LED ZEPPELIN -LIVING LOVING MAID 10" 45RPM ACETATE 1969


LED ZEPPELIN - LIVING LOVING MAID 10" 45 RPM TEST PRESSING ACETATE WITH TRIDENT STUDIOS LABEL. THIS UNIQUE, ONE OF A KIND ACETATE IS DISTINGUISHED IN SEVERAL WAYS.  FIRST OFF, CONSIDER THAT LED ZEPPELIN ACETATES  SIMPLY NEVER ARE OFFERED FOR SALE.  THERE ARE PERHAPS FEWER THAN A DOZEN GENUINE LED ZEPPELIN ACETATES KNOWN TO EXIST IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS WORLDWIDE.  THE REASON FOR THIS IS SIMPLE.  THEY WERE ALMOST NEVER PRODUCED!  AS JIMMY PAGE WAS GROUPS SOLE MUSICAL PRODUCER, IT WAS ENTIRELY HIS DECISION TO MAKE DECISIONS REGARDING SOUND QUALITY.  PERHAPS, IN SOME INSTANCES,  PETER GRANT WOULD RECEIVE AN ACETATE, BUT THAT SEEMS TO BE ABOUT THE EXTENT OF IT.  WHAT MAKES THIS ACETATE UNIQUE ARE TWO MAJOR POINTS.  THE CRISP DYNAMIC SOUND, AND THE FACT THAT THIS ACETATE WAS JIMMY PAGE'S PERSONAL REFERENCE COPY.  GUARANTEED 100% ORIGINALLY OWNED BY JIMMY PAGE.  IN THE MID 1980'S THIS WAS GIVEN TO AN ASSOCIATE OF THE BAND, WHO LATER GAVE IT TO ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL.  WHICH WAS SUBSEQUENTLY PRIVATELY OFFERED FOR SALE.  THE CONDITION OF THE DISC IS IN THE RANGE OF VG  VISUALLY.  I HAVE NEVER CLEANED IT, BUT IT IS IN ACCEPTABLY CLEAN SHAPE VISUALLY. THERE ARE LIGHT SCUFFS TO BE SEEN, ALSO LIGHT SCRATCHES CAN BE DETECTED UNDER BRIGHT LIGHT.     THESE SCRATCHES DO NOT AFFECT PLAY. MAY I REPEAT THIS POINT THEY ABSOLUTELY DO NOT AFFECT THE TRACKING OF THE STYLUS IN THE GROOVE.  THE RECORD TRACKS 100% PERFECTLY. THE RECORD PLAYS THROUGH 100% WITH NO SKIPPING, NO JUMPING, NO PROBLEMS LIKE THAT AT ALL.  THERE IS SURFACE NOISE PRESENT.  THIS IS NOT TERRIBLY INTRUSIVE ONCE THE MUSIC BEGINS.  BITS OF CRACKLE CAN BE HEARD ON OCCASION, BUT THE SHATTERINGLY LOUD CUT OF THIS DISC ALLOWS ALL OF THE INSTRUMENTAL COMPONENTS OF THIS ALL TIME CLASSIC LED ZEPPELIN PERFORMANCE TO REVEAL THEMSELVES WITH DEFINITIVE PRECISION & DETAIL.THE THIRD PHOTO SHOWS THE REVERSE OF THE DISC WHERE A SECOND HOLE WAS DRILLED TO SECURE THE DISC TO THE LATHE CUTTING SURFACE TO STABILIZE DURING THE CUTTING PROCESS.  THE LABEL WAS PERMANENTLY AFFIXED TO THE DISC AT TRIDENT STUDIOS IN LONDON IT ID GUARANTEED 1000% ORIGINAL & AUTHENTIC.. THE LABEL REVEALS A BIT OF DISCOLORING AND ANTIQUING OWING TO IT'S 40 YEARS OF AGE.  THE SOUND IS ALMOST OVERWHELMINGLY POWERFUL!!  IT IS TRULY ROOF RATTLINGLY LOUD.  CUT AT 45 RPM, THE SOUND IS ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDING.  THERE IS A BIT OF CRACKLE IN THE  INTRO TO THE SONG, AFTER THAT IT PLAYS VERY NICELY, CERTAINLY IN THE RANGE OF VG AUDIBLY, THOUGH THE POWERFUL SIGNAL OVERRIDES & OVERWHELMS THE OCCASIONAL INSTANCES WHERE A BIT OF CRACKLE IS EVIDENT.
    THIS DISC IS A ONE -OF - A - KIND  ITEM, THE ONLY COPY IN EXISTENCE.  WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A GENUINE LED ZEPPELIN ACETATE WAS OFFERED FOR SALE?  NOT VERY OFTEN , THAT IS FOR CERTAIN. I SOLD ANOTHER ACETATE FROM THIS SAME COLLECTION (A 7' D'YER MAKER) ON EBAY IN 2006 FOR A PRICE IN EXCESS OF THE RESERVE PLACED ON THIS MUCH MORE DESIRABLE ITEM.  Here is a perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this fantastic official,   LED ZEPPELIN artifact.   This item will only be sent to the winner by EXPRESS MAIL if it is to be shipped  Internationally. Postage charged at cost. Insurance for USA is optional, I do not believe that insurance is available for International shipments.  Item will be extremely well packaged for shipping. Please do not pay until I have contacted you to confirm shipping details & costs. Any questions please ask.
