Yes, you read that headline correctly. The full nearly four hour performance of the 1976 Thanksgiving night concert by The Band has made it’s way to the public. It includes, previously unreleased tunes by The Band such as “WS Wolcott Medicince Show,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “Arcadian Driftwood,” “Rag Mama Rag,” and also “The Weight” which in the film was represented only by the live in studio version. No overdubs here either.

Songs by some of the guest stars include “Hazel” by Bob Dylan, “Four Strong Winds” by Joni Mitchell and Neil Young and “Coyote” also by Joni.

“Don’t Do It”, which opens the performance part of the movie is also shown in its rightful place as the ending number.

Now I wonder if you can see the little white thing that was digitally removed from Neil Young’s nose. I’ll have to look for it.Please-visit-and-LIKE-our-facebook-page

    I prefer to listen to it this way actually without the overdubs. More organic and responsive. It was already a great concert but to me this is even better. The little inflections and “mistakes” that were overdubbed….take out some of the character to me. The Band is one of the greatest of all time!

    I was lucky enough to be theBAND’s road manager in 1975-1976 …..the LAST WALTZ was one of the best concerts of all time…..it is now forever in our history….I am very proud to have been a part.
