I am new to this so please bear with me but I need some advice on a Led Zep 1 LP we found in our loft and wondered if anyone was able to help please?
It has the orange lettering on the front cover with a grey stripe across the bottom, the reference number is 588171, the record has the plum/orange label which says on side one, '1, 2, 4, Warner Bros/ 7 Arts. 3. Jewel Music' and on side two, '1, 2, 3, 5. Superhype Music, 4, Jewel Music'
It also has corrected matrix numbers on both sides.
They are as follows:
Side One: 588171 (the second 8 is crossed out and another 8 is inscribed above it), followed by A//1 1 2 2 and then either a 3 or a 5 (we can't quite make it out!)
Side Two: 588171 (the second 8 is crossed out and another 8 is inscribed to the left of it), followed by B//1 1 1 3
The rear cover has the following in the bottom right hand corner, 'UPTIGHT AN' OUTASIGHT is the official Atlantic Appreciation Society at 17/19, Stratford Place, London, W.1.' followed by 'Under licence from Atlantic Recording Corp. USA. Manufactured by Polydor Records Ltd. London. Printed and made by MacNeill Press Ltd., London, S.E.1.'
I have been trying to research this all day as it belonged to my Dad who is sadly no longer with us and my Mum has decided she is now ready to sell it (along with a lot of his other LP's) as she no longer has a record player, we have found conflicting reports of details of rare copies, some saying about having Superhype Music on them and some saying about having Warner Bros on them but the only ones I have been able to find have had the same on either side, whereas our copy has Superhype on one side and Warner Bros on the other!
I'm really sorry for the long waffling post, but I would just like to make sure that if it IS worth something, she actually gets something for it rather than being ripped off somewhere!
Thank you all for your time,
