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 Saluting Levon: The Big-Time Ramble February 19, 2013
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 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 Love For Levon... great party! March 18, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I attended the show in October, and saw the AXS broadcast. Some performances were better than others (standouts were My Morning Jacket, Gregg Allman/Warren Haynes, Grace Potter, and ANYTHING Garth Hudson played on), but the whole point was to celebrate the life of a universally admired musician and to raise money to save his home and studio. The fact that all of these musicians took time out of their busy lives to perform at this concert shows the depth of their admiration for Mr. Helm. Live music isn't perfect... it isn't supposed to be. For those of us who were there, this will be a great souvenir of a memorable night. For those who weren't... well, judge for yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, for a concert of this type April 17, 2013
These types of tribute concerts are always a mixed bag, as you get a wide selection of artists from all over the musical spectrum that don't necessarily mesh together in a night's program, playing with a backing band that they haven't gotten to rehearse much with. That being said, the organizers did a better job than most in putting together people and songs that made some kind of sense in terms of providing a tribute to Levon (a huge musical personality, and wonderful singer and drummer but not really a songwriter). That many of the songs were by Robbie Robertson, who Levon feuded with famously right to the end, is ironic. Robertson, as you might expect, was not in attendance, but Garth Hudson (looking quite elderly and frail, but still tearing it up on keyboards and accordion) was. And where was Dylan (whose songs were also featured during the concert)? Seems pretty disrespectful that he wasn't there.

The show gets off to a shaky start with Warren Haynes doing a tentative version of "The Shape I'm In," but then things pick up. Highpoints include Mavis Staples, energizing the band and crowd (albiet with a gospel song), John Prine giving his all on "When I Paint My Masterpiece" while looking in shockingly-ill health and not having a lot of voice left, Grace Potter playing some subtle, soulful Hammond B-3 and doing an emotional version of "I Shall be Released" (although watching her drummer's stage demeanor was really off-putting), and Marc Cohn surprising me, at least, with a great song he wrote about Levon back in '06.

I felt bad for Joan Osborne, who always does a sterling job at these things, being paired with David Bromberg for a vocal duet on "Don't Do It.

Marvelous concert and the mix makes it sound like it was recorded in Levon's living room.
I'll confess: I'd overlooked a lot of these musicians. This recording made me a fan.
