.
