Led Zeppelin History – Nov 12

This one is actually post-Led Zeppelin history:

Today in 1984 former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant’s solo EP The Honeydrippers: Volume One was released. This album came about primarily because Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertegun (whom Zeppelin’s 2007 London benefit concert was for) wanted to record an album of his favorite 1950s songs. He chose Plant after he saw Plant’s pick-up band, the Honeydrippers (formed in 1981), performing 1950s standards around the UK. The EP featured Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Brian Setzer on guitars, Paul Shaffer on keyboards, and Nile Rodgers as co-producer. With the EP’s success, Plant stated that a full album would be recorded, but it never was. And although titled Volume One, a follow-up album never materialized.

Track list:
I Get a Thrill (Rudy Toombs)

Sea of Love (Phil Phillips)
I Got a Woman (Ray Charles)
Young Boy Blues (Phil Spector)
Rockin’ at Midnight (Roy Brown)
