Jimmy Page photographed for August issue of british magazine Mojo (2014)"Jimmy page looks upset, almost hurt. Mojo has just asked him about how recording at Headley Grange affected the sound on Led Zeppelin III. - “We didn’t go to Headley Grange for III" says Page, shaking his head. "You should know that”.Baffled by this rebuttal, your correspondent looks to his notepad for reassurance and finds none other than the name of the former East Hampshire poorhouse which was transformed into a residential rehearsal studio in the late ‘60.- “You’re not the first person to mention Headley Grange in connection with III but it’s complete rubbish. I should know, I was there! III was done at Olympic and Island," continues Page, ever the stickler for detail. "But that’s the way it is with Led Zeppelin: there are so many stories that are just plain wrong and no one tries to find out whether they’re true.”As the conversation comes to a close, MOJO vows to inform Page of the source of this schoolboy error. Further inspection reveals that 1993’s Led Zeppelin: The Complete Studio Recordings box set lists Immigrant Song, Friiends, Celebration Day, Gallows Pole, Tangerine and Bron-Y-Aur Stomp as all having been recorded at Headley Grange. “We shall have to blame Atlantic!" says Page on reveiving the information offering the final thoughts on the album that hit Number 1 in both the US and UK on release in October’70.- “I still think III is a fabulous album and I suppose the real significance was in the wat in which we approached some of the material at Bron-Yr-Aur” he concludes. "It made me think that if we could write in that kind of enviroment, then maybe we could record as a band in that way too. That’s what happened on IV. And that’s when we moved in to Headley Grange. That was when the band was really writing en masse all the time and things really opened up. If you have to, I suppose you could say that III is what set us on that path.”
