Turn it Up (O, Child)

Jonathan Rowe, over at Positive Liberty, posted a link to Ophelia from The Last Waltz. Because I’ve been a fan of The Band since I was a little kid, I’m upping the ante, with “Carivan” with Van, the Man, who just tosses the mic and walks off stage at the end:


and “Mannish Boy,” with you know who and Paul Butterfield (and by the way, I’m pretty sure 5 minutes ain’t a man):

and “Evangeline,” with Emmylou Harris:

All this justified as me telling you a bit about myself, but really they’re here so I can find them later. Just be glad I didn’t give you “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” and “Up On Cripple Creek,” too.

    Cool. Yes, those Youtube pages are great.

    One of the greatest concerts of all time. But my favorite moment is Neil Young’s cameo, where you can make out the big blog of coke in his left nostril.
