Sitting here watching The Last Waltz on VH1, remembering how cool this show is.

I love Joni Mitchell's voice.

I think it's Dylan, who breaks a guitar string, and robertson takes off when he see's that he needs to fix it.

either Dyaln or Clatpon.

i always crack up a Richard Manuals comment "i just try to break even"

when asked about women on the road...

It was Clapton and his strap falling off, but you're right, the song/solo never suffered in the least.

Just caught a glimpse of some of it, but it was the part with Pop Staples and his baby girls. Pop Staples has a tone and voice that brought a sweet soulful tone to that mix of fellows.

Take a load off... there was plenty of story in that song.

I was lucky enough to be there. Only time I've ever seen a Beatle live.

Reminiscing about my first concert. My dad was in law school at Ole Miss. Bob Dylan and the Band were playing at the coliseum in Memphis and he got tickets and took the whole family. We were literally sitting in the very tippy top back row of the coliseum. I sewanee, I can still see those fellows down there in that spotlight through a smoky haze and my soul thumping....YOU GO YOUR WAY I'LL GO MINE!!!

The food was as good as turkey dinner for 6000 could be. Nice pre-show dancing to an orchestra. Not all night but it ran plenty late. Winterland never looked so good.

I always Loved The Last Waltz.... I had been into The Band for years but when this movie came out I had a renewed interest in Bob Dylan at that time...
But no one captured me more than Rick Danko's ..... It makes No Difference... heart ripping and I was feeling 'it bad' myself at that time....
I always watch when I know it's on.... the performances were great by everyone ...

I for one am most amused with the "contradiction" presented by Barney Hoskins' "Across the Great Divide: The Band and America". In one section of the book, the members of the band were very upset that Ronnie Hawkins did an interview with Rolling Stone in 1970 or so about the boys in which he described the various sexual escapades on the road in the early years, and even managed to describe the physical assets of one or another band "member", but then during their own interviews with Scorsese during the Last Waltz they do seem to get jolly about the same thing. One is very very amused to hear Robertson describe the initial offer to join the Hawk on the road: "You won't get paid a lot of money but you will get more p***** than Frank Sinatra"

I really like the show and all the performances, Dr. John's
"Such A Night" blows me away. But... the big jam at the
end loses me. Too many cooks in the kitchen, I guess. They
never really seem to establish the groove, tho Neil Young is
trying. If ya notice, EC finally sorta gives up on it and retreats,
I think he couldn't hear any space in which to play. It just
seems disjointed, the danger of impromptu jams, I reckon.

The first time I saw The Last Waltz was when it was originally released . I was only a kid and didn't know a lot about The Band's music ; but I was already a big Neil Young fan , and he was my main reason for wanting to see the film.
Over the years I've grown to really love The Band ( my username is one of my favorite Band songs).
My favorite scenes in The Last Waltz have remained the same since the 1st time I saw it: It Makes No Difference & The Weight w/The Staple Singers.

rented 'roger waters: the wall' the other night which featured garth on accordion, and rick and levon as backup singers. worth watching if you're a band fan.

has anyone around here been to a levon helm 'midnight ramble' near woodstock? (levonhelm.com). hope to check it out this summer.

Loved the TLW and was fortunate to see the Band at a small theater in Pittsburgh a few weeks prior to TLW. Those guys rocked. Had 3rd row seats and bought the tickets the day before the show. Thanks for bringing back some nice memories.
