Led Zeppelin "Led Zeppelin IV"

Led Zeppelin “Led Zeppelin IV” | The untitled fourth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV, was released on 8 November 1971 by Atlantic Records.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.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.

Recording sessions for the album began at Island Records' Basing Street Studios, London in December 1970.The group had considered Mick Jagger's home, Stargroves as a recording location, but decided it was too expensive.They subsequently moved the following month to Headley Grange, a country house in Hampshire, England, using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio and engineer Andy Johns, with the Stones' Ian Stewart assisting.

The album is one of the best-selling albums of all time with more than 37 million copies sold as of 2014.As of 2018 It is tied for third highest-certified album in the US by the Recording Industry Association of America at 23× Platinum.
