    More Info

    Shortly after their first tour, the group's eponymous first album was recorded at London's Olympic Studios in suburban Barnes in November 1968 and cut in thirty hours at a cost of 1,700. Between them they wrote six of the nine tracks. The distorted amplification of blues and rock was groundbreaking. The ferociously formidable sound of the group meant that their manager, Peter Grant, could go to the New York offices of Atlantic Records and strike a five-year distribution deal reportedly involving an initial payment of $200,000. What's more, under the landmark deal, the band acquired not only total creative control but control of jacket artwork, press ads, publicity photos, and anything else concerning their image as well.

    The band toured North America to help stimulate sales of the initial album. 'White label' copies of the debut album were sent out to key press reviewers, radio programmers and sundry trend spotters. Finally, on January 12, 1969, the album was officially released to the public. Led Zeppelin hit the Billboard charts at number 99. From 99, the album jumped to 40, then 28, and then stayed in the Top-20 for some time. It reached a high of number ten on 17 May, and remained on the charts for a phenomenal duration of 73 consecutive weeks, almost a year and a half.
