Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Raise The Roof
Friday Release #120
Singer Robert Plant and musician and country singer Alison Krauss return to collaborate after 14 years with "Raise The Roof".
After the sweeping success of "Raising Sand" from 2007, it was simply asked to work on a sequel album, which is exactly what we get with "Raise The Roof", whose title even corresponds with the title of the previous album.
As you may recall, "Raising Sand" was a huge success in sales and picked up all six Grammy Awards in which it was nominated at the time, including "Album" and "Record of the Year". Planet stepped out of his comfort zone at the time, collaborating with Krauss, a country and blue-grass artist and winner of no less than 27 Grammy Awards, but this bet was successful and is a proof that sometimes the best things come from unconventional collaborations.
Work on the album began in Nashville in November 2019, but then the Covid-19 struck and delayed everything.
Similar to the previous album, this time too the musical material includes interesting and inspiring cover versions for various artists such as: Lucinda Williams, Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, "The Everly Brothers", Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Ola Belle Reed, Brenda Burns.
