  1. Except that these new versions aren't inverted. They may appear that way at first glance but they aren't (try inverting the new Zep 1 and 2 covers).
  2. Not playing Black Dog the same way twice is one thing, not playing it like Zep used to play it is another thing. I'm not really talking about either. The way he has played it for a while now is farther and farther from the "Black Dog riff." The only part that really remains are the lyrics. It's as if he said "hey, let's just rap the Black Dog lyrics over this jam we've been working on." Sure, they're flexible like that and they come up with some creative arrangements and I respect that it's his prerogative to do whatever the hell he wants with his songs but it can sometimes be stretched past the point of relevance. I guess I would just like to hear him play it with a little more of the spirit of the original. Over the years he has played plenty of his solo and Zep material that have been creatively arranged to include his current musical tastes yet retain their essence enough to still have resonance with fans. For me this version of Black Dog really doesn't. I have liked what he has done with some other Zep songs with Krauss, Band Of Joy and the Space Shifters. Houses Of The Holy and Rock & Roll come to mind off the top of my head but there have been other tunes as well. Black Dog has lately sounded like he is trying to force the lyrics into something else completely different.
  3. Is Robert Plant ever going to play a Black Dog that sounds like Black Dog again?
