U.S. Singles

In the United States ten seven inch singles were released (along with the nine studio albums & one soundtrack album), all of which were more or less identical to their foreign pressed counterparts. Because the U.S. versions of the singles had plain sleeves (containing only a variety of text designs to identify them as being on the Atlantic label) I have included various other sleeves from around the world.

The band did not release any singles in the U.K., although in August 1997 a CD maxi-single was issued, coupling a new edit of "Whole Lotta Love" (4:50) (which is different from the 1969 edit) with "Baby Come On Home" & "Travelling Riverside Blues", to coincide with the budget CD re-issues of the nine original studio albums. A video was also released, featuring footage from various sources. It was available as a regular silver CD (Atlantic 84014-6/AT0013CD) and as a limited-edition gold CD (Atlantic 84014-2/A4014CD).
