В 1975 год Led Zeppelin вступили самой популярной группой мира. Результаты продаж пластинок и билетов на концерты были настолько впечатляющи, что этот негласный титул даже никем не оспаривался! Годом ранее музыканты учредили собственный рекорд-лейбл «Swan Song», названный так по неизданной инструментальной композиции Джимми Пейджа. Первым релизом и стал двойной альбом отцов-основателей — «Physical Graffiti», вышедший 24 февраля 1975 г. (записывать его музыканты начали аж в ноябре 1973-го в поместье Хэдли Грейндж, в передвижной студии басиста «The Faces» Ронни Лейна). Предварительные заказы на эту пластинку составили сумму в 15 млн. долларов, так что не удивительно, что она моментально оказалась на 1-м месте хит-парада и стала четырежды «платиновой». Именно на «Physical Graffiti» можно найти «визитную карточку» группы — песню «Kashmir«, где Джимми Пейдж демонстрирует мастерство игры на ситаре, «Houses of The Holy«, так и не ставшую титульной композицией предыдущего альбома, и чартовый суперхит «Trampled Underfoot«.
