    Agreed, YankeeRose...I enjoyed all of Plant's solo stuff, but 'Now and Zen' is my favorite of his solo albums...Great line you quoted!

    Do you have his other solo cd's?

    I gotta get his stuff on disc...

    Hey Sacto fan! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I have all of Plant's solo albums but they are all on cassette except Now And Zen, [img]redface.gif[/img]

    Heaven Knows is another great song from that album. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Yankee..."Heaven knows, what kind of fool am I..."

    Still my favorite solo Plant tune is "I'm in the mood" from Principle of Moments(I think) [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Does anyone else love this song?

    I think it's awesome!!!!!

    I bought Now And Zen a few months ago just for this song, it's definately his best song and solo album IMO. [img]smile.gif[/img]


    The end of the song is wicked too! I love how it has a few seconds of Black Dog and Whole Lotta Love from Led Zeppelin in it.

    Lighten up baby i'm in love with you.

    I've been listening to a ton of Zeppelin lately. Personally, I'm not a fan of his using Zep samples in a solo song. Of course, Zeppelin didn't have any problem stealing from their blues influences, so why not steal from your own back catalogue.

    Saw a show the other day on Led Zep, and at one point Plant came off like a real dick. The piece of footage was from when Page and Coverdale were working together, and Plant was practically whining that Coverdale never cited him as an influence. He totally came off like a rock star who needed to have a pat on the back.

    My favorites are from his earlier solo albums:

    Burning Down One Side
    Big Log
    Little By Little (My absolute favorite)

    He never really hit it big as a solo artist, did he? I mean BIG... He has some great tunes, but he was never as big as he was in Zep. I wonder why?

    Yeah but in Tall Cool One it's at the very end of the song that they use samples, and the song is pretty well over. I though it was a cool tribute to Zeppelin myself. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Especially when he saw that Page did a album with him that is incredibly awesome!!!! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    It was SO non-zepplin that I forgot to laugh the 5th time I heard it. For me, it's just one of those "If youre in the mood" songs were if the stars align just right and everything is in even keel THEN it would rock! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Lol ... Right!!!
