Back in 1988, the Atlantic Records label held its 40th Anniversary celebrations at New York's Madison Square Garden. The event, dubbed ‘It's Only Rock And Roll’ featured an amazing lineup of artists from the label’s (then) 40-year history made up a non-stop concert that lasted almost 13 hours! 

Robert Plant was particularly busy that night. Prior to closing the whole show with his Led Zep bandmates (the first time Page, Plant and Jones had played together since Live Aid in 1985 – with the addition of Jason Bonham on drums), the singer was also on hand to perform a solo set that included “Heaven Knows”, “Ship Of Fools” and this high-octane rendition of “Tall Cool One”.

With his spine-tingling wail backed by hard rock guitars – it’s the sort of performance that only stands to prove what makes Robert Plant one of the greatest frontmen in rock history! 

“Tall Cool One” and more feature on a new special limited edition 7’’ singles box set that has just been released called Digging Deep. The eight-disc collection also features restored artwork from the original 7’’ releases, packaged in a bespoke hardback book. Check it out here
