Vinyl Selection: ‘Led Zeppelin IV’ by Led Zeppelin
Known as Led Zeppelin IV, Zoso, Four Symbols… This untitled album written and recorded in late 1970 and early 1971, has become one of the most dissected albums in all of music, as well as one of the best selling. One of the more curious aspects of the record was not that it went untitled, but WHY it went untitled.
It was an interesting time for the group, who at the time were still battling for respect from the media. Jimmy Page rarely gave an interview in that year and a half time period around this album and was quoted saying “After all we had accomplished, the press was still calling us a hype. So that is why the fourth album was untitled.”
