What's in your Led Zeppelin collection?

Recommended Posts

I lucked out when I got my Zep puck - the ebay seller had a really vague description and he used a black background for the photo - I was the only bidder and got it for $10.

I've got all the albums on CD plus the mini-album boxed set.

I've got the DVD plus every version of TSRTS that exists.

But my pride and joy is my mp3 collection of bootlegs. I've got pretty much all of them. That collection is maybe my most treasured thing in the world.

I'm afraid my Led Zeppelin collection is limited to The Mothership compilation. I received Physical Graffiti as birthday present when I was 16, but I threw it away along with several other vinyl albums in 1987 when I was moving. I know, I know...dumb move on my part.

...I did admit a similar thing on a Queen forum and all hell broke loose

Not in my book. Unless you're a collector, I can't see the point of owning vinyl records if you don't have anything to play them on. Don't get me wrong. In many ways I preferred the sound of vinyl to CD's but my turntable gave up the ghost back in the 1980's and I'm not enough of a vinyl enthusiast to hunt down a turntable that still works.

I see they are selling many converter machines that you can transfer your album to CD. I am not aware how well these are for playing? At my mothers house I have a bunch of old vinyl records. One was the red vinyl of the Who Are You. I wish I could find my Beatles 65 album. Anyway, as far as LZ collectible's my concert stub is my best survivor. I will never know how I ever managed to keep that safe for all these years. A miracle really. I lost all my old newspapers including when Bowie was busted for weed here in Rochester and vowed to never return. He kept his promise. What a lame city this is. Its hard to believe LZ played here in 1968. If they had ever come back after IV was out, the building would have been ripped down. They would have sold the place out for a thousand years. So only 11 when they came here, I got to see them when I was 20 in '77. And to me, that was far better because they ahd all their best material out. The only thing I missed was In Through the Outdoor and Coda (but Coda doesn't count to many of us)

As I said in another thread, I have so much stuff... boxes FULL of vinyl, concert tour programs, books, tee-shirts, Plant autograph, books and mags from the 1970s, etc., etc. -- After holding onto it for 30+ years, I am selling it all. It's good to unburden :)

Thought I would post a couple more pics of some of my LZ rarities while I am on Christmas holidays. I have over 100 variations of the Led Zeppelin albums on vinyl, and all are slightly different in some aspect. Today I randomly selected some of my early Canadian pressings of the first 4 albums:

Led Zeppelin: original red Atlantic label. Still in the original shrink with price tag affixed.

Led Zeppelin II: original red Atlantic label.

Led Zeppelin III: Original red Atlantic label.

I also have a rare early Canadian pressing of the fourth album. This is the only one I have ever run across in 35 years of collecting. It is the original green and red Atlantic label, but: 1) the cover has the record slot on the inside, 2) the lantern star is purple and not yellow, and, 3) the rear cover has the track listing sticker printed right onto the card stock. This is not a sticker as was seen on the exterior shrink wrap; it is printed onto the cover.

Whoa, is does that IV have an actual Unipak sleeve?

Yes, it sure does. I have a few of them, but no others with the purple star nor the track listing sticker printed right on the cover.

I will say that my favorite item is my vinyl copy of Led Zeppelin III with the etched credo "Do What thou Wilt" on the side one run-out

and "So Mote Be It" on the side two run-out. I found the etchings years after I bought the copy and it changed my Life.

Hey Oleg, I'd like to get some specifics about your pic. I can see all your 45's the bottom shelves but I don't think they can all be CDs on the rest.

I tried to explain

Sorry for mistake, I have 70 US stock singles (I have counted images and there are 2 of them for one single)

I wanted to say thank you to Tony / LZ77 for giving me the chance to add another item to my JFK run. I finally added a frisbee to my collection! Thank you Tony! I just need the t-shirt but the odds of obtaining one are very slim.
