I like what he has done with this song over the decades. When he wrote After the gold rush, he was talking about the 1970s, later it became the 80s and the 20th century and now it is the 21st century. An ageless song. Neil, playing solo, blending his piano and harmonica (non professional recording, beautiful).

This one is for you, bibzgi. I listen to this all the time. Duane Allman and Eric Clapton, jamming.

deya, I know you like Miss Franklin, maybe you never heard this version of this great song, here she is with Duane playing The Bands classic, The Weight.

That's a great version of The Weight, Bo I only knew the Smith one from the Easy Rider soundtrack.

This is the story behind that version. The original version of The Weight was written by Robbie Robertson of The Band and recorded by The Band, thats the version that was used in the film. The original song was not licensed for the soundtrack. So, the studio that did the soundtrack contracted Smith to play the song for the album.

Yes : ) I saw the movie in my teens so I know the original version and the story behind the album, but the LP version is the one I'm familiar with.

When I went to find the Youtube link I was a bit surprised to see some less than flatterong comments about the Smith version. I really like it myself.

Yes, the Smith version is good. But don't be surprised about the comments, for purist The Band fans, if Rick Danko is not singing the crazy Chester verse, the song ain't it.

The Staple sisters singing along The Band.

Thanks for the Aretha Franklin, Bo. Bookmarked, never heard it before. Great song

bibzgi; - Frampton Comes Alive! ... I have the double album - vinyl. One of my favourite tracks from that album is Doobie Wah;

Funky

Good to hear Bad Company as well. Too many favourites of theirs to mention. But this one is up there in the top three. Wild Fire Woman;

Very good band

I think so too. Joni Mitchell talks about that in her interview you posted a few days ago. I also like songs that tell a story, like this one about Johnny, by Bad company.
