Background: Released in 1976, Presence was the seventh studio album by Led Zeppelin.
The album reached #1 on both the U.S. and the UK charts.
Created at a time of intense turmoil for Led Zeppelin — they scrapped a planned international tour in the wake of Robert Plant’s car accident in Greece in August 1975 — Presence is a strange, misshapen beast of a record that pulls upon its own tension. With Plant somewhat on the sidelines — he recorded many of the vocals while in a wheelchair — Jimmy Page reasserted himself as the primary creative force in the band, helping steer Presence toward a guitar-heavy complexity, perched halfway between a return to roots and unfettered prog…. Added together, Presence winds up as something less than the sum of its parts but its imbalance also means that it’s a record worth revisiting; it seems different upon each revisit and is always compelling.
