Lovin’ Wreck

Timothy Campbell was reading about early pressings of Led Zeppelin 2 recently during all the activity surrounding the reissues of the first three albums (no I haven’t given in yet, still have the original vinyl!). Amongst the mass of trivia about variations on the sleeves and labels was a story that one version from around 1969 lists ‘Living Lovin Maid’ as ‘Living Loving Wreck’ on the label. Quite how this came about is not known. Tonny Steenhagen had a hunt around and found the proof. Now we need to see if there’s a version of In Rock with Living Maid on it…

    Thanks to Simon for the tip on Neil’s site as I am now going to spend a lot of time on it!

    Roy has it right in the above – credit where credit is due.

    I bought Aerosmith’s ‘Draw The Line’ album back in the day and when I opened it at home there was an Earth Wind & Fire disc in there instead.

    I have a version of In Rock that has side 2 closer as “Hard Lovin’ Maid”…..just kidding

  4. Roy Davies Says:

    I’d be interested in any ‘LZ1’ pressing that correctly credits Anne Bredon, Willie Dixon, Bert Jansch, Jake Holmes and Robert Johnson!

    Hi Simon, you should have asked me! I’ve got all the label variations and sleeve variations for this. Led Zepp’s 4th is even worse with 6 label versions…http://www.rarerecordcollector.net/atlantic/led-zeppelin/led-zeppelin-ii/

      Anyone interested in rare rock albums and pressing should have Neil’s site on speed dial and silly me for not consulting!
