I was a bit surprised to find “The Immigrant’s Song” listed among the tracks on Ann Wilson’s new album, Hope & Glory. Led Zeppelin fans will surely recognize that song from an early album. I remember hearing that on my friend’s cassette tape player back in the early 1970’s about a millions time at least.
It’s certainly an interesting version of the classic Zep tune. I’m not sure I’m so crazy about hearing Ann Wilson sing it, but since she has been one of my favorite female singers since I first heard Heart many years ago, I guess I can listen to her sing just about anything and find something about it that I like.
You can hear Wilson’s version of “The Immigrant’s Song” as well as another song called “Where To Now St. Peter?” (which I actually liked a lot better than former) on Ann Wilson’s MySpace page. You can also find a schedule for her live performances and other news.
