Originally 'Untitled' it became known as Led Zeppelin IV and became a critical and commercial monster

Following the critical and commercial disappointment of Led Zeppelin III, the band regrouped and went for broke on the fourth album. They scored. With “Black Dog”, “Rock & Roll” and the ubiquitous “Stairway To Heaven”, the album was a smash both with critics and fans and went on to become one of the best selling albums in rock & roll history. 45 years later, it endures as a landmark album. I went with “Misty Mountain Hop” and we get the (stellar) cover from Heart.
