iTunes Review

The Last Waltz has earned its rightful place as one of rock 'n' roll's most important films. The soundtrack album is equally blessed, with performances that have acquired legendary status. It started as a farewell to The Band, which was to play its final concert at Bill Graham's Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco on Thanksgiving 1976. The guest list turned the concert into one for the ages. The Band's early mentor Ronnie Hawkins chews up "Who Do You Love." Dr. John brings his New Orleans magic to "Such a Night." Muddy Waters proves that being an elder statesman doesn't mean losing a lick of vitality on "Mannish Boy." Van Morrison turns in a ferocious "Caravan" and a touching and dynamic "Tura Lura Lura." Neil Young hangs on for dear life with a vulnerable "Helpless." The Band, of course, charges forth with a strong "It Makes No Difference" and stellar versions of its classics "Up on Cripple Creek" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," with singer/drummer Levon Helm sounding like he's out to prove Robbie Robertson wrong in breaking up the group. Bob Dylan sends things over the top with a brutal electric version of "Baby, Let Me Follow You Down."

Customer Reviews

The Last Waltz

Best 70's rock movie I ever watched. The guests are unreal.

Excellent Album (wish iTunes had the Box Set)

Firstly, I love this album, and for that matter The Band. Warner Bros has published a Blu-ray of the concert "The Last Waltz," which I recently bought. I love watching it, and so I bought this so that I could hear the songs on my iPod. I highly recommend the movie version by the same name if you like this one.

Also there exists a Box Set of this concert that includes some jams that are not in this set. I wish iTunes would release that.

The Farewell Concert

Probably the greatest gathering of music artists during single concert. All of the guests perform great, but Van Morrison and Neil Young really raise the bar with Caravan and Helpless(both songs are superior to the studio recordings). Also, check out this version The Weight. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

For roughly half a decade, from 1968 through 1975, the Band was one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world, their music embraced by critics (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, the public) as seriously as the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their one-time employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. Although the Band retired from touring after The Last Waltz and disbanded several...
