Background: Released in 1979, In Through the Out Door was the eighth and final studio album from Led Zeppelin.
The album was released with six different covers, labeled on the spine with the letters A-F.
The album reached #1 on both the U.S. and UK album charts.
Led Zeppelin decided to push into new sonic territory on their eighth album, In Through the Out Door. A good deal of this aural adventurism derived from internal tensions within the band. Jimmy Page and John Bonham were in the throes of their own addictions, leaving Plant and John Paul Jones alone in the studio to play with the bassist’s new keyboard during the day. Jones wound up with writing credits on all but one of the seven songs — the exception is “Hot Dog,” a delightfully dirty rockabilly throwaway — and he and Plant are wholly responsible for the cloistered, grooving “South Bound Saurez” and “All My Love,” a synth-slathered ballad unlike anything in Zeppelin’s catalog due not only to its keyboards but its vulnerability.
