This concert dvd filmed at the famous Nashville's Historic Ryman Auditorium on September 17, 2008, contains some excellent "Roots Music", including some blues, a Carter Family Song (No Depression in Heaven), several songs written by Robbie Robertson Of "The Band" (in which Levon Helm was a member), plus some more traditional "rootsy" songs. The Levon Helm Band in this concert dvd is fairly large, and you get all kinds of musical instruments played, including horns. Levon plays the drums, and mandolin, and also sings lead vocals on most songs. Plus, you get terrific Guest Artists, including: Sam Bush, Sheryl Crow, John Haitt, Buddy Miller, George Receli and Billy Bob Thornton.
All the songs are great, but I really enjoyed their version of "The Weight", which has become a classic song, covered by many artists. It was written by Robbie Robertson of "The Band".
If you like "Rootsy" type music, then you'll really enjoy this one. Thanks!!!!
P.S. The legendary, Levon Helm, passed away after the filming/recording of this DVD. So, that makes this dvd a little more special.
