The album’s production was credited to the band’s lead guitarist and songwriter Jimmy Page, and it was also Led Zeppelin’s first album on which Eddie Kramer served as engineer.
The album exhibited the band’s evolving musical style of blues-derived material and their guitar riff-based sound. It has been described as the band’s heaviest album. Six of the nine songs were written by the band, while the other three were reinterpretations of Chicago blues songs by Willie Dixon and Howlin’ Wolf. One single, Whole Lotta Love, was released outside of the UK (the band would release no UK singles during their career),and peaked as a Top 10 single in over a dozen markets around the world.
Led Zeppelin II was a commercial success, and was the band’s first album to reach No. 1 on charts in the UK and the US. Since its release, various writers and music critics have regularly cited Led Zeppelin II as one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time.
