Presence (album)

Presence is a studio album by Led Zeppelin, released by Swan Song Records on March 31, 1976. This album was conceived after Robert Plant sustained serious injuries from a car accident on Rhodes, Greece, August 5, 1975 which postponed a planned 1975/76 world tour by Led Zeppelin. During his convalescent period on Malibu[?], Plant with Jimmy Page, had written enough material for rehersals to begin at Hollywood's SIR Studio. The album was recorded within three weeks at Musicland Studios in Munich, Germany, with Plant in a wheelchair. Both Page and Plant had planned the album to be a return to a simple spontaneous affair after the complex arrangements on Houses of The Holy[?] and Physical Graffiti.

The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard's Pop Albums chart.
