Yet another Led Zeppelin label error has been spotted (many thanks to Jonas for pointing this one out). The debut album, as we all know, was originally issued with the ‘turquoise’ sleeve variant. This sleeve should carry a vinyl with a Superhype label, as opposed to a later Warner Bros label (see below). However, it turns out there are two versions of this label for Superhype, one with an erroneous numbering system for crediting the publishing on side 1. Check out the two labels below:
The top label lists (correctly) that songs 1, 2, 4. are published by Superhype Music and song 3. by Jewel Music. The 2nd label lists songs 1, 3, 4. as Superhype and then 3. again as Jewel… (don’t pay too much attention to the colour variance in the labels above, the 1st label is a hi-res scan from my own collection, the 2nd label is a camera photograph I’ve sourced from the internet).
The Warner Bros version is shown below for comparison:
Well spotted Jonas!
