The Band — The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
Inspired by Ted’s post of the same song, except that I like this version better. It’s from their famous last concert, The Last Waltz (DVD, Blu-ray, 2-CD set, 4-CD set… but unfortunately not available for download from Amazon MP3 or iTunes).
If you like classic rock, you need to see this concert. If you might like classic rock, this will make you like it. If your parents like classic rock, it’s a great gift.
What I really love about this is that it’s a bunch of musicians. Not pop stars, not marketing creations, and not “performers”. Just musicians with real talent and real soul. That’s too rare in today’s mainstream music.
