Laura Veirs – “The Ocean” (Led Zeppelin Cover)

Laura Veirs might not be the first person to come to mind when thinking about Led Zeppelin covers, but if you remember that Quit Your Day Job interview we did a few years ago, she certainly has chops. Her take on “The Ocean” comes from The Land of Ice And Snow: The Songs of Led Zeppelin, a double CD compilation that features dozens of other unlikely Robert Plant impersonations and the above Carson Ellis Houses Of The Holy-style cover art.
