Let’s say you are a Led Head and simply love everything about the mighty Zeppelin and Robert Plant. You may be excited to learn that the man has a new album and tour coming out. Unfortunately, there are no South Florida plans for Weston real estate owners to enjoy. Of course, you can always take advantage of the right CD and DVD, like Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation.
The work is his first-ever solo DVD release were originally aired in June of 2006 as an installment of PBS’s Soundstage concert series. The 66-minute film showcases Plant delivering eleven songs, including plenty of Zeppelin and two other covers. He shares a stage with his band, the Strange Sensation, in a comfortable environment back in 2005. An audience of a few hundred consists of well behaved and nicely dressed middle-aged spectators. Without a verbal introduction, the show kicks off with Plant and his boys creating a Middle East-inspired adaptation of “No Quarter.” Rather than the proverbial bass, this version is heavy on acoustic, utilizing dreamy percussion. Plant sways slowly in black pants and button-down top. As “No Quarter” begins slowing down, he picks up and beats a maraca. In “Shine It All Around,” the vocalist sings about the delicate heart of a man, while the legendary arrangement of “Rock and Roll” takes the masterpiece into unchartered territory, as it’s not quite as hard or heavy.
Folks in homes for sale in Weston see Plant briefly discussing Americans preoccupation with French Fries and sings Mighty Rearranger’s “Freedom Fries.” He dedicates “Four Sticks” to his former drummer and “dear old friend, John” ‘Bonzo’ Bonham, who died too soon in 1980. The title was earned from Bonzo’s unrivaled drumming that sounded like he was playing with four hands. In between the new CD’s “Tin Pan Valley” and “The Enchanter,” Plant recreated “Gallows Pole” with an Arabic feel. Some amazing blues riffs introduce the familiar work of art, “Whole Lotta Love.” The crowd dances minimally and sings the recognizable lyrics for the first time in the concert.
After fading to black, Plant and his crew reappear to cover Hendrix’s “Hey Joe.” Plant is successful in adding his own signature sounds, “Hey, Hey, Hey Joe.” What else could he do to personalize the concert experience? He sips from a coffee cup and expresses gratitude towards his audience, asking the “Can you feel it?” Plant presents the final song, “Girl from the North Country,” as “Mr. Zimmerman’s” beautiful tune from 1963.
Each of the band members is introduced by Plant, guitarist Skin Tyson, Billy Fuller behind the bass, John Baggot on keyboards, and drummer Clive Deamer, the only one not wearing all black. Justin Adams enhances the formidable rhythm section with the darbouka drum. The darbouka is used in Northern Africa and the Middle East and is best known for accompanying Egyptian belly-dancing. The instrument uses a plastic head on an aluminum or ceramic body to create a very sharp and crisp tone, a rare treat for Weston luxury homeowners.
