Editorial Reviews

The Levon Helm Band is making more than music in Woodstock, NY nestled in the heart of the Catskill Mountains, they are orchestrating a musical carnival known as The Midnight Ramble. The idea is to recreate, inside Levon Helm Studios, the traveling shows (like F.S. WalcottOs Rabbit Foot Minstrel show) that played in the South where Levon grew up as a boy, embracing the merging musical traditions of the time; blues, gospel, country, rock and roll, bluegrass, rockabilly, soul and jazz. Levon Helm (The Band, R.C.O All-Stars) made a career on stage and screen as a singer, drummer, band leader, writer and actor. He has assembled some of the premiere musicians on the East Coast to take part in the carnival. The room is a unique studio, all wooden (no nails only wooden pegs holding the barnOs towering hemlock beams together) with locally quarried bluestone and the ambiance of a church hall. Guests include: Jonnie Johnson (Chuck Berry), Dr. John, Little Sammy Davis (Earl Hooker, Ike Turner), Jon Smith (The White Trash Horn Section, Edgar and Jonnie Winters), Jimmy Vivino (Max Weinberg Seven, Al Kooper), Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan), Mike Merritt (Max Weinberg Seven), Eric Lawrence, Steven Bernstein, Amy Helm, Glen Patscha, Fiona McBain, Byron Isaacs, Tony Leone, Sean Costello, Andrew Shober, Fred Scribner. The music is soulful and bluesy, layered with rich vocal accompaniment and slick musical arrangements, and grounded by the roots this music grew from. Volume one features the harmonica legend and blues singer Little Sammy Davis at the top of his game. Levon makes his first vocal debut in over ten years on Volume Two after successfully overcoming throat cancer, so it is a real treat for all of the fans who have missed that sweet southern voice. Digipak - OSP. Levon Helm. 2006.

We are blessed here in the northeast. Almost every Saturday night we can go to Levon Helm's house & hear some of the greatest live music around. That's right, Levon Helm's (you might remember he was in a lil group called The Band) house is open to the public for his Midnight Ramble. You never know who's gonna show up either. On this particular night, little known harmonica player Little Sammy Davis appeared at the Ramble. Sammy escaped from Mississippi when he was about 13 years old & never looked back, working for a time with Earl Hooker. He fell out of the music scene for a while, no doubt to make some $$$ and support his family & we are again blessed when he decided to make upstate New York his home. Well folks now you can enjoy Levon's Midnight Ramble w/ special guest Little Sammy Davis in the comfort of your own home. If ya ever get up here on a Saturday night drop on by & tell Lee Wilbur sent ya.

Levon Helm passed away in 2012. In the decade of his life that he fought throat cancer he performed some of the finest rock, jazz and southern folk imaginable with some of the greatest musicians alive. If you were a known musician, you too wanted to perform with Levon at The Ramble. Here is some of the finest music drawn from a great musician's life work.

i have all the midnight ramble sessions available...this is my least favorite simply because it has none of levon helms singing on it at all..but i do not think he had a voice at that time...dealing with the throat cancer...but the other volumes 2 & 3 do have him and his daughter Amy singing on them and they are awesome
