Led Zeppelin’s Houses of The Holy – from Definitive Collection Box Set (Mini LP Replica; Box set, Limited Edition, Original recording remastered)

Album number five released on 28 March 1973, the album title is a dedication by the band to their fans who appeared at venues they dubbed “Houses of the Holy”.  The band sold 11 million copies of this album in the US.

Much of this album was recorded in Spring 1972 at Stargroves, the country estate in Berkshire which was owned by Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger!  The albums element was a departure from the bluesy feel of previous albums.  A healthy dose of keyboards on “Rain Song” to reggae tinged “D’yer Mak’er” and folky acoustic on “Over the hills and far away”, this Zep album is diverse.

Best tracks on the album – opening track “The song remains the same”, “Over the hills and far away” and “The Ocean”.
