The Last Waltz
« on: December 15, 2004, 01:08:11 PM »

The classic concert documentary The Last Waltz with the Band, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton & Neil Young is one of the most overrated rock documentaries of all time in part because Martin Scorcese directed it which is is why it's overpraised even though it has some great live performances by the Band playing Up On Cripple Creek, Eric Clapton playing Further Up On The Road & Bob Dylan playing Baby Let Me Follow You Down but Let It Be, Gimme Shelter, Woodstock & The Song Remains The Same are a whole lot better!

I don't like the emmylou harris bit, and sometimes i fast forward through Coyote, even though its a good song. 

More Ringo is needed too!

Lol, 'Coyote' is probably my favorite Joni Mitchell tune ever. I like Emmylou too. Different tastes are wonderful.

Dylan ruins it?? No way! I love his songs. He sounds pretty good too! But to each his own I guess! I always FF through Joni Mitchell, I like her, but not that song and FORGET Neil Diamond! Eww. The best parts though are when it's just the guys doing their own stuff. I LOVE Levon Helm's voice and cannot stop listening to The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down!! I taped it obviously. I had never seen the entire concert before! This is how stupid I was, I thought it was Robbie Robertson singing all these years!! DUH! Why is it that I know him but not the other guys? Did he do something in the 80's that was popular or something? ;D Sorry for the rambling!

Robbie RObertson was the most well known member, as he wrote all the tunes and played lead guitar.  However the singing was done by Helm, Rick Danko, and Jerry manuel.  I hate nearly all of Neil DIamonds songs, but I thought the one he did here was ok.  My favorite Levon Helm singing is done on Dylans song When I Paint My Masterpiece.  Terrific.  I notice that Cingular has started using their most famous song "The Weight" in one of their ads, and therefore I've been hearing it among friends recently.  They have no idea who sings it, but its always interesting to see songs be resurrected by commercials.  The Stones with you Cant Always get What You want on the Coke ads, and the Who with their CSI trilogy, all experience similar things.  Anyway I love the Band, great tunes.

Your ramblings always make such good sense though! Anyway, I guess that's how I knew of Robbie Robertson. He's the main guy. I had no idea who the rest were. Levon Helm is an actor too I think! Well, that's what my friend told me. Wonder what he was in??

I love Jerry Manuel's voice.  His most notable vocals are The Shape I'm In and Tears of Rage.  One of my favorite parts of the band is their ability to blend their three singers, my favorite instance being the one verse sung by Rick Danko in The Weigh, the verse about Jack my dog.  As for Levon Helm's acting.he has appeared in such projects as Coal Miner's Daughter, The Best Revenge, The Right Stuff, The Dollmaker (TV film), and even an episode of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.

Okay, he has not aged well at all. He looks 100. Maybe it's the lack of beard though. I wonder how his voice sounds. I remeber him in Coal Miners Daughter now! He was the father. I just bought a cd of The Band from Amazon. I can't wait to hear it. I only know the three songs they play on the radio! And all of them are sung primarily by Levon. Danko sounds completely different on the recorded version of the Weight then when he does it on the concert. I can't believe the other guy killed himselft. That's SAD!!

Robbie looks pretty good for his age. I think.

I also bought the DVD of the Last Waltz. It's supposed to have extras. I wonder what though.
