Biography

Levon Helm was in the right place at the right time. He saw the birth of rock and roll and though he’s too much of a gentleman to say it, his role in helping to keep that rebellious child healthy is more than just instrumental.

On May 26, 1940, Mark Lavon Helm was the second of four children born to Nell and Diamond Helm in Elaine, Arkansas. Diamond was a cotton farmer who ... Read more in Amazon's Levon Helm Store

Editorial Reviews

On September 17, 2008, the legendary Levon Helm took his beloved Midnight Ramble on the road to one of America’s treasured venues, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. Accompanied by such luminaries as Buddy Miller, John Hiatt, Sheryl Crow, George Receli, Sam Bush and Billy Bob Thornton, the Levon Helm Band created an unforgettable night of stage magic.

Yeah. I have most of these songs on other albums. True, I've heard most of these songs before. But the quality of band that Levon has behind him makes this album a must have and a must-hear. I had the pleasure of seeing Levon in Philly in 2009. Levon Helm is a national treasure. His band is amazing. Listen to "Deep Elem Blues" and tell me I'm wrong. You need this album.

Format: Audio CD
Who was your favourite member of the Band? It is a question that requires a large bottle of red wine and a number of argumentative souls to fiercely debate the merits of what remains one of the best things to come of American music ever. You will probably never reach a consensus not least because the tragedies of the deaths of the both Richard Manual and Rick Danko when both still had much more music to give. Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson are still active musicians and then you have this reviewers own favourite, the force of nature that is Levon Helm. In 2007 his album "Dirt Farmer" was his first solo album after 25 years and it was truly worth the wait being a veritable goldmine of organic country, blues and folk. As a slice of Americana roots music infused with southern pastoralism by one of its greatest living exponents it was a true blessing made all the more special because of Helm's battle against throat cancer and the destruction of his recording studio in a fire. Helm is clearly made of strong stuff and his journey from a cotton farm in Arkansas, a member of the Hawks, one of Bob Dylan's great sidekicks and a glorious career in The Band is one of rock music's most remarkable tales. The fact that this story continues should merit a sly acknowledgement upward should anyone reading this review be attending any religious establishments today!

Helm is now 71 and this live album recorded at the legendary Nashville's Ryman auditorium is a rare treat. Certainly his voice is not as strong as it once was but this does not detract from a brilliant performance where he adapts his vocals to the songs and is backed by a set of musicians who can take any song by the scruff of the neck and make it their own.

This is a great live CD release by the legendary musician Levon Helm, titled 'Ramble At Ryman Live'. The CD (15 live tracks) were recorded in September 2008 at historic Nashville's Ryman auditorium. There is however some overlap with Merlefest CD tracks released in 2008 but most of the tracks have been overhauled. Levon Helm plays great music on this CD release (great bluesy-rock sound, vocals & harmonies). The CD opens with a track "Ophelia" : great orchestral base track sound & vocals). Other great tracks include "Back To Memphis" (saxophone/piano combination), "Baby Scratch My Back", "No Depression In Heaven" (countryish track), "Deep Elem Blues" (a great bluesy ballad & melody), "Rag Mama Rag" (up-tempo bluesy track, great saxophone & vocals reminiscent of Bob Dylan's on this track), "Time Out For The Blues" (great guitar), "The Shape I'm In" (up-tempo track, great saxophone & beautiful husky/croaggy voice of Levon Helm) & "Chest Fever" (great lead guitar overdrive/syncopation). Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Evangeline" (up-tempo track, great banjo/spanish guitar, wonderful melody & vocals), "Wide River To Cross" (a ballad with a beautiful violin/guitar combination & vocals), "Anna Lee" (wonderful violin, melody & harmonies), "A Train Robbery" (a slow bluesy track, great guitar chords, melody & vocals) & "The Weight" (wonderful saxophone/piano combination & melody). Okay track is "Famine Mae". On overall, this is a great live CD by Levon Helm, recorded in 2008, a highly recommended CD listening.

So many times I have gotten excited by an upcoming performance or album only to be let down. Not here. This album starts great with Ophelia and builds from there. Levon Helm brings up his guests and friends to give his throat (recovered from cancer) a break and each one of these guests add something special to the album. From Samie Davis, to Sheryl Crow to John Hiatt each one adds a personal touch which brings the album together in a fun, well paced, performance that is as close to magic on stage as I have heard. Besides, how can you not LOVE an album that has a TUBA solo?!

Without going into some of the nit-picking on some of the reviews here, I'd just like to say this is a superb album period! If you want to show up at work with a smile on your face, just pop the cd into your car and turn up the volume. The back-up band is just outta-sight and it sounds like everyone on this project is just having the time of their lives making great music! The song, Anna Lee just rips your heart out and everything else swings to the rafters. Great Listening!

I've followed Levon Helm since 1968's 'Music from Big Pink.' I've also seen him live at least eight times including six times with The Band. That said, I feel the Ramble at The Ryman catches his personal magic on a level of his 1974 tour with Bob Dylan.
Sure there are some strained moments when Levon's voice sounds strained and he looks as if he is in pain. However, this show builds steam until it reaches the boiling points of Rag Mama Rag and The Shape I'm in.
This is one fine addition to The Last Waltz. I'm sure glad Levon and company 'gave it up' and poured out their hearts and souls for us one more time.
We don't need to sit and brag, do we.
