The Making of Led Zeppelin's IV

The Making of Led Zeppelin IV
The Making of Led Zeppelin's by Robert Godwin is a thoroughly exhausting discovery into every aspect of Led Zeppelin's fourth untitled album.

This softbound book starts off right away, diving into some of the band's most mysterious aspects, the four symbols. From John Bonham's symbol that looks like the Ballantine Beer logo, to John Paul Jones' man-woman-child-themed logo, to Robert Plant's Ra symbol to the eternally unknown Zoso, everything gets explained, with historical documentation.

Godwin also displays different album covers and singles covers from different countries, as well a history of the recording of the album, with interview snippets from the people that were there, a history of Headley Grange, the old house in which most of the album was recorded in as well as a description of how the epic Stairway To Heaven was created.

Around the time that the fourth album was released, Led Zeppelin had finished their Return To The Clubs tour, another US tour, a trip to Japan and were about to start a tour through England. A chapter on these tours that featured songs from the fourth album is chronologed.

Finally, a listing, a description and a bit of history is told about each track in the album.

This book should have a rightful place in every Led Zeppelin fanatic's bookcase. It contains 112 pages of pure facts, no bloat.
