"Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face/And stars fill my dream/I'm a traveler of both time and space/To be where I have been..."

Physical Graffiti is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released as a double album on 24 February 1975.

The band wrote and recorded eight new songs at Headley Grange. These eight songs stretched the total playing time of the record over a single LP's usual length, so they made this a double album by including one outtake from Led Zeppelin III, and three each from Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy, including the unused title track.

Physical Graffiti was a commercial success (even garnering praise from Rolling Stone, of all places). It ranks at #73 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.
