Page & Plant’s Walking Into Clarksdale

Co-produced by 1990s rock-producer extraordinaire Steve Albini (whose work includes production for Pixies, P.J. Harvey, Nirvana and The Stooges’ March 2007 studio-album comeback), Page & Plant’s Walking Into Clarksdale wasn’t quite the follow-up to No Quarter that everybody had hoped for. If No Quarter was an understandably cautious collaboration, relying on the tried-and-tested Led Zeppelin material, with only a few new compositions, Page and Plant had to put their money where their mouths were on Clarksdale. The brand-new Led Zeppelin rock and force-meets-world compositions were strong, the album just lacked the defining songwriting that characterized the duo’s best work. As such, much of it seemed to lack a defining direction, though the single, ‘Most High’, would win a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1999.
