I guess your definition of rarity is different than mine....also I think those are grey area reissues anyways, although I am sure they are interesting.

I agree as well.

Those records are counterfeit items (not official at all) and I can't consider them rarities because they are really common and made in the last two / three years.

Weird, probably, not rarity.

About your question, I think there are at least a couple of threads about it with pictures and some really interesting / rare item.

Rock'n'roll ...........!

I have rare mp3's, but not records. I have clips of Led Zeppelin in 1968, before Gonzaga. They where is Denmark, or Sweden and had just been starting to be called Led Zeppelin rather than the New Yardbirds.

OK I'll bite, are these video clips or audio clips? Before Gonzaga you say, WOW! That is rare...can you share with the rest of us?

Those early days of being a collector..not yet aware of what there is left to discover...under the spell..the quest. My hands used to shake when I went to the record conventions back in the 80's.

I'm not certain if these would qualify as rarities under your definition,but off the top of my head here are a few things that exist or are rumored to exist:

Audio from just about every show from as far back as 69. I would estimate that half of every show they performed has been recorded in one form or another.

An 11 CD set of out-takes,rehearsals and alternate versions from every album.

Video of the band recording Zep II in the studio.

Video from the 1970 tour-part of the rumored documentary complied by the band.

Video from various shows from 69 to 80.

2 left over tracks from Zep IV titled " Lost in Space" & "St. Tristan's Sword"

That's it off the top of my head. There is tons more out there...and lots more rumored to be hoarded.

Most definitely. These 2 items are the Holy Grails of all Holy Grails. The Zep II video was rumored to be circulating within certain circles recently.

The 2 tracks from Zep IV have only been mentioned in one of Dave Lewis' books. They must be locked up in a vault somewhere.

And I can see Jimmy guarding that vault very closely, but can you blame him? I can't, I would most likely be staffing the Royal Guards from Buckingham Palace!!!

I've heard rumors of these 2 tracks before, but didn't realize they were left over from LedZep IV. I do find it hard to believe considering they released some rare stuff (at the time) on Box Set I and then later on the BBC Sessions and it has yet to surface on bootlegs (at least the ones I know about), considering the numerous "Outtake" boots available.

With that being said, "Sugar Mama" hasn't been officially released (too bad because it's a great track) so maybe Jimmy has these 2 tracks locked in the vault. If so, I hoping for a release of that, or hell, anything else.

Yes,these 2 tracks are mentioned within Dave Lewis' last book. If anybody would know of their existence,it would be him.

There is also the unfinished track called "Fire" which has an ascending Oriental riff which I believe may be an alternate title from the jam "Say You're Gonna Leave Me" heard on some of those rehearsal boots. Definitely is a song I wish they completed and released.

Yeah, or the Knights Templar. I've never heard of the Zep II studio video before,

but I can honestly say that I'd do all kinds of bad things in order to have it.

The very first press of the first album released in Chile (South America) in 1970 had an UNIQUE different cover, red Atlantic label, it was MONO (curiously the cover it's the same of the Stereo press and the Matrix number is ST-A 681461 which proves it should have been Stereo!!!), the time of the song "Black mountain side" is listed 3:06 but it's really 2:06. Track list is in Spanish but translated to English. The song "You shook me" was written "You shoock me" in the back cover. But the most incredible fact is the name of the band was misspressed in the label: LED SEPPELIN!!! No more than 300 copies of this very first press were released!!! In the case one of you is interested in this rarity, I got 2 copies in excellent condition. I could trade it for a copy of the "turquoise" Atlantic press or I could sell it...

That is actually a free single included with the November 1989 issue of Sound & Vision, an Italian music magazine. Led Zeppelin is on the front cover. The copyright laws in Italy are convoluted and it led to

quite a few semi-legitimate "bootlegs" at the time. I have a copy of the magazine and single in storage.

Early to mid 1980s vinyl bootlegs. They are normally worth $25 to $40 if in excellent to mint condition.
