On offer here is a VERY rare LP (especially in this condition!!!!) by Led Zeppelin called "Led Zeppelin" and is an ORIGINAL 1969 UK 1st Pressing on the 1st Press Red/Maroon (Plum) Atlantic label!!! THIS LP IS SERIOUSLY RARE AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!! THIS WAS LED ZEPPELIN'S FIRST & RAREST LP 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 THAT IT IS 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 LP REALLY 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 - AND MAKES IT THE 'EARLIEST' & RAREST LED ZEPPELIN LP EVER MADE!!!! WHEN THIS LP WAS FIRST RELEASED ONLY AN ABSOLUTELY TINY HANDFUL OF 'TURQUOISE' 1ST PRESSINGS ONLY - WERE EVER PRESSED WITH UNCORRECTED 1ST PRESS MATRIXES (SEE PICTURES!) 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 'EXTRA 8' 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 AMAZINGLY RARE UNCORRECTED MATRIXES ASWELL!!!! 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!!!!
THIS LP IS EVEN RARER STILL - AS IT IS ALSO HAS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'TYPE 1' LABELS - WITH NO NUMBER ERRORS IN THE CREDITS!!!! ORIGINALLY IT WAS THOUGHT THAT THE MIS-NUMBERED COPIES WERE EARLIER, BUT AFTER EXAMINING MANY STAMPER NUMBERS FROM MANY DIFFERENT ISSUES - IT IS CLEAR THAT THE 'JEWEL MUSIC' NUMBER ERRORED COPIES WERE ACTUALLY LATER THAN THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESSINGS WITH THE CORRECT LABELS!!!! AND THIS SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE REALLY, AS ON LED IV THE 'FEATHER' ON THE LABELS CHANGES POSITION TWICE MID WAY THROUGH THE PRESSING RUN, AND THE TRACK 'MISTY MOUNTAIN HOP' CHANGES TO 'TOP' TOWARDS THE END OF THE 1ST PRESSING RUN OF THAT LP TOO. AND OF COURSE ON 'LED ZEPPELIN III' THE TRACK 'CELEBRATION DAY' IS ALSO CHANGED MID RUN. SO IT IS CLEAR THAT MID RUN CHANGES ON LED ZEPPELIN LPs ARE VERY COMMON INDEED. AND IT IS ALSO 100% CLEAR THAT THIS LP HAS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'TYPE 1' LABELS WITH THE CORRECT NUMBER ORDER ON THE CREDITS (LATER ONES DONT!)!!!! SO NOT ONLY DOES THIS LP HAS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS COVER & MATRIXES - BUT IT ALSO HAS THE 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS RECORD & 'TYPE 1' LABELS, PROVING THAT THIS RECORD IS COMPLETELY ORIGINAL TO THE COVER FROM 1969!!!!
NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS LP IS IN BRILLIANT CONDITION FOR ONCE!!!! FINDING ANY 'TURQUOISE' 1ST PRESSING IS INCREDIBLY HARD - BUT MOST 1ST PRESSINGS THAT TURN UP FOR SALE ARE ONLY AVERAGE AT BEST. SO FINDING A REALLY NICE ONE IN THIS CONDITION, IS VERY, VERY RARE INDEED!!!! JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURES!!!! THIS IS THE ORIGINAL 1969 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 'TYPE 1' LABELS, 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS INNER SLEEVE, 'EARLIEST POSSIBLE' 1ST PRESS 'UNCORRECTED' 1ST PRESS '588171 A//1' & '588171 B//1' MATRIX ENDINGS, AND 'EARLIEST' 1ST PRESS 'TURQUOISE LETTERED' FULLY LAMINATED COVER!!!!

The sound quality is simply SUPERB with NO groovewear and NO distortion either!!!! The record must grade Very Good++ if not better - and is a very VERY nice record indeed!!!!

PLEASE NOTE - Private feedback bidders must consult me first prior to bidding - due to previous problems regarding non-payment, and non-receipt. 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!
