    More Info

    Following the third album being mauled by an intense media slagging, and the band's image also being subjected to catty remarks, the band decided to ensure that nothing would come between the listener and the music. Their manager, Peter Grant, announced that the band had decided the fourth album would have no title, no mention of the group on the outside jacket, and no record company logos or catalogue numbers and credits. Unsurprisingly, Atlantic weren't happy but the landmark jacket design was reluctantly approved. The actual credits for the album, its track listings, and the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven are contained on the inner paper sleeve - marking the first time Led Zeppelin had refrained from the conventional Atlantic catalogue promo sleeve. And it was the first time the band had utilised a lyric sheet.

    Page at this time had a growing infatuation with the occult philisophy of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) and this, combined with Plant's growing fascination with Celtic mysticism, led to the most striking and obvious feature on the fourth album, four very mysterious symbols above the track listings. Each band-member chose a metaphorical-type symbol which represented each one of them individually.

    The untitled and unadorned fourth album was finally released on 8 November 1971, almost thirteen months to the day since the release of the third album. Strangely, it never reached the number one position of the US charts though it remained on the charts longer than any previous Led Zeppelin album (eventually becoming their biggest seller). It peaked at number two.

    It stayed on the charts the first time around for 39 weeks, dropping off briefly and then returning in the autumn of 1972. By May 1975, the album was still in the top 60 after more than three years on the chart.

    Predictably, Atlantic wanted Stairway to Heaven to be released as a single in the US, even after Black Dog had been released and only reached 47. Grant and the band were having none of it, but the rock media came to sniffily refer to the record as the 'Stairway album'.
