Beth Hart - 'Good Times Bad Times' (A Tribute To Led Zeppelin)

In the days of my youth,
I was told what it means to be a man
And now I've reached that age,
I've tried to do all those things the best I can
No matter how I try, I find my way into the same old jam

Good times, bad times,
You know I've had my share
When my woman left home for a brown-eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

Sixteen, I fell in love with a girl as sweet as could be
It only took a couple of days till she was rid of me
She swore that she would be all mine and love me till the end
But when I whispered in her ear, I lost another friend, oh

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share
When my woman left home for a brown-eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

Good times, bad times, you know I've had my share
When my woman left home for a brown-eyed man
But I still don't seem to care

I know what it means to be alone
I sure do wish I was at home
I don't care what the neighbours say
I'm gonna love you each and every day
You can feel the beat within my heart
Realize, sweet babe, we ain't never gonna part



Η Beth Hart είναι καλλιτέχνιδα εξ' Αμερικής (Los Angeles). Τραγουδίστρια, μουσικός και συνθέτρια είναι ενεργή δισκογραφικά από τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ενενήντα αρχικά με το συγκρότημα Beth Hart and The Ocean of Souls και το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο του που "βγήκε" το 1993.

Συνέχισε με προσωπική (solo) καριέρα, ενώ έχει συνεργασθεί με τον (τιτάνα) Joe Bonamassa σε τρεις δίσκους. Έχει κερδίσει οκτώ φορές στους διαγωνισμούς Blues Music Awards (5) και European Blues Awards (3), ενώ ήταν υποψήφια για Grammy (στην κατηγορία "Best Blues Album") το 2014.

Beth Hart - A Tribute To Led Zeppelin
Δελτίο τύπου: «The Grammy-nominated powerhouse vocalist Beth Hart takes on one of her most profound undertakings to date by channelling the legendary voice of Robert Plant on A Tribute To Led Zeppelin.

The album will be released on February 25 via Provogue/Mascot Label Group. The nine track album highlights the incredible musical spectrum that Led Zeppelin operated in. At the helm was super-producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance) and engineer Doug McKean (Goo Goo Dolls, Adam Lambert).

The A-list musicians include Cavallo on guitar along with Tim Pierce, Chris Chaney (bass), Jamie Muhoberac (keyboards); Dorian Crozier (drums), and Matt Laug (drums on Stairway To Heaven. Orchestral arrangements were by David Campbell (Muse, Beyoncé).

All that was left was the final piece of the puzzle... the voice. Things clicked into place when Cavallo was producing Hart's previous album, War In My Mind (2019), and she did an impromptu version of "Whole Lotta Love" in the studio.

He later asked about doing a whole record. Beth said, "I'm not doing this whole album. To do Zeppelin, you've got to be pissed off to hit that right. I can't go there; I've worked years to put my rage away."

She continues, "then the pandemic and all the things around it hit. So now I'm pissed off. I called my manager and said, have Rob and Doug send me all the music because I am ready to do this."

If you were to rewind, you could say the story for a Led Zeppelin album started further back; in May 2004 Hart prowled the stage at the Paradiso in Amsterdam for an incendiary performance of "Whole Lotta Love". The song became a semi-regular fixture in her setlist over the years, including a memorable performance with Slash.

After her phenomenal performance at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors for Buddy Guy, she received a standing ovation from Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones.

Talking about the music and legacy of Zeppelin, she says, "it's so beautifully done, it's timeless. It will go on forever. Sometimes people come along, and they're from another planet, and they make these pieces of art which will forever be."

On a final thought, Beth pauses and reflects to say, "this Zeppelin album allowed me to get all my rage out, and for that, I'm really grateful".»
