  1. I admit I don't know much about the British recording industry, but there certainly had to be more than one pressing plant. I do know in the US, when a major act (for example...Led Zeppelin) put out a new record, Labels would contract work out to any pressing plant they could to meet demand. I have been told that a significant amount of the initial press run for PG came from Germany.
  2. I doubt the 'free sample' theory - they wouldn't use a different set of plates for that sort of thing. It is likely something uninteresting like a reference to a specific pressing plant. http://www.stevehoffman.tv/ is the place to go to get the answer.

    zep collection for sale

    I see you are in Australia. Your best bet would be to blow them out in a massive ebay listing. If you have never sold online before and don't want to start, Vicious Sloth seems to be the biggest player down under I am aware of - they may be willing to do a consignment for you. I don't think this site has a problem if you listed what you have with prices (as long as they are not bootlegs).
  5. Those both look legitimate. The 'Super Savers' sticker indicates a budget rerelease but the label and catalog number are the same as the original.

    17 Years Ago Today

    'Kashmir' has been a long-time favorite for rap acts to desecrate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-PxCWwu5kQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABPOpbxEuWk

    Cover for In Through the Outdoor

    I guess I wasn't clear enough. The guy burning the Dear John letter is the only guy in every single one of the six cover pictures.

    Cover for In Through the Outdoor

    There is only one guy on every cover...
  9. The arguments for I and III are strong, and we can speculate how important ITTOD would have been if the band continued, but the fourth record was the one that skyrocketed the band from being big to gargantuan...
  10. One thing I've found on Ebay is anything called 'vintage' in the heading never is. This is an obviously brand new shirt and the seller has got one gullible potential buyer about to over pay by $270: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-VERY-RARE-LED-ZEPPELIN-SHOWCO-SOUND-1973-TOUR-T-SHIRT-/231508794772?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35e6ffdd94
  11. 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You' would also fit the (vague) description.
  12. I suspect a mint copy of the Ampex poster is nearly impossible to find - all the ones I've seen have been folded.

    Question about "The Can" bootleg set

    $1000 is the high mark; $600 is a more realistic value: http://collectorsfrenzy.com/search?q=zeppelin+the+can&search-button= http://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Led-Zeppelin-The-Can/release/5742942

    If you are interested in vinyl bootlegs look for copies of Robert Godwin's Collectors' guides. Fortunately for you new guys getting into collecting bootlegs, the Ebay price bubble has burst and there are a lot of nice packages that are now very reasonably priced. If you are not sure if something is a bargain or not, you can certainly send me or Dark Lord a private message and ask.
  15. Looks like the demand has gone down lately... http://collectorsfrenzy.com/search?q=led+hmv&search-button= http://www.popsike.com/php/quicksearch.php?pagenum=1&searchtext=led+hmv&incldescr=&sortord=ddate&thumbs=&currsel= I would still think one in mint condition with a low number (under 500) could still possibly get a couple hundred.
  16. You says it's vinyl in the heading and CD in the post, but either way they are in the $100-200 range.
  17. You have to be careful with Quad LPs because there were three different versions that were incompatible with each other. The easiest option is to find a Quad 8-track deck, orbetter yet, a reel-to-reel (though quad reels are extremely rare).

    Shows On eBay

    Ebay doesn't actually police this sort of thing - they have a way for 'verified rights owners' to send a complaint, which then gets the listing removed with no questions asked. In the last couple of years it seems Atlantic Records decided to stop scrutinizing ebay for bootlegs, so the floodgates have definitely opened lately.

    How Can Musicians Allow This To Happen to Themselves?

    So... for all intents and purposes he is from a band called nickelback.
  20. I am surprised how many people think this bootleg release is legitimate; here is a current Ebay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LED-ZEPPELIN-BBC-TRANSCRIPTION-DBL-LP-STOKE-1973-INSERT-NEAR-MINT-/191415495459?pt=UK_Records&hash=item2c9140ab23 Of course, it is two loonies fighting out but their feedback numbers show they ought to know better. There are also arguments on Discogs about this, with the people arguing that it's 'official' obviously being sellers wanting to maintain the inflated values. I was wondering if anyone here knows more about the origin of this. I have not seen itmentioned in any guidebook and always assumed it was released in the mid to late 90's. ?
  21. That is right about the time and price I got my copy, from a seller in Italy whose Ebay store had nothing but new bootlegs.

    Super Deluxe vinyl defect(s)?

    The Object Promo

    Apparently now $3000 is the going rate for these... http://www.ebay.com/itm/261640405396?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  24. I don't have a copy handy, but it's possible the marked-out bit is 'printed in the USA'. You say the printing isn't good - is the cover closer to a heavy construction-paper rather than cardboard? Also, check the disc surface; if there are flaws like dimples in the vinyl then you can be pretty certain it's from Zimbabwe. Also, there are are several other sub-Saharan countries that pressed vinyl; Mozambique and Angola have Led Zeppelin releases. I'm not sure if any of the other countries pessed anything from Western artists. Nigeria, Senegal, Madagascar, and Ghana all have prolific music industries. Ethiopia and Zambia have put out records, all of which seem to be very collectable.
