Not that I have another pressing to compare to but this is an absolutely average pressing, just comparing it to the quality of other records... I can hear good dynamic range. I've never been able to tell the difference between digital and analogue personally... Don't expect me to get into any of that jazz.My copy isn't the quietest on surface noise - in quieter sections I can hear consistent crackle - and this is the worst part of my copy. It isn't too distracting thankfully and I'd say it's only on the low end of the crackly scale. My copy was mint, going over it with the anti-static brush brought up quite a bit of dirt, this probably contributes to the crackle.I really don't like how there's a sticker on the album cover. Why ruin the artwork like that?Comes in an anti-static inner which is great to see.For £11 i'd call myself satisfied.

"IV" is unequivocally the creative apex of Led Zeppelin's musical output, the culmination of their distinctively folksy, hippie stomp style of hard rock. Robert Plant's mystical lyrics are never more eerie and plausible than on each of the eight tracks herein, with both "Stairway to Heaven" and "When the Levee Breaks" being so propulsive and groundbreaking in terms of sound that both compositions implemented a muscular, metallic sonic prototype which in turn reconceptualized hard rock as we now know it.Of course Led Zeppelin's visionary status and artistic momentum inevitably faltered after producing such a matchless work of traditionalist rock imbued with folk, blues and even funk; no band could ever live up to the seismic bombast and fortuity of this record, however, Led Zeppelin were one of the few acts to enter the 1980s with their credibility and reputation intact, which is testament to their artistic integrity and desire to be viewed as serious musicians rather than rock stars. I am of the belief that they achieved a level of respect and commercial success on a scale no other band has since, or perhaps ever will again.Beyond the torrential riffs, thunderous drumming and soaring vocals, "IV" feels more epic in tonality, the rhythmic, pounding rock 'n' roll serving as the rhapsodic arrangement for soul-stirring apocalyptic poetry delivered with sheer credence by Robert Plant. "IV" is a musical milestone you must listen to at least once in order to fully appreciate its qualities and dynamics; an assured combination of genres constituting hard rock but sounding unlike anything you've ever heard before, this is a true example of classic rock and you owe it to yourself to let it wash over you.

I just got my copy today from Amazon USA after much hesitation reading about all of the pressing problems. Evidently that is with the USA / Canada Pallas USA pressing. So far I'm listening to Side 2 first after a thorough cleaning with my VPI Cyclone. I set my VTA for the thickness of this pressing and was unimpressed. Now second pass with taking it up another .25 mm and it sounds completely different, like it should. Oops, set too low to start. Fourth pass with the VTA up to where it should be and it sounds like it should and very nice at that. Just got done with the first pass on Side 1 and it is splendid. On the second pass now. Hearing things I don't remember.I bought this because my original first press Led Zeppelin - Untitled that I bought way back when of this album's Side 1 was full of pressing noise at the end of Battle and the beginning of Stairway. Side 2 was perfect. When I get done with the other side of this pressing I'll go and get my first and play Side 2 for an apples and apples. I'll report back on the comparison soon.

This mastering & pressing of Zep IV is awesome. If it doesn't sound like you're wearing headphones without actually wearing headphones, then you need a better stereo. The 3-D quality of 'Battle Of Evermore' is insane, not to mention the holographic delight that is 'Going To California'. And don't get me started on 'Stairway'... Well done Pagey!

So what people talk about when they think this sounds bad is most likely the digital mastering. I myself was expecting this to be a great sounding issue but after listening I felt like it was missing something and still prefererad my older 70s issue. I thought it had a lot of detail with a clean press but for some reason sounded very flat and sterile. If you are looking for the best sounding new versions of these albums I hear that the Classic Records releases are a good choice. They are very expensive but are made by people who really care and do great mastering for vinyl. I myself am getting one and doing a blind test to see which I think sounds best between the 70s issue, 2014 remaster and 2007 Classic Records version. In the end its a good record and if you dont mind that much its just a great deal, but personally I would go for many 70s reissues that are in NM condition over this. Update:The Classic Records release by Grundman are easily superior for some albums and closer with others, they are never worse than the 2014 reissues however.Equipment used:Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 CartridgeCyrus 2 AmplifierSustem Fidelity SF-3050 Tower SpeakersCustom made HQ Cables

Surprised to read so many reviews here claiming this pressing is flat and like a CD. Mine sounds like no such thing. It is detailed and very dynamic and smokes the CD. I do not have a 70s pressing to hand, but I know a good pressing from a flat one, and this has gotten me closer to the music than I have heard before, even though it comes from a digital source — and, that, I might add, from a poor production to begin with. If, like me, you don't want to drop an obscene amount of money on a noisy, original pressing, this is a good way to get close to the music for twenty quid.Equipment used: Clearaudio Champion turntableGoldring 1042 cartridgeGraham Slee Gold Era V preampCayin A-50T tube amplifierMonitor Audio Silver 8 speakers

I just acquired this exact pressing except that it also has Columbia NY etched in the runout groove of side A and 1AA after the 285 identified above. I know it's 1977 US green/red Atlantic label, PR pressing, not a club release (despite the Columbia etching, there is no CRC on the label), but I imagine that it's just a runout groove variant. Does anyone know more? Thanks in advance.

just listened to this 8-Track Columbia House version with the blue outline around the album cover on the front and there is a good minute (maybe 2) missing from the middle Stairway! the silences are missing too (though they are shown on the label), but even if someone cut my specific tape they could hardly take the silences from the end of the tape but part of Stairway from the middle...right? thought you guys should know.

My copy weighs in at 125grams...most 70s come in around 100grams give or take so pretty decent in terms of weight. As far as the sound goes i don't have a copy to compare but I notice a lack of punch in the lower end. Quite clear seperation in the instruments...as i said tho, really need to A/B test against something else. Happy with this piece of rock history!

I compared this to a '77 repress and overall, the older LP, not in the freshest of condition anymore still sounds more dynamic compared to this new remaster. If I did not have another to compare it to, I may not mind as much but this new version can be a bit high on the treble and does not provide much of a thump to the bass or drums as I would like. Jimmy's guitar and Robert's vocals do sound quite good and nicely spread apart, the solo on Stairway shreds. My remaster copy does not seem to be as bad as some others have experienced, mine is good for what it is but I will still be looking to replace it for a nicer 70's press.

I don´t know how they made this edition but to me, this vinyl version sounds flat, more than CD. Don´t buy it. It is cheap, but it sounds so compressed that I dont think I will listen to it many times, so now I feel like I threw my money to trash. No, there is no soul here man, even when we are talking about Led Zeppelin. Rock likes analog sound, not digital. Now I know why is so cheap: no one wants this and they have to get rid of it somehow.

Two things:1) The closer your pressing is dated, the better it sounds.2) If Led Zeppelin I sounded like an acid trip in Texas, their fourth album is at another level. In all honesty, I don't think they're a heavy metal band like I previously reckoned. Instead, they're just a band that loves to reinvent themselves--even though yes, their trademark hard rock sounds are featured here but their fourth album is more than just making you feel like you can put your mind to anything. I see it as a journey to a world I never been to but I'd be welcome. In fact, the closest thing that my imagination can concoct with is the very first Legend of Zelda game on the NES. Call me crazy but this album and that game just pair so well with each other. Maybe it had to do with those Celtic vibes. Whatever it is, I just can't stop listening to it. It's that amazing.

Have the Pecko 'A' side variant.Pecko Duck 'B' side. White inner sleeve.Supposedly the rare version. Possibly, from UK stampers. Read this tidbit, but not verified.The million dollar question...How does it sound? This record sounds fantastic!Excellent seperation. Nice tonality on the instruments. Good depth in the music.Robert Plant's vocals, are clear and forward.Everything is enjoyable on Led Zeppelin IV.I like all of their releases. This is one of my favorites! Have a few versions. If you should have a cool, unneeded extra. Maybe send it my way. Always up for some comparisons.Alright. Let's look at it a bit... Stairway to Heaven contains a richness.The quality of the Jimmy Page's guitars and Plant's vocals are sweet. John Bonham's drums and John Paul Jones' bass are well balanced. The finale does not get as wild, as some later IV offerings. Everything is seemingly geared towards studio perfection. The goal is acheived. Monarch pressings are excellent! For sure Mate. Try one and see.Cheers!!

As a buyer, thanks for the heads-up. Was just about to buy this weekend a copy under this entry. So, you're saying that there definitely exist copies that bear both "... audio new 82 ..." on Side 1 and "... NEW AUD ..." on Side 2? And, yet, some copies that bear only one of those matrices?

Years ago I picked up a copy of this exact pressing just to get a cover to house my early 70's WEA Canada SD7208 copy of LZIV. I only sampled a few tracks to see how it sounds... and from what I remember, this one's a real clunker (at least the version with the 2nd or 3rd matrix variant listed as of 2019-10-26). It's horrifically muddy and saturated in woolly bass to the point of no return!I believe the listening experience was clearly ruined by something beyond just treble reduction in the mastering stage, because not even cranking the treble up to eleven on my BBE razz box could fix the muddiness, and that's really saying something given that the BBE is usually an excellent remedy for records lacking in treble. It's a shame that the mastering engineers at CBS Don Mills - while usually technically competent - clearly weren't able to reuse the same source tape that made earlier Canadian pressings sound as good as they do. Not recommended. I parted with this one a while back.

The sleeve is listed as having an 'untypically heavy card(board)', yet my copy (if genuine, which I believe it by all appearances is) is the exact opposite and caught me off guard when I opened the package upon recently purchasing it. It is an untypically LIGHT gatefold sleeve, flimsy and flappy. It kind of goes perfectly well with the mysticism attached to the symbols and the record in general seeing that it almost feels like some old artifact, but again, not a 'heavy card' at all.. Can anyone else confirm this who also owns the record? Is the original UK plum also like this?

Hey thanks for the quick response. Hmm.. there's nothing 'thick' feeling about my particular copy, though. And it also has a kind of 'pinkish' tint to cover Keith Morris photograph. Does yours as well?Also, Galactix, do you mind sending me photos of your outer sleeve, displaying both the apparent thickness and in good light so that I can also gauge the tint of it.DM me if you'd be willing. I'd appreciate it, greatly.

It's not that heavy like e.g. early sturdy US cardboards. I got two copies of this transitional release (one not yet listed here with "A Porky Prime Cut" in the Matrix). This cover at least "feels" thicker, or the packaging material is made from a different tree :) ... and it's not laminated

So what people talk about when they think this sounds bad is most likely the digital mastering. I myself was expecting this to be a great sounding issue but after listening I felt like it was missing something and still prefererad my older 70s issue. I thought it had a lot of detail with a clean press but for some reason sounded very flat and sterile. If you are looking for the best sounding new versions of these albums I hear that the Classic Records releases are a good choice. They are very expensive but are made by people who really care and do great mastering for vinyl. I myself am getting one and doing a blind test to see which I think sounds best between the 70s issue, 2014 remaster and 2007 Classic Records version. In the end its a good record and if you dont mind that much its just a great deal, but personally I would go for many 70s reissues that are in NM condition over this. Update:The Classic Records release by Grundman are easily superior for some albums and closer with others, they are never worse than the 2014 reissues however.Equipment used:Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 CartridgeCyrus 2 AmplifierSustem Fidelity SF-3050 Tower SpeakersCustom made HQ Cables

Maybe it is different reissue then, or maybe they did some sleeves on grapha tami, and some on ALMI. Look closer the front sleeve color, on my grapha tami copy (the uploaded images here are from my copy) there is a blue/lilac tone, probably mistakenly. On the uploaded fotos here, you can see clearly this color tone. You have to examιne carefully the labels as well.

Took a flyer on an Ebay seller offering an unplayed NOS K 50008 showing no pictures of the disc but calling the matrices A4 B3 which, although inaccurate sounding, seemed telling. Sure enough, and hoping for a Porky, on arrival it's this one. An unplayed 1972 2nd release of the Peckham cut for £40 makes all the paid-through-the-nose for other Mint/sealed vinyl on Discogs and Ebay rather more palatable. Too bad he bent and bumped the sleeve by joke packing, but if he knew what he was doing I likely wouldn't have got this!

Nope, thick and heavy sleeve (thicker and heavier in fact than the sleeve of the unplayed Lilac that I just picked up and shall be selling as soon as I have the time to list). I've never seen a Plum so can't gauge relative weight, but as the spaceman says the Transitional sleeve is not quite US-so-thick-there's-no-room-for-the-inner, but there's nothing floppy about mine and it's roughish texture too. Are you sure yours is the Transitional?

I can't say I'm afraid -- I'm rebuilding my vinyl collection before I rebuild my system, so have no turnatble yet. However, a bit of online research turns up a number of suggestions that this transitional, presumed-2nd A3/B4 Porky was pressed from the UK Plum lacquers. This doesn't appear to be just wishful thinking either as not only do the matrices match but I can add from my own purchase that this transitional issue comes with the fold-over / paste-down inner that's described as only coming with the 2nd release of this album. This may be a bit of a sleeper currently, as a mint Porky cut from plum plates will cost a month's salary these days, so if you can find a clean one of these transitionals I would go for it unless you have money to burn for effectively the same thing with a different coloured label...

I was a bit skeptical buying this pressing based on the reviews and comments posted but I'm pretty happy with my copy. I cleaned the stylus before playing, the record with cleaner and a brush plus used the anti-static brush. No surface noise at all, no crackles or pops or skips. Very enjoyable to sit and listen to. Sure it isn't the most dynamic sounding pressing I've ever but as a casual Zeppelin fan I'm happy with the pressing.

DamageINC78 I got my copy from Amazon today and it plays through without issue. Very quiet and sounds good. I suspect turntable over LP. I can say that playing my LPs on improperly setup and/or poor quality tables results in the 20 skips thing on various LPs. On my properly setup U-Turn (entry level) table none of my records skip. I would check every aspect of turntable setup and make sure the stylus is clean. They all probably have budget tables or cant set them up properly. Mine plays fine.

Saturday 6th May 2017:To be clear - this 1975 issue is merely a re-pressing of the 1971, original, US issue that had featured the George Peckham mastering and George Piros signed approval. In this case, the matrices feature "...-FF".This version is, effectively, the original mastering, not a remastering; it was merely re-pressed in 1975 by Monarch Records.

My copy of this pressing sounds different to me than the other reviews. It is lively and dynamic in the mids, but really very brittle and thin which doesn't blend with the low-end at all. All the power and glue from the low-mids has disappeared. I do agree that the end result really isn't that good, even for the affordable price it's retailed at.

Unfortunately have to agree with the opinion, lows sound like 'Jimmy Page who produced and remastered the album' wanted to decrease their involvement, which makes the album sound bit flat.

In the early 1970s was a bit super guitarist on heroin (Eric Clapton, Keith Richards) or at a guru (John McLaughlin, Carlos Santana). Super guitarist Jimmy Page of the British group Led Zeppelin dunked himself in occultism and bought among other things the former cottage of the British black magician Aleister Crowley. Also around the immensely successful Led Zeppelin began more and more to form, whether or not occult myths and their fourth album carried there in 1971. It has no official title, the cover does not contain any information and in the inner cover, the band members only with symbols. But also the cryptic text of Led Zeppelin's most famous song Stairway To Heaven led to many, whether or not malicious analyses. In particular, this epic that builds up organic pastoral folk to solid rock, is one of the highlights of the leading national album of the group. Between the blaring rock by opener Black Dog and the steaming (by Beastie Boys sampled) blues of valve When The Leevee Breaks, unfolds a dynamic classic rock album without a weak moment. The inspiration of this super group of layman but not to dry and even here, were assigned by evil tongues occult powers.

Good pressing. I can't tell you the exact differences between the remaster and the original but it still has all the same tape flaws (really evident in parts of Stairway and Levee). It's probably better than your 1970's version you stole from your parents or found secondhand. And it's pretty cheap, about $20 on average. I find my copy for about $25 at Barnes and Noble. Recommended if you want a decent and new pressing of this LP.

This is the closest I can find to my copy of the album. Though what first struck me and is leading me on this search is that the album cover has an odd blue tint to the entire thing. I also have an original brown colored sleeve and it is evident that it's not from fading or discoloration, but that it was printed this way. The Cat# is SD 7208. The label is printed as (ST-A-712285 PR) on side A and (ST-A-712286 PR) on side B. While the runout is etched with the PECKO ST-A-712285 D on side A, and ST-A-712286 F PECKO DUCK on side B. The coloring of the gatefold confounds me and I am determined to find out what issue and release this is. It doesn't help that I am new to vinyl and not very knowledgeable on all of the jargon. Any help would be appreciated!

I found the companion disc to be rather disappointing. The dub songs sound almost exactly the same as the official releases and the other tracks just completely cut-out some of the best parts (such as the vocals from Battle of Evermore.) For die-hard fans this may be kind of neat to hear it separated, but it gets old very quick. I would much rather they just released some live materials instead. Also, side 1 of my companion disc had a lot of skips, especially on the first track. Going to have to return it. Hope I was just unlucky... Edit: My 2nd copy was just as bad. Amazon says they are going to pull stock and evaluate if they're all defective. (Don't know if that will really happen.) So be forewarned.

I'd go along with it's not a great pressing. I put on Rock And Roll and cranked it up and it didn't rock or roll. There's a real lack of "presence" (ha!), or oompf, or something. My copy of Band on the Run (yeah, yeah, I know...) which is EMI Australia from 1973, sounds far superior.

I'd agree that a lot of AU pressings aren't top line but often just because they were done from copy tapes from the US/UK, but I don't agree so much about the weight.With this one I recently got a prime condition copy (AU 1st press LZ IV). Initial play sounded unclear *until* I gave it a vacuum wash. Actually sounds *very* respectable now. Tempted to keep it.

Some believe this album is 'untitled' & that it was intentionally left as such, but this just isn't true & as an artist an an intelligent person I find this offensive as I'm sure many do.This album is Led Zeppelin (4, four, IV) by virtue of the fact that apart from being the fourth studio album the artist has used four symbols to 'say' as much. It is wrong to assume this album is untitled when this is it's title.If it were writen in brail we wouldn't say it was untitled just because we couldn't read it? & if the four symbols were writen in a recognised way, 'F O U R' or '1 2 3 4' or even just four dots then people would accept it more readily, but it is offensive to the artist to not see the obvious. All alphabets started as pictoral symbols so why be prejudiced against these symbols just because they are not what we 'know'? However u write it, it is four & the only reason later versions had it printed on was because of this nonsense from those who didn't see the obvious.

This is the most mysterious item in my LZ collection. I originally assumed it was pressed for export due to the 'made in Gt Britain' labels. I showed this to a message board of very knowledgeable long-time collectors and determined that was not the case: apparently a printer in another country copying a British label was not particularly concerned about small details like that. The other clue is the 'deep groove' in the center label, which I was told is a result of retrofitting an old record press that made 10" discs to make the larger size. One person said he had seen the label before, on an Aretha Franklin record that was part of a huge collection of records from India and other nearby countries. The high quality of the printing and pressing and the British label made me conclude it is from a member of the British Commonwealth, possibly for sale to British military personnel in the few bases it still occupied at the time (in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore). Other possibilities are Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, the Seychelles, or the Maldives. If anyone has information, please let me know. Also, let me know if I should leave the country of origin blank or change it to the U.K.

This is a common case in The Philippines too. A lot of foreign records released here locally will have 2 "made in _____" on the label or the back cover. Some will have "made in the philippines" stickered over the original.

I have an Aussie press version of his with no manufactured/ distributed by WEA mentioned on label, lyric sleeve, cover or anything, on red & green Atlantic labels, Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin text in the green part of the label between the white strip and the symbols, SD 7208 MX165589 stamped in the deadwax (side 1). The label mentions manufactured in Australia so it's a safe assumption his is an Australian press? but I don't see a reference of this version on discogs. Can anyone shed some light on this?

1971 original release ( Australia). Not a repress if it also has Levee misspelt as Leevee on side 2 label.

You probably have one of these:http://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Untitled/release/7596458http://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Untitled/release/5605451I'm thinking these should be merged though.

There's a chance that this one is the same:https://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Untitled/release/2999468In this case it's 1972, so pretty nice

I'll never forget the first time I heard this album. My wife brought it home in the winter of 1971/1972 with a hit of purple mescaline that we shared. We listened to this album over and over again all night long with other friends that visited and brought their own acid. I still faintly flashback whenever I tune to the radio and any one of these songs are played. This was also one of the background albums I listened to while reading the Lord of the Ring books in 1972. Classic rock, indeed!

my copy is definitely SD 19129, and does not have the "MO" or "PR" designation on the label. But there is no dash after the numbers. I couldn't find any Discogs entries that were an exact match... this seems to be the closest.

Can anyone find a date for this press? I bought mine around 2009 and assumed it was a new press.

I have one small issue about the year of this LP. Most of the information here matches to the record I own. Mine also has "Misty mountain Top" printed on side B rather than "Misty mountain Hop". Cat - K50008, Porky/perky run outs, stairway lyrics on inner sleeve, does have Kinney Music/Superhype, green/orange labels, made in UK. Anyone else have similar info on their pressing ? Any chance this is a first press ?Cheers

I recall the "Misty Mountain Top" pressing and I don't think that it was a first pressing. It might even be one of the pressings with the drop-out during "Four Sticks" (near the end). The original issue of the album was on the orange / plum Atlantic label in 1971 cat. no. 2401012 (Polydor era) and the cat. no. K50008 would date from 1972 onwards (i.e. from when Kinney numbers were first used) therefore making the date given here correct. Check the copyright note around the edge of the label. If it crosses the central white band and declares "A Warner Communications Company" with the Warners "blob" logo (my name for it) then it will date from even later - 1974 or so.

Not even the fully-talented drummer John Bonham himself (considered one of the best Rock & Roll drummers ever), on his opening drum performance of Led Zeppelin IV's last tune "When The Levee Breaks" would imagine that his breakbeats would be sampled years later by so many of the dance music standards. Hip Hop acts such as Beastie Boys, Dr. Dre, Ice-T and Eminen are just some of them, as well of Wild Bunch guys of Massive Attack (with "Man Next Door"). The Electronic Music also borrowed "When The Levee Breaks" beats; you can hear them on "Never Let Me Down Again" by Depeche Mode, but also standards of samplemania like "Beats And Peaces" from Coldcut & Steinski, the drop from 'J.T. & The Big Family – Moments In Soul', "Devotion" from Kicking Back with Taxman (1990) and 'Saint Etienne - Only Love Can Break Your Heart', all from the Cool steps era. The list is immense, almost impossible to mention on its full extension. Considering that this is just one of "Led Zeppelin IV"'s tunes (you also have the slow classy "Stairway To Heaven", plus "Black Dog" and "Rock & Roll") you have an idea of the album's importance, not only for the Rockers, but other music genres addicteds.

The drum beat from "When the Levee Breaks" would also later be sampled by Imani Coppola in her song "I Love Your Hair" (2007).
