B ig Log was a big hit and remains Plant’s highest-charting single. It’s great stuff, moody and melting in your mind like a dream, Robert’s breathy delivery suggesting Bryan Ferry’s mystical, motorcycle-ridin’ twin. The flip side is the nonalbum “Far Post,” not nearly as polished as “Big Log” but fun in an unfinished sort of way. It appears to date from the Pictures At Eleven sessions.
