i usually feel like singing drummers look sort of awkward or even dumb but man is levon one cool motherfucker

budo jeru, Sunday, 4 November 2018 21:59 (ten months ago) link

That version of "King Harvest" is amazing. The guitar solo is one of my favorites ever, by anyone.

JRN, Sunday, 4 November 2018 22:12 (ten months ago) link

So weird to see RR pre-Telecaster. Also, is he wearing finger-picks?

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 4 November 2018 22:35 (ten months ago) link

i also appreciate how much crisper the drums sound in this version

budo jeru, Sunday, 4 November 2018 22:54 (ten months ago) link

great recording, Robbie looks like such a chilled hipster

I thought Robbie was wearing shorts for a minute, there. Eech.

six months pass...

^Features Levon, RIck and Garth, along with a cavalcade of RIngo's All-Stars.

Seems like there are not one, not two but THREE drummers up there: Levon, Ringo and Jim Keltner.

I'll let you figure out for yourself who is the surprise guest vocalist/pianist taking one of the verses.

Careless Love Battery (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 13 May 2019 01:52 (four months ago) link

RIngo and Jim seem to do some fills along with Levon - it's almost like Antmusic.

When I saw that opening guitar playing I thought, huh, that person knows what they are doing. And ... of course it's Nils.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 13 May 2019 02:09 (four months ago) link

yup

Just rewatched video of him playing "Purple Rain" for the first time since it happened but was a little afraid to.

xxxpost, Robertson's misgivings were justified to an extent: no doubt some Johnny Reb headz heard "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" as tons of sobs for the Lost Cause. When I play it on my radio show, I'll follow it with Isbell's "White Man's World" and "Danko and Manuel."

Cool. Are you talking about something you read in Testimony?

Careless Love Battery (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 13 May 2019 03:01 (four months ago) link

No, a discussion upthread, but mis-remembered re Robertson's misgivings, sorry, should have re-read. Still, the proposed song sequence seems good, even though I don't have a radio show.

dow, Monday, 13 May 2019 03:11 (four months ago) link

actually went and looked for that radio show but all I could find was an on-air personality with your same last name.

Timely revive, as I discovered today that the vinyl copy of the s/t I got on eBay was delivered to someone else at the wrong address way the hell across town.

I'm usually put off by ensemble 'all star band' stuff, but damn you can't deny that above clip.

Sam Weller, Monday, 13 May 2019 07:29 (four months ago) link

Thought the revive would be for this:

The 75-year-old Robertson, who was inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame Thursday night (May 9) at Toronto's Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards, has an incredibly busy year, including finishing a new solo album, scoring the music for Scorsese's new film, The Irishman, remixing music for the 50th anniversary reissue of The Band album, and writing the follow-up memoir to 2016's Testimony.

uh-oh

the word dog doesn't bark (anagram), Monday, 13 May 2019 08:38 (four months ago) link

he might just be remixing outtakes?

Is there a good place to read about The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and if it is pro-Confederacy? Always just thought it was about how wars chew young people up into fodder regardless of the "cause", a Vietnam allegory, but as I've gotten older and learned what that war was actually about (I'm from the UK) I feel less comfortable about it.

Tiltin' My Lens Photography (stevie), Monday, 13 May 2019 09:07 (four months ago) link

This article pretty much covers it:

The whole of Music From Big Pink got remixed by Bob Clearmountain last year though, which doesn't augur well

xxp

thanks anagram - and oh yikes, that is not good news!

Not quite as must see as the last clip- no Garth for one thing- but from the same tour, and still Levon and Rick. Like what Nils and Joe Walsh are doing.
