iTunes Editors’ Notes

Robert Plant’s collaboration with Alison Krauss on 2007’s Raising Sand provided Percy with exactly the guidance he needed to re-find his love of folk music, which had been his passion prior to joining Led Zeppelin. Band of Joy had been the name of the group he led before Jimmy Page came around with an offer he smartly didn’t refuse. Playing music he always loved and that now better suits his range and energies, Plant is in strong form throughout 2010’s Band of Joy. The final song that Townes Van Zandt wrote, “Harm’s Swift Way,” is treated with empathy further enhanced by Patty Griffin’s sweet and sorrowful harmonies. Los Lobos’ “Angel Dance” is relocated from the L.A. barrio to the U.K.’s Black Country. “Silver Rider” and “Monkey” are both from Minnesota’s slo-core veterans Low and are transformed at Plant’s eager will. The traditional material is helped along by Buddy Miller’s coproduction, and his instrumentation, along with that of Darrell Scott, includes electric guitar, baritone guitar, mandoguitar, six-string bass, mandolin, banjo, accordion, pedal steel, and lap steel guitars.

Customer Reviews

What?!

How is there only a few reviews on Robert Plants album? It's not like he's unheard of. Well, I like the direction Plant is taking, it's roots music and his voice is being used in a different light than our beloved Zeppelin screech, and the thing about it is: sure his voice has changed, but unlike Daltry, he decided to work with it instead of trying to cull the embodiment of his youthful voice. Plant pulls it off with some style points, and I can appreciate that there's still artists out there who are showing the rest of us how it's done. You may not think every track is a killer, but theres enough going for it to be more than noteworthy.

I just have to download this after seeing the concert on DirecTV. I'm looking and looking and finally realize that the guy playing ALL kinds of instruments is Darryl Scott. Awesome player and songwriter. Enjoy!

I am a huge Patti Griffin fan. She is the reason I checked this out. I was in awe! Their voices sound great together and I love the diversity of the album. The instrumentation is fantastic. I am looking forward to more from this band and duet.

In 1968, a naïve young singer from the Black Country hills in England named Robert Plant was discovered wailing the blues by veteran session guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones. When Plant recommended his friend John Bonham as the drummer, one of the most successful bands in rock history was born: Led Zeppelin. But the group that started with such force also ended in flames after 12 years, as Bonham's death from alcohol poisoning in 1980 split the band after nine albums....
