    More Info

    Following the death of Robert Plant's son, things naturally ground to a halt for the band. It took until December 1978 for the music tabloids to report the band had been ensconced at the Polar Studios in Stockholm, a facility owned by the Swedish Europop group, Abba. It would be the first time that John Paul Jones would be the primary composer of all but one track (Hot Dog), and his keyboard skills can be heard throughout the album. He also played a much larger production role in the ninth album, In Through the Out Door.

    To coincide with the album's August 1979 release date, and to prove that the band were not old superfarts made irrelevant in the face of punk, the band played two dates at Knebworth. 264,000 tickets sold within two days! And the fans were left ecstatic by what they saw. They were the band's final live performances of the 1970s.

    Advance promo copies of In Through the Out Door were delivered to radio stations across America on 20 August, and one million were in the nation's record stores a couple of days later. The first five million units were sold in two days, and retail re-orders within five days surged to an additional 700,000 copies. Within seven days In Through the Out Door had become Led Zeppelin's sixth number one album, and its fifth to debut on US charts in the top ten. It held down the number one spot for seven weeks. And their entire back catalogue resurfaced on the Billboard Top 200.

    Packaging wise, the album was unusual. It had six slightly different sleeves, variations of a theme within a paper bag.
