Over the last 2 weeks, I've purchased 5 magazines featuring Led Zeppelin. (Mojo, Guitar World, Rolling Stone (2), DRUM/John Bonham) I went searching for THIS one, after it was not found in time for Christmas. The local Barnes and Noble had ONE copy left, and it scooped it up. I have to say that out of all the magazines I purchased- this is a great read. Every page is Led Zeppelin. The entire catalog is discussed, and some in depth topics as well. This is worth every cent, if you are feeling the "Led Zeppelin fever" right now, I suggest you go out and buy this, if you can find it. Even if your not a fan/supporter of Rolling Stone, it's your loss if you don't pick it up.

I agree with you, just overlook that it's RS, if you can, and enjoy this! I've seen it everywhere, even at the Whole Foods checkout stand. :)

Wow, that pic looks like '75, I think that's the earliest picture I've ever seen of Jimmy with the b-bender Tele! Didn't think he'd used it in a live setting before '77, then obviously it became his main axe on the ARMS tour and The Firm.

It's not '75. It's from the Manticore rehersals in 1977. Also a fourm member told me that she doesn't remember seeing Jimmy with a cigarette before 1977.

HOUSES OF THE HOLY – IT WAS 40 YEARS AGO TODAY/RECORD COLLECTOR FEATURE/ EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH HIPGNOSIS SLEEVE DESIGNER AUBREY POWELL/ DL DIARY UPDATE

28 March 2013

Houses-at-40.jpg

Led Zeppelin Houses Of The Holy TBL 40th Anniverary Special:

40 years ago today Led Zeppelin released their long awaited fifth album, Houses Of The Holy.

We have been counting down to this milestone anniversary and the TBL website and Facebook page will be celebrating the album’s release over the next few days.

I myself have been getting intensely re acquainted living with Houses Of The Holy the album since January, as over the past three months I’ve been collating a major feature on the album for the new issue of Record Collector – that issue is now on sale

It includes the full story of the making of the album, an extensive worldwide album and singles discography compiled by Nick Anderson and we also answer the question whatever happened to Rosie and The Originals as well as spotlighting a rare over version of D’yer Ma’ker and discussing that elaborate sleeve design and more.

This issue of Record Collector is the perfect guide to have next to you as you re discover the album…seek it out today!

Talking of the sleeve…

Yesterday in London I conducted an exclusive interview for TBL with one of the designers of the Houses Of The Holy sleeve.

Aubrey Powell aka Po, co-founded the album cover design company Hipgnosis with Storm Thorgerson in 1967. Hipgnosis created some of the most innovative and surreal record cover art of the 1960s, 70s and 80s for many of the big name rock bands of the era including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Yes, Genesis, 10cc, Peter Gabriel, Bad Company, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Scorpions, Styx, Syd Barrett and Black Sabbath.

Hipgnosis were responsible for the Houses, Presence, The Song Remains The Same, In Through The Out Door and Coda sleeves. Po later moved into films and directed various Robert Plant and Firm videos –he also directed the No Quarter Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded film. He is currently working on a book of photographic portraits.

I met with him yesterday nigh on 40 years to the day of the releases of what he considers one of very best designs they created. This exclusive interview with Aubrey Powell, in which he discusses his working association with Led Zeppelin over the years will be one of the highlights of the next TBL magazine.

On this 40th anniversary I asked Po to summarise what the Houses Of The Holy sleeve means to him…

Above -Aubrey Powell London – March 27th 2013.

”40 years on from completing this album cover, I’m still very proud of it. It’s one of the best works that Hipgnosis ever produced and it’s stood the test of time. Everybody still talks about it. You see in those polls of top ten album cover of all time , where Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon is always jockeying for a top three position with Houses Of The Holy.

I think the reason why it’s stood the test of time is that not only are Led Zeppelin the greatest rock band in the world but because the image is stirring.

People look at it and really wonder what it’s about. There’s a narrative in there …what are these children doing? Where are they going? What’s caused this? What’s this huge glow on the horizon? What’s the story with this? Then the inner cover the image of the guy holding the girl above his head – that also has that sort of fairy tale quality about it. It just grabs people’s imagination and it’s very unusual for an album cover. It’s very different and people seem to admire that image.

At Hipgnosis, we never felt that the work we did would go beyond the year that we did it, possibly because we were always so busy – we were probably doing three album covers a week for various different bands for 15 years. During the time I didn’t really have an opportunity to say ‘oh isn’t that great, you know in 40 years time people will look it and say gosh that was an extraordinary piece of work.’ All I know is that I just worked very hard and loved what I was doing and I enjoyed the people I worked for. I thank Led Zeppelin for giving us the opportunity to do these designs, because without them we would not have been able to so.

In my heart of heart of hearts, it very much represents that vinyl period of time – those 15 years of top quality vinyl graphics that we produced.

So yes…Houses Of The Holy all these years on, is a piece I’m particularly proud of’”

DON’T MISS OUT – THE SECOND EDITION IS A STRICTLY LIMITED RUN

HERE’S WHAT’S IN STORE:

Thirty two years ago over two weekends in August 1979, thousands of fans came to pay homage to Led Zeppelin as they performed what would be their last UK shows at Knebworth.

Dave Lewis chronicles this milestone event in rock history with the full story behind the band’s triumphant return to the stage – the build up to the event, the concerts themselves, the aftermath and the accompanying impact of their final studio album In Through The Out Door.

The book’s centrepiece is a collection of over thirty unique first hand recollections from fans who attended the Knebworth shows.

These vivid, humorous and often moving accounts capture the true spirit of the occasion.

The book includes:

*Foreword by Ross Halfin – who photographed Led Zeppelin at the August 11th 1979 Knebworth show and their 2007 reunion at the 02 Arena.

*Preface overview by Chris Charlesworth former Melody Maker Editor who had close access to the band in the 1970s.

*Build up to the event, the gigs themselves and aftermath summary.

*Over thirty unique first hand accounts from fans who proudly boast ‘’I was there…’’

*Original Knebworth review from the Tight But Loose magazine.

*Transcribes of interviews from the Knebworth era with Robert Plant and John Paul Jones including contents of the lost promo interview album.

*Detailed Knebworth bootleg discography by Graeme Hutchinson.

*Detailed In Through The Out Door world wide discography by Nick Anderson.

* Memorabilia focus with spotlight on Knebworth collectables from the Brian Knapp collection.

Hardback format 240 x 170mm

It all adds up to an engaging account that tells how Led Zeppelin came out to meet their post punk audience and reclaim their crown as the worlds number one rock attraction. These nostalgic recollections from out in the field capture the final days of a legendary band and the simpler more innocent times of the last great British festival gatherings of the 1970s.

I love this cover of Lid, but when I ordered this it had a different Zep cover. Did I miss out on this one and that was a replacement? Or did they decide to use a different photo? Or will this be the one that comes?
