    I looked over this list of songs again and only saw one omission of Robert’s vocal prowess from the first album – “You shook me” his vocal interplay with Pagey’s guitar is truly awesome…the chemistry between the two is amazing, too bad it can no longer be there…Peace…

  • Lorraine robertson said:

    Happy Birthday Mr Robert Plant, A guy who has thrilled me since 1966. I have been lucky to witness many, many evenings in the company of Robert and I can say that every night was different but the most enthralling adventres to the music. I don’t know of anyone with the musical knowledge that Robert possesses and to share the music his way has been one trill ride after another. Thankyou

    A different Percy shirt for each night at the pub this weekend in
    celebration I think !
    The ‘white dove’ U.S. shot tonight….then probably Fate of Nations,
    followed by the long sleeved Dreamland.
    And at some point I’m keen to get stuck into the Classic Rock
    Physical Graffiti special….surely their best ever cover.
