I’ve already posted a song from The Band (see here – post #7 of SPD), but I’m currently obsessed with this album after having just watched this documentary about them. This is their second album and I really recommend listening to the full thing from start to finish. Here’s a clip of them performing this song at their final concert with the full 5-member band (Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, and Rick Danko), which was filmed by Martin Scorsese and made into a film called The Last Waltz – also recommended.
