Listening to the soundboard recording of the Last Waltz ("The Lost Waltz") tonight, the only complete version out there. Even the official box set is missing a few songs. Such a great show!!!

I'm with AF on this one.

If one's only exposure to The Band was "The Last Waltz" they would assume that Robbie Robertson was the undisputed band leader. Just not the case.
You've been too heavily influenced by Levon Helm's whining. I first saw the film when I knew very little about The Band and was not left with that impression.

Kind of the concert equivalent of a fluffer?

LOL but semi-serious by naming some of the best shows I ever attended. Add Guitar Wolf to the list.

My parents saw the Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, Doors, Mingus, Miles Davis, Monk, Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard, Brubeck, Zappa Mothers of Invention, Seeds, Yardbirds, Animals, Steppenwolf, Jefferson Airplane, Sly Stone, CCR, Teh Dead, Blue Cheer, etc.

Yet my crazy 80's & 90's Bay Area show stories at least equaled some of their more accomplished ones.

And my older cousin saw Flipper, The Dead Kennedys, Misfits OG lineup, Black Flag, Zero Boys, Bad Brains, Husker Du, The Replacements, Minor Threat, Circle Jerks, JFA, Adolescents, Agent Orange, TSOL, Angry Samoans, VOID (!), Fear, MDC, Gray Matter, etc.

He's the one I truly admire.

Just some food for thought...

^^ i fucking love wattstax but mainly for the interviews and asides. the concert footage rules, too, but i'm way more into the glimpse of society it provides.
