45 years ago: Led Zeppelin IV

45 years ago: Led Zeppelin IV | Level11 | Scoop.it

Led Zeppelin's fourth album is variously known as Led Zeppelin IV, Untitled, Four Symbols and Zoso, but its true title is formed by the four unpronounceable symbols chosen by each band member. Page did that to retaliate against writers, including several in Rolling Stone, who'd snubbed the band's music: "After all we had accomplished, the press was still calling us a hype. So that is why the fourth album was untitled." He also refused to give any interviews for a period of 18 months.


Thus, one of the best-selling rock albums of all time (23 million copies in the U.S., at last count) was fueled by the bandmates' resentment; they were victors who felt like underdogs. The gatefold album design had no photos or band information, which was "professional suicide," one industry expert warned Page, but it only added to the album's – and group's – still-enduring air of high-school-hallway mystery.

And the 2016 Nobel Prize In Literature goes to....Bob Dylan.

And the 2016 Nobel Prize In Literature goes to....Bob Dylan. | Level11 | Scoop.it

Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. In doing so, the prolific musician became the first American to win the prize in more than two decades. Not since novelist Toni Morrison won in 1993 has an American claimed the prize. 


Dylan won the prize "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition," according to the citation by the Swedish Academy, the committee that annually decides the recipient of the Nobel Prize. The academy's permanent secretary, Sara Danius, announced the news Thursday.


in comes as something of a shock. As usual, the Swedish Academy did not announce a shortlist of nominees, leaving the betting markets to their best guesses. And while Dylan has enjoyed perennial favor as an outside shot for the award, few expected that the musician would be the first to break the Americans' long dry spell — not least because he made his career foremost on the stage, not the printed page. 


Yet few would argue Dylan has been anything but influential, both in the U.S. and beyond its borders. The prolific singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has produced dozens of albums, including The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited and Blood on the Tracks. His track "Like a Rolling Stone" has taken on mythic standing in the decades since its release; many, including Dylan himself, have pointed to it as emblematic of a sea change in American music.


"Tin Pan Alley is gone," Dylan proclaimed in 1985, referring the dominant conventions established by music publishers of the early 20th century. "I put an end to it. People can record their own songs now." 


In an interview following the announcement, Danius elaborated on the Swedish Academy's decision: "He is a great poet in the English-speaking tradition, and he is a wonderful sampler — a very original sampler," Danius explained. "For 54 years now he has been at it and reinventing himself, constantly creating a new identity." 


The Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded since 1901 to writers who have produced "the most outstanding work in an ideal direction." In that time, 109 prizes have been distributed to 113 writers. This year, the prize carries with it a purse of approximately $900,000 and, as usual, inclusion on literature's most illustrious list — the pantheon of Nobel winners. 


The 75-year-old artist will receive his award in Stockholm, Sweden, on Dec. 10.
