Special notes: This untitled fourth studio album by Led Zeppelin is commonly referred to as Led Zeppelin IV. The album was released on 8 November 1971 on Atlantic Records. Produced by guitarist Jimmy Page, it was recorded between December 1970 and March 1971 at several locations, most prominently the Victorian house Headley Grange. After the group’s 1970 album Led Zeppelin III received lukewarm reviews from critics, Page decided their fourth album would officially be untitled. This, along with the inner sleeve’s design featuring four symbols that represented each band member, led to the album being referred to variously as the Four Symbols logo, Four Symbols, The Fourth Album, Untitled, Runes, The Hermit, and ZoSo (which was derived from Page’s symbol). In addition to lacking a title, the original cover featured no band name, as the group wished to be anonymous and to avoid easy pigeonholing by the press. Led Zeppelin IV was a commercial and critical success, producing many of the band’s best-known songs, including “Black Dog”, “Rock and Roll”, “Misty Mountain Hop”, “Going to California”, and the band’s signature song, “Stairway to Heaven”.
