Raising Sand

I was just listening to a new CD called "Raising Sand" by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.

I've been a big fan of Ms. Krauss for many years. Bio here. She was a bluegrass fiddle champion, but she's grown over the years. She sings like a bird.

I've heard of Robert Plant (Bio), but I was never much of a Led Zeppelin fan. I sorta remember him from one of the iterations of The Yardbirds. Memory is a funny thing.

This is another instance of one of my favorite musicians introducing me to a more mainstream artist. Live and learn.

Anyway, a country or bluegrass album this one ain't, although there are some nice overtones. Hit the album link and give it a listen. I like it.

And, oh yeah, it was $12.29 at Costco.
