Released today (October 2nd) is Digging Deep, Robert Plant's double-disc solo compilation. The 30-track collection ties in with the third season of his critically acclaimed podcast of the same name, and includes three previously unreleased songs. The set features such Plant favorites as “Big Log,” “Heaven Knows,” “In The Mood,” “Ship Of Fools,” “Hurting Kind,” and “Angel Dance,” among others.
Among the guest appearances on the various tracks, which span Plant's now-38-year solo career, are Jimmy Page, Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, Phil Collins, Nigel Kennedy, Richard Thompson, and his side band Strange Sensation/ the Sensational Space Shifters.
Robert Plant believes that change and exploring one's musical landscape is the primary reason for his success: “I've spent my whole career trying to vary what I do — in fact from the Band Of Joy, before I was chosen to be the singer in the Yardbirds, I always tried to change and vary my music. I used to steal from somebody, borrow from somebody else to create something I really enjoy. And when I teamed up with (Jimmy) Page with Led Zeppelin, we constantly tried to search — in fact I looked at some old interview — we're always trying to change, to modify and to bring in new affectations to our music.”
