Love For Levon (2CD)

Love For Levon
Love For Levon (2CD)



STAR-STUDDED TRIBUTE FOR LEVON HELM OF THE BAND – A BENEFIT CONCERT TO SAVE THE BARN


 


Dozens of luminaries from rock, soul, and country—artists as diverse as Roger Waters, Mavis Staples, and My Morning Jacket—gathered at the Meadowlands’ Izod Center on October 3, 2012, to pay their collective respects in an incredible final tribute to Levon Helm, longtime drummer/singer/mandolin player of The Band, who passed away in April.


 


The LOVE FOR LEVON concert—mounted by producers Keith Wortman and Don Was—was an opportunity to say a rousing farewell and, in the process, raise funds to continue the Midnight Ramble series of concerts started by Levon and his band seven years earlier at “The Barn,” his famous home studio in Woodstock, New York. That evening, one at a time, or in pairs, music royalty took turns in the spotlight, singing songs associated with Levon Helm and The Band. The extravaganza features 27 songs capped by a full group finale of The Weight, one of Levon’s greatest moments. On this magical night, everyone felt the outpouring of love toward Levon.


 


2-CD SET -- LOVE FOR LEVON features 27 performances, including:
Roger Waters teaming with My Morning Jacket on The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and turning in a poignant performance of Wide River to Cross
Dazzling guitar licks from John Mayer on Tennessee Jed and Tears of Rage
My Morning Jacket rocking the house on Ophelia and It Makes No Difference
Joe Walsh burning through Up on Cripple Creek accompanied by Robert Randolph on pedal steel guitar
Country singer Eric Church doing A Train Robbery and the Band’s Get Up Jake
A stirring solo by Grace Potter on I Shall Be Released
Moving performances of Rockin’ Chair and Chest Fever from Dierks Bentley
Warren Haynes blazing through The Shape I’m In and rocking the bluesy Long Black Veil with former bandmate Gregg Allman
Lucinda Williams delivering a touching Whispering Pines
