The Flaming Star - Elvis* - Elvis Sings Flaming Star is a reflection of the personal turmoil that the band The Hook (All My Love) - Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door had been going through before and during its recording. Frontman Robert Plant and his wife had gone through a serious car accident, and their young son, Karac, died from a stomach illness, while all four band members also felt weary of dealing with record companies and other associates.
The release became a huge commercial success, particularly in the United States sitting at the No. In Through the Out Door was the band's eighth and final studio release to reach the top of the charts in America. The album was named by the group to describe its recent struggles amidst the death of Robert Plant 's son Karac in and the taxation exile the band took from the UK.
The exile resulted in the band being unable to tour on British soil for over two years, and trying to get back into the public mind was therefore like "trying to get in through the 'out' door". The group began rehearsing material in Septemberand after six weeks they were ready to record material.
The group travelled to Polar Studios All In Love Is Fair - Barbra Streisand - Featuring The Hit Single The Way We Were And All In Love Is StockholmSweden to begin recording.
The Hook (All My Love) - Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door diminished input by Page and Bonham is attributed to the two band members often not showing up on time at the recording studio, with Bonham struggling with alcoholism and Page battling heroin addiction.
Following the recording sessions at Polar, the album was mixed at Page's personal studio at his home in Plumpton. All later appeared on Coda. The track features a contrast between the powerful riffs in the main part of the track, against a relatively quiet middle section.
Jones played piano on the track. The idea was inspired by Plant explaining that the group must explore new musical territory in order to remain current. Page played his Gibson EDS double neck guitar, which was normally only used for live performances. The group had intended to play the song live for the planned US tour, which was cancelled after Bonham's death.
Jones played a classically inspired synthesizer solo in the middle of the track. Plant arranged the track to be in the style of mids soul music such as Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. Jones contributed a string synthesizer arrangement.
The original album featured an unusual gimmick: the album had an outer sleeve which was made to look like a plain brown paper bag reminiscent of similarly packaged bootleg album sleeves with the title rubber-stamped on itand the inner sleeve featured black and white line artwork which, if washed with water, would become permanently fully coloured.
There were also six different sleeves featuring a different pair of photos one on each sideand the external brown paper sleeve meant that it was impossible for record buyers to tell which sleeve they were getting.
The walls are covered with thousands of yellowed business cards and dollar bills. The album artwork was designed by Hipgnosis ' Storm Thorgerson. The album was intended to be released before the band's twin concerts at Knebworth inbut production delays meant that it was released shortly after their performances at this event, on 20 August.
The album went to No. To date, the album has sold six million copies in the US. In Through the Out Door divided contemporary critics and Led Zeppelin fans; some found its synthesizer-influenced music inevitable but forward-thinking while others felt the band had forsaken their heavy, fast sound.
Reviewing the album in Rolling StoneCharles M. Young said Page's diminishing creativity resulted in little good material to work with for Plant, whose lyrics Young found inane, and Bonham, whose drumming was viewed as heavy handed.
This brought to the forefront the keyboard playing of Jones, who Young said "functions best behind Page, not in front of him". In A Vacuum - Noir - Noir (Vinyl, Album) contrast, NME journalist Nick Kent argued that the album was "no epitaph", believing its "potential points of departure" deserved further listening.
He said "the tuneful synthesizer pomp on side two confirms my long-held belief that this is a real good art-rock band", while "the lollapalooza hooks on the first side confirms the world's long-held belief that this is a real good hard rock band".
Following Air Condition - Freda Kväll På Järnvägs album's release, Plant, Page and Bonham all expressed reservations about the record.
Plant later said that he enjoyed the variation in styles from previous albums, though he appreciated the album was "a bit sanitised". Of course, we never got to make that album. I think it was very transitional Drummer John Bonham died the next year on 25 September In The Rolling Stone Album GuideGaylord Fields said the album was "maligned upon its release a retreat from heaviness" but "now stands as an art-rock oddity with some alluring tangents".
The deluxe and super deluxe editions feature bonus material containing alternative takes and alternatively titled tracks, " Southbound Piano ", " The Epic ", " The Hook ", and " Blot ". The reissue was released with a black and white version of the original album's artwork as its bonus disc's cover. The reissue was met with generally positive reviews.
