Japan JL 5XX Copy Series: JL-501 to JL-510

It is easy to determine the start of this series based on the first title copied: Led zeppelin’s DETROIT JUST ABOUT BACK on Contraband, recorded 31 January 1975 and released around spring 1975 as CBM 1046 (sandwiched between the two George Harrison titles CHICAGO and MORE FROM THE TOUR ).

This would place this copy into the second half of 1975 or even early 1976.
