Product Description

Time may judge this the worst kind of Led Zep mimicry, but on first listen it generates real excitement. Never mind that Coverdale is a third-rate Robert Plant (particularly as a lyricist). It's enough that the drums do the Stegosaurus stomp, and Page is more in touch with his muse than at any time since Physical Graffiti. "Shake My Tree" is the standout. --Jeff Bateman

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Feb. 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Many Led Zeppelin fans resent Coverdale Page because Jimmy Page was "copying" Zepp - and essentially himself - with this album. That is simply blasphemy. Sure, he did select a singer (David Coverdale) which sounds quite a lot like Robert Plant, but Plant wasn't what made Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin. Who created all of Zepp's riffs that made them so famous? Who wrote the majority of the lyrics? That's right, Jimmy Page. Page was Zepp, and with this album he simply continued what he had been doing years ago. The album cleans up and slightly sophisticates the sound that was displayed on Led Zeppelin's final album, "In Through The Out Door".
This album is solid all the way through. Some of the best rock riffs I've heard in a while, and one of the best I've ever heard. That riff is "Whisper a Prayer For The Dying". Pure genius. Also, I have nothing against System of a Down, they are actually one of my favorite new bands, but listen to "Whisper a Prayer For The Dying" and then listen to their song "Aerials". I've never heard a more obvious rip-off in my life.
Anyway, check this album out. You WON'T regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Zepplin March 6 2004
By Dan
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure which planet these reviewers hail from that say David Coverdale is a Robert Plant "wannabe," because they are very different singers... and Coverdale is the better of the two.This album is very good, and features Jimmy Page like he used to be at Zep's prime... which was NOT their last three albums. Coverdale's voice is a bit raspy... like he just came off a 100 city tour the day before recording, but as always his range and song-writing prowess shine on C-P.I don't give it five stars simply because not every song is a keeper, but the majority are fantastic.Nothing against Robert Plant, but Coverdale is still singing today and his solo albums are fantastic... and he could eat Plant for lunch vocally.A great collaboration between Page and Coverdale and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Feb. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album got a bad rap from some people because Zepplin fans didn't get Robert Plant and a resurrected John Bonham. It's actually very good. From a Led Zepplin perspective, it's a good album; from a Whitesnake perspective, it's a fantastic album. Jimmy Page plays as well as he ever has (barring solos - there's no "Stairway" equivalents here). The songs are really great; some are better than others but no bad ones. David Coverdale, despite the inevitable Plant comparisons, sings wonderfully and shows more range of pitch and style than he ever has. Denny Carmissi is no Bonzo but he gets the job done quite nicely and with a good sound. Jimmy Page produced this album - do you think it wouldn't sound great? Well worth the purchase by Zepplin or Whitesnake fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE REAL DEAL! June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
This may be the most UNDER RATED CD in history. All the flack about Coverdale sounding like Plant, hurt sales. Pay no mind. This is Jimmy Page playing his best since Zeppelin! All the songs are unique. Even the lyrics are right on. This is the release plant should have been on, and HE KNOWS IT! In fact, So jealous was Plant, He was back with Pagey within eight months. Every song is excellent. This disc shows who gave Zeppelin It`s muscle. "SHAKE MY TREE" or "PRIDE AND JOY" or "OVER NOW" will show you the direction Zep may have headed in. TRUST ME....Get this CD and Rock out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstood June 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Coverdale/Page were a great Duo. David Coverdale is in NO way a Plant Clone. He did great things with Deep Purple and continued all through his carreer. The only complaint people seem to have is that Whitesnake got popular during the horrid "Hair Band" time. I have this album and a great Bootleg from Japan that shows the power and ability of this band. If the only real complaint is that Jimmy Page plays guitar like Jimmy Page, get over it!

By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Coverdale/Page released this album back in 1993 and for the most part was under-rated and under-appreciated. The album has two great songs in Pride & Joy and Shake My Tree. The ballads- Take a look at Yourself and Take Me for a little while are beautifully done. David Coverdale and Jimmy Page make an excellent combination. Whitesnake meets Led Zepplin.

Every fan of David Coverdale and Jimmy Page should have this album.

Coverdale Page (1993.) The first and only studio album released as a collaboration between David Coverdale and Jimmy Page.
Former Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has often been called one of the greatest guitarists out there - and with good reason. Likewise, Former Deep Purple and Whitesnake guitarist David Coverdale is considered one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time. But, what if these two musical geniuses were to come together and do an album? In early 1993 they did just that. Read on for my review of Coverdale Page.
This album seems to get very mixed reviews, and I can see why. One of the reviewers who praised the album said it was "the best of both worlds." This is obviously the most understandable viewpoint for this album - I mean, it's not this often two great musical artists join forces and combine their abilities. And on tracks like the opener, Shake My Tree, we see just how well these two can work together. The tracks explore a variety of styles of power rock, from straight-up rockers to power ballads. Unfortunately, there's also a negative side to look at. One of the reviewers who put the album down stated that the duo was "trying too hard to not be Led Zeppelin." Sadly, the band that the duo was trying to be, if any, was Whitesnake - by far the weakest band either of these two musicians ever played in. Had they done a Zeppelin-styled album, they almost surely would have found tremendous success and their album would probably have gone multi-platinum. Too bad they had to stick to the stylings of Whitesnake. Although many of these songs are excellent, many of them will make you think this collaboration was a wasted opportunity.
My final verdict? I recommend this to WHITESNAKE fans.
