Live From The Artists Den: Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy

Live From The Artists Den: Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy
[Click above for album images]

If you did not have the pleasure of seeing Robert Plant & The Band Of Joy in concert, this release is something that you'll want to see. Filmed live on February 9, 2011 at Nashville, Tennessee's War Memorial Auditorium, this concert captures a hot performance on what was a snowy, cold night.

Lead singer Robert Plant brings his 40+ years of singing experience and his new-found love for American music, plus his old repertoire, singer/guitarist Patty Griffin brings her gospel/soul/country-style vocals plus some excellent acoustic guitar rhythm, Buddy Miller brings his arsenal of string instruments, including, acoustic guitars, Wandre electric and a Teo 12-string. He's an excellent picker that lends itself to the Americana roots style of playing, but I feel that he's got a mean streak of rock inside him, which shines while he's playing. Multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott is a real delight. He plays acoustic, electric, mandola, pedal steel and banjo, plus he's got a hell of a great voice. So full of soul. It's not what you would expect upon first seeing him. Bassist Byron House was brought in by Buddy Miller and does not disappoint. He plays both upright bass and electric four-string both with ease and adds some very tasty bass lines. Percussionist Marco Giovino fills in the blanks and adds so much, but doesn't make an attempt to take center stage.

The set list for Live From the Artists Den: Robert Plant & the Band of Joy is pretty standard for the tour, offering up some new songs, some old songs and everything in between.

Set list:

1. Black Dog
2. Angel Dance
3. Houses of the Holy
4. House of Cards
5. Cindy, I'll Marry You Someday

8. Tangerine
9. A Satisfied Mind
10. Move Up
11. Down to the Sea
12. Ramble On
13. Gallows Pole
14. In the Mood
15. Rock and Roll
16. I Bid You Goodnight

Long gone is the golden god, flowing lion's mane, cock rock. What you will see in this release is not Led Zeppelin or anything close. It is bits and pieces of Americana, roots, country, soul and gospel goodness. Robert said in an included interview that he now prefers the intimacy of playing at smaller auditoriums and ballrooms. The music that they play requires it. This release captures the live experience so well, with full-stage shots as well as close-up views, it's as if you could have been in the audience that night.

Robert Plant has moved on to the Sensational Space Shifters, returning to a more international edge that Plant is known for, but for the brief amount of existance that the Band Of Joy performed, this release captures that time perfectly.

Live From the Artists Den: Robert Plant & the Band of Joy will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 10 and worldwide on July 9 through Universal Music Group International at all the online retailers, as well as your usual retail stores. I highly recommend that you reserve yourself a copy now.
