Album Review

This album is a mixture of live material from 1996 and 1997 and tracks recorded at Levon Helm's home studio.

Highlights include live versions of Bob Dylan's "Don't Ya Tell Henry," "Milk Cow Boogie," and the Band staple "Rag Mama Rag." These tracks capture one of the finest bar bands on the planet. All establishments should be so fortunate.
