A nice copy of a rare (and pretty good) Led Zeppelin-related LP. This copy comes from our own collection. We bought it new and played it exactly twice.
Background: Released in 1994, No Quarter: Jimmy Page & Robert Plant Unledded was the first of two albums by ex-Led Zeppelin members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.
The album reached #4 on the U.S. album chart and #7 on the UK chart.
This might not be what some diehards were expecting from a reunion, but it was a gutsy move from Page & Plant, and the ensuing album, No Quarter, has aged remarkably well. That’s not to say that it’s timeless music, or a latter-day comeback on the level of Bob Dylan’s Love and Theft, but this is ambitiously atmospheric, restless music by musicians not content to rest on their laurels. They do draw heavily from their past, but these new versions of classic Led Zeppelin songs sound reinvigorated in these new arrangements. At times, this means that the songs are given rather drastic reinterpretations — “Nobody’s Fault but Mine” brings the brooding undercurrent of the original to the surface, “Four Sticks” sounds livelier in this spare setting — while other tunes sound similar to the recorded versions but are given spirited readings (“That’s the Way,” “The Battle of Evermore,” “Gallows Pole”). Between these revived Zeppelin numbers are a few new songs, all ambitious and solid, fitting right into the vibe of the album; even if they don’t match the older tunes, they’re respectable and gain strength upon repeated listens.
