I’ve been hearing ripples of publicity about an album of duets between Alison Krauss and Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin fame, Mom <wink>). Someone on another site posted a link to the official album website where you can hear the whole album. At first I was put off by the reverby guitars and pedal steel sound, but then I was drawn in by the beautiful harmony singing. Those instrumental sounds to which I initially reacted with distaste, I’m beginning to reclassify to “haunting” and “plaintive”. Most of these songs are pensive and slow–I had to slow down and accept the pace at which the beauties unfold. I think I might have to buy this.
