Betty Harris recorded "Trouble with My Lover", an Allen back in 1968. Maria Muldar (yes, the "Midnight at the Oasis lady) in 1994.
It has been resurrected by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss.
Allen Toussaint (who produced "Lady Marmalade" for LaBelle) wrote the song, and Plant & Krauss covered another one of his songs 14 years ago on their first release.
"Trouble with My Lover" is a highlight for their new disk. Actually, this live version from Steven Colbert's show is close to, but better than, the recorded version.
I sit in awe and try to figure out how Krauss sings as she does. She's the star here, maybe right behind the band. Plant never over-reaches and his backing vocals are just that.
She is wonderful! Alison Krauss , is a miracle.
I have never heard of Ms. Krauss until now.
