Re: Atlantic/live Zep



Yes, we carried them all, Europe and U.S..
We still do, firstly because we want to be as complete as possible.
Secondly, i'm the buyer for the pop/rock/metal departments and i quite like
the band and the idea behind it all.
We sold them in figures around 5-25, the last figure for the "band approved"
ones.
