Footnotes

The nascent Led Zeppelin undertook their first UK tour in October 1968, still billed as the New Yardbirds, playing their first gig as Led Zeppelin in London on 25th October. Despite their first (LZ) US tour at the end of that year and the first album being released in January 1969, when this contract was drawn up there was obviously still some confusion in the US about the band's name.
