    What Makes This Singer Great? Robert Plant - Led Zeppelin

    The journey to Robert Plant's greatness started with his early years being spent in books and with the rocker choosing stamp collecting as a hobby rather than music. In fact, Plant had actually aspired to become a chartered accountant, thanks in part to his father's influence. Leaving school after two weeks of training in this field, he abandoned his studies in favor of becoming part of the blues scene that was becoming popular at the time.

    Robert's gig as frontman to Led Zeppelin started when they were known as The New Yardbirds, when they were fronted by Jimmy Page. While auditioning members to be in the group, Page had reportedly witnessed countless musicians try their luck at being the band's singer. In fact, two of the musicians that Page liked included Scottish folk singer Donovan, and Steve Winwood, who would later gain fame as a member of Blind Faith and Traffic. Ultimately Plant was chosen and Robert also prompted Page to select his former bandmate John Bonham on drums after Procol Harum's BJ Wilson turned the gig down.

    In addition to his singing, Page was a great songwriter. However, if you were to take a look at the credits of Led Zeppelin's self-titled debut record, you might recognize that there weren't any songs credited to Plant, despite the fact that he actually wrote six of the nine songs on the record. The reason for this is that Plant reportedly was still under contract for a record company different to Atlantic, Led Zeppelin's record label at the time.

    Robert's fame sometimes came in handy for him specifically on one occasion when the rocker was attempting to buy a shirt in London's upmarket Carnaby Street. Apparently, Plant attempted to buy the shirt using a check, for which he needed identification. Upon being asked for ID and having none, he instead went out to his car, grabbed a copy of Led Zeppelin's first album (which was, for some reason, in his vehicle), and showed it to the sales assistant, who allowed him to purchase the shirt.

    As we look at a montage of some live performances featuring Plant, I'll be sharing my own thoughts about what made him a great singer. I'd love to also hear what you liked most about this iconic singer. Please make sure to share your thoughts!

    She don't like her eggs all runny
    She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
    She looks down her nose at money
    She gets it on like the Easter Bunny
    She's my baby I'm her honey
    I'm never gonna let her go
    He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays
    I caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies
    He ain't too sharp but he gets things done
    Drinks his beer like it's oxygen
    He's my baby
    And I'm his honey
    Never gonna let him go
    In spite of ourselves
    We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
    Against all odds
    Honey, we're the big door prize
    We're gonna spite our noses
    Right off of our faces
    There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
    Dancin' in our eyes.
    She thinks all my jokes are corny
    Convict movies make her horny
    She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs
    Swears like a sailor when shaves her legs
    She takes a lickin'
    And keeps on tickin'
    I'm never gonna let her go.
    He's got more balls than a big brass monkey
    He's a whacked out weirdo and a lovebug junkie
    Sly as a fox and crazy as a loon
    Payday comes and he's howlin' at the moon
    He's my baby I don't mean maybe
    Never gonna let him go
    In spite of ourselves
    We'll end up a sittin' on a rainbow
    Against all odds
    Honey, we're the big door prize
    We're gonna spite our noses
    Right off of our faces
    There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
    Dancin' in our eyes.
    There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
    Dancin' in our eyes.
    (Spoken) In spite of ourselves

    Thank you in advance for your support.

    -Give Stan A Star Foundation


    Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
    To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea;
    Tracing one warm line through a land so wild and savage
    And make a Northwest Passage to the sea.

    Westward from the Davis Strait 'tis there 'twas said to lie
    The sea route to the Orient for which so many died;
    Seeking gold and glory, leaving weathered, broken bones
    And a long-forgotten lonely cairn of stones.


    Three centuries thereafter, I take passage overland
    In the footsteps of brave Kelso, where his sea of flowers began
    Watching cities rise before me, then behind me sink again
    This tardiest explorer, driving hard across the plain.


    And through the night, behind the wheel, the mileage clicking west
    I think upon Mackenzie, David Thompson and the rest
    Who cracked the mountain ramparts and did show a path for me
    To race the roaring Fraser to the sea.


    How then am I so different from the first men through this way?
    Like them, I left a settled life, I threw it all away.
    To seek a Northwest Passage at the call of many men
    To find there but the road back home again.

    I was walking through icy streams
    That took my breath away
    Moving slowly through westward water
    Over glacial plains

    And I walked off you
    And I walked off an old me
    Oh me oh my I thought it was a dream
    So it seemed

    And now, breathe deep
    I'm inhaling
    You and I, there's air in between
    Leave me be
    I'm exhaling
    You and I, there's air in between
    You and I, there's air in between

    Cut my hair so I could rock back and forth
    Without thinking of you
    Learned to talk and say
    Whatever I wanted to

    And I walked off you
    And I walked off an old me
    Oh me oh my
    I thought it was a dream
    So it seemed

    And now, breathe deep
    I'm inhaling
    You and I, there's air in between
    Leave me be
    I'm exhaling
    You and I, there's air in between
    You and I, there's air in between
    You and I, there's air in between

  • Johnny Collins, Singer of Shanties & Songs of the Seas


    Johnny Collins, Singer of Shanties & Songs of the Seas
    Filmed at the Zuiderzeemuseum at Enkhuizen 2006

    This Video is being retained as a tribute to Johnny Collins, who sadly passed away on 6th July 2009 whilst appearing at the Tall Ships Concerts in Gdansk, Poland.

    Johnny Collins, a native of the county of Norfolk but latterly based in London, England, was a well travelled performer specialising in the singing of shanties, sea songs and maritime ballads.

    An internationally acclaimed performer and recording artist, Johnny has organised Folk clubs and topped the bill in concerts around the world since the mid-fifties: his vigorous style and his supreme ability to persuade audiences to join in choruses was unrivalled.

    Johnny was a familiar and welcome figure at many of the world's foremost maritime venues and festivals, and has guested in the U.S.A. at Maine Maritime Museum, Kendall Whaling Museum and Newport News Maritime Museum. He has also delighted audiences with several concert appearances at Mystic Seaport (U.S.A.) and was resident shantyman at Expo '88 in Brisbane, Australia.

    1983 was a highpoint in his singing career when, in partnership with Jim Mageean, he was a winner of the Intervision Song Contest in Rostock, GDR, with a medley of English sea shanties. In 1987, Johnny was invited by the government of the GDR to appear at the Berlin Shanty Festival which was organised to celebrate 750 years of that city.

    Regular forays into Europe continued to be part of Johnny's yearly itinerary. He was a main guest at the annual Liereliet at the Strontrace in Workum, Netherlands for many years. He also sang regularly in Belgium, Brittany, Germany, Holland, Poland and France.

  • Bob RobertsStormy Weather


    From Wiki-

    Alfred William Roberts was born in the village of Hampreston, Dorset where his parents taught in the village school. Roberts's father, who was brought up in North Wales, ran the church choir as well as playing the piano, church organ, melodeon, concertina and fiddle for village dances. These musical interests led Ralph Vaughan Williams to visit him at the village.

    Roberts attended Wimborne Grammar School on a choral scholarship. After leaving school at 17, he eventually became a journalist at the Orpington Gazette, before moving to work as a sports reporter for the Daily Mail on Fleet Street. Robert found it difficult to settle at job at the Mail, and twice took off on long sea voyages. Finally he left the newspaper to work on a Thames sailing barge. Apart from a short stint as a sub-editor at the East Anglian Daily Times in the late forties, Roberts would work on eight barges over the next 35 years, initially as a mate and on his final five boats, as skipper. His other voyages at sea would take him to the West Indies, Ascension Island, West Africa and Brazil.

    In 1940 Roberts married his wife, Amelia or 'Toni', whom he'd first met in the late 1920s and in 1949 they moved to Pin Mill, on the River Orwell. And it was while working at East Anglian Times that F.T. Everard and Sons offered Roberts the captaincy of the Cambria, the Thames Sailing Barge he was to make famous.

    Working as a bargeman allowed Roberts to collect songs from bargemen and others he met along the East Anglian coast, which he added to his repertoire of his own songs. Working on barges also affected Roberts literary output, because even as a skipper his wages didn't support his family, which included two daughters. So, he supplemented his income by writing books and articles, often while waiting for good sea-going conditions.

    Roberts had a good selection of songs by the 1950s when he met the folklorist Peter Kennedy. Kennedy was making field recordings for the English Folk Dance and Song Society and the BBC, and together they recorded some of Robert's folk singing contacts for the BBC folk programme As I Roved Out.

    From the 1950s onwards, Roberts appeared in folk clubs and festivals. He gained the reputation as a great story teller, distinctive singer and charismatic personality. In 1966, Roberts read five sea-faring stories on the BBC children's programme Jackanory.[1]

    As Thames Barges became increasingly economically unfeasible, Everards offered to sell Roberts the Cambria, which he ran as owner-skipper between 1966 and 1970 when it was finally sold to the Maritime Trust. He then bought a replacement, a small motor coaster called the Vectis Isle, in which he carried various cargoes (china clay from Cornwall, coke, soya beans, grain, scrap metal, etc.) around the UK and over to the Continent.

    In the seventies Roberts and his wife moved to live on the Isle of Wight where he made his last two records, as well joining in sing-alongs. After Toni died in 1978, Roberts married his second wife Sheila (née Blackburn).

    Bob Roberts died in 1982 at the age of 74.

  • Abandon Me - Singer Songwriter, acoustic, unplugged original song , unsigned artist


    Strange song this one, where it came from and what it means. I won't try and guess at it, it is more fun to let you decide. What I especially like about it, is it feels channeled from a place that is generally foreign to me. Spirituality is something that fascinates me, something I think I am and loss of faith is equally intriguing, however, this comes across ambiguous, yet underpinned by some kind of truth or someones story. Perhaps that is why I am excited by this one, because it feels like someone else's story.

    A couple of lines in it do have particular meaning for me personally; 'They turned their backs, they closed their hearts. I know their disappointed in me' resonates - I put them in to describe a sensation I felt acutely, going against my Liberal roots and voting for Britain to leave the EU. I felt guilty for upsetting people I care for, the contempt for me was barely disguised, I had confused everyone and was gently cast as a traitor. I noticed afterwards and for a good while that when I spoke or wrote or messaged on social media, I could sense my words netted in some filter, captured for analysis, to be picked over suspiciously.

    I'm in danger of shaping the story. I'll stop now. Please listen, hopefully enjoy, it would be an honor to get your feedback or better still have you subscribe.

  • The Zebra Dun


    Adam Miller sings “The Zebra Dun,” a traditional American cowboy folksong, Salt Lake City, Utah, September 18, 2015. Videography by Robert C. Richmond,, Adam Miller's website is;
    • An early version of Zebra Dun entitled Bow-Legged Ike was printed in _Cattle Ranch to College_ by Russell Doubleday (1899). The author says the song was first heard in Montana about 1875 from a horse wrangler named Curran. Curran was of medium height, stoop-shouldered, and rather bow-legged from long contact with a horse's round body. He was awkward and stiff when afoot... In the saddle ... seemingly a part of the beast he rode.
    • The version Adam sings first appeared as the Educated Feller in _Songs of the Cowboys_ by N. Howard Thorpe (1908). Thorp says he first heard the song in 1890, by Randolph Reynolds at Carrizzozo Flats and that the song was significantly enriched and expanded during and after the Spanish American War.
    • Regarding authorship of this song, Texas folklorist J. Frank Dobie, in his personal copy of John A. Lomax' _Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads_ (1910) wrote: John Custer, trail driver, told me that while he was on the Z-Bar-L Ranch north of Big Spring in '80's a 'slim fellow wearing a little hat' and not looking anything like a cowboy came into camp, asked for a job, and was given an outlaw to ride - one of the Z-L horses. 'Rode him to a fare-you-well.' Then the song started.
    • John A. Lomax wrote that the Zebra Dun song was, ...said to be composed by Negro Jake working for Evans and Means, Valentine, Texas. In 1938, in the enlarged Cowboy Songs and Frontier Ballads, Jake is identified as the camp cook for the ranch.
    • Dane Cooledge, in an article called Cowboy Songs, published in Sunset Magazine, XXIX (Nov. 1912) ascribes authorship of Zebra Dun to Sam Roberts.
    • William Croft Barnes, veteran rancher, described a zebra dun horse as an animal generally of a claybank or buckskin shade, with dark zebra stripes across his withers and around both forelegs. He also said that many cowboys believed that the mother of a zebra dun had mule blood in her system.

  • My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose - Robert Burns - Window Sessions III


    My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose
    Daisy Chute: Vocal/Guitar
    Written by Robert Burns

    Window Sessions III was filmed in Scotland, this time at my family home near Edinburgh.
    There's always been a portrait of the Scottish bard Robert Burns at this window on the stairs and it seems only fitting to film one of his most famous songs at it. This is the beautiful song My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose, which has been covered by many folk since its birth in 1794. This version starts with the traditional a capella folk song style which is standard for many Scots songs and is often the way it's performed at Burns Nights. For this version though, I bring the guitar part in after the first verse in a new arrangement.

  • On that Train by Phil Knapper


    Phil Knapper was a Coventry singer song writer (and friend) who travelled to Finland with Neil O'Connor (Hazel's brother), John Gravenor, Alex Murphy in the early 70's. He was a talented guitar player, rock and classical. We met at the Hobo Workshop - important Coventry venue (Holyhead Youth Centre) in 1974. His younger brother was Stu Knapper - leader of the late 70's Coventry Punk Band Riot Act. Sadly he passed away in the 1990's and the only recordings we have of him are ones I recorded on a mono cassette play while jamming in 1977. This is from that informal session.
