About this copy: This copy of Live on Blueberry Hill is a 1972 pressing on the Trademark of Quality label.
The cover has a rubber stamped title and a silver sticker with a pig that says, “Trade Mark of Quality” on the front cover.
The tile is quite well stamped and is fully legible. The cover is VG+ with trace corner wear and some discoloration along the top edge. It’s a nice example with no splits.
The original insert is M-. The original paper inner sleeves are included.
This copy has mixed “sideways pig” labels; the orange and brown marble vinyl first disc has black labels. The blue vinyl second disc has green labels. These are the labels with the larger pigs that do not say “Made in Holland” on them.
Both discs are M- and may be unplayed. Clean discs!
One of the photos of the orange and brown disc was taken with a light bulb behind it to better display the marbling.
A beautiful copy of a rare Led Zeppelin LP and the only copy we’ve ever seen with a marbled vinyl disc.

Los Angeles, 1970: Led Zeppelin perform a powerful set of songs (prior to recording Zeppelin III) comprised of heavy blues numbers and a dense onslaught of rock & roll. While the sound clarity is adequate at times, at other moments the sound is faint and simply flat — common flaws in bootleg recordings from this era. Still, the music on Blueberry Hill packs a punch. The set is dominated by three outstanding folk/blues rock medleys: “From the Midnight Sun” (later titled “Immigrant Song”) and “Heartbreaker”; “Communication Breakdown,” “Good Times Bad Times,” “For What It’s Worth” and (not listed) “I Saw Her Standing There,” and Zeppelin’s signature blues rock medley comprised of “Whole Lotta Love,” “Let that Boy Boogie Woogie,” “I’m Movin’ On,” “Think It Over,” and “Lemon Song.” The bass and guitar transitions between the tunes on “Communication Breakdown” medley are funky, and the explosive renditions of Stephen Stills’ “For What It’s Worth” and Lennon/McCartney’s “I Saw Her Standing There” are priceless in their inventive approach.
