    Guests of British TV presenter Jools Holland were able to hear an unusual version of the Led Zeppelin classic “Rock and Roll”. Ex-Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant sang the song along with Irish singer Imelda May in a snappy rockabilly version. They were accompanied by Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.

    Plant also sang two cover songs: Chuck Willis’ “I Feel So Bad” and Ray Charles’ “Lonely Avenue.” The performance took place on the anniversary edition of the music talk show Later… with Jools Holland, which just celebrated its 30th birthday. The program was already recorded in October, and the BBC has now published excerpts of the program on its YouTube channel. The show also starred Gogol Bordello, Celeste and Michael Kiwanuka, among others.

    Listen to the original song (in the remaster version) here:

    In early November, Plant commemorated the late Low singer Mimi Parker with a cover of the song “Monkey.” Plant released his last solo album, Carry Fire, in 2017. 2021 saw the release of “Raise the Roof”, Plant’s second album with bluegrass singer Alison Krauss. ‘Rock and Roll’ comes from the untitled Led Zeppelin fourth album, commonly referred to by fans as Led Zeppelin IV, which also includes the all-time classic ballad ‘Stairway to Heaven’.
