phenominal show for a phenominal artist,
This review is from: Love For Levon (2xBlu-Ray + 2xCD) (Blu-ray)
I'm quite baffled by some negative reviews posted here. I sat ten rows up from stage left and could see all the artists as they prepared to take the stage. Lots of comraderie. I saw the Band perform at Watkins Glen,Roosevelt Stadium and most of the other venues in the area. Saw em twice with Dylan and was arrested at one of their shows. I thought this was a fitting tribute to a great artist. There were performers from The Allman Bros.,Pink Floyd,The Eagles,Govt Mule, The Wallflowers and so much more. The crowd was so into this show as were the artists. I'd never heard of Grace Potter before but her take on "I Shall Be Released" was a revelation. Joe Walsh roamed the stage like a wildman.I saw Joe at the Count Basie two yrs back and Levon sat in on drums for "Rocky Mountain Way". I've seen 100's of concerts over the last 40+ yrs and many had sound issues for the first few tunes.Here ya had artist after artist plugging in and out of the sound system. JohnPrine was great. He has battled cancer also. They will remaster the sound but the visuals can't be beat. Order this...you won't be sorry as long as you keep in mind this was a short notice show performed by artists that wanted to be there for the Love of Levon...as was the vast majority of the packed house. It was Electric.
