Hey gang this is a must buy for everyone.

"Rockin' at Midnight" is unleashed big band fun, and "I Got A Woman" does fine justice to the Ray Charles effort.

Getting it recently, on CD, was almost as good as discovering it the first time.

I think Smokey Robinson first sang that line in "Second That Emotion." That's true here, because after you listen to this one you'll want more than five songs, and you'll want Volume II. Whether you're a Led Zep fanatic intrigued by another Plant/Page pet project, or a nostalgic type attracted to the crooning vocals and big band sound, this is a keeper. I'm the former, and I have to say Robert Plant's vocals are transcending. Yes, it's the guy who sang "Whole Lotta Love" leading the Spectoresque wall of duop sound in the first track here, "I Get a Thrill." The Phil Phillips classic, "Sea of Love," is covered nicely, minus the bouncy strumming: It sounds like Page & Co. took an iron to the Phillips track and the resulting radio hit is smoother than, well, dripping honey. "Rockin' at Midnight" is unleashed big band fun, and "I Got A Woman" does fine justice to the Ray Charles effort. And on "Young Boy Blues," Robert's voice is ethereal, matching his "Sea" try and reminiscent of earlier croons with and without Led Zeppelin, like "I'm Gonna Crawl" and "Big Log." Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and company show that great rock musicians are great musicians, period. The string sections, big band sound, beautiful arrangements, and gorgeous guitar solos underscore the tremendous talent that recreated this music. It's true that Volume I was intended to be released without the artists' identities, but fat chance with such a fine ensemble. The CD is lush, well produced, and easy to listen to. My only gripe here is that I wanted more, and indeed Volume II was never to be. Still, I must recommend it -- if you don't like it, I assure you that someone else you know will.

Honeydrippers vol. 1 might also be known as "Robert Plant in a Swinging Mood"...

In the middle of 2nd and 3rd solo efforts that saw him trying to define his solo career, Robert Plant returned to his roots, with this sojourn or detour into the rock and roll that started his career.

That's the point of the Honeydrippers. Most people don't get it - why did Plant do a Wayne Newton? one asks. He didn't - he was merely paying tribute to the music that turned him on.

But the Honeydrippers is too short. This was an EP - not a LP - and it is somewhat too short of an experience. I can't believe that Plant didn't record more tracks. He sounds quite relaxed, happy and bright - instead of trying to force himself in a zep mode.

For the follow up to this - buy Brian Setzer's big band albums - which continue the trend...

I'll never forget the first time I heard "Sea of Love" from this album. Completely blown away! I always wished Plant would do a second cover album like this. Getting it recently, on CD, was almost as good as discovering it the first time. Robert Plant has made many good and great records but this one is tops.

Any Led Zeppelin fanatic like myself knows that, for all the bands heaviness, Zep never strayed far from the folk and ol' rhythmn & blues that originally inspired them. Here is some evidence of that in the form of five covers recorded by The Honeydrippers. Five years after the death of John Bonham, Page and Plant reunited for half an albums worth of big-band with a swing-twist sounding material. Some of the other prominent musicians here include Brian Setzer, Jeff Beck, and Nile Rogers. So how did they do?

"Sea Of Love" on here - wow, THIS is the way that song was supposed to be (no disrespect to Phil Phillips intended). A full orchestra with Plant's vocals and a perfectly accompanying guitar solo in the middle. This is one of the best ballads ever recorded by anyone. Plant's vocals are not at all restricted to the Led Zeppelin rockers we all know - he can croon with the best of 'em. No greater evidence than this song.

"Rockin' At Midnight" was the other single here to go top ten. The original artist was the late Roy Brown. If we listen to stuff from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Brian Setzer Orchestra - I really believe "Rockin' At Midnight" could have been a primary source of inspiration for some of those retro-swingers out there. This song has the horns, the piano, and another guitar solo reminiscent of the beginning of rock and roll (1950's). That is a real swinger with an upbeat tempo - FABULOUS song and great tribute to Roy Brown.

Does anyone remember the videos to these two songs? I'd love to get my hands on them if possible!

"Young Boy Blues" is another slowed down song with a full orchestra A perfect accompaniment for the lyrics of a guy downtrodden by love. Almost as good as "Sea Of Love".

I remember this album from its debut. I didn't get it. I was way beyond the whole rockabilly sound. Swing didn't swing. But since it was a Zep side project I thought I would check it out. Nope, I didn't get it. So what changed? Not the Honeydrippers...

Anyone who doesn't get this album -- or, more specifically, it's place in Zep history -- needs to check out the Whole Lotta Love medley on "How the West was Won." This live version segues through several blues standards and sounds, at times, like a mini-concert of the Honeydrippers. It doesn't have the whole Big Band thing going on, but it's definitely got the rockabilly/blues/swing thing working. That entire CD (HTWWW) made me appreciate the breadth and depth of Plant's and Page's (and Bonham's) abilities more than ever.

Now I appreciate the Honeydrippers. I think I "get" what this was all about. It's an homage to their roots. It's another side to their musicianship. It's a Whole Lotta Fun.
