Out today (July 10th) on DVD and Blu-ray is Robert Plant & Band Of Joy's appearance on PBS' Live From The Artists Den. The DVD, which marks the first of the Artists Den episodes to see official release, features Band Of Joy's performance at Nashville's War Memorial Auditorium and includes selections from the band's self-titled debut, material from Plant's solo career -- as well as such Led Zeppelin favorites as, "Black Dog," "Tangerine," "Ramble On," "Houses Of The Holy," "Gallows Pole," and "Rock And Roll." PBS will begin airing the special as part of the national pledge drive starting on July 26th. Check your local listings for stations and times.
The complete tracklist to Robert Plant & Band Of Joy's Live From The Artists Den DVD is: "Black Dog," "Angel Dance," "Houses Of The Holy,' 'House Of Cards," 'Cindy, I'll Marry You Someday," 'Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down," "Somewhere Trouble Don't Go," "Tangerine,' 'A Satisfied Mind," "Move Up,' 'Down To The Sea,' "Ramble On," "Gallows Pole," "In the Mood," "Rock And Roll," "and "I Bid You Goodnight."
Robert Plant told us that Band Of Joy represented to him a chance to shed his musical skin and experience and create music in a wholly different fashion than with Led Zeppelin or his previous solo works: "It's a state of mind for me. I've been through a thousand different sort of complexions of color and music and mood and success."
