A Rare Led Zeppelin Find
Led Zeppelin IV disc on Pink Vinyl
(Import K 50008 on Atlantic Records). Only 165 of these records were pressed.
What a gift my friend had presented to me… and I had no idea. He did say that I would thank him later. Recently, I researched the record and my eyes popped out of my head. I don’t have too many really rare records in my collection. But the ones I do have, I think are pretty cool.
Rare 45 of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven 45 Which was not released to the public as a single
Rare 45 Jukebox Find
One of my favorite jukebox finds is from a local vinyl collector in the U.K. To find, “Stairway to Heaven,” on a 45 ( full version) is nearly impossible. They never released it to the public. But they did press a run of 45s for jukebox owners. I found a used one for $40. Some sell for as much as $110. I love collecting Zep music on 45s. They only released 10 in the United States. Around the world is another story. It is fun being a collector searching for rare versions and songs from all over the world.
