UP FOR AUCTION IS THE UK LP LED ZEPPLIN II
CAT NO: 588 198
LABEL: ATLANTIC PLUM RED
DATE : 1969
MATRIX: A2 B2
This is one of the better examples of this unlaminated sleeve I have seen. It retains it's shape and shows only minimal shelf ware and some very slight ring wear on the reverse. The spine is clearly readable but there is a scuff towards the bottom (see picture). It's the first press run of the light brown sleeve which it would have to be given the label error and matrix numbers. The only drawback is the first owners name on the inside cover of the sleeve (see picture). Apart from that, I would rate this as excellent.
Some very light surface marks in evidence on both sides of the record, but we are talking light. I can't see this record having been played many times at all. It retains a lovely black gloss and that is evident when I played the record back. All I can say is, wow! The very lightest of surface noise on intros and outros. I can honestly say it sounds brilliant.
Both are incredibly clean and bright and shine with the original plum/red Atlantic colours. Very faint spindle marks proving this record was hardly played. The only drawback is the 1st owners name in biro on side A. Apart from that, beautiful.
Here's your chance to own one of the rarest Led Zeppelin records ever to be released. It has everything
- 1st light brown cover
- Wreck misprint
- Lemon song credit
- earliest possible matrix and stampers
- all round excellent condition
