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."
I'm averaging out my review. Great concert. Disc 1 is worth it even if the sound could be better. But, Disc 2 will not play in 4 players tried so far. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Richard Kovalcik

Great collection of Americana music. I really enjoy the DVDs and the CDs. Too bad we don't have more people like Levon Helm.Published 7 months ago by Donald L. Armstrong
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.
