No stranger to being #1 on the charts 'Houses of the Holy' hit that ranking as well in both U.S. and U.K. and sold over 11 million copies (in the U.S. alone).

In this album it was the first and last that came with printed lyrics inside. The singles, "D'yer Mak'r" and "Over The Hills and Far Away"were the only two from the album that charted.
