Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Classics never die

I was listening to Guerrilla Radio and something odd caught my ear. The song was American Woman, but the voice resembled Robert Plant‘s. I may not be a “rocker” anymore, but once a Led Zep fan, always one… So I was wondering when on earth did Plant record this song and how come his voice sounded so good (like the good ol’ days), since I knew that he lost it through age and rock’n’roll excesses (should you wish to disagree, listen the beautiful Rain Song here and then here).

Checking the song, I found out that I was mistaking, the song was performed by The Guess Who, and they surely sounded like Led Zep’s Plant singing next to Cream‘s Eric Clapton.

Here are the videos, enjoy some true classics (and mind the similarities :) ):

There seems to be some problems with embedding youtube movies, here are the links (I’ll try to fix this again later):

American Woman – The Guess Who

Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin

I Feel Free – Cream
