The Yardbirds, tired from constant touring and recording, were beginning to wind down, and there was talk of building a supergroup with himself and Beck on guitar and The Who's Keith Moon and John Entwistle on drums and bass.
In 1974, Led Zeppelin launched their own record label called Swan Song, named after one of only five songs that the band never recorded for commercial release (the track was re-tooled as "Midnight Moonlight" by Page's post-Zeppelin band The Firm on their first album).
After a decade of recording and touring, the band was now considered a dinosaur in some quarters, as mainstream musical tastes had moved in favor of disco and critical focus had turned to punk rock.

 In Through The Out Door Lyrics - Led Zeppelin
The album was named by the group as such, because of their recent problems and the rise of punk music, trying to get back into the public mind is like "trying to get in through the 'Out' door, than through the 'In' door".
The original gramophone record of this album featured an unusual gimmick (though 1979 marked a high-point, or low-point if you prefer, in the gimmicky-ness of records).
This could sometimes be seen while the record was still sealed.) The pictures all depicted a scene in a bar (in which a man burns a "Dear John" letter), and each photo was taken from the point of view of someone who appeared in the other photos.
