Album cover design: Hipgnosis

Hipgnosis was an English art group founded in 1968 by Storm Thorgerson, Aubrey Powell, and Peter Christopherson. The group was known for their innovative and creative album covers, which became iconic in the music industry. Hipgnosis worked with some of the most influential musicians of their time, including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Yes.


The group's name, "Hipgnosis," was a play on the words "hypnosis" and "hip." They believed that their art had the power to hypnotize people and transport them to another world, which was reflected in their album covers. The group's style was surreal and often incorporated elements of fantasy, science fiction, and the occult. Their designs were highly detailed and often required extensive planning and preparation.

One of the group's most famous album covers was for Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon." The cover featured a prism refracting light into a rainbow, which became one of the most recognizable images in rock history. The design was so successful that it became synonymous with the band and their music. Another iconic design was for Led Zeppelin's "Houses of the Holy," which featured a group of naked children climbing on a rock formation. The image was highly controversial but helped to solidify the band's rebellious image.

Hipgnosis also worked with a number of other influential musicians, including Peter Gabriel, Black Sabbath, and Genesis. They designed the cover for Peter Gabriel's first solo album, which featured a photograph of Gabriel wearing a mask with only his eyes visible. The image became another iconic design and was later referenced in Gabriel's music video for "Sledgehammer."

The group's success continued into the 1980s, with designs for bands such as Scorpions and Styx. However, the rise of digital technology and the decline of album sales led to the group's decline. Hipgnosis disbanded in 1983, but their legacy lives on in the countless album covers they created.

Hipgnosis was not just an art group, but a collective of artists who had a significant impact on the music industry. Their innovative designs helped to define the visual style of rock music in the 1970s and 1980s. Their work was not just a complement to the music, but an essential part of the overall experience. They created a world that fans could enter into and lose themselves in, just like the music they were listening to.

Transcript of the Liner Notes by Cameron Crowe

The exact city has faded, but the isolated moment is still clear. Somewhere on the East Coast during Led Zeppelin's most recent tour of America, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant were speeding from the stage to their touring plane. Now, heading down the runway to the next stop, they collapsed in exhausted heaps around the on-board video tape machine. Little Richard was on the screen, bashing his piano keys, rocking the bandstand and howling "Tutti Frutti" in the 1957 classic film The Girl Can't Help It. Page watched, took a weary slug of Jack Daniel's, and began to grin. "You know something?", he toasted. "No escaping our roots." -Three years later, with that credo very much in mind, Led Zeppelin have released a feature film of their own. The Song Remains the Same captures all the power and force of a Led Zeppelin concert from the ultimate vantage point.

The view is from the second row, the sound is as if the viewer were on stage. A multiple track play-back sends the music from every direction of the theatre. The tension takes hold immediately. The opening moments of The Song Remains The Same show the band gather in Britain, fly to the States, and pile into cars that will take them to a long-packed Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York City. The pace accelerates: there is no chance to rest. They hurtle down the free-ways: and then Zeppelin is on stage, tearing into the music, from "Rock and Roll" to "Whole Lotta Love"; it is some of their most blazing live material. Peter Clifton and Joe Massot have admirably captured the total event on celluloid. For the first time, a Led Zeppelin performance is not just a memory. The film as well as this soundtrack, can be experienced again and again.

The film, though, is much more than a movie of Led Zeppelin in concert: it is a rare series of glimpses into the visions and sym-bolism of the men who make the music. Fulfilling a long-held desire to express themselves in a cinematic setting, each band member and manager Peter Grant, have contributed their own "fantasy sequence". For the first time, one can view the images in Page's mind during "Dazed and Confused", see life breathed into "Stairway to Heaven" . . . It would be impossible to detail those sequences here. The band has never really discussed their concepts or reasons. Now it's easy to see why. It's been quite a ride since that first album was released in late '68, inventing a new repertoire, raw and brimming with fresh ideas and explorations into rock. Since then, Zeppelin's made six more albums, resulting in an ever-increasing legion of followers, whose loyalty can only be described as staggering, whilst the group record and live their music from L.A. to Kashmir. Now, their first adventure into cinema,

"The Song Remains the Same", is cinematic proof that amidst it all, while living the reflections of their music, they have neither forgotten nor denied that original premise - The Roots.

    The man behind "Stairway to Heaven" stepped out of Zeppelin's shadow. What happened next? Uncover the secrets of Robert Plant's solo legacy.

  • Jimmy Page - Guitars

    Jimmy Page, full-name: James Patrick Page, was born on 9 January 1944, in Heston, Middlesex, England. He is widely recognized as one of the greatest guitarists in the history of rock music. With his exceptional talent, innovative playing style, and songwriting skills, Page has left an indelible mark on the world of music.


    Page's interest in music began at a young age, and he started playing the guitar in his early teens. He was influenced by various genres, including blues, jazz, and rock 'n' roll. In his early career, Page played as a session musician, lending his guitar skills to numerous recording sessions for various artists. This helped him gain experience and develop his unique playing style.

    In the mid-1960s, Page became a member of the British rock band "The Yardbirds". Initially, he joined as a bassist, but his exceptional guitar skills soon led to his transition as the lead guitarist of the band. With Page on board, The Yardbirds achieved significant success and released several hit songs, including "For Your Love" and "Heart Full of Soul".

    However, it was Page's next endeavor that would establish him as a true rock icon. In 1968, he formed the legendary rock band "Led Zeppelin" along with vocalist Robert Plant, bassist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. Led Zeppelin quickly rose to prominence, becoming one of the most influential and successful rock bands of all time.

    Page's guitar playing in Led Zeppelin was nothing short of groundbreaking. His virtuosic solos, intricate riffs, and innovative use of guitar effects set a new standard for rock music. Led Zeppelin's albums, such as "Led Zeppelin" (1969), "Led Zeppelin II" (1969), and "Led Zeppelin IV" (1971), showcased Page's brilliance as a guitarist and songwriter. The band's energetic live performances further solidified their reputation as one of the greatest acts in rock history.

    Despite achieving immense success, Led Zeppelin disbanded in 1980 following the tragic death of John Bonham. Afterward, Page collaborated with various artists and pursued solo projects. He joined forces with Robert Plant and Jeff Beck to form the supergroup "The Honeydrippers" and released an EP titled "The Honeydrippers: Volume One" in 1984.

  • John Bonham - Drums
  • John Paul Jones - Bass, Keyboards
