Have the Pecko 'A' side variant.
Pecko Duck 'B' side. White inner sleeve.

Supposedly the rare version.
Possibly, from UK stampers.
Read this tidbit, but not verified.

The million dollar question...
How does it sound?

This record sounds fantastic!
Excellent seperation. Nice tonality on the instruments. Good depth in the music.
Robert Plant's vocals, are clear and forward.

Everything is enjoyable on Led Zeppelin IV.
I like all of their releases. This is one of my favorites! Have a few versions. If you should have a cool, unneeded extra. Maybe send it my way. Always up for some comparisons.

Alright. Let's look at it a bit...

Stairway to Heaven contains a richness.
The quality of the Jimmy Page's guitars and Plant's vocals are sweet. John Bonham's drums and John Paul Jones' bass are well balanced. The finale does not get as wild, as some later IV offerings.
Everything is seemingly geared towards studio perfection. The goal is acheived.

Monarch pressings are excellent!
For sure Mate. Try one and see.

Cheers!!
