Led Zeppelin ‘IV’ Makes Return to Billboard 200 After 25 Years
Last week Led Zeppelin fans celebrated the band’s iconic fourth album’s 40th birthday. If you dusted off your original vinyl copy and bought a new needle for the occasion, one thing is for certain: you weren’t alone.
Many Led Zeppelin fans also took advantage of special pricing for the album set for the occasion, moving the package into the Billboard 200 for the first time in 25 years.
The album, commonly referred to as IV, the Untitled Fourth Album, or The Zoso Record spent four weeks at No. 2 upon it’s release in 1971, but according to Billboard.biz got only as high as No. 166 this time.
