Robert Plant & Justin Adams - Win My Train Fare Home

Slow burn Friday night blues with intriguing flavors floating around the background. This is a featured cut from a free CD compilation that comes inside of Uncut magazine. This was originally issued 5 years ago on a covers album that Robert Plant released, but is just as powerful today. The voice, of course, supplies some of the emotion, but the guitar is no shy flower on this cut – digging deep through the bloodstains left lying on the floor. Other shoutouts on the Global-a-go-go album are Manu Chao with Mama Cuchara, Ry Cooder & Ali Farka Toure with Diaraby, and Ali Farka Toure with Penda Yoro. Uncut Magazine
