Goes without saying Robert Plant is not from this planet, and is one of the greatest rock singers of all time. All superlatives fall short. This beautiful song has been chasing me for some time, so I dropped my guitar down to "Open C" and tracked this today. It was originally released in 2005, on Mighty Rearranger, Plant's 8th solo album.

Nicely done. Love the bonus track At the end. I haven't heard the Plant original. Does he do that at the end?

Thanks Bec! I put that in there just for you, heheh. Thx Ken, DB, Xolv! smiley

Vap, Plant does not add that on the track, but I figured when in "Open C" do as the Romans would...or Jimmy Page, heheh. Hey, Rigee thx!

I am also a fan of Robert Plant but have not followed him closely since the days of Led Zeppelin so am not familiar with this song. Love what you have done here though. Superbly clear production and faultless vocals. Certainly a fave.

@woofer3 Yeah, this album, particularly is very "world" and mature...some exotic tracks on it. Worth a listen, thx. Another great overlooked track is "Ship of Fools" from Now and Zen. Would love to record that one.

YEAH!! Awesome, ...expletives, superlatives, etc....!

He who dares cover Plant is daring indeed. You need not worry about the expected criticism from Plant purists, you've nailed this. Kept his essence but made it our own. nicely done.

I too love the outro!

And Mosses raises a good point, you should try out. Wonder if anyone here has, tried for the Voice that is?

Well-done, Boon. I'm likin' yer voice with fewer effects...just you an' the guitar...that's nice.

I think if I didn't know this was a robert plant song, it'd still sound like one to me...got that vibe.

Nice job!

Bloody great job on this! Love your voice (I say that each time!). I like your voice on this more restrained type song (but love it going 100mph on songs like the Creedence song you did earlier). Wonderful playing and nice capture of the acoustic guitar too. Alround a "pearler". Bob surely is part alien! I saw him earlier this year - you can see my video of his concert (I was around row 6 or something) on my youtube channel here (you might have to wade through a few recent posts like Taylor Swift (which was absolutely bloody great actually! - took my daughters but enjoyed it just as much), plus some other stuff. There's about 20 concerts on my feed. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHJsy3fOmFQgOj8tpL761bQ
