On February 24, 1975, 35 years ago, Led Zeppelin released Physical Graffiti – a double album that is perhaps one of the finest representations of this iconic band’s music. From Jimmy Page’s blistering guitar virtuosity, to Robert Plant’s wailing vocal improvisations, to the rock-solid rhythm section of John Paul Jones on bass guitar and John Bonham on drums, the album is simply a master class in the art of hard rock.
Featuring tracks such as the Moroccan-influenced epic, “Kashmir,” Physical Graffiti quickly captured the #1 spot on numerous album charts in the US and UK. To date, more than 8-million copies have been sold (16x Platinum). Here is a cool video that features the location where the memorable album cover art was photographed.
