Robert Plant and “The Magic of Rock” in Mexico’s Vive Latino 2015 festival

I must admit that the best thing about being at the Vive Latino 2015 festival yesterday was that of watching grandiose Robert Plant performing LIVE! One of the best concerts that I have ever been to, if not the best one.

My favourite 2 songs of yesterday’s great show were definitely “Whole Lotta Love”, a Led Zeppelin original (released on 7 November 1969), and “Watching You”, by Robert Plant, from his solo album Nine Lives (released on 21 November 2006).

Literally, Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters —particularly, the amazing English guitarist and producer Justin Adams—, made my day, and changed —for the better— my viewpoint on what someone dear to me once called “The Magic of Rock”.

The Story of “In Another Land”

The song “In Another Land”, by The Rolling Stones, was released as a single in December 1967 (for the US only), the B side of which was “The Lantern”. It was initially recorded at a session in February 1967, but not finished until June of the same year.

The curious story behind the song is that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards didn’t show up that day at the studio, but, as the time was already booked, Bill Wyman decided that it was the perfect moment for him to record a song he had been working at: “In Another Land”.

Its form is related to its content in a very particular way. It is a contrasting verse-chorus form, in which the verse describes a fantastic land in a dream, whereas the chorus is about waking up from that dream.

Bill Wyman leads the vocals, which are treated with a tremolo effect. The keyboard instrument is a harpsichord with string mute applied. Also, the snoring at the very end of it is said to be from Wyman, as Mick and Keith decided it was a good idea to put it there, giving credit to the author as well as making fun of him.

Lyrics are what could be called as “flowery psychedelic”, that might remind us of those of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”, by the Beatles. However, far than an imitation,”In Another Land” is an original title as it was recorded before the famous Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
