    Oh, And maybe it is just good marketing, but it looks like the photos reveal more going on between these two than music in the studio. Or am I just being dirty-minded?

    "Mr. Ballad" Bob Plant and the ever-lovely and beautifully voiced Alison Krauss - oh my! Not all of their songs on their collaboration are this good - only a couple made it into the old library.

    Have discovered over the last decade or so that I have a deep love of the blues, but haven't had a lot of exposure. Need help with great artists to listen to. Please.
