Some Led Zeppelin rough studio mixes are up for grabs.  Two ten-inch reel tapes from the band's sessions for "Physical Graffiti" are part of an upcoming RR Auction sale. 

One tape features early renditions of six songs including "Kashmir" -- titled at the time "Driving to Kashmir" -- "Trampled Underfoot," and this version of "In The Light." 

The second tape has four songs, including "Sick Again" and "Ten Years Gone."  Both tapes are from the personal collection of studio engineer Ron Nevison, who worked on the album with the band.  But these aren't the only Nevison tapes, or the only pieces of Zeppelin memorabilia included in the auction. 

Rough mix recordings from Bad Company's debut album and "Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert" are also part being sold, along with tapes, acetates, and test pressings from a number of stars including Ozzy Osbourne, Jefferson Starship, Dave Mason, and UFO. 

Other Zeppelin items include tour programs, autographed albums, and an autographed guitar.  The sale also features memorabilia from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and others.  RR Auction's "Marvels of Modern Music" sale will run from March 13th through the 20th.  Item previews and other details are available at www.rrauction.com
