(2016/Rox Vox) 13 tracks, legendary radio recordings
on from their iconic Last Waltz in San Francisco. Rick Danko, Levon
Helm, Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel reunited, performing (with backup
from the Cate Brothers) to rapturous receptions in the US and Canada.
Manuel in particular was on better from than he'd been for years, as the
band iore through a selection of classics from their back catalog, as
well as the new track Jaca Blues, and numerous oldies they'd played
during their long apprenticeship. This remarkable set was broadcast on
WXRT-FM at the outset of their reunion, and is presented here with
background notes and images.
