    I'm not sure if anyone else has already mentioned this, but the inner gatefold sleeve image is of Dunluce Castle, County Antrim.

          I have trouble deciding what I think about this pressing.

          I have the 1st variant and it seems pretty loud and hot. Inner groove distortion is quite evident on The Grunge and The Ocean is super sibillant and dirty sounding. Wonder if anyone else has had the same experience?

          However, this issue has unbelievable 3-dimensionality to the sound. Especially the drums, that just come at you with such amount of weight. Bonham's entrance on No Quarter feels startling.

          My copy has also some amount of surface noise, which makes me wonder if it might just be quite chewed up.

            I have a copy A4 and B1, with "for Mary" on side A runout and Pecko on side B. There is no text on side A in the green part but there is on side 2. Very strange, any ideas ,please.

              I have a copy with @tgP and SRC in the runouts and the labels have "ST-A-732783 AR". I can't find a single match in the db. Seems strange for something that seems pretty common in most situations.

                  The mighty Zeppelin abandoned the blues/folk-tinged hard rock of Led Zeppelin III and IV and embarked in a new direction altogether on Houses of the Holy. Robert Plant's trademark voice was much more polished and John Bonham introduced syncopated jazz, reggae and R&B beats reinventing the Zeppelin sound altogether. If that wasn't enough Jimmy Page brought the heavy, parked the blues and John Paul Jones layered the majority of the tracks with piano and organ fills. From the opener, 'The Song Remains The Same' right through until the closer 'The Ocean', the album showcases a group in its prime, a tour de force that had no equal back in 1973. Houses of the Holy represents the best of Led Zeppelin and forged a sound that would be FM staples for the next few decades with each song taking a life of its own and finding its way onto the airwaves. 'No Quarter' to this very day is considered as the mighty Zeppelin at their very best.

                    If that artwork was implying 'childhood's end' .. where's the space ship? It looks like a typical earth bound sacrifice to Molech.. and we all know Page was totally involved in the dark side.
