6 ‘Blue Train’
From: Page and Plant, ‘Walking Into Clarksdale’ (1998)
After reuniting (without fellow Zep survivor John Paul Jones) for the ‘No Quarter’ MTV special and an extensive tour, Page and Plant recorded a brand-new studio album together. It’s a more subdued and mature affair than some were hoping for, with Page adding texture and tasteful accents as often as he just stood front and center riffing away. Still, his extensive soloing on this sultry, slow-burning number deserves much more attention than it got when it first came out.
