Led Zeppelin History – April 21

Today in 1998 Jimmy Page and Robert Plant released their second post-Zeppelin album together, Walking Into Clarksdale. (Clarksdale is a Mississippi delta-area town known for its blues music history.)

Track List:
Shining in the Light
When the World Was Young
Upon a Golden Horse
Blue Train
Please Read the Letter
Most High
Heart in Your Hand
Walking into Clarksdale
Burning Up
When I Was a Child
House of Love
Sons of Freedom

“Most High” and “Shining in the Light” were released as singles, with a music video also done for “Most High”. In 1998 “Most High” also won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance. If “Please Read the Letter” sounds like a more recent title to you, it’s probably because Plant re-recorded the song with Alison Krauss for their 2007 collaboration album Raising Sand. This re-recording won the Record Of The Year award at the 2008 Grammys.
