Real nice write up in The New York Times about the wake held out at Levon's place in Woodstock earlier today. Hopefully the Rambles will continue in some form or fashion.

All Star performance of "The Weight" from the AMA's at the Ryman in Nashville, TN earlier this week. More on the performance from Relix.

well I`m a fan of the band. my album is the band, live album is rock ages. is there any one`s list have gotten what you will say is a better live album.

You need to grab disc two of Bob Dylan's LIVE 1966, issued as part of The Bootleg Series. One of the greatest -not to mention historic- live performances by anyone you will ever hear.

"Play fucking loud!!!" - Bob Dylan, Manchester 17 May 1966
