Wednesday 9/22/21 1:10am ET: Feature LP: Honeydrippers – Volume One (1984)

The Honeydrippers: Volume One is an EP released on September 24, 1984, by a band led by rock singer Robert Plant. The project originated when Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertegun wanted to record an album of his favorite songs from the 1950s. Plant was chosen because Ertegun had seen his pick-up band the Honeydrippers performing 1950s standards. Included in the band were Chic front man Nile Rodgers, Late Night with David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer, and former Yardbirds guitarists Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page—the latter was also Plant’s former bandmate in Led Zeppelin.

Robert Plant has stated that this is his personal favorite project that he ever recorded.

The album was re-released in a remastered edition in 2007 as part of a Robert Plant remaster series, with the live version of “Rockin’ at Midnight” (previously released on the 12-inch single version of the studio recording) included as a bonus track. Plant and Ertegun discussed the possibility of doing another Honeydrippers album, but with the latter’s death in December 2006, the plan was shelved permanently.
