In the r/vinyl/ subreddit, reddit user “zingo-spleen” uploaded scans of several album covers that were created for illegal Russian pressings of Led Zeppelin albums. Check out the band’s second through fifth albums, being II,III, IV, and Houses of the Holy, which is strangely called V in the Russian version. I mean, they’re weren’t Chicago.

In March 1981 N.Y. Rocker put Pylon on its cover as part of their “New Sounds of the Old South” cover story on Athens, Georgia. But I love this for the magazine picking R.E.M. as one of their breakout picks. The group signed to IRS Records in May 1982, so nice going, music editor.
