A Classic Rock Classic! Signed By All Four

Led Zeppelin signs their debut album Led Zeppelin I album signed on the back in ballpoint next to their images by all four members: John Bonham, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. The album’s front cover, which was chosen by Page, features a black-and-white image of the burning Hindenburg airship. The image refers to the origin of the band's name itself: as the story goes, when Page, Jeff Beck, and The Who’s Keith Moon and John Entwistle were discussing the idea of forming a group, Moon joked, “It would probably go over like a lead balloon.” To which Entwistle allegedly replied, “…a Lead Zeppelin!” The album’s back cover features a photograph of the band taken by former-Yardbird Chris Dreja. In very good condition, with scattered toning, foxing, and soiling to both covers, ballpoint notation on front, and some scattered light edge wear and creasing. The record is included. COA Roger Epperson/REAL and R&R COA.
