's big shot at rock's mass audience
was her duet
with Robert Plant
on this acoustic
number from Led Zeppelin's untitled fourth album
(Side 1, Track 3, immediately prior to Stairway To Heaven
-- can't get better exposure
than that). The title and much of the lyric refer to Lord Of The Rings
. Echoed, riffing mandolins
dominate the intrumental. Overall it has a mystical, vaguely spooky tone that that AOR
" radio likes to save for after midnight.
Covered reverently by The Lovemongers, a side project of Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson.
