    Hey there all Zep heads!

    Recently I found out about the 6 cover variants on ITTOD vinyl and the water color inner sleeve which just blew my mind! :pullhair: I just tried it and the cigarette pack actually turned blue!!

    Anyway, my question is: Is any one of these six variant covers more desirable than the others? The cover I have is "D". I've searched the internet and no answer, so one of you guys must know!!

    Thanks guys and rock on!!

    I don't believe that there are any more desirable covers at all. There are collectors that have all six variations, and collectively the set is worth more than the sum of individual albums. I will make further enquiries at the next vinyl faire and rectify any incorrect info. Till then :)

    Pick sixes...

    It is only notable if you are an ardent follower of the group, I guess. If not, it isn't a big deal. Decades ago, I lucked out on a flea market seller that had all six for sale. Just the jackets themselves with promo stamps on them. No LPs or inner sleeves.

    Since then, I picked up used copies of the album to stock them with LPs just because... I never tried the watercolor trick on any of them BTW.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I was a bit reluctant to try the watercolor aspect of the sleeve. I didn't want to ruin it. But i just got a Q-tip damp and rubbed it over a small corner and it changed.
