Love for Levon: A Benefit to Save the Barn

Jump to “More items of this artist”

(Roots Rock/Country Rock/Blues/Folk) 2013 StarVista - es geht um die legendäre Scheune in Woodstock von Americana/Rock-Godfather Levon Helm, in der diese großartigen "Midnight Rambles" all die Jahre stattfanden - außergewöhnliche Sessions unter Beteiligung von Stars und Talenten der weiteren Roots/Americana-Szene mit einer exquisiten House Band unter Leitung des gefeierten, mehrfach ausgezeichneten und mit so vielen verschiedenen Topprojekten betrauten Musikers Larry Campbell und mit Levon Helm mittendrin, soweit es seine dahinsiechende Gesundheit bis zu seinem Tod im April 2012 überhaupt noch zuließ. Das fulminante 'Love For Levon'-Konzert mit einem enormen Staraufgebot zugunsten der Weiterführung jener Scheunenaktivitäten fand am 3. Oktober 2012 vor 20.000 glücklichen Zuschauern im Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey statt. Über 2 CDs mit einer Gesamtspieldauer von 142 Minuten verteilt erleben wir 27 klassische Stücke aus dem umfangreichen Repertoire dieses großen Musikers Levon Helm, darunter natürlich reichlich Songs aus dem Backkatalog von The Band, einige Blues-Standards, 'Tennessee Jed' von Grateful Dead, mehrere Dylan-Titel und andere Highlights. Das Besondere an diesem Livemitschnitt sind vielleicht nicht einmal die vielen Stars, die sich hier die Ehre geben, sondern die Tatsache, dass zwei - sich personell sogar überschneidende - überragende House Bands für einen komplett einheitlichen Basissound und damit für einen ungebrochenen Flow sorgen, in den man von 'The Shape I'm In' bis zur abschließenden Zugabe von 'The Weight' (mit allen Beteiligten zusammen auf einer Bühne!) eintauchen kann. Die All Star Band besteht aus Larry Campbell (Guitars, Mandolin, Fiddle, Vocals), Greg Leisz (Guitars), Brian Mitchell (Keyboards, Accordion), Don Was (Bass), Kenny Aronoff (Drums) sowie Amy Helm & Teresa Williams (Vocals). Bei der Levon Helm Band ersetzen Jim Weider (The Band), Byron Isaacs (Ollabelle) und Justin Guip (Ersatz- und Co-Drummer von Levon Helm bei den "Midnight Rambles") Leisz, Was und Aronoff. Eine 5-köpfige Bläsersection tritt von Zeit zu Zeit als Verstärkung dazu. Und die Featured Stars? Singen und spielen mit grenzenloser Leidenschaft ganz nach dem Motto des Events! Warren Haynes, Gregg Allman, Jorma Kaukonen, Marc Cohn, Mavis Staples, Allen Toussaint, John Prine, Bruce Hornsby, Jakob Dylan, John Hiatt, David Bromberg & Joan Osborne, Grace Potter, Ray LaMontagne, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, John Mayer, Joe Walsh & Robert Randolph, My Morning Jacket und Roger Waters. Hey, Roger Waters? Jawohl, selbst der Pink Floyd-Mann, den Helm anlässlich der Aufführung von 'The Wall' kennengelernt hatte, macht hier gar keine schlechte Figur!


Dozens of luminaries from rock, soul and country gathered at the Meadowlands Arena on October 3, 2012, for an incredible tribute to Levon Helm, The Band s late drummer/singer/mandolin player (who passed away in early 2012). The concert, directed by bassist Don Was, was an opportunity to say a final farewell and, in the process, raise money for the ongoing Midnight Ramble series of concerts still held at The Barn, Helm s famous home-studio in Woodstock, New York. One at a time or, sometimes, in pairs, rock-royalty took turns in the spotlight over the course of the evening, singing songs associated with Levon Helm and The Band including "Up On Crippled Creek," "The Shape I m In," "Life is a Carnival," "Ophelia," "The Weight," "Rag Mamma Rag," "I Ain t Got No Home," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."
