Released on 31st March 1969, this was the world debut of Led Zeppelin.
The very first UK issue had this Turquoise lettered sleeve. The rear picture is a degree more brown tinted than the later orange copies.
There is a noticeable grey bar at the bottom of the front image which characterised the Polydor pressings and was removed when they changed to Warner distribution.
The reverse of the sleeve has the 'Uptight An' Outasight' credit that was replaced with a Warner credit after the Polydor issues.

The labels have 'Superhype' and 'Jewel Music' credits under the tracklisting and the side one label erroneously credits the third track twice, with the Superhype credit listing '1, 3 4' and not '1, 2, 4'.
They are the familiar plum & red design with black fan to the right, 'Made in Gt. Britain' at the top & 'Polydor Records Limited' at the bottom.

More details on Condition:


The sleeve remains in very nice condition with a few obvious laminate creases evident, particularly at the corners. There is a small amount of laminate lift in places, which is normal, particularly at the spine. There is some scuffing at the corners and a small split to the centre of the spine, but otherwise it shows no more shelfwear than you would expect. Its condition as a forty five year old album remains very respectable indeed. The front image is still very white and could easily be displayed.


The matrix numbers are 588171 A//1 & 588171 B//1 and are not scratched out as in later issues.

The labels have some spindle marks around the centre hole but not to excess. The vinyl shows some obvious surface hairlines & light scuffs on both sides but plays through without fault. Thanks to the superior quality of this pre-oil crisis pressing, when played the effect is minimal although the odd pop & click can be heard at times.
