    Looking for rare poster

    One just sold at auction for $11, 000... http://www.rrauction.com/past_auction_item.cfm?ID=3341832
  2. So Monarch pressings are considered superior to the others?
  3. I saw that too in a couple of threads there, but it makes no sense why a record company would manufacture a separate plate for a promo copy of a record. It is much more likely it's a reference to the pressing plant or the initials of the mastering technician.
  4. You need to post a pic.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    Roger Taylor at Headley Grange

    1981 isn't that far back!

    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).
  9. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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
  15. 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You' would also fit the (vague) description.
  16. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. You says it's vinyl in the heading and CD in the post, but either way they are in the $100-200 range.
  21. 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.
