'Cornbread'Robert Plant – DreamlandRobert Plant – Dreamland
{re-release 2007}

Legendary voice of Led Zeppelin takes a soulful voyage to explore his musical influences. Probably the bluesiest album Plants done in his solo career. Funny in My Mind is a Mississippi Delta song. One More Cup of Coffee is a slow-paced cover on Bob Dylans song. Darkness, Darkness is a remake of the Youngbloods song. The most known song is Jimi Hendrix 'Hey Joe', Plants version features a ghimbri, a three-string, Mid Eastern instrument. For me the triumph was Win My Train Fare Home which is a blues medley featuring elements of Arthur ‘Big Boy’ Crudups “If I Ever Get Luck” & “That’s Alright Mama”, Robert Johnsons “Milk Cow’s Calf Blues” and John Lee Hookers “Crawlin’ King Snake”. This is one of Plants better solo projects, less pop, more free spirited as Plant delves into psychedelic-acoustic-rockin’-blues.

Dreamland is good stuff, great for a Saturday afternoon nap on the couch with the stereo cranked up.
