Along, Way Down That Road

Robert Plant

This is the place to start, and this is the man to start the journey through Birmingham's music scene, past and present, with. From The Band of Joy, to the remenants of The Yardbirds, through, Led Zeppelin to The Priory of Brion, and thus to his current band, Strange Sensation, Robert Plant has been there, at the forefront, the familiar voice soaring through every song he sings, whether it be  traditional blues, traditional folk (yes it's true, click here to see Bob fronting Fairport Convention)
We'll be touching on all the phases of Plant's career, though most of the photographs will be of Bob as he is now, we, here, at Brum Beat feel, that enough has been written about Led Zeppelin, to last a life time or two, which is not a bad thing by any means, but there is no real need to add anything else. There will be a couple of pictures of course, and a couple of links, but there are other stages that need to be looked at too.

Morning Dew

At Warwick University, UK.  2005

As is stated elsewhere on this page, the sound sample you are listening to is Morning Dew, as sung by Robert Plant, on his Dreamland album. Morning Dew was made famous by the American singer Tim Rose . Though some sources give Tim Rose a co-writing credit, the song was in fact written and composed by the Canadian guitarist/songwriter, Bonnie Dobson, it is Rose's arrangement that is the most well known. The song has been on Bobs's  song list for a few years now, so with that in mind, we decided to print the lyrics to the song, with a bit of the song's history, as well as some information about Bonnie Dobson. All part of our desire to impart as much information as possible, to you, besides, we're huge fans of Robert Plant.....
 
A Note: Depending on who is singing Morning Dew, words seem to change. The lyrics printed below are Bonnie Dobson's originals.

 
Morning Dew

Take me for a walk in the morning dew, my honey
Take me for a walk in the morning sun, my love
You can't go walking in the morning dew today
You can't go walking in the morning sun today

But listen, I hear a man moaning, lord
Oh yes, I hear a man moaning, lord
You didn't hear a man moan at all
You didn't hear a man moan at all

But I thought I heard my baby crying mama
Oh yes I hear my baby crying mama
You'll never hear your baby cry again
You'll never hear your baby cry again

Oh where have all the people gone?
Won't you tell me, where have all the people gone?
Don't you worry 'bout the people any more
Don't you worry 'bout the people any more

Won't you take me for a walk in the morning dew my love
Please take me for a walk in the morning sun my honey
You can't go walking in the morning dew today
You can't go walking in the morning sun today

But listen, I hear a man moaning lord
Oh you didn't hear a man moan at all
But I'm sure I hear my baby crying mama
You'll never hear your baby cry again

Oh where have all the people gone?
Won't you tell me where have all the poeple gone?
Don't you worry about the people any more
Oh don't you worry about the people any more
Don't you worry about the people any more
