Robert Plant and Alison Krauss: What if Led Zeppelin went bluegrass?
I grew up on Led Zeppellin Music… particularly LZ IV with Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog and Rock and Roll. Over the last 10 years, I have listened to a lot of Alison Krauss. I saw her performance in Vancouver two years ago with Union Station, and also her performance with the “Down From the Mountain” tour of the music and musicians from the movie soundtrack for “Oh Brother Where Art Thou?”
But Robert Plant, lead singer for Led Zeppellin with Alison Krauss, and produced by T-Bone Burnett? Did somebody slip some magic mushrooms into the sweet potatoe pie?
This is definitely crossing musical boundaries, as well as both sides of the Atlantic. Lots of blues and rockabilly riffs here. I have been listening to it everyday since it was released on Tuesday Oct 23. Check out this YouTube video:
