The Last Waltz...tonite at 8 pm

A documentary about the Canadian group called "The Band" who collaborated with Bob Dylan as a studio band and even appeared at Woodstock. Tonite at 8 pm est, check your local listings. They produced several albums on their own.
BTW there is another studio band called "The Funk Bros" the Motown Sound who sold more records than Beatles,Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, combined. They were the band for Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Supremes, Stevie Wonder, 4 Tops et al.
Enjoy

"Standing in the Shadows of Motown" is so good that I bought four copies of the DVD and could only find one copy of the CD so snatched that up too. Joan Osborne's cover of, "What Becomes of the Broken-hearted" with the band was so good she toured with these guys after the filming. See it if you enjoy the classics. In this instance, Jim is not only "not in doubt" but rather spot on."

Still remember seeing The Band live. Seems like a lifetime ago, Robbie Robertson playing away on his double necked Gibson. IMHO the Band was one of the best exports Canada ever produced.

Yep, hat tip to Arkansas. Whenever "The night they drove old dixie down" comes on XM, I crank it.

Emmylou doing "Evangeline" and the Staples doing "The Weight" with The Band. Best concert film ever.

We got to see Joan live at the Big Top Chautauqua - she is amazing

The Last Waltz is one of the best documentary music concerts ever. The Band's music style was described often as Americana, which seems quite accurate to me. My favourite segments in the show were when Joni Mitchell and Neil Young joined them. They really added some Canadiana to the proceedings!

Here they are doing Acadian Driftwood.
