Extremely rare 1969 UK 9-track first issue stereo LP with ‘Superhype’ publishing credit on the labels, legendary fully laminated sleeve with turquoise lettering. The matrix numbers are 588171 A//1 & 588171 B//1 and are not scratched out, indicating that this is the very, very first pressing. This copy remains in wonderful condition.
This highly sought after first pressing of the classic debut Led Zeppelin album was available for a very short time before the sleeve was replaced with the orange lettered design. The first orange sleeves retained the ‘Uptight An’ Outtasight’ Atlantic Appreciation Society flash on the back, although this was soon replaced too. The first orange sleeve copies contained either the unscratched matrix vinyl or the slightly later scratched out matrix vinyl that continued for the rest of the plum & red label presses. This is the very first turquoise lettered sleeve with matching unscratched matrix vinyl & period Polygram poly lined inner.
