Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy LP. It was 1979 and my parents bought me a Fisher combo with a record player, a tape deck and some small speakers of some unknown origin. It wasn't much but it was all they could afford at the time and I was extremely grateful. My father did not buy anything for himself and he was also very much into music. So even then I knew a sacrifice was made.

I remember my first small record collection well. I had a dozen or so records and mostly Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Meat Loaf and AC/DC. I really did not know much American music outside of rock, pop and disco back when I was barely a teenager. I got into the Blues and Jazz later in my 20's

Houses of the Holy.....great record and awesome first! The Classic Records pressing of H.O.T.H. is one of the best sounding classic rock LPs I own. The dynamics are off the charts.

This is the album you want with max DR of 16. There is nothing better.

US Robert Ludwig Pressing Has Robert Ludwig "RL" + STERLING Mastering Markings in Dead Wax.
LP Robert Ludwig US Deadwax: (SIDE ONE) ST-A-732783-D DD-I-III AT STERLING RL D PR (SIDE TWO) ST-A-732784-E EE-I-III AT STERLING RL PR D

Of course between Tidal and Qobuz, there are at least 9 album versions in various resolution. I am more than OK with it these days.

Serge - Have both a RL and the Classic.....RL isn't as good....not gonna go as far to use the audiophile term "blows it away" (it doesn't), but it is quite a bit better.

I was talking about dynamic range. I am not sure what other differences there are between the classic and Bob Ludwig pressing. As far as average and maximum DR, the RL pressing is best.
