About this copy:  This copy of Led Zeppelin III is the third Japanese pressing, released in 1976.  This version included a poster that was also included in the second issue, but not in the first one.  This poster was only included in Japanese issues of the album.

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

This LP includes the original obi and the original lyric insert.

The cover is VG+, with a bit of ring wear on the back and wear at the corners and edges.  Obi is VG+, with a few wrinkles, but no tears.  The lyric insert and poster are M-; the poster has no holes or tears.

The disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any play.

A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.

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.
