listenlive listicle Carters Catalog: Led Zeppelin Expands Their Sound With Physical Graffiti

In the latest edition of Carter’s Catalog, our own Carter Alan talks about Led Zeppelin’s classic 1975 double-album Physical Graffiti, which came out on February 24, 1975.

The band expanded on their blues-rock sound for the album, incorporating orchestras (“Kashmir”), funk influences (“Trampled Under Foot”), and more acoustic rock (“Black Country Woman”). They are clearly very proud of the record, as Robert Plant has called it his favorite Led Zeppelin album while Jimmy Page has described it as a “high watermark.”

Led Zeppelin had previously silenced their critics with their fourth album, and continued to prove them wrong on House of the Holy. But Physical Graffiti somehow took things to yet another level, and Page & Plant obviously believe so themselves.
