initial try, and, if you watch closely at the end, Plant really seems to be
pleased (or maybe relieved) that they pulled this one off.

I can think of several other Plant solo tunes that I'd love to hear out of
the SSS, and based on the last leg of the BOJ tour a couple of years ago (a
one-off of "All of My Love," as an example), there may well be a few more
surprises in the set lists as the US tour winds down over the next week or
