I just finished another audio book. This one is ‘Testimony’ by Robbie Robertson of The Band, who backed up Bob Dylan when he went electric. Robbie also had lots of success on his own after The Band.
I gained a greater appreciation for Robbie when he made his later solo recordings influenced by his native american heritage.
This audio book focuses more on The Band and all the wonderful musicians, songwriters and business people that make the industry work. To close out the era, The Band worked with movie director Martin Scorsese to film their final performance.
The movie is The Last Waltz, which I watched last night too. The movie includes performances with The Band joined by Van Morrison, Bob Dylan,Joni Mitchell, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Neil Young and many more.
Check with your local library first. My library carried the audio book – free.
The movie is available from several sources including Netflix.
