    The cover and inside sleeve, created by Hipgnosis with George Hardie, features images of people interacting with a black obelisk-shaped object. Inside the sleeve, the item is referred to simply as "The Object". It was intended to represent Zeppelin's "force and presence".[5][22] Hipgnosis co-founder Storm Thorgerson wrote that the obelisk represented the power of Led Zeppelin, saying they were "so powerful, they didn't need to be there".[23][24] Both Page and Plant have said that the presence of the object in the photographs made people stop and think about what is real, which reflected the music.[24]

    The background in the cover photograph is an artificial marina, installed in London's Earl's Court arena for the annual Boat Show, in the winter of 1974–75. The band played a series of concerts at this venue in May 1975, a few months after the boat show. The inner sleeve photographs came from various archive stock pictures, and was designed to resemble a feature in National Geographic.[25] The girl on the back cover photo is the same one that appeared on Houses of the Holy.[22] Hipgnosis and Hardie were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Album Package in 1977.[26]

    Has anyone picked up the deluxe 45rpm version of Idles Crawler? Debating picking this up or the standard version. Any info is appreciated.

    I really wish that record sounded better.  Huge missed opportunity. 
  • 1ThoughtKnown1ThoughtKnown Posts: 4,864
    The second disc is good enough, but the mastering on the songs with the symphony isn’t stellar. Pressed at GZ so there is going to be surface noise. I’ve got a couple pops and crackles. 
    Still enjoyed it!

    One of the worst mastering jobs I have ever heard. Horribly muddy.

    Conversely, the cd is pretty decent. So it wasn’t the recording, it was later in the chain as you point out. Likely the mastering.

    does that assestment include the 2015 black version?

    Yes.  I had both (sold the black).  They didn't sound any different.

    I’ve heard worse mastering jobs… but agreed it was muddy. There was very little instrument separation and the soundstage was definitely lacking. 
    Again, the second disc without the symphony sounds better, probably only because there is significantly less going on. Whoever mastered this for vinyl needs some BL, KG, RKS, etc. lessons. 

    It is not so bad that I won’t listen to it. I’ve given records away that are simply ear bleeding.
