I bought this EP when it came out in the 80's for many it was a surprize hit. The CD remaster is great. You can hear everything very clearly. Jeff Beck's guitar solo at the end of "rockin at midnight" is vibrant. On the Ep it was faded out. Just a warning, Robbie Blunt is only on the live version and, this is not his first collab' with Mr. Plant despite what it says above. Hey, who ever thought old stuff could sound relevent?

Sea of Love & Rockin' at Midnight...what's more to say. Those 2 songs are worth the price right there. But 2 more jewels are Young Boy Blues and I Gotta Woman. Love the cd. Jimmy and Robert at their best!!

Guess I had to step into the 21st century. This album has been remastered and sounds great. Some of the best musicians in the world are on here. Its just too short.

I had this record back when it was issued in the mid-80's. I remember Robert Plant took a lot of flak from his Led Zepplin base of fans for making a recording that deviated from the Led Zep formula. God forbid those fans ever listen to any other genre of rock.

I bought the CD for the recording of "There's Good Rockin" which has a driving rhythm, Jeff Beck on lead guitar and a fantastic horn section. There's an added bonus track of "There's Good Rockin" live.

The other tunes are pleasant enough to listen too. There's some nostalgia in this record for me too. my girlfriend, who is not my wife of 15 years, used to screw our brains out while this song was playing. Gonna give it another try on CD.

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page,late of Led Zeppelin,mellow out with some R&B/swing numbers like the Top 10 hit SEA OF LOVE and the Top 20 hit ROCKIN' AT MIDNIGHT. Joining Plant and Page in this ensemble is Nile Rodgers,who himself had chart success with his R&B band Chic. Rodgers had quite a workload with this album and Madonna's LIKE A VIRGIN. It's understandable that Plant and Page declined to carry on with Led Zeppelin after the 1980 death of drummer John Bonham. SOL was made famous originally by Phil Phillips in 1959. The differences between Phillips' recording and the cover are no "buh-buh-buh-bum" in the cover,a key change in the cover and Plant's accenting of some of the lyrics differently than how Phillips did it. I guess that's because Plant is English(as is Page) and Phillips is American(as is Rodgers). ROCKIN' AT MIDNIGHT really swings. It got the lively 1940's sound that the fighting men of World War II were dancing to at clubs. After this album,Plant,whose solo career began in or around 1982,continued going solo. Page formed his third band THE FIRM and released an album in 1985. Recently,the surviving Led Zeppelin members re-formed with a new drummer and are currently on tour.

When this collection of tunes came out I was mesmerized by the fullness, almost Phil Specter production quality of "Sea of Love" as it played on my FM dial (yes son, back then we listened to the radio for music most of the time and not our IPods or MP3 players) when I saw it available for $5 on AMAZON I had to jump on it (having lost my copy of it in a bitter divorce)
It still held that same hold on me and I was also surprised to hear an extra clip (the live version of Rockin At Midnight)
All in all, it's excellent music to hear, and by the way (or BTW if you so desire) Brian Setzer did perform on this album and I believe this made way for what would become "The Brian Setzer Orchestra..." but I could be wrong...

When this album, yes album, first came out, I remember playing it often. Such a different take and style than what is out there. Had not heard this in many years. Played the CD in my car on the way home and sat in the driveway waiting for a song to finish. My 17 year old neighbor asked who that was. He had never heard this type of music. Now he is hooked and bought a copy. If you are not familiar and looking for something a little different, give this one a shot.

Boy does this CD bring back memories. I originally had this on cassette years and years ago. I kept talking about "Sea of Love" and finally purchased this CD. Page/Plant do it again.
