plantWith the release of the latest Robert Plant Record Lullaby and … The Ceaseless Roar, before really digging into this excellent work it seemed appropriate to take a journey through the past, and to check out some of the gems from the solo journey of Robert Plant.

The Honeydrippers – Good Rockin’ Tonight

The Honeydrippers was Plant’s solo project launched as a tribute to the Bo Diddley stylings of vintage 50’s and 60’s Rock and Roll.  It still holds up with songs like “Sea of Love,” “I Got a Woman,” and “Good Rockin’ Tonight.”

Robert Plant – In the Mood

Plant was starting to find his stride with this follow-up single to “Big Log” from what many consider to be his best solo album, The Principle of Moments.

Robert Plant and Allison Krause – Gone,Gone,Gone (Done Moved On)

Having found his musical muse in Allison Krause, Raising Sand went on to win multiple Grammy awards and served to cement Plant’s standing as the most successful of the 60’s era Classic Rock front men.

Robert Plant – Tall Cool One

This one goes back to circa 1988 and Now and Zen. Probably his most Zeppelin influenced album, there were riffs a-plenty here with an old school sound that makes this one of the more popular solo efforts.

Robert Plant & Band of Joy – Angel Dance

The band name comes from a pre Zeppelin band that Plant had in the 60’s.  This one came out after the monster juggernaut that was Raising Sand and had a totally different vibe. This is a stong album with the performance taking center stage as evidenced with “Angel Dance.”
