living loving wreck on remastered vinyl led zeppelin 2

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

my vinyl copy of led zeppelin 2(remaster) says "living loving wreck(shes just a woman)" on the label. i know that the first pressings had that aswell, but the mistake was soon fixed. do the remasters have that as a tribute or do have a super rare copy? the title on the gatefold has the correct spelling.

I don't have the standalone vinyl, only the Super Deluxe box. I just checked mine, and it says "Maid" not "Wreck" on the label of both the original album and the companion disc.

That's very interesting! Perhaps they did it intentionally as an Easter Egg on a few copies. Are you 100% sure you don't have a bootleg/unofficial copy? I know Russian pressings of the reissues are all over the place and they have some small variations from the true official pressings.

If you could post the runout matrix info scratched into the runout groove of your LP, that would help. Thanks!

i got it from a big store in London quite recently. it has a light blue sticker that says "the classic album on 180g vinyl", "includes Whole Lotta Love and Ramble On" and "remastered by Jimmy Page". im gonna post pics soon.

Here it is:

Looks to be legit! Discogs has two entries for the single-LP (non-deluxe), European pressing of the Zep II 2014 reissue. One of them has Living Loving Maid on the label, and the other one has Living Loving Wreck. The two pressings appears to be identical in almost every other respect, except the etching in the runout groove for Side B on the Living Loving Maid one is BD 16357-01 B1, while the etching on the Living Loving Wreck one is BD 16357-01 B1 3Ḻ (no idea what that little line under the L is about). Also, the red and green labels have some slightly different catalogue-number info and copyright info on them.

There are two variations of the US/Canada pressing too, but while both of those also have slight variations on the labels, both of them say Living Loving Maid.

I have no idea how rare or common your version is, but very cool - nice pickup!

I think that's pretty cool indeed!

Anyone come across any other "Easter Eggs" in the reissues?

I don't have any of the box sets or reissues, but was curious about In Through The Outdoor. Does the sleeve change color when you apply water do it? That would be pretty cool if it did.

Only one way to find out! (Fills up pitcher of water)

I also have this very same version in my SuperDeluxe-boxset. It's EU-edition and I bought it on release. Can post a pic if anybody wants proof. 

I've bought also the 2 different individual-releases (normal and deluxe) but they don't have that "Wreck".

So, it's nice little thing and sort of easter egg to have in the big boxset.

Just received my new German pressing today and it saws Wreck instead of Maid.

The sound quality is much better than the American pressing and the vinyl feels like 180 gram while the American version is thinner.

The sound quality might indeed bet better on the EU version, but both the EU and North American versions are 180 gram.

The european pressings are manufactured by OPTIMAL/Germany, a pressing plant with a stellar reputation. The US pressings are manufactured by PALLAS/USA. This can explain possible differences in sound quality.
