    I have a copy of Led Zeppelin I with the sleeve being totally damaged, but the record itself is in good condition and sounds amazing. I tried to find info on it from the etching in the runoff, but I can’t seem to find any with these markings. First off, there is a capital A stamped right in the center above the hole and one part of the etching says “SLM (a triangle shape) 1966. I’m not sure if this is significant to anything, but I am curious. The font on the cover is yellow if that helps in anyway.

      This is a 1984 Re-released,Columbia house record club edition

      Correct..A Columbia House re-issue.
      There is a rare copy out there though..The Atlantic Record label on the lower right of the front cover is in turquoise color, rather than the traditional red and green.
      No 1966 to it..This album, the original, was released in 1968.

      These two gentlemen know their music!
      I love Led Zeppelin, though we only had them for a few years, the music they left us will last forever!

      Thank you thank you! I knew the album was released in 1978, which is why I found it strange that 1966 was etched on it. Obviously it’s in reference to something else. My cover is so badly damaged that I wouldn’t be able to tell if the Atlantic record label was in turquoise. It’s a great sounding record and a classic, so I’m happy to have it in my collection. I actually have two copies of Physical Graffiti and a couple of my friends have offered to buy one from me, but I don’t know what it is. I just can’t part with either one. Partly cause I pieced both albums together from thrift store finds over the course of a couple years. Totally off topic, but thank you for all the replies! That’s a big help!
