Led Zeppelin – “Houses Of The Holy” Album Cover Location
Giant’s Causeway, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
The album cover for Led Zeppelin’s Houses Of The Holy was photographed on the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. The cover shows several naked blond-haired kids but in reality only two kids, Stefan and Samantha Gates, were used, a brother and sister. Atlantic Records added a wrap-around paper title that hid the children’s buttocks, but still the album was banned in some parts of the Southern United States. The inner sleeve photo was taken at Dunluce Castle near the Causeway. The album was released on March 28, 1973.
