Led Zeppelin covered “When The Levee Breaks” when they originally played it. This would be a cover of a cover.

I liked it better when Robert Plant covered his cover with his band “The Strange Sensation.”

That’s on YouTube as well.

Memphis Minnie. 1929. Singing about the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927.

Not a cover.

Great video, something is off with the drummer. Can anybody tell if it’s a music sync type performance. I can’t tell and the harmonica seems a wee bit to spot on for a live performance.

Judging by whats available on youtube, this rendition of when the levee breaks is their best material.

The most popular singer of the 1920's was Vernon Dalhart. In his hit record The Mississippi Flood (1927), he tells the story of this great natural disaster.

Screw all that Treyvon sheeeet. Here is some fine black Americans from North Carolina namely Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and PeeWee Ellis doing James Brown better than James Brown....back in the day more peaceful day like 1992

MACEO RULES!!!!

Pretty damned good, if the mix sucks (the bass was barely audible; the drums should be HUGE in that song). Nice musicianship.

That just looks painful.

Led Zeppelin has gotten overexposed over the decades, to the point that I only enjoy hearing the lesser known tracks, such as “Tangerine.”

I also enjoy music from artists who are clearly influenced by them but have a sound of their own, such as Slightly Stoopid, for instance the instrumental “Zeplike,” here performed live:

The video is HD so you’ll need a reasonably fast connection.

That’s not bad. But you know those Brit musicians from the ‘60s took the blues copied it, sometimes note for note, and wound up with something else. I’m not sure what it is: it’s sort of the blues, but, then again, it’s nothing like Robert Johnson or Skip James. It’s not bad, but is it the blues? I don’t know.

LOL! I saw Dread Zeppelin a few times back in the mid ‘90s. They were a tight group back then, and a lot better than they appear in the Youtube videos.

I saw a bit of an interview where Plant was asked about the photos taken of him back during the LZ days...

He was asked if there was anything he would have done differently for the photos, his answer was “Dress right.”

I think most people would give the same response after being asked about their fashion sense in the past. In retrospect, the Don Johnson look didn’t suit me as well as I thought it did in the mid 80’s.

I borrowed a Hayseed Dixie CD from a friend and listened to it. It was cool.

Ummm, take another look at the photo you posted... Plant wasn't using the word "right" as in "correct," but as a directional adverb.

What a great cover. Most of those 6k views are mine.

I wish they would come to the east coast.

While I really LOVE this band, there are a couple of other LZ covers that deserve mentioning...

Heart does an AMAZING version of “Battle for Evermore,” as do the combination of Allison Krause & Robert Plant.

Both can be found on YouTube.
