Listening Booth – Robert Plant, “Big Log”

It didn’t take Robert Plant long after the breakup of Led Zeppelin to find his musical footing.  From his superb 1983 sophomore effort, The Principle of Moments, here’s “Big Log”.  The song reached the Top 20 in both the U.S. and U.K., and the video complements it perfectly.

To this day “Big Log” is my favorite Plant track, helped in no small measure by the top-rate guitar playing of Robbie Blunt.  Blunt left Plant’s band in 1985 and has kept a pretty low profile since, doing occasional session work for various artists.

  • Weird. I think I remember this from before I knew who Robert Plant was. His 80s output frustrates me. Like a lot of “classic rockers” the music was great, but the production was so bad. I think all rock albums from that decade need to be remastered to remove the reverb/echo (and probably any saxophone).
