The Band - The night they drove old dixie down

Here's where we go to kick back after the races with our pals. Pour a tall one, punch a few buttons on the jukebox, and relax...

Cool song that I haven't heard in a long time.

The Band was simply the best group that North America ever produced, my humble opinion...my favorite Band album is The Basement Tapes...delayed release for around 8 years but it's a double album that is absolutely jam-packed with beautiful, heart-wrenching songs, both by Dylan and the Band. "Tears Of Rage" is on that album; I don't know if it's on another one, but there's this easy-rolling vibe to the whole deal. "Dixie" was sure enough a masterpiece, every time I hear it it gives me chicken skin...RIP Richard Manuel and Rick Danko. Levon Helm is still going strong...Robbie Robertson is a noted producer, I visited Garth Hudson's website from the link on Levon Helm's website. He still plays but he's semi-retired now...great post, Bob! Cheers, WC1
