There's A Treat At The Top

Finally an album with a real title! Houses wraps up Zep's first five. Physical Grafitti would be a couple of years away.

Not their best, but plenty of concert faves here.

Zep made millions on records and tours, but when Bonzo died in 1980 the band died too.
Page did movie music, Plant returned to his folky ways with Alison Krauss, and JPJ went back to production work.
