Default The Last Waltz

I have listened to this epic album many times and love it. Tonight, I saw it on Amazon Video and clicked it thinking “Hell Yeah”.

It didn’t disappoint me.

It starts out with a graphic saying it is meant to be played Loud. I complied and never regretted it.

Call me late to the party but it just doesn’t get any better than the music from the epic ‘The Band’ and this true to the art movie.

I saw the film when it first came out in '78 and loved it.

How can it not be a great movie with Scorsese directing it.

Drove a wedge between Levon and Robbie that took years to resolve. Yes, a great documentary
