Raising Sand

The new CD from Alison Krauss and Robert Plant is called Raising Sand. My friend Debbie G. burned it (legally) for me and it's getting major replay in the Birdmobile as I drive to and from BWD.

I've liked Alison K's music for a while, but have of late gotten a bit turned off by the Perfect Bluegrass Production on her albums. This one, produced by T-Bone Burnett, is a keeper, baby.

Robert Plant is perhaps best known as the lead singer for Led Zeppelin. This is a fabulous departure for him, too.

At this link you can check things out for your own dang ears. There's even a bird-themed song on it: Polly Come Home.

Get it. You'll dig it!
