Lamont's Music Notes For March 28th

Here are Lamont's Music Notes for March 28th.

March 28th, 1973 – Led Zeppelin

On this date in 1973, the mighty Led Zeppelin released their fifth studio album “Houses of the Holy”.
This album contained “Over The Hills And Far Away”, “The Rain Song”, “the Song Remains the Same”,and “No Quarter”.
The album became a commercial success, and was later certified 11X Platinum by the RIAA (the Recording Industry Of America).
And here’s an oddity, the title track “Houses of the Holy” was originally recorded for this album, but was delayed until the release of band's next album in 1975 (Physical Graffiti).

Here’s the official promo video for the song “Over The Hills And Far Away”

March 27th, 1979 - Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton married George Harrison's ex-wife, Patti Boyd in Tucson, Arizona. George attended the wedding as did Ringo and Paul. BTW, she must have really have had some magic because George Harrison wrote the song “Something” for her, and Clapton wrote the song “Layla” for her !!

This might be the greatest all-star collection of talent to ever jam on a song. Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker singing back up, and what looks like Vladimir Putin rockin’ the tambourine.

March 24th, 1986 - Van Halen

Or should we say Van Hagar, because it was on this day in 1986 that Van Halen released their 7th studio album, titled 5150.

Quick hits on 5150:

-The album was the first to be recorded with Sammy Hagar who replaced David Lee Roth, and was -5150 is the name of Eddie Van Halen's home studio,,
-5150 is the California police term for a mentally disturbed person (a reference to Section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code).
-5150 was the #1 album on the Billboard Top Albums chart for three straight weeks.
-Prior to the release of this album some record company genius’ advised VH to discontinue the Van Halen name
-Eddie and Alex formally refused. -
Eddie met Sammy Hagar while getting a mechanic to work on his Lamborghini. The pair hit it off and the new singer and band immediately began work on new songs.
-a new Van Halen logo was introduced on the cover of the album.
-VH 5150 sold over 6 million copies and has been certified 6X platinum by the RIAA

Here’s one of my favorite Van Hagar songs, live version of Best Of Both Worlds from 1986.
