Not to be confused with reproductions, which despite having turquoise lettering on the front, will not have the title or catalogue number on the spine. Reproductions might also have different colored vinyl and list "LZ-A" and "LZ-B" on the corresponding sides of the deadwax, rather than the catalogue number.

The 3rd pressing on green and orange label has a different catalogue number (K 40031) with Superhype Music/Jewel Music Publishing credits labels and also has orange lettering sleeve.

The 4th pressing on green and orange label has a different catalogue number (K 40031) with WEA on labels and also has orange lettering sleeve.

It is a complete myth that Led Zeppelin were ever called The New Yardbirds. The official name was The Yardbirds, then it became Led Zeppelin. The 'New' only came into it when certain promoters decided to make a big deal out of them being a new version of the band on gig posters, this being typical 1960's thinking (i.e 'new' equals 'exciting'). It was never officially part of the name and such references would've quickly disappeared had they continued under the Yardbirds moniker.

Got a turquoise copy of this with Goldrush in turquoise across the front in large letters- was this some kind of promotion?

How much would a UK 1st issue of this LP sell for if autographed by all the band ?
An Expert on BBC's Antiques Roadshow has just said 'about £500 each'.
I'm no expert but I think that's a little light ??
Yes, he'd all their records by the looks of it & all the Rolling Stones autographs too.
"£500 too..."

Hello
I have an edition of this record which seems to be almost the same as :
https://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Led-Zeppelin/release/6957893
Mine is French too, sleeve printed by offset, same number etched in run out, same price code on back sleeve, but with a B sticker on the U. Little differences on the label : there's "N°" behind 40031 and Chappell on Side One is written on top of SACEM, not under.
Seems to be more or less the same edition but my record is very heavy ( 180 g) .
Is it the same for the other edition??
Thanks a lot

Turquoise lettering anyone? Has to be some sort of mistake. an experiment deviating from the earlier US release of 12/20 Jan 1969, or a mix up regarding the films required for the offset litho presses. IT is not a rare edition, but difficult to find in top condition. Someone please ask Jimmy Page whilst he is talking to the media.

Is the misspelling of superhype on side one is only present in the 1st pressing variation? Because I bought the record yesterday and it does have that error, but the lettering seems a little darker than the pictures on discogs. And it seems weird that I would get it for 15euros when the record is selling for 850 here. Any info appreciated :)

I just found a sealed copy of this album. And the best thing about it is I got it for nothing. It was among a box of records I found at a rubbish dump shoved in the corner by hundreds of hub caps. The rest of the records were worth nothing. But this one. Even the plastic its sealed in isn't even scratched. Amazing. No way im selling this.

I am lucky enough to have one of the 1st pressings,so,as the owner of an electrical showroom,sold a few records he was happy to order up stuff,and he always ordered 2 copies..maybe some other sap would buy a copy..So..someone in Leighton Buzzard bought the other copy....for some reason he always managed to get stuff in quickly...I have also...a blue printed (Jimi on the left)copy of Electric Ladyland..which, when I picked it up,had been turned inside out,obviously to prevent an accidental glimpse of the enclosed filth..and just to be sure..a clothes peg pinching the ends closed.,in case any filthy female flesh was thinking of escaping, and contaminating young minds.....and again..someone else had the other copy..if I knew then etc....
