fingerpin is right about paying attention to the start of Robert Plant's music. The first four LZ albums were full of American rural blues and British traditional folk songs, electrified beyond easy recognition, but drawing much of their power from their roots.

Most popular music is evanescent, but some of it survives and transcends its era to become "folk" music that everyone knows. "Cindy" is such a survivor. It's a great American fiddle tune and folk song from the 19th century, and this version is evidence that its melody will survive well into the 21st. RP plays a lot of great music, but only a fraction of it will have the lifespan of this tune, whatever one thinks of this particular version of it.

Oh, Helen didn't need to be asked; now Aunt Bee...that would be so wrong. 
We digress. {#Wave}

Kind of reminds me of when Pete Townshend said this about the MTV Unplugged version:  "I'm glad that Eric (Clapton) has sold millions of albums, but if I hear that bossa nova bongo version of 'Layla' again, I think I'll scream."

I'll check back later. Seriously.
That's an inexcusably bad album cover.
Best version...Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin on vocals, Walter Brennan playing a mean harp, John Wayne grinning!

are yeah kidding me .........one of the biggest voices in rock 'n' roll from the 70's ....and aptly put by beeblebrocks40  the predecessor of this note .........now ballading with Gomer as a backup (no pun intended), Opie on mouth harp, Aunt Bea on the jug (could be worse), and good old Barney bouncing his one bullet off the desk top( he can't clap in time the man has absolutely no rythym at all) ............how low the mighty have fallen .....Roberto your not country at all ...your not even rock any more .....your in Mayberry limbooooooooooooooo!!!!

Fantastic album!


I like this.  Saw him on the Today show yesterday saying this album was coming out today.  He's looking old.  Still one hoopy frood.
