ROBERT PLANT To Release PBS Performance On DVD

Launch Radio Networks reports: Robert Plant's appearance on the PBS series "Soundstage" will be released on DVD October 24 as ROBERT PLANT AND THE STRANGE SENSATION. The show took place in Chicago on September 16, 2005, and it was shot in high-definition and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound.

The 66-minute performance with Plant's band the STRANGE SENSATION features reinterpretations of such LED ZEPPELIN standards as "No Quarter", "Black Dog", "Whole Lotta Love", and "Four Sticks", which is dedicated to the late John Bonham. It also features music from Plant's solo career, and cover versions of "Hey Joe" and BOB DYLAN's "Girl From The North Country". Plant said, "The spirit of rock-and-roll is live performance. Studio recordings can be captivating, and live albums can capture some of the synergy in a concert, but there is really nothing like being in the moment when the music is connecting you to the people — it's truly a communion."

He added, "It's quite something to watch successive generations of music fans discover and appreciate your work. It's kind of like rediscovering the world through a child's eyes. You find fresh nuances in the music and the songs continue to grow with a life of their own. As I've explored the rich musical traditions of North Africa and the Middle East, elements of those musics have worked their way into some of the most unlikely songs — and that kind of constant reinvention keeps your creativity piqued."

There's also a Plant box set called "Nine Lives" coming November 14. It has all of his post-LED ZEPPELIN albums, along with a DVD of interviews, music videos, and other material.

The track listing for the ROBERT PLANT AND THE STRANGE SENSATION DVD includes: "No Quarter", "Shine It All Around", "Black Dog", "Freedom Fries", "Four Sticks", "Tin Pan Valley", "Gallows Pole", "The Enchanter", and "Whole Lotta Love", along with the bonus tracks "Hey Joe" and "Girl From The North Country".
