On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by Led Zeppelin called "Led Zeppelin" and is an ORIGINAL1969 UK1st Pressing on the 1st Press Red/Maroon (Plum) Atlantic label!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS WASLED ZEPPELIN'S FIRST & RARESTLP EVER - AND VIRTUALLY NEVER TURNS UP FOR SALE!!!! JUST TRY AND FIND ANOTHER ONE!!!! IT ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LPs ON THE ATLANTIC LABEL - AND IS INCREDIBLY HARD TO FIND TODAY!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LP ESPECIALLY RARE - IS THATITIS THE ULTRA RARE 1ST PRESSING OF THIS LEGENDARY LP - WITH 'TURQUOISE LETTERING' ON THE COVER FRONT AND 'SUPERHYPE' CREDIT ON THE RECORD LABELS!!!! ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL OF THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS ONLY - EVER HAD THIS ULTRA RARE 'TURQUOISE' SLEEVE LETTERING - BEFORE IT WAS IMMEDIATELY CHANGED TO THE COMMON 'ORANGE LETTERED' COVERS THAT FOLLOWED!!!! AND THE LABEL CREDITS WERE ALSO LATER CHANGED FROM 'SUPERHYPE' TO 'WARNER BROS'!!!! BUT WHAT MAKES THIS LPREALLY SPECIAL IS THAT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE - WITH DIFFERENT (& EARLIEST POSSIBLE!) MATRIX ENDINGS!!!! AND THIS IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON THIS LP -ANDMAKES IT THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST LED ZEPPELIN LP EVER MADE!!!! WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL OF 'TURQUOISE' 1ST PRESSINGSONLY - WERE EVER PRESSED WITH UNCORRECTED 1ST PRESS MATRIXES AND THESE WERE IMMEDIATELY CHANGED PRIOR TO RELEASE!!!! ALL LATER 'TURQUOISE' 1ST PRESSINGS (AND ALL THE 'ORANGE LETTERED' PRESSINGS THAT FOLLOWED!)HAVE AN EXTRA 'ETCHED' NUMBER '8' ADDED TO THE MATRIXES AND SHOW A LATER PRESSING!!!! IN FACT, VIRTUALLY EVERY PRESSING OF THIS LP HAS THIS 'EXTRA8' ETCHED ON THE MATRIXES - (EVEN MOST OF THE 'TURQUOISE' 1ST PRESSINGS!) AND IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ONE OF THE 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESSINGS WITH UNCORRECTED 1ST PRESS MATRIXES LIKE THIS ONE HAS!!!! SO DONT UNDERESTIMATE THE SERIOUS RARITY OF THIS LP!!!! BECAUSE, NOT ONLY IS IT THE ULTRA RARE 1ST PRESSING WITH 'TURQUOISE LETTERING' ON THE COVER FRONT AND 'SUPERHYPE' CREDIT ON THE LABELS - BUT IT IS THE 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESSING EVER MADE, WITH INCREDIBLY RARE UNCORRECTED MATRIXES!!!! SO THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT AT ALL - THAT THIS IS THE 'EARLIEST'AND RAREST 1ST PRESSING OF THIS AMAZING LP THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET!!!!

AND THIS LP IS A VERY SOLID EXAMPLE INDEED!!!! AND ALTHOUGH IT ISNT MINT - IT IS STILL A VERY DECENT EXAMPLE THAT PLAYS WELL (I PLAYED IT END TO END JUST NOW!), WITH A VERY BRIGHT & SHINY RECORD, NO STRUCTURAL DEFECTS TO THE COVER, AND IS STILL VERY VERY PRESENTABLE INDEED!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THISIS THE ORIGINAL1969 UK 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSING ON THE'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS RED/MAROON (PLUM) ATLANTIC LABEL, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS'SUPERHYPE' CREDITS ON THE LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS INNER SLEEVE, 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESS 'UNCORRECTED' 1ST PRESS '588171 A//1' & '588171B//1' MATRIX ENDINGS,AND 'EARLIEST' 1STPRESS 'TURQUOISE LETTERED' FULLYLAMINATED COVER!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND LIKE THIS - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!! This is the ORIGINAL UK Atlantic 1st Pressing from 1969 and is SERIOUSLY rare in EVERY respect!!!! The record is pressed on THICK quality vinyl!!!! The Cat. No is 588 171 on the ORIGINAL 1st Press Red/Maroon Atlantic labels (see picture) and is a UK Stereo 1st Pressing (there were NO Monos!)!!!!

The record labels are in SUPERB condition (see pictures) with NO wear, only 1 almost INVISIBLE residue trace (this looks removeable and is almost IMPOSSIBLE to notice - see pictures!), NO writing and only a few VERY light spindle marks!!!! The vinyl is in GREAT condition - and is still bright & shiny and plays WELL!!!! Most of these 60s LPs had been to a lot of wild parties and are usually found totally worn out, and almost unplayable. This one is NOT and has NO nasty deep feelable scratches, NO nasty concentric marks, only a few lighthairlines,only 3 or 4 light scufflines (NON sounding!), only 2 or 3 TINY surface marks, and only a VERY few of the lightest paper scuffs only visible under light!!!! THE RECORD STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL 'JUST PRESSED' LOOK!!!! It is also great to find that the playing of the record is as STUNNING as the visual!!!! It plays with NO skips, only a few VERY light clicks, NO jumps, NO sticks,barely ANY crackle AT ALL, and only some slight background sound on the run on grooves & gaps - NOT in the music AT ALL!!!! The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear and barely ANY distortion AT ALL (virtually NONE!)!!!! The record must MEGA STRICTLY grade Good+ (PROPERLY graded, NOT trashed!) if not better - and is still a VERY bright & shiny record indeed!!!! Most people I certain would grade it higher still - but I prefer to be MEGA STRICT to avoid any disappointment!!!! Essentially it is still a VERY decent record indeed - that plays WELL (I know - because I just played it end to end just now!)!!!! Believe me this record is NOT overgraded in ANY way!!!! I use STRICT RC grading standards - it is not in my interest not to!!!! Brillant!!!! The record also comes in its ORIGINAL 1st Press inner sleeve which is in BRILLIANT condition!!!! The ORIGINAL 1st Press 'Turquoise Lettered'FULLY LaminatedCover is still a very VERY solid example indeed, and although it is not MINT, it has NO splits (ALL edges are 100% solid!), NO rips, NO tears, is 100% structurally sound, and is still a VERY presentable example indeed!!!! The cover has NO edge wear, NO spinal wear (apart from a few TINY creases!), NO nasty sticker residue marks,NO yellowing, a small area of laminate loss (with a clear residue trace here too) in the top right corner, some general uneveness to the cover (see pictures), only a MEGA thin line of laminate lifting along the spinal edge, VERY shiny laminate, some rippling to the opening edges, only slight corner wear (with some 'tipping in' to the lower corner tips), some faint stain traces below the 'Zeppelin', NO annotations, and NO writing!!!! There is also NO nasty brown creases on this cover AT ALL (most do!)!!!! The opening edge is still VERY nice and straight with barely ANY feathering AT ALL!!!!Thelaminated back of the coverlike the front has NO grubbyness, a small stain trace to the top right (and a tiny trace on the upper spine), only 1 small indentation mark to the left of John Bonham, and NO writing - though there is some slight discolouration along the lower opening edge. So although this cover isnt MINT - it is still VERY solid and useable, and so very VERY hard to find now!!!! Even so - I will grade very VERY strictly indeed to avoid ANY disappointment (or returns!), and grade the cover Fair+ (PROPERLY and STRICTLYgraded!) if not better - even though this cover is very VERY solid indeed, and has NO structural defects AT ALL!!!! Andto my mind (especially the ALL important Turquoise Cover front!) it is still a VERY decent example and certainly VERY worthy of consideration!!!! WITH THIS LP NOW REGULARLY SELLING FOR OVER £2000+ NOW (AND THE RECORD PRICE BEING £3600+!), THIS IS SURELY AN EXTREMELY RARE CHANCE FOR SOMEONE TO OWN THIS INCREDIBLE LP AT A CHEAPER PRICE THAN THE HUGE FORTUNE REQUIRED TO OWN A MINT COPY!!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND AS AN 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESSING (WITH 'EARLIEST' TURQUOISE COVER, 'EARLIEST' 'SUPERHYPE' LABELS & 'EARLIEST' UNCORRECTED MATRIXES) - SO DONT MISS OUT ON THISAMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!!

MY POSTAGE UNDERCHARGE GUARANTEE TO ALL BUYERS (I always undercharge on postage!):- Due to UK Royal Mail's obscene price increases this year - I have had no choice but to increase postage charges a little. Until this year - I had kept them exactly the same since I joined ebay back in 2002. However this years price increases have been so obscene, that I have had no choice but to increase my postage charges for the first time ever. However PLEASE NOTE - my absolute 100% guarantee to you as a buyer - is that I will ALWAYS undercharge postage on everything I send out. Even after the increases, I am still charging you the buyer LESS than I am being charged myself. On each package I send out - the price is clearly stated on the front of the package (please check it when you recieve it!). I also do NOT charge for packaging costs - ONLY for postal costs! And should you find that I have overcharged you postage in ANY way - I will refund DOUBLE the difference. THAT IS MY 100% POSTAL GUARANTEE FOR EACH AND EVERY BUYER! No buyer EVER deserves to be overcharged on postage - and on my listings, I'll make sure they are ALWAYS undercharged. Any questions - please ask!
