    Anyone buy their CD "Raising Sand"? I picked it up about 2 weeks ago and can't stop listening to it! :cool2: Great stuff that crosses over between country and rock! I was curious if any other B.O.C. members were enjoying it as much as I am! :big_smile:

    Man...I love Robert Plant. Saw him and Jimmy Paige in Kansas City in 1998 when they released their album.

    One of the BEST concerts I've seen...and I've been to a great deal of them over the years.

    Led Zepplin is one of my absolute favorites.

    Allison Krause also has one of the SWEETEST sounding voices of all the female artists IMO.

    Her adaptation of Keith Whitley's "You Say it Best When You Say Nothing at All" is almost as good as Keiths version.

    I'll have to check out the rest of the cd...the song I heard was pretty good.

    That was the best show I've ever seen. totaly awesome. Page and plant had it going on that night.

    I remember it like it was yesterday. I was celebrating my 1st year of sobritey. I took this gal I had a big time thing for, Heather was her name. when Robert and Jimmy took the stage and started playnig "Thank You" I was completly mesmerized. Heather could have been making out with the guy beside Her and I would have never known. I think I stood there gape mouthed the entire show....LOL

    I'll remember that show for the rest of my life for more than one reason.

    A landscaping buddy of mine had an extra ticket he said he'd GIVE me if I was to help him unroll some grass onto this guys lawn he'd bid on.

    I figured...HELL YA! How hard can that be?

    In hindsight...I WISH I'd have bought my ticket!!

    NOTHING'S more fun than leveling a yard...ya...he forgot to tell me that...and then unrolling 2 ACRES of Kentucky Bluegrass! (He neglected to mention that part too)

    The temp was 102 degrees and 80% humidity. :angry:

    I got the worst sunburn EVER!!

    I think I got screwed!! Sure was a good concert tho.

    I was wondering how it sounds but haven't had a chance to hear any of it yet. I haven't bought it yet either but maybe after the first of the year I can buy a copy.

    Hi Zappa:

    It's HARD to explain, but go to the link below & see the instructions by Paul Louderback himself. You need to scroll down to post number 74. Hope this helps.

    I saw an interview on Charlie Rose with Robert Plant, Allison Krauss and T-Bone Burnett(The producer of the album), it was a good interview. T-Bone has produced several Folk/Americana type album like the soundtrack for O'Brother Where Art Thou.

    If you like that album, you may wan't to check out Mark knopler of Dire Straights and Emmylou Harris's album called "All the Roadrunning". I think that it is similar in musical style. I saw them perform together on "Crossroads".
