How was it? Spill! Xx


There was a bit of a discussion on recent gigs, Lorna.  Robert really enjoying himself...tip top band.  Awesome female vocalist.  A very mellow vibe... Low covers, Moby grape covers, lots of Apalachian style stuff.  I Bid you Goodnight.  It was fab.  Others were less impressed I think....
It's all about expectations. Those who expected a bit of head-banging Zep were sorely disappointed.
You don’t even get that in his normal gigs these days!
I hope they bring out an album. I’d definitely buy it

I remember Band of Joy not going down well at Cropredy cos MrPlant wanted todo fairly obtuse 60’s B sides.
People , for reasons I failed to understand, seemed to expect him to do Zeppelin songs.
I was listening to a Space Shifters album today , that I go back to a lot. He has to be admired for not living in the past but always trying new stuff.
As opposed to Jimmy Page bringing out another new edition of a 45 year old album......

Priory of Brion, you mean...? Watching PoB live (saw them 4 times + Cropredy, I think) were some of the best live experiences of my life.  It had already outgrown itself by the time they did Cropredy anyway...I think it may even have been their last performance?
