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.

I would add that the drummer, Levon Helm, was from Arkansas."Virgil Caine is my name and I served on the Danville train"

Robertson was interviewed recently on CBC's Q. Entertaining.

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.

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.

Good heads-up Jim. Seen that several times and love it. Ah the early 70s - The Band, CCR, The Eagles...that was music!

Interesting side note, I used to watch a guitar player perform in late 60's in Washington, DC suburbs, as a U of Md college student. Roy Buchanan, could play his guitar with one hand while drinking a beer.... he made it sing for him. In 1958, Buchanan made his recording debut with Dale Hawkins, including playing the solo on "My Babe" for Chicago's Chess Records. Two years later, during a tour through Toronto, Buchanan left Dale Hawkins to play for his cousin Ronnie Hawkins and tutor Ronnie's guitar player, Robbie Robertson. Buchanan plays bass on the Ronnie Hawkins's single "Who Do You Love?"[citation needed]. Buchanan soon returned to the U.S. and Ronnie Hawkins' group later gained fame as The Band. The early 60s found Buchanan performing numerous gigs as a sideman with multiple rock bands, and cutting a number of sessions as guitarist with musicians such as Freddy Cannon and Merle Kilgore. Enjoy

I too went to UMCP and saw Buchanan a bunch of times at "My Mother's Place" at 18th & M Sts. Usually went on Sunday nights since beers were 25 cents and mixed drinks were 50 cents. Roy was truly under appreciated.

Your memory is better than mine, I could not remember the name of that club, must have been too many of those $.25 beers.

I highly reccomend Robbie Robertson's autobiography Testimony. I've read many rock books and this is right up there with the very best of them.

This Wheel's on Fire--Levon Helm's autobiography, and title of song written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko, popularized by Brian Auger-Julie Driscoll & Trinity (psychedelic, man!).

Ain't In It for My Health, A Film About Levon Helm--currently playing on Netflix. Not a happy movie.

Uh-oh, this is my kind of thread!

Great flix. Also, check out "Twenty Feet from Stardom" and even better, "Muscle Shoals" on Netflix. Duane Allman as a kid (among many others).
