Product Description

Amazon.ca

Even taking into account inflation, it's ironic in this era of $250 concert tickets that critics harped when the Band charged $25 for their legendary November 1976 farewell show at San Francisco's Winterland. That price not only included Thanksgiving dinner, but also numerous guest superstars who'd influenced, worked with, and/or shared the Canadian roots of Robbie Robertson and crew. What transpired was a grand celebration of North American musical forms. There are numerous definitive performances here--from Van Morrison's goose-bump-inducing "Caravan" and solo rendition of the beautiful Irish standard "Tura Lura Lural" (Celtic music inspired those Appalachians in the first place) to Bob Dylan and "the Hawks" delivering a pop-metallic "Baby, Let Me Follow You Down," first captured on the Royal Albert Hall Concert tapes. But because this new fleshed-out version--produced and compiled by Robertson--includes surprises (late blues legend Muddy Waters's endearing take on Louis Jordan's "Caledonia"; current blues legend Dylan's "Hazel"), treasures ("This Wheels on Fire," Neil Young's "Four Strong Winds"), and two jam sessions that just don't add much, the new box set simply matches and enhances--but doesn't top--the original three-LP version of this wonderful slice of rock & roll history. --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars The Band's 2nd best live album May 6 2009
By PGB
Format:Audio CD
Just a quick word to the previous reviewer- "Leon Helms" (it's Levon Helm) need not rest yet, as he's very much alive, and still producing great music! She may have meant either the late Richard Manuel or Rick Danko, both of whom are dead, unfortunately - they were two of the three brilliant lead singing voices of the Band. I saw them in Montreal in 1969 or 70, just after the release of the second album ("The Band" - the brown one), and they were the best band, live, I've ever seen.

This album was their second best live album (after "Rock of Ages" from 1972), and of course includes "bonus" performances of several friends. This 2-CD version is probably the better choice (over the 4-disc box) for all but the most dedicated (and richest!) collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Important concert in rock history Dec 5 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
The Band's The Last Waltz was likely the single most important concert music has ever had. Vinyl is the truest way to capture that feeling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe The Fan(atic)s Are Still Stoned! Nov. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I expect to take some arrows from the Band fanatics, who seem to pretty much deify this record, but please just give me a listen.
First of all, I think The Band was positively one of the great bands of their era. They put out some classic studio albums (to digress, at one time I would have put MUSIC FROM BIG PINK at the top of that list, but recent listens to the remasters forces me to revise my LP days opinion that THE BAND did not compare well with their first album; I now concede that THE BAND was the superior album, and I sometimes wonder how I did not notice that songs like ROCKING CHAIR and UNFAITHFUL SERVANT represented some of the finest music of the day (since I did not get stoned, I cannot blame it on that)! They even put out one of the top five live albums of all time. It just was not called THE LAST WALTZ. In my mind THE LAST WALTZ typifies the worst excesses of the period when it was created and the coming complete commercialization of rock, that has continued and run rampant to this day. The Band had had it when they decided to go out with a bang with this massive undertaking--they had been on the road too long, they had tired of each other (there was much bile among the members, which continues among those still living), and they had lost all spontaneity and real emotion in their music. And guess what? It shows! The whole thing (check out the DVD for further evidence) is tired, ponderous and just not very conducive to repeat listenings. It feels like a museum piece, not rock and roll.
Oh, I did say THE BAND put out one of the great live albums of all time, didn't I? Yes, and it was called ROCK OF AGES, and it happens to blow the socks off this tired mess.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Waltz Didn't Mean The Dance Was Over May 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
"There's a flood out in California, and up North it's freezin' cold! And this a-livin' off the road is gettin' purty old!", drummer Levon Helm twangs as The Band gives a fiery performance of 'Up On Cripple Creek,' one of their many signature songs. And indeed, the actual meaning of "The Last Waltz" was that The Band (or more specifically, songwriter/guitarist Robbie Robertson) were saying goodbye to the touring life, and had the intent of being reborn as a studio unit (think Steely Dan). But that didn't exactly go as planned, and the odds-and-ends album "Islands" was the only product of this idea (but even that album was released mostly as a contract-filler for Capitol Records). And though Band members were still talking about a new album as late as 1979, Robbie Robertson was obviously now focused on his work in terms of films, and the legendary five-man version of The Band was no more. And though some critics are cynical as to why a group would give up touring when touring is what a rock group does for a living, Robertson obviously had good reason to say goodbye to the road; it was obviously taking its toll on the personal lives of the Band members, most notably pianist and one of three lead vocalists Richard Manuel. Robertson said in 1987 "To see people teetering on the brink constantly...Richard scared us to death. We scared ourselves to death." (It's been argued that the touring hassles that the reunited Band went through in the 80s is what caused Manuel's suicide, but that's too personal to get into.)
It's ironic that Helm could deliver such a powerful vocal performance, belting out the lines that began this review, but the whole time, he was certainly not happy to be a part of this "celebration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great package May 10 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you loved the Martin Scorsese film and still want more, this will feed the need. Fifty-four tracks make for an exhaustive approach to the concert CD. In addition, the packaging provides a sense of heft - 80-page book, David Fricke's liner notes, Robbie Robertson's foreword, and lots of photos - that makes you feel that it is way better than a digital download!
