Weber Album of the Week
Led Zeppelin IV – Led Zeppelin
The untitled fourth studio album by Led Zeppelin, commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV, was released on November 8, 1971 by Atlantic Records.
It was produced by guitarist Jimmy Page and recorded between December 1970 and February 1971, mostly in the country house Headley Grange.
The informal setting at Headley Grange inspired the band, and allowed them to try different arrangements of material and create songs in a variety of styles.
After the band’s previous album Led Zeppelin III received lukewarm reviews from critics, they decided their fourth album would officially be untitled, and would be represented instead by four symbols chosen by each band member, without featuring the name or any other details on the cover.
The album was a commercial and critical success and is Led Zeppelin’s best-selling, shipping over 37 million copies worldwide. It is also one of the best-selling albums in the U.S.
