Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: Led Zeppelin’s ‘Song Remains The Same’ Box Set

I love this box set! 180 gram vinyl that sounds amazing with extra tracks like the outstanding live version of ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’. This is a scratch and dent copy I got on ebay for about $30. I could care less about the edge wear on the box because the vinyl sounds so fantastic! New copies can be found for as little as $50 on discogs, ebay, and amazon. One of my favorites from my collection.
