The Weight

Levon Helm, Rick Danko, and Robbie Robertson on vocals on one of the great songs of all time IMO. This live version is from the Woodstock Festival in 1969. Big controversy on who wrote the song himself and whether Robbie was a shithead. Yeah, he probably was, but no matter now.

RIP Robbie Robertson

The Weight


Monday morning the signal goes out and Josh Turner’s friends and family from around the country check in to sing this wonderful version of The Weight. That’s Josh’s dad and mom in the opening lines. Great work by Josh on putting the video together.

“Turn It Up, Turn It Up, A Little Bit Higher, Radio”: Van Morrison’s Caravan


Monday morning turn up your radio to hear Van Morrison backed by The Band.

Morrison was famously inconsistent and erratic in live performance, but Martin Scorsese caught one of Van’s greatest performances in this rendition of “Caravan” for Scorsese’s film The Last Waltz.

Attempt to decipher lyrics at your own peril.
