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."

.....TALENT is TALENT and speaks for itself. ALL of this show is top notch but to me the following are ABOVE AVERAGE:
-Chest Fever w/ Garth doing Bach-esque intro, best ever IMO.
-Eric Church, both songs but mainly James Gang song.
-Tears of Rage, Ray Lamontagne is a living legend...people complain Bob Dylan wasnt there, his son was and i'd rather see RAY !
-Grace Potter, this is the best performance i have ever seen her do and the best HAMMOND B3 organ grind ever ! IMO this is the best song-performance of all on here.
-Wheels on Fire by Larry Campbell is smokin hot.
What i also like is its in HD and contemporary renditions.
I would recommend this CD/DVD to new and old Levon fans alike. You also get a lot for your money with this purchase. Personal highlights of the show for me were the performances by Garth Hudson, Lucinda Williams, Grace Potter, Roger Waters, the guest drummers, Joe Walsh with Robert Randolph, the Midnight Ramble Band and every time Larry Campbell was on the fiddle. The whole experience was a wonderful tribute/fund raiser in memory of an amazing man with an incredible lineup of musicians.
