Led Zeppelin started out as a blues-rock band and then evolved into one of the greatest rock bands ever. Their songs are known for their heavy sound and complex musical arrangement. In 1975, Led Zeppelin was touring America when director Peter Clifton suggested that they record a live album to be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The band agreed and shot the concert film for The Song Remains The Same which included footage from three nights of concerts including their performance on 27 July 1973 at Madison Square Garden in New York City where they performed eighteen songs including several from their album Houses of The Holy which was released earlier that year.”

The film was originally intended to be a modestly budgeted feature film that would accompany Led Zeppelin’s ninth studio album Presence (1976). Before filming began, however, it became apparent that none of the material recorded during rehearsals could be used on either project so they decided to shoot additional footage instead. The resulting film features live performances of songs spanning their entire career which are interspersed with sequences depicting fantasy stories loosely based on the song arrangements.

The film and album were commercially successful, both receiving positive reviews from critics.

The film shows Zeppelin playing a set which included “Over the Hills and Far Away” (from Houses of the Holy), “Dazed and Confused”, “Stairway to Heaven” (both from Led Zeppelin IV), as well as three songs from their upcoming album Physical Graffiti: “Celebration Day”, “Houses of the Holy” and “Trampled Under Foot”.

The album was a commercial success, peaking at number seven on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States, and number two on the UK Albums Chart. In 1998 it was remastered and reissued by Virgin Records.

In 1991, Jimmy Page purchased the rights to all of Led Zeppelin’s material from Warner Bros. Records (except for their debut single “Good Times Bad Times”, originally issued by Atlantic Records) and took over as his own record label’s president; later that year he reactivated Swan Song Records as an imprint of Atlantic Records.

Among fans, critical response to the album has been mixed, with some feeling that it did not live up to expectations.

While many fans of the band were excited to hear new material, some were disappointed by the album. In a 2002 review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine noted that despite its strong set list and high-quality production values “Physical Graffiti” fails to provide an “epic experience” like Led Zeppelin’s previous albums had delivered. Robert Christgau shared this view as well, saying that while it does have good songs on it (such as “Kashmir”) they aren’t as good as those on Led Zeppelin IV.

Some critics feel that Physical Graffiti is actually better than expected from the band at this point in their careers. Colin Meloy lists it among his favorite albums; he describes Zep’s songs here as “fantastic.”
