Friday Random 10: 2/5/2010

February 5, 2010, 8:00 am

Friday music time again, and just about the only thing I’ve had time to post this week due to classes starting back:

  1. Texas Flood (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Greatest Hits)
  2. 40 Days (Third Day, Come Together)
  3. Who’s Been Talkin’ (Howlin’ Wolf, His Best: Chess 50th Anniversary)
  4. Man in the Green Shirt (Weather Report, Best of Weather Report)
  5. Waiting on the World to Change (John Mayer, Continuum)
  6. Where You Are (Rich Mullins, The World As Best As I Remember It v. 1)
  7. Heavy On My Mind (Back Door Slam, Roll Away)
  8. Try (John Mayer Trio, Try! (Live))
  9. Living Loving Maid (She’s Just A Woman) (Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II)
  10. Doing It To Death (James Brown, The CD of JB)

Normally I would take one of the entries in the list that gets my attention and do a video focus on it. This time… Well, the classic Led Zeppelin chestnut “Living Loving Maid” (#9) makes me think of the fantastic cover done by Dread Zeppelin. You know — that band that does Led Zeppelin covers, only they’re done in a reggae style and using a late-70′s era Elvis impersonator as their lead singer. Sadly, I couldn’t find a video for that. So instead, here’s the video for their version of “Your Time Is Gonna Come”, which Robert Plant once said he preferred to the original.
