Offered for sale is a rare live album by Led Zeppelin, Live on Blueberry Hill, issued on the Trademark of Quality label with one red vinyl disc and one blue vinyl disc.
About this copy: This copy of Live on Blueberry Hill is an early 1970s pressing on the Trademark of Quality label.
The cover has a rubber stamped title but no TMOQ sticker. The cover retains the original shrink wrap.
The original insert is included.
This copy has mixed labels; the red vinyl first disc has blank labels. A previous owner has written “Side 1” and “Side 2″ on them and Side 2 has a spiral drawn on it. This disc is VG++, it’s close to M-, but has a small and likely inaudible 1/2” mark on side 2.
The blue vinyl second disc has the “sideways pig” label. It’s the variation with the smaller pig logo and the words “Made in Holland” at the bottom. That disc is VG++, and very close to M-, with just one or two faint scuffs. The disc has clearly only been played once or twice.
A beautiful copy of a rare live LP and the only copy of this one that we’ve ever had for sale.

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.
