Nine Lives [Digital Version] (Box Set)
by Robert Plant
Released: Nov 2006
Label: Rhino Atlantic
Robert Plant has always been the ethereal light to Jimmy Page's darkness, but on his own he is a restless innovator, deep thinker and collector of arcane sounds. This extensive box set culls together everything he has recorded since Led Zep was grounded in 1980, revealing exactly how prodigious his range, musical gifts and imagination are. He wanders through the decades and over the globe searching for new inspirations, crafting songs that include the best parts of Celtic and English folk, American blues and early rock, psychedelia, jazz and the more dangerous elements of Moroccan and Indian music. Included are tunes of such searing honesty, passion and pain that they stand bare-chested against some of Plant's best moments as one of the progenitors of heavy metal.
