Helpless: The Last Waltz


Recommended Posts

Oh man... it was the Last Waltz that did it for me. Upon buying a DVD player, I thought to moyself... "I heard the Last Waltz is a great rock 'n roll movie" - so I picked it up and it definately blew me away. The commentaries are great too.... The scene where clapton's guitar strap gives way and Robbie picks up the solo without losing a beat? Too much...

I even picked up the box set, which has one more clapton tune, two more joni mitchell tunes, 3 more dylan tunes, a bobby charles song, one more muddy waters tunes, another neil young song, rehearsal stuff from the previous day, longer solos, lots more great band songs not on the DVD or album, another 'jam' (bbrrrrrr) and a great book on it. It's not in the movie, but Ronnie Hawkins talks about it in one of the commentaries, and it's on the box set... but Neil Diamond starts off by saying, "I'm only gonna play one song... but I'm gonna play it gooood". Dry your eyes Neil.

I'm gonna have to put it on right now....
