Joe,

Thanks for posting the Robbie Robertson song.

The first time I ever heard Emmylou was doing this song in The Last Waltz. Her voice truly sent a chill down my spine, I will always remember that moment. I've since got a lot of her CD's. And Levon Helm is one of my favourite singers, the combination of those two singing this song with the rest of The Band harmonizing was magical.

Apparently due to throat cancer Levon can't sing anymore. What a loss.
