The Band - The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary Edition reissue album review

Album Review

Forever awesome – rock’n’roots aristocracy summit extended

With Levon Helm and legendary blues pianist Pinetop Perkins having joined Messrs Danko, Manuel, Muddy and Pops Staples in the great ballroom in the sky, the album title, memorialised in Scorsese’s 1978 concert film, becomes ever more prophetic.
