When Led Zeppelin hung it up in 1980, Robert Plant wasted no time in mounting a solo career that would exceed all expectations. The singer went beyond the blue-rock format he was famous for, exploring variances of Celtic and English folk, American blues, early rock 'n' roll, psychedelic rock and jazz as well as Arabic, Moroccan, West African, Indian — you name it. To commemorate Plant’s illustrious run, Rhino has reissued all nine of his solo albums with bonus tracks and expanded packaging. Yeah, that’s right, we’re talking Pictures At Eleven, The Principle Of Moments, Shaken 'N' Stirred, The Honeydrippers Volume 1, Now & Zen, Manic Nirvana, Fate Of Nations, Dreamland, and even his most recent disc from 2005, Mighty Rearranger.

While all these releases with the extra trimmings were part of 2006’s Nine Lives box set, having the option to choose the best of the batch is liberating, to say the least. Plant’s eclectic tendencies could be disconcerting to the casual fan looking to add a few titles to an existing Zeppelin collection, so having them all might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Pictures At Eleven, the singer’s first solo foray from 1982, predictably incorporates elements of the bombastic slam for which the golden voice earned his stripes; however, the tone and sheen resonates with a forward-thinking ebb and flow. Guitarist Robbie Blunt weaves his own unique and sly pattern throughout, while heavy hitting drummers Phil Collins and Cozy Powell drive each and every song with Bonham-like intensity.

The Principle Of Moments, the 1983 follow-up, extended the formula and produced “Big Log” and “In The Mood,” two Top 40 singles unlike anything Plant recorded with Zeppelin. Even as 1985’s Shaken ‘N Stirred and its single “Little By Little” piled on the pop fragrances and alienated various sectors of the flock, 1988’s Now And Zen made amends by mixing up elements of the singer’s past with the present. In fact, “Tall Cool One” features Jimmy Page on guitar and a few odd Zeppelin samples just to remind the listener that the singer hasn't forgotten where he came from. Still, tracks like ‘Heaven Knows” and “Ship Of Fools” reaffirm the vocalist’s intentions of moving forward without going over a cliff.

Despite flashes of glory, both Manic Nirvana and Fate Of Nations, Plant’s only two solo ventures of the 90s, more or less fell between the cracks, leading some insiders to speculate that his reunion with Jimmy Page was inevitable. With six solo albums under his belt, along with 1984's The Honeydrippers, Volume 1 — a one-off, five-song EP that Plant put together with Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Niles Rodgers, and others to salute early rock and R&B influences — the singer was in the unique position of dictating how the Page-Plant project would proceed, Of course, 1994’s No Quarter was a showcase of rearranged Zeppelin classics that went on to become a major milestone for both Page and Plant. The follow-up, 1998’s Walking Into Clarksdale, which featured all new original material, failed to sustain the momentum and limped slowly into the cut-out bins.

The one redeeming feature about the Page-Plant union was that the singer emerged unscathed with a flotilla of new ideas. But it wasn’t until 2002 that he returned with a full-blown album called Dreamland. Unlike anything he had released before, this record reached way back to the 60s, alternating wacky originals like “Funny in My Mind (I Believe I'm Fixin' to Die)” and “Red Dress” with obscure classics like Tim Buckley’s “Song Of The Siren,” Tim Rose’s “Morning Dew,” and Jesse Colin Young’s “Darkness Darkness.” Three years later, he enlisted the same band dubbed the Strange Sensation for Mighty Rearranger, which adeptly taps into Plant’s roots while divesting the sheen for crunching rockers like “Shine It All Around.”

What makes the Nine Lives box set (along with the individual reissues) even more unique is the included bonus tracks. Who can resist B-sides like “Far Post” from Pictures At Eleven, “Oompa (Watery Bint)” from Manic Nirvana, or “All The Money In The World” from Mighty Rearranger; unreleased songs like "Turnaround" from The Principal Of Moments; demos like “Rollercoaster” from Fate Of Nations; remixes like "Little By Little" from Shaken ‘N Stirred or "Last Time I Saw Her” from Dreamland; or any number of live cuts that fill in the gaps on practically every CD of the set. Most of all, it’s a miracle to see how much Robert Plant has progressed and maintained his sense of integrity. Clearly, the voice of Led Zeppelin has much more music inside him, ready to burst and burn for years to come.

Pictures At Eleven (1982)

Label: Rhino/Atlantic | Cat.№: R2 78778 A

Pictures at Eleven is the debut solo album by former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant, released in 1982. Genesis drummer Phil Collins played drums for six of the album's eight songs. Ex-Rainbow drummer Cozy Powell handled drums on "Slow Dancer" and "Like I've Never Been Gone." The title is an often-heard phrase in U.S. television news[citation needed] that would follow a brief announcement of a story of interest to be shown later during a station's 11 p.m. news program.

Pictures at Eleven is the only one of Plant's solo albums to appear on Led Zeppelin's record label Swan Song. By the time of Plant's next release, 1983's The Principle of Moments, Swan Song had ceased to function and Plant had started his own label titled Es Paranza, which would also be distributed by Atlantic Records.

The Principle of Moments is the second solo album by former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant. It was Plant's second top 10 album in the US and UK. It also gave him his first solo Top 40 hit with "Big Log". The most popular track on album-oriented rock radio in the US was "Other Arms", which reached number one on the Billboard Top Tracks chart. Genesis drummer Phil Collins played drums for six of the album's eight songs (as he did on Pictures at Eleven). On the other two tracks former Jethro Tull drummer Barriemore Barlow performed.

Like Plant's first solo album, Pictures at Eleven, the songs departed from the hard rock of Led Zeppelin. Following the strength of these albums, Plant launched a successful tour in 1983. Phil Collins was the drummer for Plant's band on this tour. Collins was content to perform in the background, despite his own enormous success as a solo artist and with Genesis at the time. Little Feat's Richie Hayward played drums for the Australasian leg of the tour.

The Honeydrippers: Volume One is an EP released on 24 September 1984, by a band led by rock singer Robert Plant. The project originated when Atlantic Records president Ahmet Erteg?n wanted to record an album of his favourite songs from the 1950s. Plant was chosen because Erteg?n had seen his pick-up band the Honeydrippers performing 1950s standards. Included in the band were Chic front man Nile Rodgers, and former Yardbirds guitarists Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page—the latter was also Plant's former band mate in Led Zeppelin.
