Notes

1st UK pressing on 'plum' label which is red/white/plum. Feather symbol on side 2 is inverted.
This label layout identifies the first pressing.
It is part of the first production batch of the UK red/plum Atlantic label for this title.
Same for labels versions 2, 3 and 4.

No mention of Superhype Music Inc.

Executive Producer credit for Peter Grant (which was removed in various ways from all subsequent pressings - see below).

Heavyweight unlaminated gatefold sleeve, printed and made in England.

Inner sleeve has lyrics to 'Stairway to Heaven' on one side and track titles and credits on the other. The first inner sleeves are dark gray with two foldback edges to the side. Interestingly, whilst Jimmy Page succeeded in having the Peter Grant credit removed from the labels, they were never removed from the inner sleeves.

There are currently 8 verified and known 'plum' label variants.

This release was commonly referred to as 'Led Zeppelin IV', to follow in sequence with their previous three releases, but no actual title appears on the release.

I have an album still in the shrink wrap that has a ZOSO sticker on the back that says Atlantic Recording Corporation, 75 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y. 10019 and also SD 19129 under the Atlantic logo. But on the front of the album there is yellow sticker that says Contains Stairway to Heaven SD 7208. Can anyone explain why there are two different catalog numbers on the album? Thanks,

"IV" is unequivocally the creative apex of Led Zeppelin's musical output, the culmination of their distinctively folksy, hippie stomp style of hard rock. Robert Plant's mystical lyrics are never more eerie and plausible than on each of the eight tracks herein, with both "Stairway to Heaven" and "When the Levee Breaks" being so propulsive and groundbreaking in terms of sound that both compositions implemented a muscular, metallic sonic prototype which in turn reconceptualized hard rock as we now know it.

Of course Led Zeppelin's visionary status and artistic momentum inevitably faltered after producing such a matchless work of traditionalist rock imbued with folk, blues and even funk; no band could ever live up to the seismic bombast and fortuity of this record, however, Led Zeppelin were one of the few acts to enter the 1980s with their credibility and reputation intact, which is testament to their artistic integrity and desire to be viewed as serious musicians rather than rock stars. I am of the belief that they achieved a level of respect and commercial success on a scale no other band has since, or perhaps ever will again.

Beyond the torrential riffs, thunderous drumming and soaring vocals, "IV" feels more epic in tonality, the rhythmic, pounding rock 'n' roll serving as the rhapsodic arrangement for soul-stirring apocalyptic poetry delivered with sheer credence by Robert Plant. "IV" is a musical milestone you must listen to at least once in order to fully appreciate its qualities and dynamics; an assured combination of genres constituting hard rock but sounding unlike anything you've ever heard before, this is a true example of classic rock and you owe it to yourself to let it wash over you.

having trouble finding my copy i just purchased.
I looked through every sd7208 and only found one close but without matrix info.
https://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Untitled/release/11594355
Label on vinyl has SD 7208 and below that is R112014A. R112014B on side two.
matrix is
R-112014-A 1 1-6 SRS (stamp) ST-A-112285-P (Then what looks like) ctap (on side 1)
The "ST-A-112285-P" is scratched out
"Mfd. for bmg direct marketing, inc" and the rest of that bit is stamped on the upper right of the back of the sleeve in the section above the tall building as in the link to the one above. I assume this is my version. Find it odd that none have ever been sold or listed as being sold for that version though. Any feedback? Thanks

Two things:

1) The closer your pressing is dated, the better it sounds.

2) If Led Zeppelin I sounded like an acid trip in Texas, their fourth album is at another level. In all honesty, I don't think they're a heavy metal band like I previously reckoned. Instead, they're just a band that loves to reinvent themselves--even though yes, their trademark hard rock sounds are featured here but their fourth album is more than just making you feel like you can put your mind to anything. I see it as a journey to a world I never been to but I'd be welcome. In fact, the closest thing that my imagination can concoct with is the very first Legend of Zelda game on the NES. Call me crazy but this album and that game just pair so well with each other. Maybe it had to do with those Celtic vibes. Whatever it is, I just can't stop listening to it. It's that amazing.

Some believe this album is 'untitled' & that it was intentionally left as such, but this just isn't true & as an artist an an intelligent person I find this offensive as I'm sure many do.
This album is Led Zeppelin (4, four, IV) by virtue of the fact that apart from being the fourth studio album the artist has used four symbols to 'say' as much. It is wrong to assume this album is untitled when this is it's title.

If it were writen in brail we wouldn't say it was untitled just because we couldn't read it? & if the four symbols were writen in a recognised way, 'F O U R' or '1 2 3 4' or even just four dots then people would accept it more readily, but it is offensive to the artist to not see the obvious. All alphabets started as pictoral symbols so why be prejudiced against these symbols just because they are not what we 'know'? However u write it, it is four & the only reason later versions had it printed on was because of this nonsense from those who didn't see the obvious.
