*My Favorites*: They are all incredible.
1. (3:58) Mid / Fast. Intro, then a Band classic with cool organ, horns, backing vocals. Rockin’ blues and jazz.
2. (4:54) Mid. Chuck Berry tune with kickin’ piano, plodding beat, great vocals by Levon. Nice guitar and horn solos.
3. (3:33) Mid. Featuring Little Sammy Davis on vocals and harmonica. Loping pace with a nice response from the crowd.
4. (4:13) Mid. Another featuring Davis, really bluesy with harmonica and horns. Bad ass.
5. (3:31) Slow / Mid. Another Band song, this one with Sheryl Crow accompanying Levon on vocals. A bit different from the Band version but done really well. The accordion and mandolin sound great here.
6. (4:01) Slow / Mid. Crow singing a Carter Family song. Steady beat with accordion.
7. (4:43) Slow. A Buddy Miller tune done here by Buddy. This was on Levon’s Dirt Farmer. I prefer Levon’s version slightly better, but it is done quite well here, with backing vocals. This song always elicits strong emotions. It is a GREAT song.
8. (7:12) Mid. Traditional song (notably done by Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead). There’s some great playing here, it stretches out a bit and gets into a really good groove. Great horn solo.
9. (4;02) Slow. Another from Levon’s Dirt Farmer. Just strings, really sparse with nice vocals by Levon, with backing vocals.
10. (4:21) Mid. A Band classic, fairly faithful to the original. Piano, guitars, drums, sung by Levon. Killer piano.
11. (2;44) Mid / Fast. Sung by Teresa Williams, jamming guitars, piano drums, well done.
12. (5:41) Slow / Mid. Final song from Levon’s Dirt Farmer, about a train robbery. It’s got that slow chugging pace, like a train. Great harmonizing, led by Levon.
13. (4:43) Mid / Fast. Another Band classic, really channels the original by The Band. Levon’s voice sounds just wrecked - but it’s perfect. The band is really tight, with nice keys, drumming and horns to boot.
14. (7:03) Mid. Band song with longish electric guitar intro. Horns, keys, pounding beat. Nice, short, jazzy change with about 4:00 remaining. They stretch out a bit after this, then change back. They really jam it toward the end.
15. (6:13) Mid. Levon thanks the Ryman, then one of The Band’s best-known songs, here featuring John Hiatt on vocals. Nice understated harmonica solo, the whole band kickin’ ass.
