    Pretty cool. Very cool.



    I agree that the arrangement edits were not as well conceived as they could've been. But that does not take away from the fact that it is a very moving, well put together tribute to a great band and song. Still, those edits. Well, it wasn't the fact that there were edits, only that the places they chose to chop seemed to interrupt a flow that we all know so well. Tough job, they missed it slightly I think.



    The lead guitarist... well... how are you gonna top Page's take on that solo? You can't. It really is one of the great ones. And that particular guitarist missed it by a bit, but once again, that doesn't take away from how well done the overall version was done.



    Was that Bonham's son on the tubs? Whoever it was really did it justice. The recorder work on sampler was great, the vocal was fabulous... really fab I believe, the choir and strings were very well done.



    Yeah, it was pretty spectacular.

        He was, indeed. In the first, long ago, phase of my long, on-again-off-again relationship with rock, the last teen music I liked (just as I was turning 13) was surf and its working sibling, spy music (the kind with twangy guitars, principally, although I developed a soft spot for Lalo Schiffrin's big band work -- a very hip dude, of course). Guys like Tommy Tedesco were able to absorb and refine the raw sounds coming from rock, tame them enough to work in pop.

        The chorus seems a little weak... I think it needs more lasers.

He supposedly wrote them on the spot while hearing the music for the first time. [...][/video]




          Ah... so that's who those guys were.



          I've developed a real soft spot for Plant over the years. I really like his last couple of albums, with Alison Kraus and T-Bone Burnett, and with Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin in similar co-singer and producer/guitarist roles.



          It was nice to see them enjoy the show, actually. They seemed properly transported by the occasion.

          Tricky row to hoe. You wouldn't want to look like you were trying to either send or show him up. You have to play well, but stay in the shadow. (I can't say it did anything profound for me, but the way it summoned the original without being slavish seemed pretty professional.)



          The original solo, is, of course, one of the more compelling guitar solos of the 70s -- a time when there were a lot of guitar solos. It strikes me as one of the best laid out solos of the era -- and delivered with particular aplomb. Page really seemed in his element in the studio.

            Wow, that's quite the production. Not at all what I was expecting.

                Interesting, I see a lot of very proud people, stiff necks, people who have had a very comfortable lifestyle thank you very much, you know I have heard Rolf Harris do stair way to heaven on the wobble board and it sounded just as good, this is just another feel good touchy touchy, the world is a beautiful place, so long as you have plenty of loot to buy your stair way to heaven, I deal with a lot of people who do not have such opportunities, and to see Barack Obama revelling in all that kind of stuff, who does he think he is, you know what, only GOD can save this world from now on, not America with all its movies, sorry thats the way I feel, I live in the land of reality not television.

                  Yeah, nice little "Las Vegas" arrangement replete with all of the touches that makes it fit for same.
                  And if they had really wanted to pay tribute to Bonzo, (ie the bowlers, yellow vistalite kit, rack tom mounted on snare stand) then they should have hired someone with both the chops AND the brains to do so. I think most people know what I mean by that......

                    That was good for a smile!

                    I remember hearing an interview with a musician/comedian who made lounge-lizard versions of a lot of classic tunes and STH was one of them. He said, when he asked for permission, Jimmy said "Sure, maybe that'll finally put an end to it!"

                    Regarding the lyrics, it's a series of couplets; each couplet would be brilliant in the right context, but the context never quite delivers the goods. Still, along with Hotel California, it's one of the two songs people are most likely to stop on and listen to the end, when spinning the radio dial. You can't argue with that kind of success. It's got something, no doubt
