It is an OFFICIAL promotional Led Zeppelin album that was NEVER RELEASED by Swan Song Records! This rarity, titled “Led Zeppelin Past, Present and Future” has an amazing full color cover and a test pressing of a 1979 interview with Robert Plant and John Paul Jones. The front shows the famous Michael Ochs photo (in color!) of Led Zeppelin standing in a field, while the back has five interesting and revealing paragraphs of liner notes along with record company information.

This was to be a promotional-only release of an interview conducted at the August 11, 1979 Knebworth Festival concert, providing “true insight into Led Zeppelin”. Coordinating the conversation was J.J. Jackson, then of KLOS Radio in Los Angeles and later one of the first MTV VJ’s. The project got so far as a cover being designed by Led Zeppelin’s record company and a number was assigned (Swan Song PR-342) for production to continue. However the venture was scrapped and other than a very few test pressings, records were never manufactured; all covers were destroyed except just three that are known to exist!

This cover (and the other two known to exist) all came from the private collection of an employee who was working at Atlantic Records in the 1970’s; a letter on record company stationary confirms that “These came from the Atlantic Production Department. The album was never issued and the remainder of the jackets were destroyed.”
