Other than the Beatles, I can’t think of a more influential group of musicians from my generation. With Rick, Richard and Levon gone now, we can only capture the spirit of their music in the work of Amy Helm, Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Jim Weider and others that centered their talents and hearts around Levon’s barn in Woodstock. But it’s great to go back and see the real deal. Here they are in their prime. Wow, what great music, and great musicians. They really did invent what we now call Americana.
