Anyone know a site for Zep matrix numbers?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a site that lists matrix numbers for Zeppelin albums? I’m primarily interested in UK releases but a site which includes overseas matrix info too would be even better.

Thanks in advance.

Try DISCOGS, this is the entry of the UK first pressing of LZII, for example.

1st Pressings have "Livin Lovin' Wreck" on label B2.
"Wreck" being later replaced with "Maid".
Inside cover B2 has already 'Maid' replacing 'Wreck' on label.
Note also the phrase on B2, "She's A Woman", later becomes "She's Just A Woman" on subsequent releases.

Further later pressings have A3 title changed as "Killing Floor" credited to "Burnett".

Matrix with A2 / B2
Some scarce PYE contract pressing exist with etch matrixes A B. No numbers after... Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II

The early gatefold unlaminated cover is in light brown color. Later copies have dark brown color.
Some copies could have panel inside gatefold glued upside down, see pic (this comes with vinyl that has runouts variant 5).
