'Led Zeppelin Five Glorious Nights' Book Captures 1975 Earls Court Concerts

Rufus Stone Limited Editions has announced the release of Led Zeppelin Five Glorious Nights, compiled by Dave Lewis.

The LP-sized coffee table book features 288 pages, printed on high quality 170gsm art paper, celebrating Led Zeppelin's five night stand at London's Earls Court in 1975.

It features the pictures of several photographers who attended the shows, with many shots not seen before. Only 1,000 numbered copies will be produced.

"After many hours, days, and weeks working on the book layout, we finally have a completed book design," Lewis said. "This encompasses 288 pages, with approximately 62 color photos, 155 black & white photos – 229 in all – plus 165 color memorabilia images including Earls Court bootleg LP, CD and DVD sleeves etc.

"Much more than a mere book of photos, the intention has been to capture the atmosphere of the five Earls Court shows through these startling images – sequenced and presented in a way that unfolds the whole saga of this remarkable series of concerts – to be viewed and enjoyed time and time again. Looking over the completed proofs, I think we have achieved that objective and fans are going to absolutely revel in the contents of this unique visual photographic record of Led Zeppelin in their absolute prime."

When the book is ready to ship at the end of May 2015, but it can be be pre-ordered now with a £15 discount off the final price of £130. For more information, go to www.rufuspublications.com.
