Music to Recommend
That new Robert Plant/Alison Krauss long-player, Raising Sand, is pretty impressive!
I thought the poor guy's voice was totally roached, but wait a minute -- he's still got it!
The harmonies between these two are exquisite. Who'd-a thunk?
My favorite song? "Please Read The Letter." Sure, it lasts a minute or two too long, but it sounds completely fresh, yet as old as a can of rusty nails.
Maybe he can't shriek and wail like he used to, but he's matured into a great song stylist.
And what's with Alison Krauss these days? She's transformed herself from looking like the shy girl you might throw up on at Church Camp into a bluegrass pin-up girl! Va-va-voom!! Twenty-three skidoo!!
