....and watch this DVD. Blues, Country, Rock and Roll - Whatever - This video is toe tapping fun. I hesitated to buy this DVD, because I was not familiar with all the songs and musicians, but after viewing it, my hesitation was unfounded. Great music by all.

I was impressed with the quality of the transfer, both visual and audio. I listened to both 5.1 and stereo, but found my best option was to pick the 5.1 option on the DVD, and the 7.1 stereo option on my amp. This way, I still had the nice surround sound and good bass, but the highs from my back four speakers also filled the room. - A win win for me.

A stand out on the bass drum is during the song A Train Robbery - Your dog will run and hide and the neighbors may call to complain. The horn section, which I am usually not a fan of, was great too. The video runs just under 75 minutes and leaves you wanting more. Rag Mama Rag......

Overall - A keeper for multiple viewings. NOTE: Amazon indicates a release of the DVD in May, 2011, however the DVD I received has a 2009 date on the package and the same 2009 date in the credits.

There is a version of this concert which is currently being shown on PBS TV stations- it is highly edited, and intended to be a fund-raiser, joining the ghost of Roy Orbison. If you want the whole concert, buy this!

The leader of the band is Larry Campbell, who doesn't get nearly enough credit or recognition for his excellent performances on guitar and fiddle. A heck of a guy!

This concert dvd filmed at the famous Nashville's Historic Ryman Auditorium on September 17, 2008, contains some excellent "Roots Music", including some blues, a Carter Family Song (No Depression in Heaven), several songs written by Robbie Robertson Of "The Band" (in which Levon Helm was a member), plus some more traditional "rootsy" songs. The Levon Helm Band in this concert dvd is fairly large, and you get all kinds of musical instruments played, including horns. Levon plays the drums, and mandolin, and also sings lead vocals on most songs. Plus, you get terrific Guest Artists, including: Sam Bush, Sheryl Crow, John Haitt, Buddy Miller, George Receli and Billy Bob Thornton.

All the songs are great, but I really enjoyed their version of "The Weight", which has become a classic song, covered by many artists. It was written by Robbie Robertson of "The Band".

If you like "Rootsy" type music, then you'll really enjoy this one. Thanks!!!!

P.S. The legendary, Levon Helm, passed away after the filming/recording of this DVD. So, that makes this dvd a little more special.

This is the most recent (recorded n 2009, released in 2010) of the Americana-themed Grammy-winning Levon Helm recordings after his first recovery from throat cancer and before it reared it's ugly head the second time. Musically directed and produced by Larry Campbell who plays guitar and fiddle, it incluses incomparable keyboardist Brian Mitchell, and outstanding horn section, stand-up bassis Paul Ossola, percussionists George Recelli and Tony Leone, along with Larry's wife Teresa Williams (guitar and vocals) in harmony along with Amy Helm. Guest musicians include Cheryl Crow, Sam Bush (master mandolinist), Buddy Miller, and songwriter John Hiatt. if you loved how The Band made music come together as grater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts, you will truly come to adore this DVD!! And, just to sweeten the pot, 5 of the tracks are old Band songs brought to new life with this cadre of 15 outstanding musicians along with the other traditional and cover americana songs and Levon's real-thing voice. It really doesn't get any better than this!

Funny story, I was staying at a cabin and there was a cd in the stereo. Levon Helm, whom I started to enjoy way later than most folks. Just saw him at the 50th PFF and loved it. Well this cd reminded me of that performance. When I tried to find out the name of the cd, I learned it was a DVD and that explained a lot :) Bought it that day and love it!

Been trying to get a legal copy for almost three years. Happened to see the DVD was available a few days ago when I was scanning Amazon music.
Just watched the whole DVD and it is terrific! Feels good to be able to watch and listen to all this wonderful talent. I also saved three dollars off the pre-order price!
Going to order a few for Christmas gifts, and one spare for myself.......just in case I have an OOPS!!

Great music by a great musician with an awesome band in a beautiful auditorium.
If you are a fan of Levon (Lavon) you will enjoy this concert video and should own it. The musicianship is outstanding and it just feels real good.

We thoroughly enjoyed this DVD. We may go back & also order the CD to have in addition to the DVD. It's quite a story & quite a life that was led by Levon & the Band. Enjoy!
