About this copy: This copy of In Through the Out Door is an original 1979 pressing on the Swan Song label, and includes the obi, outer brown bag, custom inner sleeve, and lyric insert.

The cover is VG++ with no wear, but with a couple of tiny corner dents.  The obi is M-.  The brown bag is VG++ with a few minor wrinkles.

The custom inner sleeve is VG+, with a lot of discoloration from age, but no tears or splits.  The inner sleeve had colors that appear when water is applied to the sleeve and this has not been done.

The lyric insert is VG++ with slight discoloration from age.

The disc is VG++ with many spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  It’s a clean disc that’s been well cared for, but it may play with a bit of surface noise.

A nice copy of a Led Zeppelin album that’s hard to find complete.

Background: Released in 1979, In Through the Out Door was the eighth and final studio album from Led Zeppelin.

The album was released with six different covers, labeled on the spine with the letters A-F.

The album reached #1 on both the U.S. and UK album charts.

Allmusic.com gave In Through the Out Door a 3 1/2 star review:

Led Zeppelin decided to push into new sonic territory on their eighth album, In Through the Out Door. A good deal of this aural adventurism derived from internal tensions within the band. Jimmy Page and John Bonham were in the throes of their own addictions, leaving Plant and John Paul Jones alone in the studio to play with the bassist’s new keyboard during the day. Jones wound up with writing credits on all but one of the seven songs — the exception is “Hot Dog,” a delightfully dirty rockabilly throwaway — and he and Plant are wholly responsible for the cloistered, grooving “South Bound Saurez” and “All My Love,” a synth-slathered ballad unlike anything in Zeppelin’s catalog due not only to its keyboards but its vulnerability.
