ROBERT PLANT AND THE HONEYDRIPPERS: ROCKIN’ AT MIDNIGHT

Balladeer’s Blog’s shoutout to the Stray Cats last weekend prompted some emails asking for similar music. Before running with any more Stray Cats songs I figured I’d first do this quasi-Stray Cats sounding song from Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and his ad hoc band the Honeydrippers in the 1980s.

    If you hadn’t said who it was I might have guessed this was the Stray Cats or the Brian Setzer Orchestra!

    ” Sea of Love ” became his biggest-selling single. According to Plant, the original single was ” Rockin’ at Midnight ,” with “Sea of Love” as the “B” side. The single was eventually “flipped” because radio stations were playing “Sea of Love” far more than “Rockin’ at Midnight”. Plant feared his career would be ruined by this, and that people would think of him now as a “crooner”, instead of the rock and roll singer he’d always been.

  6. I liked this Lp though most didnt
