In , the band set up their own vanity label , Swan Song Records , which would release the rest of Led Zeppelin's studio albums. The first was the double album Physical Graffiti , which has received a 16 times platinum certification from RIAA.
The recording of the film took place during three nights of concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City , during the band's concert tour of the United States. This was the last album released by the band before Bonham died of alcohol intoxication in ; Led Zeppelin disbanded less than three months later. In Led Zeppelin released the album Coda , a compilation of outtakes from the band's previous recordings. Since their break-up, the band have released numerous compilation and live albums from older concerts, including How the West Was Won , which peaked at number one on the Billboard charts, and the compilation album Mothership , which produced seven music downloads and was released on the same day Led Zeppelin's entire catalog became available in digital stores, including in the iTunes Store.

Retrieved 6 October It was played intermittently throughout the group's career, often as an encore. It was recorded live in the studio, and arranged in a slower and more laid-back style compared to some of the other material on the album.
The song was improvised around an old Howlin' Wolf number, " How Many More Years ", and a Page guitar riff, which developed spontaneously into a jam session. The track includes a bolero section similar to Jeff Beck's " Beck's Bolero " which was written by and featured Page , and segues into "Rosie" and " The Hunter " which were improvised during recording.
Page played the guitar with the violin bow in the middle section of the track, similar to "Dazed and Confused". They were released on the reissue of the retrospective album Coda.
Led Zeppelin ' s front cover, which was chosen by Page, features a black-and-white image of the burning Hindenburg airship, photographed by Sam Shere on 6 May , during the Hindenburg disaster. The back cover features a photograph of the band taken by Dreja. The entire design of the album's sleeve was coordinated by George Hardie , with whom the band would continue to collaborate for future sleeves. Page declined but it was retained as the logo for the back cover of Led Zeppelin's first two albums and a number of early press advertisements.
When it was switched to the orange print later that year, the turquoise-printed sleeve became a collector's item. The album cover gained further widespread attention when, at a February gig in Copenhagen, the band were billed as "the Nobs" as the result of a legal threat from aristocrat Eva von Zeppelin a relative of the creator of the Zeppelin aircraft. Von Zeppelin, upon seeing the logo of the Hindenburg crashing in flames, threatened legal action over the concert taking place.
The image did a pretty good job of encapsulating the music inside: sex, catastrophe and things blowing up. It also called Plant "as foppish as Rod Stewart , but nowhere near so exciting". Eventually, their reputation as a good live band recovered by word-of-mouth. Rock journalist Cameron Crowe noted years later: "It was a time of 'super-groups', of furiously hyped bands who could barely cut it, and Led Zeppelin initially found themselves fighting upstream to prove their authenticity.
However, press reaction to the album was not entirely negative. In Britain the album received a glowing review in Melody Maker. Musicianship, in other words, was really incidental to such music, but the music did have real strength and validity: a combination of showmanship and overwhelming physical force. The album was a commercial success. It was initially released in the US on 12 January to capitalise on the band's first North American concert tour.
Before that, Atlantic Records had distributed a few hundred advance white label copies to key radio stations and reviewers. A positive reaction to its contents, coupled with a good reaction to the band's opening concerts, resulted in the album generating 50, advance orders.
The album's success and influence is widely acknowledged, even by publications that were initially sceptical. In , Rolling Stone commented on the originality of the music, and Zeppelin's heavy style, comparing them to Cream, Jimi Hendrix , the MC5 and the Stooges , but reiterated that they had mass appeal.
The album was described as a "brilliant if heavy-handed blues-rock offensive" by popular music scholar Ronald Zalkind. The same year, the album was ranked 29th on Rolling Stone ' s Greatest Albums of All Time their highest charting album on the list ; an accompanying blurb read: "Heavy metal still lives in its shadow,"  maintaining the rating in a revised list,  and ranked st in a revised list.
When he was cutting the first Zeppelin album, he knew what he wanted. His vision was so much more global than Jeff and Eric's. The reissue was met with widespread critical acclaim. At Metacritic , which assigns a normalised rating out of to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 97, based on 10 reviews.
He was critical of the bonus disc, however, believing it "remains inessential—the very definition of 'for completists only. Taken from the sleeve notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
