'band of joy' is a timeless plunge into authentic americana and it's plant's first since 2007's six-time grammy-winner 'raising sand' with bluegrass singer alison krauss. recorded in nashville, 'band of joy' was co-produced by plant and legendary nashville guitarist buddy miller. "buddy's zone is beautiful," said plant in a statement, "with a lot of reflections going back into mid-fifties rockabilly, the singing fishermen and all the great country stuff, along with the soul and r&b from memphis." tracks on the album include renditions of los lobos's 'angel dance,' low's 'silver rider' and 'monkey,' the kelly brothers' 'falling in love again,' the traditional 'satan your kingdom must come down,' english / appalachian folk ballad 'cindy, i'll marry you some day,' and blues-y 'central two-0-nine.' along with miller, the musicians behind band of joy - which is also the name of the band with which plant and drummer john bonham played before joining led zeppelin - include multi-instrumentalist darrell scott, country singer-songwriter patty griffin, bassist byron house, and percussionist marco giovino.
