1973: Led Zeppelin's fifth studio album, "Houses Of The Holy," is released. It was the first Led Zeppelin album composed of entirely original material, and the first not self-titled, and represented a musical turning point for the band. The album was promoted heavily before the start of Led Zeppelin's 1973 North American Tour, ensuring that it had reached the top of the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart by the beginning of the tour.
