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.
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!
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.
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!!
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.

"Last Waltz" seemed somber, dark in mood...even some of the Band members were in shadows...and it seemed more a vanity project to promote Robertson. Read morePublished 8 months ago by D. P. Jestic

Yes! Buy this DVD. I was dumb and missed this show when it came to town, but at least it was recorded, and what a show it is. My 1 year old and I watch it all the time. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Leo Taylor
The music is incredible but the engineering is disgraceful. Most bootlegs sound better. It is a disgrace to Levon that this was released.Published 16 months ago by William L. Osburn
