It was on this day in 1998, when Jimmy Page and Robert Plant released their reunion album Walking into Clarksdale. Clarksdale is a town in the Mississippi Delta, a historical home of Delta blues music. The album took only 35 days to record, with legendary punk producer/mixer Steve Albini at the helm.
The album debuted on the Billboard's Billboard 200 album chart at No. 8, while reaching No. 3 on the UK Album Chart. The single "Most High" reached No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and No. 26 in the UK. "Most High" went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1999. Plant re-recorded the song "Please Read the Letter" with Alison Krauss for their 2007 collaboration album Raising Sand (below). This re-recording won the Record of the Year award at the 2009 Grammy Awards.
