Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - Live

I recently had the pleasure of watching Robert Plant and Alison Krauss perform live on CMT's Crossroads thanks to a "heads-up" e-mail from our young miss. They played a number of songs from "Raising Sand", most notably "Gone, Gone, Gone" which sounded more fleshed out and robust than the studio version. However, the highlight of the concert for me was their amazing deconstruction of the Led Zeppelin classic "When The Levee Breaks". I laughed out loud when the banjo player plucked the bridge while in the back of my mind I heard Jimmy Page soloing at 150 decibels.
