Performed by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss
From the album Raising Sand
In the album Raising Sand, legendary Led Zeppelin front man, Robert Plant, pairs with extraordinary country songstress, Alison Krauss, to create a transcendental work of eclectic auditory art. The album in its entirety compels the soul with exquisitely blended harmonies to haunting and eerie effect, gypsy violin, and fascinating production.
Producer, T-Bone Burnett, has given us the award winning soundtracks to O Brother, Where Art Thou, the Johnny Cash/June Carter biopic Walk the Line, Crazy Heart, Across the Universe, The Ladykillers, Cold Mountain, The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Down From the Mountain, Horse Whisperer, Stealing Beauty, Until the End of the World. He has also produced for many artists including Roy Orbison, Elvis Costello, Counting Crows, Los Lobos, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Elton John, Natalie Merchant, John Mellancamp, and BB King, among many other works in his fruitful and interesting career.
One Amazon review from Ian Chalmers:"This is one of those serendipitous occasions when the right people and material find each other, the planets line up, you draw against all odds …common sense and commerciality are thrown to the wind. If you have any faith in the essential goodness of man, any hope that art is a good thing, a taste for good music regardless of the labels slapped on it, experience that love will break your heart, but you'll fall into it anyway, and a suspicion that Rounder Records has more artistic sense in its (figurative) little toe that all of the major labels combined, you'll buy this CD. And besides, looking at the jacket photos, I have to wonder if Robert and Alison don't share a hair stylist."
