No matter how many times you may have listened to their music, youíve never
heard Led Zeppelin like this before.
Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant
touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in
1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened
with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London's Olympic Studios to
begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as "Immigrant Song"
and "Since I've Been Loving You," the album soared to the top of charts
worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x
The nine tracks featured on Led Zeppelin III's companion audio continue to offer
a window into the band's recording process with seven studio outtakes of songs
from the album as well as three previously unheard compositions: "Jennings Farm
Blues" (an instrumental forerunner of "Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp"), "Bathroom Sound" (an
instrumental version of "Out On The Tiles"), and their take on the blues
classics "Keys To The Highway/Trouble In Mind."
In 1968, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant formed Led
Zeppelin, one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in
modern music. The band has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide with a
celebrated catalog including such landmark songs as "Whole Lotta Love,"
"Kashmir," "Rock And Roll," "When The Levee Breaks" and "Stairway To Heaven."
The band rose from the ashes of The Yardbirds, when Page brought in Plant,
Bonham and Jones to tour as The New Yardbirds. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released
its self-titled debut. It marked the beginning of a 12-year reign, during which
the group was widely considered to be the biggest rock band in the world.
Led Zeppelin continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The
band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy
Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar
Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant - along with
Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham - took the stage at London's O2 Arena in
2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic
Records' founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American
culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won
their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live
performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album.
