"Operator" from 66 to Timbuktu

Recommended Posts

I absolutley adore the quality of Robert's voice and his singing on this pre-Zeppelin track. I think it was done with Alexis Korner if my aging brain cells are still firing. My question is, is this track a one off or is there more? Official? Bootleg? Outtakes? Anything?

Bueller? B)

Any other info you know about how it came about would be interesting, too.

There is a cd called 66 to tinbuk two...it has several pre-zep tunes on it.

Yes I know, but I think only one of this particular line up. I was wondering if there was more beyond this one track. :)

W/ the group Listen, there is You better Run, and Everybody's Gonna Say, both from Oct 66

There's his solo CBS single w/ Our Song, and Laughin' Crying Laughin' from march 67

Then a release w/ Plant (Bonzo's on it too) w/ Long Time Coming, and I've Got A Secret from Sep 67

Then the Band Of Joy stuff, w/ For What It's Worth, Got To Find My baby, and Hey Joe, from 68

then W/ Alexis Corner, there is Operator, and Steal Away. both 68

all of which were available on a boot titled Pre Zep 64-68.....out LONG before Plant relased some of them officially. They also contain Page's and JPJ's early solo works, and some pre Zep band collaborations....like a great blues medley w/ PJ Proby.

I LOVE Plant's singing on this early stuff. A real soul crooner if I ever heard one.

You can find some of his other pre-zep stuff on the bootleg Cabala. It's pretty easy to hunt down.

It's likely that additional songs were recorded (the duo had planned to record an entire album together), but so far only two songs have surfaced.

Robert also sat in on a BBC session with Korner but the session has not surfaced.
