Bond

Filed under: Playlist — mlah @ 1:09 am

seldom do i ever favor a cover to the original. i almost always like the original versions of songs better. but once in a while….

a friend put what is in all probability the first version she’s ever heard of zeppelin’s ‘kashmir’ up on her myspace account. i heard it when i looked at her page. i hope she has listened to a little zeppelin though.
i love it. kashmir never quite had the real moroccan feel to me that robert plant intended when he spent all of that time in marrakesh (i think it was marrakesh. i know it was morocco) studying music, and which gave us the song of the same name.

instrumental, no lyrics….. but that’s just my license to sing them in my car on the way to work tomorrow!

oh, and get this. want to see the artist who impressed me so much that i prefer their version of kashmir to page and company?

and really, i couldn’t believe it when i saw their pic. if i had seen their pic before i heard the song, i would never have listened to it. awesome version of kashmir. send me an email if you would like to evaluate it for yourself.

  2. Is this the live concert version they did, and it was released some time ago? It’s freakin’ awesome. Now that I go looking for it…I think it’s been “borrowed” by someone…I’ll have to ask him.

  3. I have a Bond album sitting unopened on my book shelf. Think it’s called “Shine” or something.

  4. Thanks for sending it to me…I like it! 🙂
    Still love the Zepplin version too though. It’s classic.
