        I haven't heard their new album - is it good?
        If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.

            yes. I am listening to parts of it on amazon. I keep forgetting to go buy it and that makes me an irresponsible fan. I've heard a couple people tell me it's very good.

              I really like Allison Kraus. She's done some good stuff with James Taylor. I might have to check that show out or buy the album.

                A great album......I had it the day it came out and was wondering if it was going to do anything, but it looks like the duo are gaining some popularity....they are also playing Bonnaroo....

                  17. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Raising Sand.
                  Perhaps you young'ns are too wee to remember, but back when I was in high school Robert Plant released two decently-received post-Zep solo albums that did reasonably well in sales and even yielded a couple of hits. The other thing those discs (and his work as the voice behind the Honeydrippers) revealed was that Robert Plant's voice was all but shot. Drenched in reverb, echo, and multitracked to the point of being unrecognizable, it was all a far cry from the wailing, shrieking, Zeppelin front man of "Whole Lotta Love".

                  So if you're waiting for me to say "Robert Plant's voice is back!" keep dreaming--although it is obvious he's taking much better care of that instrument over the last few decades and hasn't sounded this good since In Through The Out Door. Instead, by turning to a rootsy Americana setting and by collaborating with Alison Krauss, Plant has found a perfect vehicle and collaborator for what his voice can still do, and as such he reveals himself to still be one of the best vocalists in rock in the last 40 years. Together the two take off on a batch of songs drawn from American myth, whether they're swampy chestnuts like "Rich Woman" or the Everly Brother's rollicking "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)", as well as a passel of newer songs (a wonderful unrecorded--new?--Zeppelin song called "Please Read The Letter" and Sam Phillips' gorgeous winder "Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us" with Krauss singing lead).

                  The only thing keeping this glorious album in the bottom half of my Top 20 is T-Bone Burnett's production. After hearing the glorious abandon of "Gone Gone Gone", you'll find yourself hoping and praying that at some point Krauss will decide to start sawing the hell out of her fiddle and that Plant will take a foot-stomping Appalachian melody and just rock the holy hell out of it...but Burnett and his hyper glossy faux-"old-timey" prodcution hovers over the whole enterprise like a fire extinguisher trying to keep two combustible artists from bursting into a bonfire.

                  The entire album can be streamed from the control in the upper left of the site here.
                  "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)"
                  "Please Read The Letter"
                  "Rich Woman"

                      Just bought it on iTunes. Great stuff from the snippets I heard.

                        The bottom two links don't work. Gone Gone Gone sounds great.

                          I really expected this to work as well as a Rush Limbaugh/Hillary Clinton sex tape - this isn't bad at all. Alison is dreamy.

                              I tried to bring this album to your attention about six weeks ago.

                              You ignored me, like all wimmen.
