#64 is bugging me and I don't have the vinyl to check but I'll guess it's part of some of the interior collage on Joe's Garage acts 2&3?

Sorry no, #64 is not from any of the Joe's Garage Series, nor is it FZ.
(There are 5+ FZ or FZ-related albums still left Unsolved, though! :) )

64. ** Solved below by Shrewnews! **

Arkay, what pressing of BWS is that? I've never seen the insert in a square format like that.

Don't you just love the irony of the fuckwit who put a "perfect condition" sticker on the cover and rendered it imperfect?

Definitely, polydigm. Writing names on jackets sucks too. Was there a wave of vinyl thieves in the 70s, stealing used records? "Yes, judge, that is my name on the jacket. Thank you for getting it back for me!"

... For BWS, I'll get that info...

Ahh, so it's a Canadian pressing. Very cool! Neat tricolor label, too. Now I want to find a copy.

Awesome. One of my fav Close-Up images so far. I thought this one would get solved right away since LZIII is a natural for this kinda game. I didn't notice til after I posted it that there are several of these birds in the artwork between front and back covers. The one I took is bottom left.

#2 Led Zeppelin - III
