Led Zeppelin Vinyl bootlegs

Recommended Posts

Would anybody be able to tell me how much destroyer is worth?

Incomplete or not, thanks :)

It depends first on what is the condition, then which version you have. It may be worth of $$ if you had a luck.

Here is a quick snapshot of the final option. The next time I get the albums out, I will take some more pics.

I have none because I'm too young to get any vinyl boots. Everything except for my copy of 'In the Court of King James' is on a computer.

How do you mean that you are too young to get a vinyl boot. Even my 5 year old kid did purchase a vinyl record already. And there are more than enough vinyl bootlegs easily to be found on sites like Ebay.

In the late 70's/early 80's there was a legendary record store in downtown Tempe called Roads To Moscow.

One day I asked the owner if he had any more Zeppelin vinyl coming in and he began to look around nervously. He pulled out a milk crate full of boots and said "Don't tell anyone." That day I bought the original Destroyer.

Six months later I stop in the store and every rack, and I mean every one, had been magically transformed to bootlegs. Almost all by Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and the Stones. And some Beatles. I bought the first two Knebworths.

I took a break from buying boots, taken aback by the horrendous sound of the Knebworth lps. I was soon back on track after buying an amazing recording of one of the original The Wall performances. I do mean amazing.

Soon thereafter I bought My Brain Hurts, Bonzo's Birthday Party, Montreal '75 (with cover featuring HR Giger of Alien fame, along with a an image of (I assume) Giger reclining next to one of his images. Bizarre.), and Bonzo's Last Stand.

In The Light since 1972.

Trampled Under Foot. My life with Led Zeppelin.

I only have left Earls Court. Single LP from the 24th (I think). The one with Woodstock lifted from Dazed

I used to own quite a few but sold most to buy drugs in the 80's. I also sent the Red Devil version of "No Quarter" Earls Court to be auctioned for Jimmy Pages charity. It raised 50 english pounds

Those are some of my faves, too. The Montreal '75 is by the Phoenix Records guys in NSW in Australia...I also have their Seattle '73 release which also has a Giger cover.

Sue...you are never too young for vinyl. ;)

To clarify, I don't know where to buy any vinyl boots. And I have nothing to play them on. Edited by Sue Dounim

Ebay. I've picked up a few on there for relatively good prices, from about $10-25. If you spend some time looking for them, waiting for the right auction, you can get a good deal. The few that I have found in a record store were priced around $50 for mudslide, and $120 for half of Badgeholders.

Anyone have any good tips for Sue to find a record player (see her post #34)? Ebay also? I think I've seen posts here and there about people finding record players at yard(garage) sales.

I think FBHO, Blueberry Hill, Mudslide, and 1971/09/14 are the only shows I would get on vinyl.

I've got Mudslide, Blueberry Hill (one of the many versions), BBC Sessions, and V 1/2 (Seattle 1973-07-17) and they are all pretty good, with Mudslide probably being my favorite.

As far as finding a record player...you can buy one off of ebay but you have to be careful. Some sellers do not know how to ship a turntable and it ends up getting destroyed in the mail. Not all sellers are incompetent though. Yard/Garage/Estate sales would be the best option to find a working one. Chances are they might also have an amp with a phono stage (which you will need) or whole stereo unit. Thrift store ones are usually missing the counter weight, cartridge/stylus, or need a new belt.

It isn't too hard to find one cheap, and they are generally pretty easy to get set up and running

I don't own any vinyl boots, but I almost bought a copy of Blueberry Hill (not sure which label/if it had one) at a flea-market. The guy wanted something like $40 for it.

I bought a new Pioneer deck last year. It is great and plugs straight into the amp so no need for a pre amp. Amazon sold it and it cost be @ 100 quid

I have Last Lead.. only one other person I ever heard of has this also. I bought it from a milk crate at the market in my teens. the guy told me I am very lucky and it is special.. In my teens my sister let idiots into my room. I think I had two bootlegs.. one got stolen and I knew who it was and went to his house with my bicycle to cry to his nasty dad who treated me like shit and would not let me look and I had to guess what was stolen.. it took me years even to this day I remember albums I had and i get mad...music lover... but Last Lead.. he did not touch because it was maybe not have been obovious who it was to the idiot. Still wondering why I can never find this anywhere would give it to Jimmy Page if he wants it. I had no idea what it was..just felt special. I must have only listened to it twice in my life.
