Led Zeppelin History – Nov 24

Today in 1972 mixing of Zeppelin’s fifth album, titled simply Led Zeppelin V at that point in time, was completed at Olympic Studios in London. The album would not be released though until March of 1973 (at which point it would be titled Houses of the Holy), to better coincide with a May 1973 US tour.

Most of the recording sessions had taken place in the spring of 1972 at Stargroves, Mick Jagger’s palatial home in Berkshire; the Stones’ mobile studio was wheeled into place, and the band took flight. Jmmy Page: “When we went down there we had no set ideas; it was simply a matter of getting together and letting it come out. I don’t think we ever had any stagnant periods”.
