The Waybacks with John Cowan | Covering Led Zeppelin II

Normally, I don't post much about bands from San Francisco that are chock full of mandolins, violins and acoustic guitars. However, when they cover the entire Led Zeppelin II album, I start typing.

The Waybacks were joined by, former New Grass Revival lead singer, John Cowan at MerleFest last week and performed the entire classic Zeppelin album straight through. The performance isn't entirely acoustic though; someone in there wails on an electric guitar at key parts. And I have to give credit to Cowan for doing a fine job with Robert Plant's vocals. Overall, it's a fun show to listen to.

Thankss to Bill Koucky for recording it off of WMVY's broadcast and sending it over.
