Robert Plant - Live Principles CD


Following the demise of Led Zeppelin in December 1980, Robert Plant considered abandoning music in favour of teaching. He nevertheless embarked on a successful solo career, helped by encouragement from Genesis drummer Phil Collins, who would go on to play with Plant. Robert Plant's solo career began with the album Pictures at Eleven in 1982, followed by 1983's The Principle of Moments. The latter record featured the track 'Big Log', which became Plant's debut chart hit in territories worldwide. Following the strength of his first two releases, Plant launched a successful tour in 1983, which covered dates in the US and the UK. One of the finest shows performed on the tour was at London's Hammersmith Odeon on 12th December which, somewhat bravely for the singer, did not feature a single Led Zeppelin song. Even the introduction of special guest Jimmy Page, who joined Robert for the encore, didn't change things as the pair burst into a version of the old Elvis tune 'Treat Her Right', before the full band left the stage to understandably, frenzied screams of 'more'. Recorded for live FM Radio Broadcast but previously unreleased, this superb gig is now available in its entirety for the first time on this 2CD set.
