Editorial Reviews

Dozens of luminaries from rock, soul and country gathered at the Meadowlands Arena on October 3, 2012, for an incredible tribute to Levon Helm, The Band s late drummer/singer/mandolin player (who passed away in early 2012). The concert, directed by bassist Don Was, was an opportunity to say a final farewell and, in the process, raise money for the ongoing Midnight Ramble series of concerts still held at The Barn, Helm s famous home-studio in Woodstock, New York. One at a time or, sometimes, in pairs, rock-royalty took turns in the spotlight over the course of the evening, singing songs associated with Levon Helm and The Band including "Up On Crippled Creek," "The Shape I m In," "Life is a Carnival," "Ophelia," "The Weight," "Rag Mamma Rag," "I Ain t Got No Home," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."

5.0 out of 5 stars Love For Levon February 4, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Yeah! I have been waiting for this release since the night of the concert. I flew from Atlanta to Newark just to see this show, and flew back the next morning. I have been going to concerts since the 60's, and this one may have been my all time favorite. What a show! What a line up, and what a play list. I couldn't wipe the grin off my face for days, thinking back on the show. My two favorite moments were Grace Potter singing "I Shall Be Released" and Roger Waters talking about the hat that Levon gave him when they were doing "The Wall" in Berlin. The only two disappointing parts of the show were Patty Griffin not showing up as announced, and the fact that they didn't play all night long!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saluting Levon: The Big-Time Ramble February 19, 2013
Format:DVD
There are musicians that are loved by the public and there are musicians who are loved by other musicians. The late Levon Helm was both. The proof can be found on the 2DVD (or Blu-Ray), 2CD release of the October all-star "Love for Levon" concert, held in New Jersey in October 2012. The concert features a "Who's Who" of rock, pop, soul, blues, and gospel stars performing songs associated with Helm (and The Band) in interesting combinations and without pretense. Hell, even Roger Waters of the progressive rock giant Pink Floyd is on board. It is an engrossing show with numerous high points. I'm a huge Allen Toussaint fan and he perfectly nails "Life is a Carnival." My Morning Jacket is a great fit for a rousing "Ophelia." "The Shape I'm In" gets a deep southern make-over from Warren Haynes. And the always entertaining John Hiatt joyously romps through "Rag Mama Rag." These songs, many written by Robbie Robertson of The Band, have become American standards and this great show demonstrates how vital they are today to musicians from all genres. Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Band, led by master guitarist Larry Campbell sounds great throughout the show. Some of the performances are "ragged but right" at times, evoking the spontaneous spirit of Levon himself. It is great to see The Band's Garth Hudson wail on the organ in "Chest Fever" for his missing bandmate. This is a labor of love, rooted in the songs and spirit of Levon Helm. Highly recommended for fans of "real" American music.

5.0 out of 5 stars phenominal show for a phenominal artist February 18, 2013
By buzzard
Format:Blu-ray
I'm quite baffled by some negative reviews posted here. I sat ten rows up from stage left and could see all the artists as they prepared to take the stage. Lots of comraderie. I saw the Band perform at Watkins Glen,Roosevelt Stadium and most of the other venues in the area. Saw em twice with Dylan and was arrested at one of their shows. I thought this was a fitting tribute to a great artist. There were performers from The Allman Bros.,Pink Floyd,The Eagles,Govt Mule, The Wallflowers and so much more. The crowd was so into this show as were the artists. I'd never heard of Grace Potter before but her take on "I Shall Be Released" was a revelation. Joe Walsh roamed the stage like a wildman.I saw Joe at the Count Basie two yrs back and Levon sat in on drums for "Rocky Mountain Way". I've seen 100's of concerts over the last 40+ yrs and many had sound issues for the first few tunes.Here ya had artist after artist plugging in and out of the sound system. JohnPrine was great. He has battled cancer also. They will remaster the sound but the visuals can't be beat. Order this...you won't be sorry as long as you keep in mind this was a short notice show performed by artists that wanted to be there for the Love of Levon...as was the vast majority of the packed house. It was Electric.
