As Zep Faded Away Some Honey was found,
This review is from: Volume One (Audio CD)
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...
