On the Robert Plant / Alison Krauss duet album, Plant sings an interesting version of Fortune Teller.

He delivers it in a slow bluesy drawl, nothing at all like the frantic tempo of the Hollies version.

I like it. Below is the official website.

In the upper left corner of the website, you can listen to the song. Fortune Teller is the 9th song on the album.

Their cover of the Everly Brothers' "Gone Gone Gone" is absolutely great, too.

I just stumbled across this link - more of Alison Krauss & Robert Plant together.

This is the show "Crossroads" on CMT (a cable network that shows country videos.

I gotta tall you, though, despite the country/bluegrass influence of Alison Krauss, there are some fine blues licks on The Boy That Couldn't Hoe Corn."

And the live performance of "Gone Gone Gone" is just flat out fun, much like I imagine a live performance by the Everly Brothers would have been.

I attended their great show in Oslo, a clip of the Zeppelin song Black dog I recorded can be heard (and seen, but the distance was too great for my mobile) on YouTube:

Would you believe the Hollies had power to stay by evolution of their style from Buddy Holly ? That's for certain because they follow what goes around, write on and go out on the road. They did it then, they do it now - please do it always.
