Monday: Robert Plant @ Wolverhampton Civic Hall. I`m not going to write a review, @NigelT has already done that for The Goldem Mane`s UK `17 tour and far better than I could. I would just like to say that at “three score & nine” (Robert`s words last night) Mr Plant was feckin` marvelous, his voice has no right to belong to an old fella his age. His band were something special also, a performance I will remember for a long time.
Tuesday: When this was delivered by a white van man from the tax dodgers I wondered why the feck I had bought this. I`m not really a fan and they are 80% white men playing black man`s music. However I can`t resist a bargain and at £27 for 19 CDs well you know it`s part of my illness and I had to have it.
I am rambling on about the Average White Band a bunch of men from Scotland playing funky R&B and I love it. I`m 4 CDs in and completely won over. Bloody great band and this in a week when Mavis Staples has received numerous plays on the Harkonnen wind-up phonogram.
I wonder what`s in store for the rest of the week?
