‘Raise The Roof’ finds Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Robert Plant and 27-time Grammy-winner Alison Krauss reunited after some fourteen years, following the historic success of their first collaboration ‘Raising Sand’ (2007), which generated multi-platinum sales and earned six Grammy Awards including Album and Record of the Year.
Like its predecessor, ‘Raise The Roof’ was produced by T Bone Burnett, who worked with Plant and Krauss to expand their collaboration in thrilling new directions, accompanied by drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarists Marc Ribot, David Hidalgo, Bill Frisell, and Buddy Miller, bassists Dennis Crouch and Viktor Krauss, along with pedal steel guitarist Russ Pahl among others.
The album features twelve new recordings of songs by legends and unsung heroes including Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch and more.
Other highlights include a Plant-Burnett original, “High and Lonesome”, and the classic “Can’t Let Go”, written by Randy Weeks and first recorded by Lucinda Williams.
