leave a comment »

The fourth album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin was released on November 8, 1971. No title is printed on the album, so it is generally referred to as Led Zeppelin IV. Upon its release, Led Zeppelin IV was a commercial and critical success. It may be most notable for featuring the famous song, “Stairway To Heaven.” The album is one of the best-selling albums worldwide at 32 million units. It has shipped over 23 million units in the United States alone, making it the third-best-selling album ever in the US. In 2003, the album was ranked 66th on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
