  1. The question to ask is why was there a mono HOTH? Does anyone know of any mono edition of the fourth album?
  2. As mentioned earlier, there are no dedicated Mono mixes.
  3. I, II, III, and HOTH all have US mono promo issues.
  4. Looks like a paperback edition is coming out on November 1. Amazon link
  5. If you're looking only for CD, just stick to the new reissues.
  6. http://www.theonion.com/article/teen-who-just-discovered-led-zeppelin-starting-to--199
  7. The author is a woman, so I don't have a problem with her downgrading songs due to sexist lyrics. The annoying bit, besides the few obvious factual errors, is that the opening paragraph lauds Page's production, and then she bitches about the poor production of half the songs.
  8. I don't want to dignify this with a comment but I figured someone here was going to post this so might as well get it over with: http://www.msn.com/en-us/music/news/all-74-led-zeppelin-songs-ranked-from-worst-to-best/ar-AAdHKFc
  9. One just sold at auction for $11, 000... http://www.rrauction.com/past_auction_item.cfm?ID=3341832
  10. So Monarch pressings are considered superior to the others?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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).
  15. Those both look legitimate. The 'Super Savers' sticker indicates a budget rerelease but the label and catalog number are the same as the original.
  16. '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
  17. 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.
  18. 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...
  19. 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
  20. 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You' would also fit the (vague) description.
