This Sunday on Fine Tuning I’ll do a deep dive into “Raise the Roof,” the long-awaited second collaboration between Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. The follow-up to their 2007 Grammy-winning release “Raising Sand,” Plant & Krauss do brilliant interpretations of songs written by Hank Williams, Calexico, Allen Toussaint, Merle Haggard, Bert Jansch, Lucinda Williams and others. Produced to perfection by T-Bone Burnett and featuring stellar backup from David Hidalgo, Marc Ribot, Jay Bellerose and Dennis Crouch, “Raise the Roof” is without a doubt one of the best albums of 2021! Fine Tuning: Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m. on ann arbor’s 107one.
