Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters: Live At... [DVD] [2018] [New DV

Robert Plant has released a video showcasing a live performance of “Season’s Song” with his band the Sensational Space Shifters. The track appears on his latest album “Carry Fire”, which was released in October. “On this collection, there’s 11 songs – there’s thousands more under the pillow,” Plant tells the audience in the video, which was filmed in Manchester on November 30th. “And this is a topical song, really. It changes every day, but the sentiment remains the same.”

In a recent radio interview, the former Led Zeppelin singer hailed the Sensational Space Shifters for their worth ethic and attitude. “The guys I play with are superlative,” he said. “They’re the greatest guys on the planet and they’re very, very good fun. Very silly. It’s kind of like a school trip when we go on tour. It couldn’t be more charming and humorous.”
Robert Plant also mentioned  his songwriting process with the group. “To be able to write with these guys and to come out with the songs, we feel very accomplished,” he noted. “I don’t see it breaking doors down, but … at this particular time in my existence, for me it is breaking doors down – because it’s telling me that I can actually be moved through time and still not repeat myself and not end up like some kind of a one-trick pony.”

Plant also recently confirmed the release of a new concert DVD, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters “Live at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption”, which was recorded in Los Angeles in 2016.

Robert Plant Shocks Crowd With New, Unique Spin On “Black Dog”—Still Sounds Marvelous! | Society Of Rock Videos

There’s no denying that Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog” has one of the best riffs ever in rock history. The song has inspired so many musicians and future generations, and will always be a landmark in music history. But unfortunately, the chances of us hearing the song performed with any remaining members of Led Zeppelin perform this gem live again, are pretty slim to none.

In the meantime, however the former, Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant has been playing this classic rock track solo for many years. During his return to Austin City Limits recently, Robert Plant and his band The Sensational Space Shifters had this song in the setlist, but put an especially unique twist on the song .
This version of “Black Dog” that Plant plays has a Latin, bluesy and cosmic vibe. There are a few synths included, the song is drawn out to a longer length, there is added percussion and the riff is slightly altered. We must admit, it’s a unique spin on the song, but we love it! It definitely keeps the song fresh and allows it to touch on an alternative vibe!
The only thing that would make this any better, would be if Jimmy Page were playing guitarJohn Paul Jones was on the bass and Jason Bonham (John Bonham’s son) was kicking on the drums .
