Strictly a solo affair, this 2CD, 30-song collection includes tracks from Plant’s 11 solo albums in addition to three previously unreleased recordings, one a duet with Patti Griffin on Charlie Feathers’ rockabilly classic Too Much Alike.
Spanning four decades, the album highlights Plant’s vocal capabilities without the inherent restraints and expectations of being part of Led Zeppelin. These solo recordings showcase the musician’s wide vocal range on songs that explore rock, country, pastoral folk and a variety of influences somewhere in between. Robert Plant is undoubtedly one of the greatest singers of the rock era, and this collection will most certainly enhance that already sterling reputation.
Digging Deep: Subterranea by Robert Plant is out September 25 via Warner.
