Caught the 2nd and final show of Plant's "North American Tour" last night at the Alabama Theatre in Bham. Very enjoyable 90 minute set.

The show -

about 5 Zep songs - Friends, Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love (as part of a medley) and Gallows Pole

about 5 blues covers - 44 Blues, Spoonful, I'm Your Witchdoctor, Tin Pan Alley, Who Do You Love,

and about 5 other songs, a couple of which Plant sang back up while Patti Griffin sang lead.

A combination of blues, roots, Americana, English, African music. He had an African band member playing a couple of native instruments - I told a friend of mine "somewhere, Derek Trucks ears picked up and he said 'where's the cool world music coming from?'"

Thanks for the report. I was dying to go to this, but I could not justify the trip (and would have been unhappy w/ 90 min, so just as well). Hoping they do a good-sized tour next yr.

Would love to see Derek play this setlist with one of Plant's bands...his material has been excellent and his musicians are always tops...Derek might fit right in....

Lol. The review of the show says that Plant covered George Thoroughgood's "Who Do You Love." ah yes, one of George's classic compositions.....

Song Premiere: Amy Cook Featuring Robert Plant, 'It's Gonna Rain'
Listen Here

On August 28th, Amy Cook will release Summer Skin, her follow-up to 2010's Let the Light In, on Roothouse Records. The album features guest appearances by such stars as Patti Griffin, Ben Kweller and Robert Plant. However, according to Cook, the duet with the Led Zeppelin frontman wasn't exactly planned.

"Robert Plant had come to the studio with Patty [Griffin] and was sitting next to me in the control room and he said, 'Do you mind if I give it a go?'" Cook tells Rolling Stone. "I did not mind. He sang it a couple of times and it was perfect."

Plant's harmony vocals appear on "It's Gonna Rain," a smoky ballad that makes ample use of the familiar "Stand by Me" chord progression. Cook describes it as a "song of hope," explaining, "'It's Gonna Rain' is a song I wrote for a friend who had had a rough couple of years."

I agree. This was a really good show with an ecclectic mix of music. I really admire him for stepping as far outside of the Zepplin thing as he has. Even the Zepplin songs he did were "re-made". My only issue was that 90 minutes was a bit too short.

Oh, and I felt sorry for the guy next to me who kept saying to me after every song, "This one's gonna be Stairway to Heaven, right? He's gonna do Stairway, isn't he?". And I would dutifully reply, "He's not doing that one".

That is funny.

But is a good insight into the great majority of the population.
