Biography

On his Nonesuch debut, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, singer/songwriter Robert Plant bookends an album of brilliantly realized original material with two versions of the haunting bluegrass tune “Little Maggie,” popularized in the mid-’40s by the Stanley Brothers. In the Stanley Brothers’ hands, the song is mournful yet stoic as the narrator vows to leave for ... Read more in Amazon's Robert Plant Store

You can ignore all the crybabies around here who are blubbering about the song selection in this package. First of all, there are two discs, and Disc 2 is where the true treasures abound, while everyone is expecting Disc 1 to be a standard greatest hits package. Our whiny friends apparently didn't notice that this collection is NOT called "Robert Plant's Greatest Hits," and they also didn't notice in the liner notes that Robert himself didn't want to create that kind of package. Sure Disc 1 features a very lopsided compilation of Robert's proper solo work, with the earlier albums being almost totally neglected in favor of the later ones. If that's a problem for you, just listen to the original albums again. Of course, Robert meant for this package to focus on the more adventurous aspects of his music, which can be felt throughout Disc 2, and that's the real reason for this collection's existence.
Zep collectors will be fascinated by the first few cuts on Disc 2, which are long-lost selections from Robert's pre-Zeppelin work. The first two tracks are obscure British singles in which the teenage Robert was trying to be a pop heartthrob and sounded very little like his future blues-metal self. Robert finds his voice in the next two tracks by Band of Joy, his pre-Zeppelin group with John Bonham on drums (one of these two tracks is a surprisingly sinister version of "Hey Joe"). The collection then skips to 1983 and proceeds to take us on a tour of post-Zeppelin tracks that were often so offbeat and adventurous that they didn't even fit onto the solo albums. Here is where Robert fans will be truly reminded of his unappreciated love for the experimental and his mastery of non-Western sounds.

A superb special collection of 35 songs in 2 cd's, featuring the voice of one of the main singers in rock history. CD 1: features material from his solo albums; but CD 2: is full of rarities, bonus tracks, pre-zeppelin works with groups like Listen and Band of Joy and a live performance in Timbuktu. Sad, but no songs from the first solo Plant CD Pictures at eleven(Because I think "Like I've never been gone" is the best of the Plant's solo career), and no other hits like "In the mood" and "Other Arms"; The cd 1 contains "Big Log" from Principle of Moments; "Sea of Love" from Honeydrippers vol.1; "Little by Little" from Shaken and Stirred; "Heaven Knows; Tall cool one; Ship Of fools" from Now and Zen; "Tie dye on the highway" from Manic Nirvana; "Calling to you, 29 Palms; I believe; If I were a carpenter; Promise Land" from Fate of Nations; and "Darkness, Darkness; Song to the siren; Dirt in the hole" from last cd Dreamland. The rest are the "good news" of the track list: "Hey Jayne; Naked If I want to; 21 years"; 3 unreleased tracks: "Upside Down; Road to the sun; Red for Danger"; early tracks: "You'd better run; Hey Joe; For what's is worth; Operator"; a side project song recorded under the moniker Crawling Kingsnakes:"Philadelphia Baby"; special appearances: "Let's have a party; If it's really got to be that way; Rude World; Little Hands; Life begins again; Let that boogie woogie roll" and live performance in Timbuktu: "Win my train fare home". This cd sounds great, and worth to be part of your own collection. 5 stars.

In many people's books this may not qualify as a true greatest hits cd. The songs on disc 1 don't necessarily relate to chart success as much as they are Plant's personal favorites. But they are a good overview, especially since most of these tracks are from his later solo efforts, which I consider more polished efforts. Most people who are fans of Plant are going to have many of these songs anyway. The real surprise for me was the disc 2 compilation of Plant's early pre-Zep era songs and rarities and side project material. Since I was a boy and dinosaurs still walked the earth I've been listening to Robert Plant from that classic 1969 first Zep record to a more subdued Plant and his 8 post-Zep solo albums. But I had no idea he was so active before his Zepplin days. This disc starts in 1966 with recordings from his band the Tennessee Teens, where he cut the tracks "Our Song" and the Young Rascals classic "You Better Run", which is a little more rocked up version than the original. He then moved on to the band called Band Of Joy. This was a nice rockin' little band who cut the tracks "Hey Joe" and an interesting hard rock version of Stephen Stills "For What It's Worth" which offers up some mean no frills guitar work. He also sang for the Russian blues king Alexis Korner in 68' on the killer blues tune called "Operator" before moving on in 69' to a group called the New Yardbirds, aka Led Zepplin. These early gems alone are worth the price here. But you also get some rare songs off of various sountracks and tribute albums that he's done over the years. The standouts being "If it's really got to be this way" from his tribute to country soul man Arthur Alexander.Read more ›
