Robert Plant and Alison Krauss

Not much going on this morning, so let's hear a bit about the new Plant/Krauss collaboration (USA Today):
Raising Sand, recorded in Nashville and California with producer T Bone Burnett, taps into shared musical turf. They harmonize on two songs by Byrds co-founder Gene Clark and another pair from the Everly Brothers catalog, but the originals barely hint at the places Plant and Krauss take them. Other songs come from Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt, Doc Watson and Naomi Neville.
I'm all for it, then.
