re: A wonderful version of Kashmir

Recommended Posts

Sorry she died young, nice voice but without the riff it didn't do anything for me, I kept waiting and thinking it was going to kick in and move on a notch but it didn't, atmospheric though.

Thanks for posting that. I'm a big fan of Ofra (yes it's a terrible shame she died so young). I like the version, not only because she has a beautiful voice but I like that she totally made it her own, rather than trying to sound like Zep.

Wow, Thanks for posting, Euro. I thought that was beautiful! If she was still around I could see her touring with Robert!! Maybe even cooler than Alison <_< She even looks a little like his ex Maureen too.

She has a very nice voice. It is sad that she is gone.

But compared to the Original by Zep, no comparrison.

It doesn't move me the way Zeppelin does.

I believe I've posted this version on another thread several weeks ago ...I think it is an interesting version too. she really took the song to a different place so you can hardly recognize it is "Kashmir".

I believe she's the best female vocalist that came out from Israel...it is really sad she died so young

That's what I was thinking. Great singing, but the instrumental arrangement was just bland. Without the drums and guitar, it just doesn't have the force that it should have. I felt the same way about the Plant/Krauss versions of Black Dog and When The Levee Breaks.

I don't really judge the song by comparing it to the original. I see it as someone else taking the lyrics and making the song what they feel. It's done all the time. I don't really judge it against Zep's true version, I see it more as an honest interpretation of a song whose "soul" would be best understood by this middle eastern performer. I see her rendition as a supreme compliment to the original version of Kashmir, which Led Zeppelin created.
