Three Week Hero is an album released by rock singer P.J. Proby on April 8, 1969 by Liberty Records. The album contains a mixture of dramatic pop, blues, rock, and country style songs. While it did not succeed commercially, it is best remembered today as the first time all four members of Led Zeppelin recorded together in the studio.[2] The album was reissued on CD in 1994.
