Yeah, that one's great.  I even basically respect Robert Plant as a solo
artist; he's very open-minded and musically adventurous compared to just
about all of his contemporaries... but that transition to The Fall is a real
switchover to The Real Shit.  The Fall weren't even in an especially
tremendous phase at the time, but somehow the brought spectacular "Oh, yeah?
 Well fuck off, how about THIS" vibe to the performance.  I'm certain most
of the viewing audience was flummoxed... good job, lads!
