Led Zeppelin revisit 1972 on 50th anniversary series

Led Zeppelin revisit 1972 on the latest episode of their 50th anniversary video series.

Fallowing its fall 1971 release, “Led Zeppelin IV” begins the new year at the top of the US and Canadian album charts.

In February, the band releases the track, “Rock And Roll”, as a single and play a two-week series of shows in Australia and New Zealand that would mark their only live appearances in the region.

By the spring, the outfit regroups for pre-production sessions and rehearsals for their next studio record before entering London’s Olympic Studios to begin recording what would become “Houses Of The Holy”, which wouldn’t surface until the following year.

After playing a pair of warm-up dates in Amsterdam and Brussels in late May, Led Zeppelin launches a month-long North American tour in Detroit, MI on June 6; the series would include two nights in New York and Seattle, while a pair of California dates late in the run would be recorded for a possible future release – going on to become the 2003 package, “How The West Was Won.”
