Reply to this topic Start new topic. AnalogJ and canonlon like this. I have a g Classic Records pressing bought new in I consider it below the others in sound quality. Search the forum.
There are plenty of threads that go into great detail on this subject. TLMusic , Mar 15, Location: Seattle. You could get ten different Porky etc. US pressings with different lacquer codes and hear ten slightly different results. Buy from Amazon. It sounds a lot more exciting than it is. The final instalment in an auspicious body of work. Looks great until you realise the first two tracks are live cuts with the audience erased and four of the others are outtakes from In Through The Out Door.
Zeppelin in their element, captured live at the peak of their pomp. Well, almost. A cheat? Whichever way you look at it, when In Through The Out Door was released in August the musical climate was plain wrong.
In the big wide world outside the closeted confines of Zep, disco, punk and new wave held sway. In rock circles, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were being superseded by a new breed of hero.
Eddie Van Halen was doing stuff with a guitar that had never been seen — let alone heard — before. Meanwhile his star-jumping jousting partner David Lee Roth was taking the Golden God template created by Plant to an entirely new level. Within Zeppelin trouble was brewing — as ever. Bonham and Page were both dealing with substance abuse issues while Plant, having dealt with serious injury incurred in a car accident, was still grieving having lost his son.
Two songs have no compositional input from Page whatsoever. And therein lies the rub. It has little of the dark guitar wizardry of other Zep releases. The album begins well enough with In The Evening , and the atmosphere of a steaming Moroccan souk is accurately evoked — typically Zep or should we say typically Plant.
Just as you feel as if the song could go on forever it simply… fades… away…. South Bound Saurez has a honky-tonk feel, and Page, again, dashes off a few notes and leaves the building. Bonham is the same: his familiar steamhammer style is superseded by a sly shuffle. In fact, I very nearly listed it as number one, as it's my personal favorite Zeppelin album and the first record I remember taking from my dad.
It feels almost impossible to rank any album other than IV at the top of this list. In fact, upon writing that sentence I didn't plan on listing every track on the record, but couldn't decide which songs to leave out.
There are entire books written about this song. Entire works just about Jimmy Page's guitar solo alone, one that has literally never been recreated since. But that one song is somehow not enough to overshadow the rest of the record, which in just eight tracks manages to hit the entire scope of Led Zeppelin music, from blues to ballads to hard rock.
What's interesting is that IV became such a stereotype of rock music success that both critics and fans have developed a biased hatred for it, as Steven Hyden explained in his book , Twilight of the Gods.
Despite being viewed as a boilerplate rock album in , it's impossible to ignore the lasting influence and success of IV. United States. Think I is a second press and all the others appear to be first. Sleeves are all in good condition and records play perfectly. Any idea of current values and the best places to sell?
Sadly we have no space to store anymore and it seems a shame for them to sit wasted in a loft. Any help hugely appreciated! UK based. You can look at a site such as Discogs to et an idea of value of albums — it all comes down to condition. If you want to sell them all in one go to a dealer, you will get maybe a third of an eBay price, because they will want to make a profit also. These Russian pressings are not official Atlantic Records releases i.
I have an old Led Zeppelin II LP which has a discrepancy between the disk label and the album cover as to which tracks are on what side. Anyway, when I got home and played it, it was something completely different on side 2. I was so disappointed so I went back with the record and got a new correct one. How stupid was I when I was only 16 years old? Would it have a great value today if I had kept it? Have anyone of you heard about a pressing of this kind? Hi Arne.
Mispressings like this happen a lot more than most people think, as it can sometimes be chaos in the pressing plant. The most common pressing plant errors are typos on labels or just the wrong labels being put on the records. In both situations, the record may command just slightly more in the marketplace, as an oddity, but not that much more.
But many dealers mistakenly think these things are indeed rarities and will assign a premium value to them. I would think that if the incorrect side had a rather unpopular artist on it, it may not be worth much more than the correct version of the album.
But if it had a popular or the same artist, it may be worth a little more to a collector. Thanks for the information. As you say, there is no title on my record the correct one I changed to back in Now I at least know which record I have. I can now stop regretting that I returned the recorde to the shop 46 years ago.
I can instead enjoy the real Led Zeppelin record. I still have it. Have had a copy of physical graffiti for a number of years now side4 even though has the right tracks on it has the side 4 label of the Song remains the same album any thoughts on this and possible worth.
As for value: about the same as a Physical reissue, but you may get a bit more from a collector who views it as a curiosity. I know when I bought these I was told they are colored vinyl. I do believe they are boots. Any info? First a word about bootlegs: A bootleg is a recording that is not commercially available to the public such as a live concert recording never released by the label.
A pirate is an unauthorized copy of an existing authorized album. These colored vinyl albums with the colored dots are later circa versions from the E. The albums are just produced to make money for the creators of them. Any idea on its rarity and or value? Thanks, Greg. Hi Greg: is it this one? OK, stupid question. I cannot for the life of me find one. Where are such things found? I may not have an exceptional copy but at least want a complete copy. Hi Jim — not a stupid question at all.
Looking at Discogs that is what came with copies of the LP. If so, that was an inner sleeve that may have been common to many LPs released by Atlantic at that time of release.Cap it all off with Page's brilliant production and a stunning, memorable album cover (in this case, anonymous nude girls climbing on rocks) and you've got yourself a Led Zeppelin masterpiece. "Houses Of The Holy" is a thrilling Zeppelin album, with Led Zeppelin totally on top of the world and on top of their game. An outstanding rock classic/5().
