About this copy:  This copy of Led Zeppelin III is a 1972 Japanese pressing of an album that was originally released in 1970.

This version included a poster that was not included in the original 1970 pressing of the album.

The front cover features the “rotating wheel” as on the UK and U.S. issues.

The cover is VG+, with moderate edge and corner wear.  The obi is VG+ with a few wrinkles.  The “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag) is still attached.

The lyric insert is M-.  The poster is VG, with holes in all four corners, a number of wrinkles, and a couple of minor tears at the edges.

The disc is M- with a few spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  Clean disc!

A beautiful copy of a terrific LP that’s usually found incomplete.

Background:  Led Zeppelin III, released in 1970, was the band’s third album.  The album reached #1 in the U.S. and the UK, helped by radio play of the single “Immigrant Song,” which reached #16 on the U.S. singles chart.

Allmusic.com gave Led Zeppelin III a rare 5 star review:

On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation that gives the music extra depth.
