    I read somewhere that the version of "The Night They Drove Ole Dixie Down" from the Last Waltz, is considered one of the best live concert performances caught on film.
    I gotta agree. That was Levon and The Band at their very best.

    I'm also fond of Rick Danko singing "It Makes No Difference".
    He really puts his heart and soul into that song.
    But let's not tell Cignus2112. It might push him over the edge.;)

    Man I just got into that film like 6 months ago and I have been playing it steady since. You have nailed the same two songs I consider high points of the film. Love it.!

    Wow! My all time favorite rock documentary directed by Martin Scorsese featuring my all time favorite (The) Band. Doesn't get much better than that! I would have loved to have been up there to see it live at The Winterland Ballroom in SF. Gonna have to pull the DVD out again this weekend.

    Levon said that version of "Dixie" was probably the best they ever did. If anyone has read his book they know he had a very negative opinion of The Last Waltz concept. Robbie just sprung it on them about 2 months before it happened, he was tired of the road, they would keep on making records though (which was total bullshit on his part). A manager pulled Levon aside and said there were too many guests on the show and Muddy Waters (who Levon picked) was gonna be dropped. Levon flipped because no one in the Band gave a shit about Neil Diamond. He was only there because Robbie had produced his latest album (and co-written that song). So yeah, let's dump a guy who influenced us and keep Diamond just so Robbie gets an even bigger cut of the $.

    It's an ok movie but knowing how Robbie was such a dick to them and how Levon is the only one who refused to overdub his parts in the studio, it's not something I revisit too often when I wanna listen to The Band.

    Two things I try and do at Thanksgiving every year, are to watch "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" and "The Last Waltz".
    Each is great in it's own right.
    PT&A is a personal favorite. Steve Martin and John Candy are perfectly cast.
    So many quotable lines in that movie.

    As their car is traveling on the wrong side of the interstate.
    SM :"He says were going the wrong way".
    JC: "Aw, he's drunk and besides, how does he know where we're going ?"

    I listen to Alice's Restaurant every year. Please don't make a mockery of this.
    I do love the Last Waltz and love listening to their voices. Richie Manuel can bring tears to my eyes.

    I listen to Alice every year too
    This thread inspired me to watch the movie with family on Tday
    It was really good. Manuel was a real musical genius and no one could sing as well on top of melodies like Danko.
    Levon has one of those perfect rock n roll voices like Segar, Ozzy, Elvis, Axelrose and vanMorrison.

    Dr John's eyebrows were impeccable

    You know i heard that too that Levon was the only vocals not overdubbed.
    The Muddy Waters part was priceless but it looked like it was shot with only one camera.
