EDITORS’ NOTES

Robert Plant’s affection for roots music continues on this collaboration with bluegrass superstar Alison Krauss. Together, with producer T Bone Burnett, they explore a variety of roots styles, from the swamp blues of the opener, "Rich Woman," the pedal-steel fueled sorrow of "Killing the Blues" and quiet county desperation of Gene Clark's "Polly Come Home" to the lonesome despair of Townes Van Zandt's "Nothin'."

It's sooo good..it's great.

I hate duo's but this simply transcened my idiotic thinking. Music won again.

The only thing better was actually being in Clarksdale to hear the performance!

I love this compilation of Delta bluesy rhythms and lines. It weaves together the threads of Americana music creating a tapestry that feels as comfortable and familiar as a tattered blanket from my infancy. Birthed in Clarksdale, I can assure you that this will awaken in you what made American music what it really is, a lovely feeling with heart as well as edge.
