Walking Into Clarksdale

Walking Into Clarksdale is a studio album by Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant, released by Atlantic Records on April 21, 1998. The follow-up album to No Quarter, Walking into Clarksdale took 35 days to record, with co-production by Nirvana producer Steve Albini. Like the preceeding recording and tour, John Paul Jones was not present. The single "Most High" was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1999. Clarksdale is a town in the North Mississippi Delta, a historical home of Delta blues music.

The album was #8 on debut on the Billboard's Pop Albums chart.
