Notes

Atlantic red/white/plum labels.
℗ 1971

Of 8 known 'plum' label variants, this is the 8th. Specific to this label variant are:

1. 'Marketed by Polydor Records Limited' at 6 o'clock on labels.
2. 'Under license from Atlantic Recording Corp.' in white area under ATLANTIC on left side.
3. LED ZEPPELIN is printed above spindle hole
4. Catalogue number at 3 o'clock above circular Atlantic logo reads 'deluxe 2401012'
5. There is no Peter Grant credit, and song publishing credits are: Kinney Music Ltd./Superhype Music Inc.
6. Track B1 is credited on B-side label as "Misty Mountain Hop"

Sleeve is a gatefold, thick card with sealed left side edge when opened up to reveal 'The Hermit' drawing. Disc is housed in a grey card liner with credits on one side and the lyrics to 'Stairway to Heaven' on the other. Outer glue-tabs on the left and right sides of liner.
Importantly, although Jimmy Page had got all the 'Executive Producer Peter Grant' credits removed from the labels by this time, the liner still retains this credit, bottom left side.

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.

(Note# No tracktimings appear on the labels or sleeve)

In my copy - it must be version 8, as per all the definitions above, and comparison with other versions -, the matrix numbers are:

A side: 2401012 B//312 10
B side: 2401012 ** A//313 4

I'm pretty sure I have a v8 copy, however the matrix numbers don't match either of the two variants above. On my copy there are matrix A: 2401012** a/31216, matrix B: 2401012 b/3124. Is this another sub-variant?
