Guest deleted_19765 Posted February 7, 2009 Share Posted February 7, 2009 (edited) One development over the last few months for me has been the full-flowering of my love for The Band. I really love Richard Manuel's voice and the songs he sings lead on in particular, although Danko and Helm are excellent singers as well. I was saddened in watching The Last Waltz again last night, Richard only really sings on one song. He was probably in pretty poor shape at this point.To quote a phrase too often employed, The Band were pretty far ahead of their time. They mixed some of the newer developments in Rock music at the time with various American traditional forms to create something not too dissimilar to what would be called "Alt. Country" in the '90s.The Levon Helm Band is a great live act to catch today!Anyway, any other fans of The Band?
