    More Info

    Their third album, Led Zeppelin III, was written in Bron-Yr-Aur, a remote cottage in Wales. It was acoustic and semi-acoustic material with Celtic mysticism thrown into the pot as well. Work continued at an old Hampshire stately home called Headley Grange. During the sessions, they played some European dates, including a spectacular show at Frankfurt's Festhalle where they broke all existing attendance records by drawing some 11,000 fans.

    Page mixed the album in the US during August 1970 when the band returned for their fifth tour. The band now commanded a minimum fee of $25,000 per performance, and they decided to cease working with any opening acts, thereby allowing the band to extend their appearances. At New York's Madison Square Garden on 19 September, Led Zeppelin for the first time grossed in excess of $100,000 for a single performance.

    Led Zeppelin III was released by Atlantic on 5 October 1970 with advance orders in excess of 700,000 copies in America and more than 60,000 in the UK. In only its second week, it shot to number one and stayed there for a month. Over time, its chart duration wasn't as favourable as the first two albums but compared with other acts of the time like the Rolling Stones the sales were still good.
