November 23, 1968: Official press release issued, announcing the signing of Led Zeppelin on Atlantic Records. Press Report: “Jimmy Page’s new supergroup, Led Zeppelin, has signed a big deal with Atlantic and their first album, titled “Led Zeppelin”, unquestionably the finest album I and several other people have ever heard as a debut effort, will be released in January.” “Jimmy, who was in New York last week, looks all set to return (with Led Zeppelin) to the U.S. at the end of December. They’ll kick off what looks like a six week tour playing some dates with Vanilla Fudge.” [NME, 11-23-68] Official Press Release excerpt: ATLANTIC RECORDS SIGNS ENGLAND’S HOT NEW GROUP, LED ZEPPELIN, IN ONE OF THE BIGGEST DEALS OF THE YEAR Atlantic Records has signed the hot new English group, Led Zeppelin, to a long term, exclusive recording contract. Although the exact terms of the deal are secret, it can be disclosed that it is one of the most substantial deals Atlantic has ever made. Agreement for the group’s services was made between Jerry Wexler, Executive Vice President of Atlantic Records, Peter Grant, manager of the group. Led Zeppelin consists of four of the most exciting musicians performing in Britain today. They are Jimmy Page, leader of the group and lead guitarist; John Paul Jones, bassist, pianist, organist, arranger; John Bonham, drums; and Robert Plant, lead vocal and harmonica. The pulsations surrounding Led Zeppelin have intensified ever since the group recorded its first (and as yet unreleased) album, which was produced by Jimmy Page, just a month ago in London. Top English and American rock musicians who have heard the tracks have called Led Zeppelin the next group to reach heights achieved by Cream and Hendrix. This Led Zeppelin LP will be released by Atlantic early in January. #LZ50
