  1. My favorite opening lines by Mr Plant:

    "O, let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dreams"-Middle of june, 40 degrees outside, when i first heard kashmir. Right off, you feel like you're in the Thar desert

    "Been dazed and confused for so long its not true"- Plant was the first person to sing with so much raw emotion. There was nothing holding him back.

    "Leaves are falling all around,its time i was on my way"-I'm a Tolkien fan, I've read namarie, enough said.

    What are yours?

  2. hey Ringwraith

    i am no stranger to qawwali music or Nusrat & party, of course.

    you got some fine ideas here for new recordings (what about a Thoombi for the Whole Lotta Love riff?) but i was actually referring to EXISTING recordings.

    try & find the 1972 Bombay sessions of JP & RP if u haven´t heard these yet.

    And it would be a LOT of fun to mash up some Dhols with Bonzo´s Montreux!

    where could i find these without illegally downloading them, any site where u could order these, because there aren't too many zeppelin session tapes available where i'm from. but i do remember hearing a JP and RP version of battle of evermore with an indian singer doing the "dance in the dark night" part. is that included in the bombay sessions?

    nice to hear that nusrat's got some fans on this forum

  3. A Qawwali version of Kashmir. Plant's singing is heavily influenced by the sufi singers on kashmir.

    Bhangra cover of misty mountain hop. Thats a punjabi genre, thats kind of like R and B. substitute Dhols for drums but keep the keyboard riff.

    Dhols for whole lotta love as well. again, plant sounds like a sufi singer in that.

    listen to some music by nusrat fateh ali khan, that'll give you an idea of what sufism is about.

    Sitar in battle of evermore and stairway. you could even do the solo with a sitar
