The _Calgary Herald_ printed the following review on November 13, 1994. Jimmy Page & Robert Plant: No Quarter/ Jimmy Page & Robert Plant Unledded (Atlantic). No less than 14 years have passed since the hammer of the gods was heard no more thanks to drummer John Bonham meeting a rather ignominious ending by choking to death on his own vomit. The surviving members have gone on their own not-so-merry way with only singer Robert Plant enjoying a modicum of creative success with his solo projects. And so the news of Plant teaming with Zep guitarist Jimmy Page for their own MTV Unledded special was met more with curiosity than hope for this pairing to match, let alone surpass, the glory of what was. And yet they have done so. Even though the band Led Zeppelin died with Bonham -- and the fact that bassist John Paul Jones is absent from this affair -- Page and Plant have rekindled that group's essence. With western and middle eastern musicians, they have revisited classics like Kashmir and Gallows Pole, blissfully wedding their hard-rock and blues with folk and middle eastern influences that bring a new dynamic dimension to these songs. Electric, acoustic, percussive, exotic, hypnotic, passionate, Page and Plant have managed a new chapter to the story of Led Zeppelin when it seemed the book had been closed for good. Amazing. Record Track 1301 (J.M.) Rating: A
