Alongside 'Long Promised Road' and 'At My Piano', Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' 'Raise the Roof' will be released on November 19 as well. I was a huge fan of their 'Raising Sand' album, and the three singles released for their latest project sound fantastic. Anywho, I just found out about this the other day, and wanted to inform anyone else of this in case they missed the news like I did!

My wife's a big fan of that album. Thanks for the heads up, rab. Wink

I liked the first project, and I'm enjoying what I'm hearing from this upcoming release as well. It sounds like Plant has found his new inspiration in both recording with Alison, and revisiting songs more on the vibe of his old Honeydrippers rockabilly/50's tribute project back in the 80's. Because Plant sounds fantastic! He and Alison have a great blend, and Plant's vocals really deliver the goods. That's pretty amazing considering his history in the 60's and 70's where he was literally shredding his voice on stage with Zep.

In fact I'd say Plant's vocals - based on these duet projects with Alison - show that he is one of the artists from the 60's and 70's whose musical skill and vocal prowess has survived the decades. Understanding the circumstances behind one of the following artists, compare the Plant-Krauss project to a recent duet pairing of Springsteen and Mellencamp. It sounds like two hoarse guys singing during the peak of a bad cold or flu. Again, I know what Mellencamp went through, but hearing "The Boss"...I just don't get it, or the appeal. Especially after hearing Robert Plant actually singing and harmonizing skillfully versus croaking out lyrics.

Yeah Springsteen doesnít sound too great these days.

And I totally agree about Plantís voice. It is such an unusual pairing, but it works so well. And the instrumentals for these songs are just stellar. This Friday is going to be such a wonderful day full of music!

Also, glad to see you posting here again, I hope all is well with you!

Loved their first album.  Need more time for this one to grow on me.  I really like "Can't Let Go" and the title track so far.
