SHORT TAKE: Page & Plant
Dec 10, 1994
Jimmy Page & Robert Plant, No Quarter (Fontana): Jimmy Page once remarked that Led Zeppelin could as easily have been the Incredible String Band as the metal gods they became. Here is the proof; Zeppelin chestnuts are revisited as Celtic laments, while fresh material takes them to Egypt and Morocco. Some of the old pomp remains; still it’s a dignified and thoroughly worthwhile reunion.
