Song for a Sunday

I've had a couple of days in London, seeing (count 'em) fourteen different people, in six different groupings - including Sakura (Chasing Bawa) today for a blitz of Notting Hill Book & Comic Exchange. I'll share my spoils with you another time - for now let's have a Sunday Song, shall we? This week it's 'Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us' from Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, on their quirky duet album Raising Sand.

  1. Alison Krauss has such a beautiful, haunting voice. I just got the new Alison Krause & Union Station album, Paper Airplane, but now I think I need to go find Raising Sands.

  2. I love this album and this is one of my favourite songs on it!

  3. This song is beautiful! I would've never found it by myself. Thanks a lot.

  4. What an amazing song! Perfect for a road trip through the desert.

  5. How did you know what a favourite of mine AK is? When her songs come up on the shuffle setting of the teensy IPod shuffle, my heart sings as I do my constitutionals round the park. Always reminds me of our son in NYC who bought me the CD on a trip home . Double delight.

  6. Lisa May - I must try some of her other albums... her voice is what makes this record brilliant.

    Claire - awesome! This is easily my favourite track from the album, but I think it really coheres as a whole album, rather than standout tracks.

    Kinga Bee - you're very welcome!

    Dan - not something I'm ever likely to do... but I'll take your word for it ;)

    Martina - oh, fun coincidence!


I've now moved to, and all my old posts are over there too - do come and say hello :)
