Coda was the ninth and unfortunately the last studio album by the gods of rock. It was released in 1982 two years after the group had officially broken up following the death of John Bonham. This record was a collection of outtakes from various sessions during the band’s twelve-year career. The word Coda means a passage that ends a musical piece following the main body, was therefore chosen as a title.
This record was released to officially issue some of their tracks that were being bootlegged by Zeppelin fans coupled with the fact that the band owed their label one more album, and Coda fulfilled their obligation.
