Whole Lotta Bluegrass: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin
Release Date: 1/4/2005
Led Zeppelin–the original monsters of metal. The sights and sounds of Zeppelin’s flight through the history of rock are unforgettable–Robert Plant twirling his mic like a demented lasso, as he launches into the otherworldly howl of “The Immigrant Song;” the raucous beauty of a Jimmy Page guitar solo; bassist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham pumping out their rhythmic, rolling thunder. The ultimate live band, Zeppelin’s showmanship thrilled crowds around the world, while their records took fans on a wild ride from hard rock to high art.
A mandolin gently strums a peaceful, backwoods melody... wait a sec, this is a Led Zeppelin tribute! Whole Lotta Bluegrass: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin is a blazing collection of classic tracks, played to the acoustic max. The hottest banjo pickers and fiddlers tap into the raw, untamed power of Zeppelin, turning hits like “Whole Lotta Love” into high-intensity bluegrass jams. Lyrical covers of mystical, folk-flavored tunes like “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp” round out the mix, but the focus here is on the basics–play-it-loud, Led Zep-inspired bluegrass rock.
