Same as the first issue with "Livin' Lovin' Wreck" later changed to "Livin' Lovin' Maid"
identical to 1st press except for this being a PYE contract pressing
this can be seen by the label design with the circular groove on the middle of the label
these have etched matrix numbers on run-out A B with no number after. Due to expected high demand Pye pressed up before release with The Wreck labels

PYE contract pressing exists both with the error "Wreck" (printed in 1969) as this copy, and with the correct title "Maid" Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II.

Original Atlantic recording (made July-August at various locations), pressed/manufactured & distributed under license in the UK by Polydor Records Limited and utilizing the Polydor catalog# series for the UK.

This recording has "Whole Lotta Love" (A1), "The Lemon Song" (A3). These four elements had credit changes effected on later issues, together with a retitling of tracks A3 & B2.
No track timings are given.
