‘In Through The Out Door’ got slammed by many when it got released 40 years ago… I can’t imagine why! Can anyone name a better album from 1979? Aside from the almighty “In the Evening”, epic “Carouselambra”, good-time “Fool in the Rain”, and bluesy “I’m Gonna Crawl”, there is this very touching ballad. “All My Love” is Robert Plant’s dedication to his 5-year-old son, Karac, who had tragically died 2 years earlier (on 26th of July, 1977). Watching this clip will bring a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye….
