BEFORE THE WEST WAS WON: Bootleg?

Recommended Posts

So I'm at the record store picking up a Christmas present for a friend, and possibly getting a sneak peek at the "Celebration Day" vinyl...when I discover THIS in the Led Zeppelin vinyl section! Led Zeppelin "Before the West Was Won: Live at the Fillmore West". I'm thinking it's just another bootleg until I turn it over and see the official Swan Song logo!

It is from the Jan. 11, 1969 Fillmore West show and appears to be from the German Swan Song office. Is this legit or just a really well-made pirate? Is Led Zeppelin finally making some of their shows available in limited form? Here are the photos I snapped:

I can find no info on it at all, but I'm going to assume that it is a bootleg. It looks pretty cool though.

I put one on hold...I was already maxed out over my budget from the other stuff I was buying.

Sorry my camera phone couldn't take a clearer photo of the bottom print.

It's gotta be a boot. Even if the Swan Song logo is there, I think it's just a really well made unofficial release.

The price is listed at $18.98.....

That's a steal if I ever saw one. If that album was in a record store here, It would list for $35 or better. Especially on vinyl.

It's a boot. Nicely made though.

I have the boot "Persistence", which could easily pass for the real deal.

ways to spot this is not official product

1. looks like the version of How many more Times is the cut version from the boot, the wouldnt release that

2. The timings on side 1 are wrong, even if they switched them

3. there is no picture of JIMMY PAGE on the cover
