Led Zeppelin was the opening act to veteran performers, Vanilla Fudge. According to a press review, Vanilla Fudge appeared as musical impostors when compared to a group like Zeppelin. The bass player for the Fudge even apologetically acknowledged this as he mounted the stage and said, “There’s no way we can follow that.”

1969 Led Zeppelin in Salt Lake City, UT
The Mill Studios (also known as The Mill or The Sol), located in Berkshire, England, was a recording studio built by Gus Dudgeon, who purchased the property in 1975 to develop a studio for recording/producing a number of Elton John's albums. The property itself is an old watermill on the Thames River system, with a recording studio and control room connected to the old watermill and residential wheelhouse via a bridge over the millpond dam.

Jimmy Page purchased the studio complex in 1980 when he also bought a home, the Old Mill House, a few minutes away.

The Led Zeppelin songs Poor Tom and We're Gonna Groove, originally recorded in 1970, were produced by Mr. Page at Sol Studios for release for the album Coda. The soundtrack for the film Death Wish II, The Firm’s two albums, and Outrider were also recorded at The Sol.
