Tunes for a Tuesday...The Band live at The Last Waltz Concert

There have been lots of documentaries made about great music but one of the top of my list is The Last Waltz, directed by Martin Scorsese. The film is the last concert of The Band in 1976 at The Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as the last performance of the group's career and saw them joined by dozens of musicians from Joni Mitchell to Neil Young and Bob Dylan in addition to a dozen other artists. The Winterland Ballroom the venue that was used for shows that were to large to fit into the famed Fillmore was host to a number of epic concerts recorded for live albums and for sure this was just one of those epic shows. So many great performances...
