This Year marked the 40th anniversary of “Houses of the Holy” and we’re celebrating.
After the behemoth that was Led Zeppelin IV, Led Zep were under pressure to maintain their status as stadium-filling Rock Gods. However, instead of producing an entire album of their trademark hard rock/blues/folk sound, the band decided to experiment a bit. They had matured as musicians and “Houses of the Holy” sees each of the band members getting their spot in the limelight and features some of their best playing. They also took cues from other musical styles such as the James Brown tribute “The Crunge” and the reggae-infused “D’yer Mak’er”. Read more about the album here.

Join us for the two hour musical lead-up featuring music that either inspired or was contemporary to this LP such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, James Brown, George Harrison and Black Sabbath. Then we relay the story behind the album. Finally its lights down, volume up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi.
