Editorial Reviews

Robert Plant's journey through the territories that have most acutely informed and inspired his music is perhaps one of the most multi-faceted of any artist from his generation. His fantastic voyage has essayed the plantations of Mississippi, the deserts and townships of Africa and the settlements of the Appalachians. Featuring rare footage, performance archive, recorded interviews, contributions from his closest collaborators, expert critique from the finest music writers, plus location film, news reports seldom seen photographs and a host of other features.

The video provides a good insight into Plant's musical career.
Christopher S. Campbell
The lack of emphasis on Plant's time in Zeppelin could certainly be criticized, although the program might have been five hours long if they covered Zep in depth.
ZC
It was good hearing from a few of Plant's colleagues (Chris Dreja, Robbie Blunt, an irate pop producer) but too few candid moments.

(Review originally written for the Led Zeppelin email list, For Badgeholders Only)

In the first few minutes, I was rolling my eyes as a rip-off (cover?) of Since I've Been Loving You played in the background while being treated to what seemed like way more clips of bluesmen like Howlin' Wolf and the Rolling Stones than anything from Robert Plant. However, this DVD is not like one of those Biography channel type things which are about 42 minutes of mostly garbage content spread out over an hour timeslot... Robert Plant's Blue Note has a running time of 2 hours, 37 minutes, plus a little 5.5 minute bonus clip discussing Lead Belly and Plant (in terms of Zeppelin and Plant/Krauss). Despite the questionable decision to use the SIBLY cover (it led me to believe that I wouldn't be hearing any actual Zeppelin/Plant music) many times
throughout the video, more appropriate audio and video footage is employed much of the time.

This is not a Led Zeppelin documentary and should not be construed as one - so if you go into it expecting a complete breakdown of Plant's time in Zeppelin, you're going to be disappointed. There is quite a bit of time spent on Plant's influences as a teenager and how they impacted him in Zep, but most of the focus is on the early years, including claims that Plant's position in Zep was not secure even after the first album. There are clips from Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds (with and without Page), and Zep clips (all available on the official 2003 DVD, like Danish TV), as well as audio from Band of Joy (from Sixty-Six to Timbuktu). The focus on Zeppelin is brief - limited mostly to the band's formation, moving very quickly to spotlighting Kashmir and then skipping over any detail about why the band ended.

Just got hold of a pre release copy of this through a compwtition, so I thought I'd let you know what to expect...

When Robert Plant hit the grooves and airwaves with Led Zeppelin as I was coming of age, I have to say that I took him for granted. A supercharged instrument at a time when so much was going on in rock, he stood out as coming out of the blues, but went beyond to forge a style tremendously influential in what eventually was known as metal. If I paid more attention at the time to what was happening instrumentally, it was to my temporary loss. Of course he was more than just a rock screamer. As a soon-to-be-released DVD Robert Plant's Blue Note (Sexy Intellectual SIDVD567) shows clearly, he was and is a complex character with diverse interests, influences and a long career of stylistic change and development.

The video documents the shifting scene around him from the early-mid sixties onwards and his engagement with it. There is a fairly detailed look at the British blues boom of the '60s, spawned by a tepid pop scene and the infusion through imported records and personal appearances in England of the great black artists with their iconic excitement and sheer power. The general scene and Plant's eventual involvement with it are covered with depth and insight.

Not having seen other bios, I was interested and glad I bought it. However, I would have liked more information and question some of the validity and factuality of the information. For one thing, they mention Plant not being first choice but do not say that Page hadn't heard of Plant at that point and Plant was recommended to him by his first choice. By quotes from Page, he was blown away and wondered why if Plant had been singing a few years wasn't already big! He thought something might be wrong with him personality wise, but they spent a few days together and got along well and the rest is history... That wasn't mentioned at all. It is like they leave out important information that misrepresents the facts. Also, Blunt from other reviews seemed to enjoy the time working with Plant and touring. He also said in this dvd that they were overwhelmed when they toured America and how much the fans loved Robert. It brought a tear to Robert's eye. I found that endearing... Blunt thought they are going to start screaming for Zeppelin music, but they didn't. They knew what Robert was doing and they were happy to hear his solo music so they were very impressed.

I found it interesting to learn what inspired Plant and his amazing voice. But, would have loved to see more performances. I guess I need to get the performance dvd's also.

Overall I found it good as I am a die-hard Plant and Zeppelin fan.
