The Band – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (Live at The Last Waltz in 1978)

The Last Waltz was the second to last show at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Grateful Dead performed the last, closing Winterland with a legendary show on New Year’s Eve in 1978. On Thanksgiving, The Band staged their awesome Last Waltz. “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” is one of the highlights, performed with a horn section. It’s outstanding. Levon Helm is drumming and singing up a storm. A killer performance.
