Album Review

Reviewed 2014-08-07
For many years before he passed, Levon held rambles, or ‘concerts’, at his barn in Woodstock. Here are some choice performances w/ an all-star cast, including Larry Campbell, Jimmy Vivino, Amy Helm, Teresa Williams, Little Sammy Davis, Chris Robinson, Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint. R’n’R, country, blues, soul vibes. Levon was drummer for The Band, the guys who backed Dylan when he went electric. This stuff is fantastic, not to be missed. Play any. No FCC’s.

1. (6:15) Mid. Levon on vcls. Blues classic, cool jammin’.
2. (3:55) Mid / Fast. Funky blues chugger. Fem. vcls.
3. (4:22) Mid. Bluesy gospel w/ killer mandolin, slide gtr.
4. (2:49) Mid. Levon on vcls. Killer funky blues walkin’.
5. (5:14) Mid. Upbeat drivin’ w/ back vcls.
6. (4:32) Mid. ‘Stagger Lee’ walkin’ w/ a southern flair.
7. (6:43) Mid. Dylan song, New Orleans jazzy take.
8. (4:14) Mid. Levon on vcls. Rockin’ countryish gallop.
9. (4:24) Slow. Nice country ballad w/ fem. vcl.
10. (3:50) Slow. A cappella w/ trio of fem. vcls.
11. (4:48) Mid. Allen Toussaint song and on vcl. Solid.
