My Lost Treasure: The Band
Happy almost Thanksgiving! I hope you're warm and cozy, and getting ready to enjoy a meal with family and friends. I can't help but to think of The Band's Last Waltz when Thanksgiving rolls around. It was recorded on Thanksgiving Day in 1976.
It was The Band's final performance. Or at least The Band as we knew them back then. They were joined by a slew of great musicians including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, and a whole lot more. It's an iconic album and movie, and if you have never checked it out, you absolutely must. It's a music lovers dream come true. A real life fantasy concert.
The song I chose for this week's lost treasure is one of my favorite songs by The Band, and this version is especially sweet. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving, and thanks for listening. Talk to you Monday.
