Led Zeppelin/Led Zeppelin 1st album
As U are big expert of Led Zeppelin and your web-site is great and helps a lot, I would like to ask you also for another help or explanation about Led zeppelin 1st album:
I have quite strange copy of this album, (plum orange label with ´Warner Bros´) where the numbers 588171 are "thicker" and a little smaller (i.e. different font type) then you show above by this version of album.
Also on 1st side the matrix number 8 is "crossed", om 2-side the matrix numbers are uncrossed (uncorrected).
Did U ever meet with such an exemplar of this album?
Maybe to better understand me, I send you the photos.
I have more photos, if U want, but there is possible to attach only two.
Many thanx for your answer in advance and best regards,
I have seen them quite a few times, and it could be considered a desirable early pressing. As I recall, every copy also had A1/B1 tags in the matrix. These are sometimes referred to as the "crossed matrix" pressing or "MacNeill sleeve", in reference to the cover's printer. For means of comparison, here are a few other examples:
As you can see in the first link, it ended up selling for $155, but most of the time, the average selling price is closer to $100.
Hope this helps,
